From our reviewer, Dionna at Code Name: Mama:

About Milk Nursingwear

Elisa Minsk Hartstein was inspired to create Milk after the birth of her first daughter in 1997. She appreciated the functionality of nursingwear, but she found it lacking in style. Elisa wanted to feel attractive and fashionable, and so she launched Milk’s predecessor, Expressiva Nursingwear. She ran Expressiva for seven years until selling it and creating Milk.

She is proud of Milk and of what sets the company apart: excellent customer service; fresh, modern styles; support for mamas and female entrepreneurs; and a committment to responsible and ethical business practices.

Milk Nursingwear is available worldwide, and there are a variety of nursing fashions to please a world of tastes! Here are a few of my favorites:

What is your favorite product from Milk?

Goddess Nursing Lounge Dress

I selected the Goddess Nursing Lounge Dress to try from Milk. Having always been too frugal (ahem – cheap!) to buy nursing apparel beyond my everyday nursing tank tops, I was in heaven when I tried this on. The fabric is 95% cotton, 5% lycra, and unbelievably soft.

I put on the dress without telling Tom, and when I sauntered out to the living room, his eyes got huge. He thinks the dress is incredibly sexy, and he said that it looks like something I could go out to a party in. I’m not sure I agree – the neck droops a little too far down for my personal comfort level, so I doubt I would wear this out in public. But I wonder if someone who could fill out the top more (i.e., someone with a bigger chest than I have) might be able to wear this out without falling out.

The dress hits just above my knees, has an empire waist, and is a deep purple. It is also available in black, coral, and teal blue.

The ruffle detail at the waistband is adorable, and it is the ruffle that you lift up on in order to nurse.

It took me a minute to figure out what to lift – there is also a pocket for nursing pads, and the multiple linings confused me. (I told you I was a nursingwear novice!) Once I realized what everything was for, it was easy to lift the right layer and latch Ailia on.

Ailia was impressed by mama’s beautiful new dress.

The dress provides nursing mamas beauty and discretion without having to fiddle with nursing tank tops or bras. It is sexy and comfortable – I could see it being ideal lounge wear, sleepwear, or a perfect outfit for the beach or pool (if you don’t feel like swimming).

If you’re in between sizes, I’d ask one of Milk’s customer service reps if they would recommend going down a size. I ordered a medium, but because the material is so soft and stretchy, I almost think that I would be happier with a small. In fact, reading the comments on the site with respect to this dress, it looks like other mamas say the same thing – it runs a little big, and the straps are a tad loose. Other mamas also say that it easily covers a nursing bra, if you want to wear the dress out as a sundress.

The dress is machine wash and dry.


You can order the Goddess nursing lounge dress, or any of Milk’s beautiful nursingwear at their website.

    I already own the Milk chic crossover top and LOVE it, but I’m really jonesing for the sleeveless babydoll in pink print for the upcoming warm weather. So pretty!

  7. Tina

    I like the simple stuff, especially the Bravada nursing tank. I hardly ever wear bras anymore, because nursing tanks are my go-to bra now. I’d love to get a higher quality one like Bravada, since the ones I have now are a little ratty.
