This is a very soft, very thick, very flattering dress that downplays the postpartum pooch. Basically a regular dress that allows you to nurse. As a regular dress I find this flattering, but underwhelming/unexciting in style. As a nusing dress I find this awesome. The fact that it's reversible makes it even better. I bought the black w/ blk & white stripes. When you wear the dress black, there's an inch and a half or 2 inches of the black & white hem, which is cute. When wearing the stripe side, there is (of course) no hem stickig out -- so it's not just reversible identical dresses but 2 slightly different ones. ** Also, please note that the black and white stripes are pretty small and may be a tad dizzying for some. I am ok with it, tho. Can definitely be worn after nursing is over.
