The Dynamic Dria- A Multipurpose Nursing Cover


   Nursing covers are a lot like pants. They come in all different shapes, and some styles fit your body and your personality better than others. Take me for example - its hard to find a skinny jean that doesn't make my thighs and butt seem like they are the  width and breadth of a hippo. Instead, I seek out a dark wash, boot cut, mid to low rise. Very specific. Nursing covers are much the same. They have personality, there are specifics, they fit different personalities and needs. The Dria Cover, however, can be used to fit all of your needs, hence the title of this post, "The Dynamic Dria Cover."

 

        The Dria Cover can really multi-task. First and foremost, it provides full cover. It conceals your chest, sides, back, bra straps, the whole she-bang. This is very important for the modest nursing mother. It can be worn as a poncho, over a tank top, or even belted. It could be a super cute maternity top. It can be used as a stroller or car seat cover. It can also double as a light weight blanket if needed.


  The Dria Cover is currently available on the website in the three fabrics shown below. For the purposes of this review I was sent the Newport Dria cover. When I received the cover I was pleasantly surprised by the jersey fabric. It is uber soft, stretchy, and lightweight at the same time, making it seem very lux. Think of your softest baby blanket yet with some elasticity. The company refers to the stretch as a 4 way stretch, basically meaning the cover will mold in any direction to fit your needs. Another huge plus to this cover is that it doesn't wrinkle. Its wonderful to be able to pull your nursing cover out of your bag and not feel like a disheveled wrinkled schlub.

 
       Since Weston has hit 9 months he has been quite the handful to breastfeed.  This is especially true when trying to be modest in public. I was thrilled when I experienced the extent of the coverage provided by the Dria cover. Definitely a cover that would withstand some crazy break-dancing baby moves. The lightweight fabric is breathable and not too heavy. The only con to this cover is that you need to hold out the neckline if you want to maintain eye contact with you baby. I feel that this is a small price to pay for all of the other functions of this great cover.

  

        This week I really gave the Dria cover a run for it's money.  I used it on an airplane. Let me tell you....this baby is the whole enchilada. I wore it, I nursed in it (for an HOUR on the plane), I used it as a blanket, even wore it as a smock on the way home when feeding the wild one some baby food.  I even received a compliment on my cute shirt! Loved it!!

        The Dria cover retails at $79.99. Yes, this is at the upper end of nursing cover pricing, however, the Dria Cover is such a multitasking baby item and I think that justifies the higher price.

  1. I really love the versatility of the cover and all the ways you can use it. However I think my favorite feature is that it doesn't look like a nursing cover. It looks like a piece of clothing and not a tent that I would be embarrassed to wear!

  5. When I nursed my son, I think his main goal was to expose me! Having a stylish cover that is enough to keep you modest is a huge plus for me! My favorite feature is how the DRIA cover is lightweight and breathable. I live in AZ and nursing was miserable in the summer. I wasn't ever comfortable nursing in public with my own nursing cover because my sides and back were always exposed and my son didn't make it any easier wiggling around probably trying to get some fresh air in there. I would feel comfortable knowing my baby would have more fresh air and also nursing in public would be much easier for me. I would love to own one for the baby we're expecting! :)
