How Nursing Queen's designs make breastfeeding easier with easy access openings

How do nursing clothes for breastfeeding work?
Nursing clothes allow you to nurse without exposing your stomach, back, sides and breasts. Basically, they have hidden openings near the breasts for easy access without having to lift up your entire shirt from the bottom. They come with several different openings but the majority either have lift-up flaps or hidden zippers. 

What are the different types of nursing clothes?
Most nursing clothes either have lift up flaps, pull-aside openings, or hidden zippers for easy access.

Lift up flaps:
Nursing clothes with lift up flaps are super easy - just pull up the cropped layer and pull aside the underlayer and your nursing bra or nursing tank. The top layer acts as a cover.

Hidden zipper openings:
At first you might think this would be too hard to do with a wiggly baby but it's totally possible to open one-handed. 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

Nursing Queen Size Chart

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.

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.
