Posh frocks & breastfeeding

I've got two weddings and a christening over the next fortnight and am desperatly trying to find something suitable to wear which is also suitable for feeding in. At various 'posh' dos we've had so far this year I've tried wrap dresses with a nursing vest underneath but feel too exposed when the dress is pulled to the side.

What have you ladies worn to posh dos and successfully fed in? I'm running out of ideas and shops to look at now....

What about a 'long' (by that I mean thigh level) tunic dress thing over some trousers! That way you can just pull the dress thing up. I do it with jeans and tunicey type tops.

RE: Posh frocks & breastfeeding

I agree with Philippa--you're better with separates--but if you want really posh it could be a loosish top with a skirt (any length you like)
Nice to hear you can take baby Bubble with you. :smile:

When I went to a weddng I got an off the shoulder top that I could pull my boob out of the top of and a wrap so I could cover her while she fed.

I've been having the same problem (not that i've been to many posh do's recently) and have tried on so many things and then gone back to trousers or a skirt and a nice top.
