With cooler weather just around the corner, I have been on the hunt for some nursing friendly styles that I can wear on repeat for the next few months and beyond. I have never been much of a fan of traditional nursing tops, but rather shirts that make breastfeeding easy but still blend well into my everyday wardrobe. Here are my six style essentials for the nursing mom:
Linen Henley // Nursing Hoodie // Grey Drape Front Cardigan
1. A classic chambray shirt. Can be worn a plethora of different ways & I am not opposed to throwing it on with a pair of skinny grey sweatpants. I also love this chambray with white dots
which is a little more casual & also super affordable.
2. Nothing says Fall like black & white gingham. I bought this shirt a while back (shown above, now on sale!) & love how low the buttons go. It is long enough to wear over leggings but fitted enough to not look frumpy.
3. A scoop neck (front and back!) top is perfect to just slide off the shoulder to make nursing a breeze. I love these because the sleeves are still very fitted & they come in tons of gorgeous colors!
4. I love a good linen shirt for Fall, this is super slouchy & comfortable. I especially love it in the grey & mustard colors.
5. Boob Design nursing shirts are genius, and everybody needs a good hoodie. Bonus points for pairing it with a puffy vest or cargo jacket.
6. Drape front cardigans are so comfy & versatile. With a nursing tank underneath, it doesn’t get much easier than that! My current favorite is this chunky knit sweater, I love it as a layered piece.
As for nursing tanks, I love the boob design tanks that I had from after Eloise was born. They are very fitted & they have held up so well after being washed over and over.
I also LOVE these modal fabric pullover bras from the Gap, they aren’t nursing bras but I live in them. They’re super stretchy & soft, and I find them equally convenient for nursing! Granted, I don’t need much support (if you get my drift) so these may not work so well if you are blessed with bigger boobs! 😉
And there you have it! I hope you find this helpful & I would love to hear about any of your favorite styles/brands! Also, I wanted to say thank you for your feedback the other day about Claire not taking a bottle. We will keep trying and see what happens, and in the mean time, I do imagine myself attempting to lean over her car seat to feed her while we are on our upcoming road trip! 😉 Thank goodness for tinted windows.
