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- Fit Quiz!

NQ size chart

All of our designs fit true-to-size with a relaxed fit (which compensate for extra weight and a larger chest). Most of them also have an A-line fit, which means they fit across the chest/shoulders but flow away from the body so your waist and hip measurements don't matter.

Our sizes are similar to maternity-wear: order your pre-baby size. If you're between sizes, size down. Typically, the best way to determine your size is to follow your pre-baby size in numbers on the chart (4/6, 8/10, etc). 

Plus Sizes: We follow a standard U.S. plus chart. Our plus sizes range from 1X-3X. NOTE: An XXL (in misses) is a size 1X in plus sizing.
