LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! It's comfy, extremely easy to nurse in, yet also supportive. Can definitely be worn out of the house. The Merlot color is beautiful, and I also have it in black and wear one or the other almost every night. If, like me, you are on the bustier side, the nursing pad slots won't be at the right spot, but that's minor.
It's also great for maternity (I wore one of mine during the last couple months), but just know that your belly will stretch it out A LOT (especially under the bust), making the fit a little less flattering once you give birth/drop the baby weight.
An absolute must-have!
