I'm not normally one who wears nursing clothes (why, when you can just pull up a t-shirt), but I'd like a swimsuit that will be good for this summer and I'd love one high quality nursing dress for spring/summer activities (Easter, weddings, etc.).

Does anyone have any recommendations for stores? I've got a Motherwear catalog... do you have experience with them?

here's a bunch of links:

that last one has some great swimsuits, maternity and nursing, and now is the time to get them before people start ordering in droves and they get back-ordered.

Just wanted to add one more:

I know they're pricy, but I've been happy with most of the things I've gotten from them.

Edited to add: Um, durh, you asked about them! I do like them. I just had to figure out which style of shirt works for me (crop with two openings rather than side openings) and since then I've liked everything I've ordered from them.

I've ordered from Motherwear and really like their clothes. They also have a great return policy if you don't like what you get for whatever reason. I bought a pair of pajama pants from them that ripped after a month of use. I contacted them about it and they refunded my money.
They have a new nursing opening called a "tuckable"--I just got one of those shirts from them (a v-day gift from DH) and it is fabulous. I like that opening much better than others; it's easy and doesn't look like a nursing shirt *at all*.
They have some swimsuits and dresses in the clearance section of their website that you might want to check out.

i have lots of motherwear stuff, & I agree, it's comfortable & very high quality, but many of the items I have from them have such a wide neckline that it is impossible to wear a bra with them (after struggling with trying to get bras to fit 'off the shoulder, lol, I gave up & just wear that stuff at home.) make sure that what you get doesn't have such a big scoop of a neck that you can't wear it out! (presuming that you wear a bra to weddings even *I* do then!)

one more, a favorite of mine:

The summer after ds was born I wore a regular one piece suit with a Motherwear nursing tank top over it. (in the same color)
I would just slide the strap down over my shoulder and arm and then nurse him through the shirt.
Last summer I bought a Lands End sport tankini. I can kind of flip the shelf bra up over my breast and nurse him under the top. Of course this summer he will be 3, so I don't think it matters what kind of suit I am wearing...

I love my Motherwear swimsuit. It's flattering and I'm able to nurse without a giant towel over my shoulder.

I own a bunch of stuff from Motherwear and just love them. I just ordered a nursing swimsuit, too!
