Sizing

All of our designs fit true-to-size with an over-sized/relaxed fit (which compensates for extra weight and a larger chest). So, don't size up. If you're between sizes, size down. If your bust is one size, waist is another, and hips are another, then choose the middle size.  

We know you might be thinking, "In this other nursing brand, I'm a bigger size." Or, "This is a sweatshirt and I would rather have it bigger." Trust us, don't size up. We have sold more than a thousand tops and very few have exchanged because it's too small.

99% of the time, if you stick to your pre-pregnancy size, you should be good.  Usually your dress/pant size (4/6, 8/10, etc) is the best measurement to follow.

Tanks: Our clip-down tanks are form fitting but not skin tight. If you are a size DD or smaller, order your regular size (S, M, L, etc). If you're larger than a DD, then you would wear our "full bust" size. Consider both your band size and your current size top. If you have a bra band of 40 (which is a size large), but you typically wear a size XL, size down to a large. We give extra room in the bust for the "full bust" sizes. 

Plus Sizes: We follow a standard U.S. plus chart. Our plus sizes range from 1X-3X. NOTE: Someone who considers themselves an XXL (in misses) is not a 2X (in plus). An XXL in misses is a size 1X in plus sizing. The best way for you to determine your size is to measure your band size (right under your chest), the smallest part of your waist, hips, and follow the chart.

The model below is a true XS (size 2 and 32C). Notice how much room she has in the hips. You can also see the difference between the two sizes. The small is much baggier.
