Styling Your Nursing Clothes For Spring 2022

We know you are dreaming of warmer weather and spring break with the family! We are too! We still need our hoodies here in Alabama but we are already packing our bags for vacay next month!

So here is a little mix of cold weather and warm weather styles that will take you into spring and summer! Side note: We don't get any commissions for the links.

First up: We have a new dress to show you! We have made seven different samples of this nursing dress (trying to get it perfect). We've been tweaking the fit and we finally found the perfect fabric and color combo! Simple and classy. It would be great for church, work or even a wedding and it has stretch!

Fit tip: Nursing dress fits true to size (wearing XS- size 2). Shoes fit TTS, wearing 7.5.

Another newer style that has become one of our best sellers is our fuzzy nursing sweater. It also has a hidden nursing zipper for easy access. We made it loose, V-neck, and longer length to wear with leggings. It a light sweater material and would transition well into spring!

Next up is our #1 BEST-SELLER - it was even voted the #1 nursing sweatshirt by What To Expect.

The colorblock nursing pullover with a hidden zipper comes in 9 color combos! MOMS LOVE the quality cotton fabric (that washes great), the loose fit, and the trendy design with thumbholes! The light gray color combo has over 100 *5 star* reviews on our site! Check out the photo reviews!

It also comes in patterns like our floral/teal combo.

Moving on to spring and summer! We have several maxis that are perfect for vacation!

Our smocked maxi dress doesn't cling (no underwear lines here)! Lift up the smocked flap to reveal a criss-cross design to easily pull aside to breastfeed. It comes in regular and petite lengths! It's also available in purple!

Fit tip: The dress fits TTS. I'm 5'1 and wearing XSP (size 2).

Another great maxi for summer is another lift up flap - our purple tie dye dress. It's 95% cotton and high quality. The nursing flap is held down by a small band of elastic so it doesn't look like a nursing dress! It also comes in regular and petite lengths and is also available in blue!

Fit tip: The dress fits TTS. I'm 5'1 and wearing XS (size 2) with heels. I would need the XSP with flats.

Another nursing maxi dress that is a fan favorite is our Print Nursing Maxi. This one has zippers disguised as bust darts to make breastfeeding or pumping super easy. It's also available in petite and regular lengths.

If you're looking for a great dress for church, bridal shower or baby shower, we have several great options. Our eyelet dress in navy is one of my favorite “go to” colors. It’s classic and hides dirt! Also, check out the embroidery on this fabric! So pretty! The dresses is fully lined and 100% cotton.

Fit tip: The dress fits TTS with a roomy fit (wearing XS- size 2). Wedges fit TTS (wearing 5.5).

Switching to nursing tops... our Cotton Ruffle Tee. The fabric 100% cotton, medium-weight and washes great! It has an over-sized fit, so size down if you're between sizes. The nursing zipper is hidden along the ruffle line and is super cute with jeans and wedges!

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). 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). We realize this isn't a "one-size fits all" solution. If you aren't sure, measure your bust, waist, hips and follow the chart. If you get 3 measurements, pick the middle size. 

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.
