Today I’m reviewing the Ada jumpsuit – think beachy boho vibes with a relaxed oversized fit. It is sleeveless, featuring a front bib that unbuttons at each shoulder to fold down for feeding functionality. There’s a gathered waistline, wide cropped legs, keyhole back and pockets (yay!).

Designed and handmade in the UK, the jumpsuit comes with a sweet little card with the name of your seamstress on it. The material is a lovely soft 100% linen. It’s prewashed which I love – no surprise shrinkage! It’s medium thickness, I felt plenty warm in it with a long sleeved top underneath for the cool Scottish days, however the material would be lightweight enough and breathable to wear alone for summer, or even with a short sleeved tee or crop top underneath. As you’d expect for an item handmade in the UK, this is a quality item – faultless sewing and no issues with cut or tailoring. This feels like a durable investment piece!

For the all important breastfeeding access there are sturdy (vegetable pulp!) buttons, two at each shoulder. They are large enough to easily and quickly undo with one hand whilst holding a baby! The button holes aren’t too stiff, but are well sewn so that the buttons won’t slip out. You could unbutton one shoulder or two and fold half or the whole bib down. If you’re wearing a top underneath it makes for a very discreet feed, obviously less so without. My toddler (now dry nursing – oh the joys) is far too busy these days and declined to oblige for a feeding pic however this is a really easy outfit to breastfeed in!

Sizing wise this is definitely an outfit for those who like an oversized fit. The wide cropped legs are voluminous for a baggy relaxed look, and the gathered waistline nips in (and drops down at the back) and is very flattering.

The jumpsuit can be worn maternity or otherwise. I wore it when 21 weeks pregnant and there is ample growing room for more bump! I’m 5”6 but quite long bodied so my first concern with jumpsuits is always the crotch – I am pleased to confirm there was no camel toe at all! Phew. Lengthwise it was almost full length on me, if you’re any taller it would be more of a cropped look.

My pre-pregnancy size is 14 and I wore a size M which the sizing guide advises is for a size 12-14. If I was wearing non pregnancy I’d be tempted to size down to a small. However I thought it was perfect for me just now, any smaller and I think it would make squeezing a larger bump in more difficult.

I recommend you check out the Breast Dressed website for more pics, of pregnant and non pregnant ladies! The jumpsuit comes in several lovely colours, the washed navy I am wearing here, black, dusty pink, duck egg green and light copper shades. There’s a small range  of dresses and tops, in a similar relaxed fit vein and some matching baby rompers! If you’re into beautifully tailored, handmade, locally and ethically made items that ensure you look stylish while you breastfeed, I recommend Breast Dressed!
