Breastfeeding Bridesmaid

I'm never quite sure where to put my questions, not sure if this is the appropriate place! I am 6 weeks post partum with my 3rd dd. I am in my friends wedding at the end of June and need to get a black nursing dress, tea length or so. It is so hard to find them though! Does anyone have a company they have had good success with? I think I'll have to order online, because there are no stores near me that seem to have any nursing wear. I've never had the kind of body that allows just buying something without trying it on and having it work. To top it off, I'd prefer to be a bit more modest then most nursing dresses seem to be. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would go for a v-neck wrap style dress rather than a nursing dress. They are easy to nurse in. I've also nursed in strapless dress (in privacy) by just pulling it completely down off my chest.

I just came across the idea of using a wrap dress as you sent this! Thank you! Then i could find one I could try on. They do tend to go lower then i like, but I'm sure I can come up with some sort of cami. This may have just totally made finding something possible! Thank you!

What about this one? It's below the knee length (42") and has a fairly high neckline. You could wear a bolero jacket or sweater to cover your arms.

Davids bridal style f13095 I'm wearing it in "fern" this weekend and it fits perfect without trying on. Itd fit 9m prego if it had to. You'd need it hemmed to tea length. Fabric is a nice jersey so no wrinkles.

My best friend was nursing her DD at the time of my wedding. She was able to wear the same dress as the other bridesmaids

I had no idea they even made that kind of dress-- thanks for posting

Beautiful! So do you have to pull it off your shoulder to nurse, or just to the side? Bookmarking all these suggestions!

I went and tried on some dresses, even though most wouldn't really work for nursing. It was nice to see that I didn't look horrible, and was kinda encouraging. I was dreading wearing a dress with the jelly belly, but if I find the right one, I think I'll be ok
