How do nursing clothes for breastfeeding work?

For many moms, nursing clothes help make breastfeeding easier and help make them feel more confident to nurse anywhere!

You don't NEED to wear nursing clothes to breastfeed but there are benefits. Click, here, to read that post.

Nursing clothes come with several different openings. The majority either have lift-up flaps or hidden zippers. 

Lift up flap:
This is the easiest - just pull up the top layer and pull down your nursing bra or nursing tank. Check out our nursing sweater with a lift-up flap, here.  

Hidden zipper openings:
At first you might think this would be too hard to do with a wiggly baby. I wasn't sold until I tried it out.You can do this one-handed too!  Life changing! Plus the hidden zippers are so hidden! You would never know the top or dress was designed for nursing, meaning you could wear it long after your nursing days. Check out our nursing clothes with horizontal zippers and vertical zipper openings.

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.  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.
