Perfecting your holiday look is stressful for everyone, but pregnant and nursing moms have a whole new list of things to be concerned about. Even with a brand new baby, new mothers want to look cute and stylish for the holidays, too. For expecting mothers, finding maternity holiday party dresses that look fashionable, complement your figure, and leave room for your growing belly is no easy feat — and it’s not much easier for nursing moms. Instead of throwing on a flashy gown, breastfeeding mothers have to think about nursing their little one throughout the night, forcing them to often choose a holiday nursing dress that’s more functional than fashionable.
If you’re struggling to find a look that’s both fashionable and functional, you’ve come to the right place! Here are our four favorite maternity and nursing dresses for the holidays!
Milk Nursingwear’s Favorite Maternity/Nursing Dresses for the Holidays
Easy-fit Style Featuring Pockets
While many maternity holiday party dresses look dull and boring, sometimes simple is the best option. An easy-fitting, comfortable dress with a trendy floral print, like our Black Floral Nursing and Maternity Dress, is the perfect choice for any holiday party. While this style is straightforward, it’s certainly not boring. The design falls loosely at the waist and features three-quarter sleeves. Don't miss the pockets - a big request from moms. In addition, this style expands around your belly to fit any stage of pregnancy.
Of course, this style also doubles as an ideal holiday nursing dress! The front layer lifts for openings that allow quick, easy access every time your baby needs to be fed. The simplicity of the style also allows you to dress it up however you want. Add your favorite jewelry, a cute pair of shoes, or a trendy bag, and you’ve got a holiday-friendly ensemble that’s as fashionable as it is functional!
A-line with Sleeve Details
The grommet and tie details on the sleeves make this a perfect choice for your maternity holiday party dress. If you’re looking for a more interesting design in your holiday fashion, our Swing nursing dress with grommets and ties will fit your needs. The A-line, swing fit is especially great for nursing moms. Much like the style featured above, the empire front panel can be lifted for easy breastfeeding access.
While this dress offers plenty of advantages for nursing moms, expecting mothers shouldn’t restart their search for maternity holiday party dresses just yet. This style also has plenty of benefits for pregnant moms. The flowy design of this dress expands to fit the growing belly of women at multiple stages of pregnancy. Plus, it’s comfortable and functional—a perfect choice for those looking for maternity holiday party dresses or just one holiday nursing dress that actually looks good!
Adjustable Wrap and Long Sleeves
While maternity holiday party dresses often feature an empire waist to create room for your expanding belly, expectant moms can still opt for a defined waist that sits a little lower. A chic wrap and attached self-fabric belt, like our Wrap nursing and maternity dress, creates a dressy look that's both fun and fashionable. This stylish design features long sleeves to keep your warm during the colder holiday season. The adjustable wrap allows you to tie above or below the belly, as loose or tight as you please, ensuring that you feel as great as you look all evening long.
Breastfeeding is simple and discreet, just move aside the wrap front fabric on either side to access openings. The under-panel helps provide great coverage so it's not too revealing. The dual-function capabilities, for expecting and nursing mothers alike, make this style a great buy any time -- so it's a don't-miss for your next maternity holiday party dress.
Three-Quarter Sleeves and a Navy Dot Print
If you’re looking for maternity holiday party dresses, a three-quarter sleeved style with a cute dot print, like our Navy dot maternity and nursing dress, is a perfect choice. The flowy fit creates a look that's highly flattering and comfortable, no matter which stage of pregnancy you're in.
If you’re a nursing mom looking for a holiday nursing dress, this style still suits you perfectly, too! The panel at the front lifts for easy breastfeeding access, no matter where you might be. When it comes to nursing dresses, this chic gown is one of our favorites! With the right accessories, you’ll be ready to celebrate the holidays in style (and comfort!)
