I already had this same nursing gown in black from my 3rd child, so when I found out we'd be having #4 I knew I wanted a 2nd one. This is by far the best nursing gown I have tried! The top stays closed fairly well, though I get pretty top heavy and I've yet to find a criss-cross type top that truly covers completely. The length (mid-calf) is wonderful - not too long but not short either. The material, which has held up really well through numerous washings, feels light and breathable, even through our very hot desert summers. This is my first time wearing the nightie pregnant and it fits just beautifully - plenty of room for my growing belly, yet I know it will fit well after the pregnancy too. Best of all, this night is pretty and feminine without being frilly. Love love love!
