I bought this because I want something cute to wear this summer while nursing. It's supposed to be a night gown, but it's too cute to sleep in. I plan to wear it as a tunic. It's long enough to wear as a dress (even with my big belly) but it's a little too sheer to wear without shorts or leggings underneath if you want to wear it out. I tried it out with a nursing bra to see how it might work. Definitely easy access while maintaining some modesty. I wish it came in solids too.
