What could possibly be more chic than a black gown? Not much. They're appropriate attire for any event and cater to the wearer's personal style since any accessory can change its overall look. A little black nursing dress (LBND) is a closet must for every mom.
The ZAC by Zac Posen for Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear gown may not exactly be nursing- or mom-friendly, but do not fear! Rachel Pally's sleeveless black caftan dress is the perfect stylish alternative.
The soft stretch fabric of Pally's gown is an absolute dream! It's made of modal and spandex which allows the fabric to cater to any mom's shape before, during and after pregnancy. What's even better is that although the tag reads "dry clean only," I've found that washing it on the hand wash cycle and lying it flat to dry works just as well.
The other plus with this caftan dress is its deep v-neck cut which provides easy access for all the nursing moms out there.
More importantly, I LOVE how I can wear this dress as-is during the day, then dress it up at night with a belt and clutch for a dinner date. It's really the most versatile nursing- and mom-friendly floor length black gown out there.
