This season, we’re indulging in pumpkin pie, autumnal hues, and versatile silhouettes. So, go on — go all out.

The Dream Dress


We’re all about elevated neutrals this fall… and this golden brown maxi will not only enhance your glow, it’ll keep you cool and comfy in 100% cotton (hey, pregnancy hormones). Featuring a smocked bodice, flowy skirt, and puffed long sleeves, this stunning off-the-shoulder piece will have you feasting this year in comfort and style. Bump appetit!

We love that the high neckline and long sleeves keep it warm, even when it’s cold as... Layered fabric is one of our favorite ways to make an outfit elevated — and in this case, it’s the secret to your brother-in-law not knowing you’re nursing. 

‘Tis The Season:
Holiday Dresses + Jumpsuits

Our favorite ways to dress the part this season? Play with texture, prints, and bust out the no-frill jumpsuit… and invest in pieces you can wear before *and* after babe. We love how layered fabric or a handy zipper can turn any outfit into a nursing staple. Style tip: channel your inner Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and add a neutral-colored trench coat to these pieces for some extra warmth. So chic.

It’s officially mocktail season, and this statement-makin’ maxi is ready to get the party started. It’s light, festive, and twirl-friendly… all our favorite adjectives. Made from 100% recycled materials, it’s also turning trash into this year’s holiday treasure. Let the good times roll.

Velvet Jumpsuit


Nothing screams “holiday” like head-to-toe velvet. With an adjustable waist, this jumpsuit is stretchy enough for the bump and polished enough for dinner with the in-laws (good luck, by the way). Pair it with low heels for an elevated look, or throw on some sneakers for a more low-key vibe.

NOM Alma Jumpsuit


Designed with a nursing friendly snap-down front, this midnight blue jumpsuit is one of our fave picks for winter. Made from 100% cotton gauze, it’s both soft and breathable — aka you won’t be sweating bullets under that winter coat. The adjustable sash is the real holiday star here; tighten it up for a more defined look and adjust the sash as your belly (or your dinner plate) grows.
