Occasion wear maternity & nursing dress


Maternity & breastfeeding occasion wear dress

From bump to baby, this beautiful dress is designed to evolve with you through the motherhood journey. Cut from a silky off-white luxurious fabric, the full tiered skirt makes it a stunning maternity dress for special occasions, with a shirred back and billowy arms that allow the dress to comfortably stretch across the back.

Once you’ve had the baby, the under-bust zips, concealed under a contemporary Portuguese ladder-trim detail, make it a beautiful breastfeeding-friendly dress for Christenings and other occasions. The high neck and v-shape shirred back ensure it delivers a flattering silhouette for the postpartum stage.

Elegance never goes out of fashion, and this is a dress that will be in your wardrobe for bumps and babies to come. This is also a beautiful option for a maternity bridal dress. 

Designed in house by CARI, and hand crafted in the UK to the highest quality and standard, we know you will love our unique and exclusive maternity garments just as much as we love creating them.

Fit Notes & Sizing

At CARI, we design for the motherhood journey and the changes your body goes through. Select your pre-pregnancy size, and if in doubt, consult the measurements for each garment. As well as using fabrics that have a natural stretch, our garments are expertly tailored for a maternity or postpartum fit, so the sizes have a broader range than standard.

R Armstrong
Beautifully designed

This dress hangs wonderfully and feels so comfortable yet it’s perfect for occasions such as parties or lunches out. The zips for feeding are very cleverly hidden and practical too.

I’ll be wearing this a lot I think with flat sandals and maybe a large rattan bag. I’m hoping I’ll be cool in the warmer weather as far as pregnancy allows!
All in all I’m very happy with this dress and the great service too - thank you 😊
