I’m small-busted so I think that makes things a lot easier for me. I’m thinking strapless would be the way to go, at least that’s what would work best for me. I would probably stay away from corset backs and buttons if you think you’re going to have to undo anything to nurse. I wore a y-neck dress as a guest to a wedding that I had to undo to the waist in order to nurse, so I pretty much had to nurse in a bathroom stall. Yuck! My daughter is still nursing at 19 months but I am working on weaning so I should be done by the wedding.

Are you currently expecting or are you currently nursing? Don’t forget the leakage factor- if you have any issues with it you want to be able to change breast pads easily. I didn’t leak past the first few months with either child, but my friend still leaks after almost a year. Just something to keep in mind!

I second a zipper back. My corset back is pretty much being done up and staying that way because it takes so long to get tied. A zipper would allow access much easier.

If you don’t find a dress to allow you to Boyfriend or Best Friend, can you express a bottle or two before hand?
