Nursing Clothes For Breastfeeding

We know you're ready for spring weather! We are too but we still need hoodies on most days here in Alabama! So here is a mix of a few cold and warm weather designs that will take you into spring!

"Dressing room diary" blog posts are the BEST! They give you an even better idea of how the clothes will look and fit (without any professional cameras/ models)!

Our BESTSELLER for two years in a row is our camel sweetheart sweatshirt and it's so hard to keep in stock!  It also now comes in gray/black (below)! The nursing zippers are slanted and hidden along the colorblock lines.

Fit tip: true to size, wearing XS. Size up 1/2 size in loafers.

For more casual outings... our smocked maxi dress is a great option. It 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 berry!

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

Another great maxi for summer that also comes with a lift-up flap is 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.

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.
