Nursing Queen focuses on tops with the easiest access: clip down and horizontal openings.
Clip down opening:
For me, I think "clip down" is the best at night. I could nurse in the pitch dark and figure out what I'm doing. I don't have to pull up/aside any fabric. It's just clip-down and BAM!
Clip-down tanks are great when you want to wear them under regular clothes (like cardigans), or alone just like a standard tank top.
I've tried many different nursing openings, and this is by far the easiest in public (for me). It's especially easy if you breastfeed while your baby is in a carrier. Pull up the crop-top layer and underneath is either a crisscross neckline or a slit opening.
Oh, and did you know the crop-top look is in style anyway?! Bonus!
Many of us will be traveling for the holidays, which reminds me how easy it used to be when my son was a baby and I was breastfeeding.
All of our designs are meant to be roomy in the right areas. Not baggy and not tight. Don't size up! If you're between sizes, size down.
Hoodies: The hoodie designs fit true to size with a roomy fit (see photos below). Usually the dress size (4/6, 8/10 etc.) is the best measurement to follow. If you order your pre-pregnancy size, the hoodies should fit great!
Tanks: Our clip-down tanks are form fitting but not skin tight. If you are a size DD or smaller, order your regular size. If you're larger than a DD, 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 larger chests.
For plus sizes, we follow a standard U.S. plus chart as well. We have learned that someone who considers themselves a XXL (in misses) is not a 2X (plus). 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, and your 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.
