As a new mom, there's one thing you should not have to spend any time worrying about. And that's your wardrobe.

Supremely functional, flattering, and versatile, every detail has been meticulously considered for the real lives of new moms. The WORKHORSE™ is infinitely more comfortable than your leggings, appropriate for a myriad of occasions from Zoom calls, to gardening, to date night, and we're so obsessed, it's the only design for women we sell.

This is the capsule wardrobe on steroids. 

THE Features

01. Made in the USA by expert dressmakers paid 3x a living wage

02. Luxuriously functional design, made for everyday wear

03. Backed by a Lifetime Repairs Guarantee

Deep pockets


Deep pockets hold keys, phone, pacifier, etc.—because who wants to hold a phone in one hand and keys in the other, while simultaneously trying to wrangle a toddler into a carseat?

Nursing Cover


An innovative, detachable nursing cover that you won't find anywhere else on the market. The upper torso and nursing cover are lined with 100% organic cotton—the parts that will touch your baby the most. Hidden snaps connect the nursing cover to the dress. When you take it off, you can't see those snaps so the dress also stands alone without the cover, post-nursing.

Sleeves


Sleeves that go to just at or below the elbows for an unrivaled, flattering silhouette. (FWIW, we have no idea why it's so hard to find dresses with good sleeves, but that stops here and now.)

Buttons


Buttons to open for nursing, and holes lined with a strip of stiffer material so the integrity holds up after repeated unbuttoning and buttoning. Fabric-covered so that they still match whatever accessories and shoes you choose.

Slimming sash

A slimming sash adds dimension. Wear it with or without. 
(There are no loops on the side of the dress that will stick out when you're not wearing the sash, thank goodness. 😘)

You better believe it.

a signature dress for Your little girl, too

Just like the dress for mom, it's one flawlessly designed style in a few select prints and colors. It features two-way stretch, it's lined with 100% organic cotton knitted, and printed, and sewn in the USA. Double-hemmed at the bottom, to be released as she grows. This dress is meant to be worn everyday, not only on special occasions.

Oh! And don't forget the pocket. (Every little girl needs a pocket.)
