How nursing tops for breastfeeding actually work

Nursing Queen focuses on nursing clothes with the easiest access for breastfeeding: lift up flaps and hidden zipper openings.

Lift up flap:
I've tried many different nursing openings, and this is by far the easiest (for me). It's especially easy if you breastfeed while your baby is in a carrier.  Pull up the top layer and pull aside the layer underneath.  Check out our striped nursing hoodie with up 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 out the first sample. Life changing! You can do this one-handed and the zipper is totally hidden. We now have nursing clothes with the horizontal openings and vertical zipper openings.

This was the coolest thing I learned after I took the breastfeeding class at the hospital (while I was still pregnant). Weigh them before and after you feed them!

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.
