1: The Button-Down
This one is truly an asset to the nursing mother. And the best thing? They never go out of style. Whether it's a shirt or a shirt dress, you can easily feed your baby whenever you have to while never looking bulky or underdressed. They do a great job of hiding your postpartum bump, and you can dress them up or down to suit any occasion. So, if you have to rush from the office to a friend's party, this would be your best option.
You can easily carry on the button-down shirt or dress from maternity to your nursing days. Suppose you're only beginning on your maternity journey. In that case, we encourage you to read more on how best to buy well-fitted maternity clothes.
2: Hidden Zippers
Dresses or tops of this type have a hidden zipper situated at the front to provide you with easy breastfeeding access. This one is kind of like a button-down but with a seamless finish at the show, which can be helpful for more heavy breasted women. The zipper is a no-fuss solution that keeps everything hidden and in place. Before buying, do check how far the zipper goes to ascertain it suits you perfectly.
3: The Layered Wrap
This top features a double crossover panel at the front that you can adjust quickly to breastfeed even when you are on the go. This top or dress should be a go-to option for working moms. Because it allows you to cradle the baby's head inside the layer and keeps your hands free so you can work simultaneously.
4: The Tie-Up
The V-neck tie-up is a versatile piece of clothing that is perfect for every nursing mom. It comes in various styles - the full wrap tie-up, front tie-up, tie-waist, and the likes. This one checks all the right boxes, and it's great for breastfeeding without stretching out the top of your dress while the v-neck gives a summer feminine appeal to your look.
5: The Lift-Up Panel
This top features a discreet lift-up panel that falls horizontally over the bust, making breastfeeding a breezy affair. The double-stitched layer takes care of any spillages you may have. These tops are usually relaxed and don't put an unnecessary focus on your recovering postpartum body.
See? Dressing sharp as a mom isn't a fairytale anymore. With our recommended list of nursing must-haves, we promise both you and your baby would be turning heads wherever you go.
All in all, whatever you do, do not buy clothes for a body you want to become in the future. We have all done that, and it doesn't help. Ever. Your body looks just the way it should after harboring a kid inside for nine months. Don't judge yourself. Instead, be proud because you, madam, have achieved a feat.
There is only one rule of thumb for postpartum shopping - always buy things that flow and are comfortable. That's it. Everything else can wait a little longer.
