Tested by mum Elizabeth Emmanuel for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Extremely comfortable.  Soft cotton, very feminine style.  Very practical for breastfeeding.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

As a breastfeeding Mum, it's nice to wear something that makes me feel pretty and feminine.  The fact that it is also practical is a big bonus!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

This dress is great.  I wonder if there are short sleeved and longed sleeved versions for the not so hot summer days.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love how soft the dress is. So comfortable to wear and really soft against my son's skin.  The style is very flattering especially for postpartum tummies. As a busy Mum, I sometimes find I run out of clothes before I've managed to get all the ironing done. This dress doesn't show creases. So it’s a great time saver too.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Feeding is really easy as access to the breast is simple and also very discreet. It's also not really obvious that the dress is a breastfeeding dress. I had lots of comments about the dress, most were shocked that it was a feeding dress.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Would love for the dress to come in more colour patterns, as I would definitely buy it in lots of colours.

This dress is extremely good quality - the organic cotton is so soft. It feels absolutely gorgeous on. The function of the dress is also excellent - with the flaps for feeding it really does help without the need to get hot wearing two tops! The cut of the dress has also been thought about for mums who are carrying baby weight because the tie pulls in the waist and the length is just right without being too short.

The functionality of the dress is brilliant for breastfeeding - I found it really easy to get my bra undone and get my baby latched on without even showing any boob at all! This meant that I didn't need to be paranoid about exposing myself and didn't need to flap about with a cover or with lots of layers! I do think this dress has been well designed from a function point of view with new mums in mind.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The down side for me personally is I wasn't mad keen on the style of dress - the pattern wasn't very stylish in my opinion and was a little mumsy - although I am a mum, I like to feel stylish and I didn't feel this one was for me. I would have preferred a plainer print or perhaps no print at all. I also feel that £65 is far too much to pay for a dress of this type - I'd probably not even spend that on an occasion dress and this is a daytime dress. I wouldn't recommend this dress due to the price.

This is so, so, so comfortable to wear and to breastfeed. It looks so beautiful on and is so flattering. The breastfeeding drop pouch is easy to use and easy to cover up, there is a tie which allows the dress to expand and tighten with ease

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

So easy to breastfeed when out and about. I can do it much more quickly as can literally pop breast in and out of the feeding areas and stay covered up elsewhere. Nice and stretchy so it retains comfort.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would like the whole collection and I love this dress!

Tested by mum Heather Harkness for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Frugi is a brilliant, organic brand that makes good quality clothing for both mother and baby. The summer tie breastfeeding dress was no exception. The material is lovely and soft, feels thicker, therefore will last longer. It was very comfortable, the breastfeeding part was discreet and it certainly didn't look like a dress exclusively for breastfeeding. The pattern was up to date and pretty, and the dress washes well. With an RRP of £65 this dress is quite pricey, however the quality reflects this and therefore is an investment.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I can breastfeed discretely in public without the worry of showing too much! Definitely makes life easier!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I'd add some kind of sleeves and perhaps make it a little shorter as the design didn't suit my figure. Although I'm not short, it was very long on me, and I'm not keen on dresses without a sleeve! But that's just me, other than that it's a lovely dress.
