Cotton Muslin...What It Is And Why We Love It!

When you're shopping for a maternity or breastfeeding dress for your trans-seasonal wardrobe, it's so important to choose fabrics that are soft, comfortable, breathable, and durable.

Cotton muslin ticks all these boxes - and that's why it makes a great fabric for maternity dresses.

So... What is Cotton Muslin?

Cotton muslin is a woven material made from cotton fabric fibres. Finely woven and lightweight, cotton muslin is gentle on the skin, soft, lightweight and airy. 

Sometimes confused with linen because of its appearance, muslin is generally much softer and easier to care for than linen. 

Our new Puff Sleeve Midis are made in a lush 100% cotton muslin. Wearing this dress feels like wrapping yourself in a giant cloud! 


Cotton Muslin is super soft 

Not only is cotton muslin super soft... the more you wash it, the softer it will get! Soft and comfy clothing is SO important when you're pregnant, caring for a baby - or for all stages of mum-life! 


Cotton Muslin is durable

Cotton Muslin may be super soft - but it's also incredibly durable. It can withstand countless washes and wears, and will stand up to whatever your busy day throws your way! 

This means your new cotton muslin pieces will be firm favourites in your wardrobe for years to come.

Cotton Muslin breathes 

Cotton Muslin is a lightweight and loosely woven fabric, that allows for airflow. This is one of the reasons why it is an ideal fabric for maternity and breastfeeding dresses. 

Cotton Muslin looks amazing! 

Incorporating cotton muslin in your capsule wardrobe is a simple way to elevate your everyday style. Cotton muslin creates a relaxed yet refined look, and cotton muslin dresses look effortlessly stylish.

Pair with boots or slides, and add a jacket and statement jewellery, for an understated yet casually confident look. 


Cotton Muslin is low maintenance!

Caring for your cotton muslin clothing is fairly simple - which is a plus when you're a parent! We recommend washing on a gentle cycle, in cold or cool water, and hanging in the shade to dry. Tip: Hang your cotton muslin pieces on a coat hanger to ensure minimal creasing.

Muslin is also known for drying quickly, which is a plus! 

Is Muslin only ever made from cotton?

Muslin can be blended with other fabrics, but we only use 100% cotton muslin for our breastfeeding dresses. That's because cotton muslin is soft, silky, and light - making it ideal for pregnant and nursing mamas.
