Before trying this dress, the name has special significance as it is shared with a wonderful little girl and so I really hoped that the dress would match up to the name….
I have previously tried a Discreet Bowtique dress and was very impressed, the quality and the excellent fit made the dress feel lovely to wear and extremely easy for breastfeeding. You could tell that the Discreet Bowtique dresses are made lovingly by local businesses and friends to owner Lucy.
The Kimberley dress is a great choice for occasions with added sparkle for the party season. The dress has a sparkly top layer, I love a bit of sparkle and it looks great accessorised with even more sparkle!
This top layer of fabric allows discreet and easy breastfeeding, and underneath the top layer are slits for nursing access. The slits are very neat and well finished, the attention to detail is excellent! The slits are great for breastfeeding along with the stretch of the dress too.
The top layer of fabric wraps fully round the dress with a stylish and modern split up the back. The top layer of the dress with the fit and style of the Kimberley dress means it does not look like a “breastfeeding dress”.
The Kimberley dress feels a delight to wear as the fit is excellent. The shape of the pencil type skirt is flattering, smart and comfortable too with the stretch of the fabric. The dress is not only comfortable and practical to wear but well designed to be flattering too.
The dress length sits just below the knee (I am 5ft 5) which looks stylish for evenings and practical for daytime with trainers too!
In terms of sizing the Discreet Bowtique sizing seems to be spot on with your usual dress size.
The Kimberley dress fabric is an excellent quality, it has a lovely thickness so it hangs well and also has a nice stretch so it is easy to move and chase little ones!
The design is sharp yet elegant and very well fitting. I would definitely wear this dress for breastfeeding and beyond!
For a quality handmade breastfeeding dress made by a small family UK business, I think this dress is very reasonably priced.
Whether for a meal out with little ones, for having milk access before and after a sneaky hour out, or for enjoying Christmas at home with the family, this dress is a great choice, and it is supporting a brilliant small business too. A dress definitely deserving of the name Kimberley ❤️
