"Dressing room diary" blog posts are the BEST! They give you an even better idea of how the clothes will look and fit, which is super helpful when you're a busy mama! So, we thought it would be fun to style our Nursing Queen nursing clothes with different leggings, jeans and shoes!
Here's our version (not in a dressing room because we shopped online and ya know, kids, lol)! Side note: we don't get any commissions for the links.
First up: our best selling nursing colorblock sweatshirt with hidden zippers, which comes in several colors. We love the blue/gray combo with the accent gray drawstring. It's casual and cute and just screams spring baseball! It looks great with a pair of light jeans, dark jeans, or black leggings. For shoes, we're digging these blue NB, black/white NB, and black Nike.
Fit tip: Nursing sweatshirt fits true to size (wearing XS). Jeans run a little small (sized up to a 4).
Our nursing sweatshirt in gray/black is a fan favorite. It goes with just about anything. By the way, have you tried the faux leather Spanx yet? Black on black is sooo good! But if you want to spice it up with some color, this is the one for you! We tried on tons of colorful leggings and these two were our favorites.
Fit tip: Nursing sweatshirt fits true to size (wearing XS). Leggings fit TTS (wearing smalls). Nike shoes fit TTS.
Stay tuned for more dressing room diary posts!!
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.
