Finding maternity clothes that are cute and flattering can be annoying, but it’s do-able.
Most stores have a maternity section, and there are plenty of websites dedicated to maternity wear.
But what about clothes that make breastfeeding easier?
That has been my issue – specifically when it comes to dresses. I don’t have as much issue with shirts as I do with dresses.
So I thought as my first post for breastfeeding awareness month, I’d share a few tips for finding breastfeeding clothing, as well as adapting your current clothing. Many of these options are companies that are totally dedicated to making breastfeeding friendly apparel. However, I’ve also listed some stores and websites that also cater to this demographic.
1) Latched Mama
I saw this website when I was pregnant, and I loved all the options. I found that the products were affordable as far as nursing clothing goes, and you can get dresses, shirts, hoodies, etc. They have a wide selection of their clothing available on Amazon or you can buy directly from their website. I’m dying to get this cute wrap dress!
I was recently introduced to this line, and I love it. The outfits are stylish, affordable, and very comfortable. I was sent the Chic Cowl Nursing Dress in black lace, which I really loved. I paired it with a pair of colored tights, and it was very easy to discretely nurse in! I really liked how it was flattering everywhere.
I love all the other items as well. They have everything from shirts, to dresses, to pumping shirts. There’s really something for everyone. I’m dying to buy some more things. You can buy on their website, online at Nordstrom, or on Amazon!
3) Pink Blush Maternity
They mainly have pregnancy clothes, but they have a nursing section with clothes that are compatible with breastfeeding. The models in this section are pregnant, but I can see how they could easily still be worn post-pregnancy for nursing.
4) Stitch Fix
I love Stitch Fix! It is a clothing subscription service. You fill out a profile, and the company will send you a box full of clothing specifically chosen and styled for you. You pay a $20 styling fee which can be applied toward any clothing you decide to keep in the box. They have a maternity option, but if you specify in your instructions that you are breastfeeding, your stylist will accommodate that. I did this recently, and I got two of the cutest tops ever! Sign up for your first Fix here!
I saw this company on Facebook the other day, and I loved the cute options! For this week (until August 7th) they are even offering 30% off. Everything looks so soft and fashionable. There are just a few different options, but they are very versatile and you can wear them in so many different ways!
Have you heard of LuLaRoe yet? It’s totally sweeping the nation – and for good reason. Not only are the clothes comfortable and stylish, but they are wonderful for postpartum moms. They come in every size and are flattering on all body types.
Not all of the clothes are breastfeeding friendly, but many of them are. I love the Nicole Dress and the classic t for these purposes. I highly recommend joining my friend, Marianne’s, facebook group. She regularly posts new inventory, and she is so knowledgeable. She will let you know if something is breastfeeding friendly. If you buy anything, let her know I sent you! You can only buy LuLaRoe from a consultant (or eBay…but that can get sketchy).
Etsy is a great place to find handmade or upcycled nursing clothes. One shop that I really like is Sarah’s Style. I connected with her in a local breastfeeding group, and I love how much care and thought she puts into her items. They are quite affordable, too! She also makes babywearing hoodies, which I think are awesome.
I love this site! They have everything you could possibly need when it comes to nursing clothing. Dresses, shirts, nursing bras, sleepwear…they have it all! Everything looks very high quality as well. You can buy on their website or on Amazon!
Zulilly occasionally has some great sales on breastfeeding clothes (along with maternity clothes and other breastfeeding products.) Sign up so you can find out when they do!
11) Le Leche Libre
They only have a few items, and they are kind of expensive. They aren’t really my style, but I can see why people would like them!
I always like clothes from Motherhood Maternity. They often have sales, and the clothes are pretty comfortable. While most of the things they offer are for pregnancy, they do have a nice selection of nursing clothing available. Destination Maternity is another great one – as of the time of this post, they were having a sale – buy three nursing tops, get one free. Not sure how long that goes on for, but they seem to always have sales.
They don’t have a huge selection, but they do have very affordable and inexpensive nursing tees.
15) A Pea in a Pod
16) Old Navy
I think Old Navy is a great place to find very inexpensive outfits, including ones for breastfeeding.
Just a quick search on Amazon will bring up very affordable and cute nursing clothes!
I have seen the Nurslet on Instagram, and I think it’s such a neat, simple product. It’s something that makes shirts more breastfeeding friendly. I keep meaning to order one!
In addition, I think Maxi dresses are AMAZING for breastfeeding. I’ve gotten a few at Target, and they work really well.
Also, having a properly fitting nursing bra is important for any breastfeeding woman’s
And I know that this isn’t exactly nursing apparel, but if you are like me and not quite comfortable with nursing without a cover, you have to check out Covered Goods. You can use it as a nursing cover, car seat cover, and as a cute scarf! I frequently see sales for them online, so keep your eyes opened!
