How our tops work

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. 

Horizontal opening:
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!

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.
