    Default The Perfect 'Mum' dress..?

    Ladies help!! I'm looking for some great casual dresses to chuck on and am struggling to find anything I like!
    I have 2 children, one only 4 weeks old so I want my 'mum tum' covered (nothing tight) and nothing too short as I bend over the pram etc.

    Does the 'perfect' day dress exist? Where should I look???

    Thanks

    Do you like maxi dresses? I used to wear them quite a bit and just pulled one shoulder down to BF.

    Yeah I don't mind Maxi's, I haven't found any I really like, any suggestions where to look?

    I've just picked up a couple of mid length skirts which look great with a singlet & sandals & hide the Mum tum. Might be an alternative for you?

    I haven't tried skirts as I was afraid it would accentuate the 'thickness' in my waist atm but I may have to give them a go, where did you get them from?

    I find shift style dresses are good for us mums who have a little extra around the mid section.

    This dress is actually awesome too - the brand is Firefly and it's the Amber dress. Very flattering and comes in a huge range of colours/patterns. When I bought mine I shopped around as I didn't want to pay full price (which I believe is $99 now) and I got one for $45.

    This is the Amber dress:

    I got one from Sportsgirl which is patterned & one from Myer which is Milk & Honey brand & plain. You can alternate colours of tops to mix it up. I have tight & loose singlets, both look good.

    I'm not the best person for fashion advice but just find you don't get caught up in them when getting up & down like a maxi.

    I get all my dresses from Frankie And Co (had actually just done some online shopping when I chose my username!) All their clothes are fantastic 'mum' clothes, I swear by them. So easy to wear!IMG_1481530661.120610.jpg
