In the picture above, I am pushing out the nursing cover with my free hand so that I can see inside. Otherwise, it lays right against my neck with no visibility. The first nursing cover I showed above blows around in the wind and exposes everything, but this one stays on me in the windiest circumstances. I own two types of nursing bras 1 a regular one for daytime, and 2 a soft one for nighttime that allows me to also pump handsfree.
But I just made do with the mindset that the time would be temporary. This time around I let myself splurge on nice nursing bras because nursing a baby several times a day for a long period of time deserves some splurging! Actually, they cost about the same as my normal bras and are from the same brand, Natori.
It feels so comfortable, feels just like a regular bra, and does NOT feel like a sports bra like many nursing bras do. I got it in my regular size in both nude and black.
You can find them HERE. I also want to try ThirdLove nursing bras as they are often compared to Natori bras but with some discounts can be found a bit cheaper. The Natori nursing bras are WAY softer and more comfortable. If you will not be pumping, you can get sleeping bras like THESE which are really soft and comfortable.
I wear these in M. However, I planned to be pumping this time around, so I looked for one that I could nurse in easily at night as well as pump in handsfree. I wear this in size M. First of all, nursing camis are a MUST for me because they allow me to nurse comfortably in most of my regular tops , as long as the tops are loose enough to pull up.
A camisole keeps my stomach covered when I pull tops up to nurse. Other nursing camis have their own straps and often their own built in bra. You can find them HERE in tan, black, and grey. I wear size S in the version from a few years ago, but I tried the current version and it feels a bit snug on me. There are tons of button up tops and dresses out there that make nursing accessible!
There are a few other types of tops in different styles and for different seasons that have buttons as well! For spring and summer, you can find button up shirts that have short sleeves.
Both dresses above are amazing for nursing, and postpartum, and maternity wear. The dress on the right is available HERE. I was pregnant and I think in the 3rd trimester when we took that pic! I also wore it postpartum to dinner and church shortly after giving birth. So soft and stretchy! I wear size M. Edited when Ella was 4 months old. I was never able to nurse in v-neck anything, and they always needed to be button ups, cross-fronts, or pulled up completely.
Tucked into a skirt, this was my summer uniform when it was super hot, when I wanted to be dressy casual at church or out with friends, and when I wanted nursing to be really, really, really easy. They come in 8 colors HERE. A similar t-shirt that is also ridiculously stretchy is HERE and comes in several prints. I wear these in size M. Both the tank and tees are fitted at the bust, making them flattering when tucked into a skirt, but are loose at the waist which makes them drape well with a front tuck into shorts and jeans.
But, if you can figure out the bra situation, a strapless dress would be super easy to nurse in. There are tons of strapless dresses! Edit—Ella is now 4 months old. Lastly, like I said earlier, I wear any of my regular tops that I can pull up easily and wear Undercover Mama camis underneath.
It also includes my Lush tunics or the softer and shorter similar Henley version , among other flowy tops I own. Between all these options I scarcely ever feel the need to buy nursing-specific clothing apart from undergarments. I can more or less wear my regular clothes thanks to Undercover Mama camis, and there is a lot of variety between the different types of button-ups and cross-front clothing.
You can view my past nursing-friendly outfits HERE , though that only shows my button up and cross-front outfits.

Yes to all of the above, especially the henleys and buttoned shirts — I basically lived in 4 Old Navy flannel shirts while nursing my second through a Quebec winter.
I may have to check into the camis! I had a nursing cover like your first one but been having issues with my 6 month old pulling it so I bought the second one. We will be traveling this summer and I wanted more coverage. I ended up using Wal-Mart nursing sports bra this time e around because they seem to be the only ones to keep it all in and not look like I have a third boob, lol! I just wear regular tops. Haha a third boob! Most of the nursing bras I tried make me look like I have a uniboob.
Getting nicer nursing bras this time was totally worth it! You read my mind! This is baby 3 for me and I agree with you that breastfeeding clothes are unnecessary. I do wear strapless dresses a lot in the summer when nursing. When I do, I just go without a bra entirely and just stick my breast pads directly into the dress itself to contain any leaks.
Then I just pull down one side at a time to nurse. Maybe when the weather warms up or when a fancy event rolls around! Figuring out clothes was the hard part for me. I just recently went back to my usual shirts and started hiking them up. I love the idea of the camisole for a little more modesty. When I was nursing my son, he hated the nursing cover. I improvised by still wearing it but not covering his face with it until he was a little older.
Basically, it covered the top and middle of my chest and any part of my stomach that was exposed. I also always had a receiving blanket on the baby and used that to cover my stomach too. The extra-high waist band serves double duty, providing support for your postpartum tummy and giving you full coverage during nursing. New moms and veteran moms alike can pair these leggings with a t-shirt for lounging around the house or a sweater or button-down for an outfit that looks chic and put together.
The button-down design allows breastfeeding moms to rock this classic look too. This dress looks great at work paired with heels or for running errands when you pair it with trainers. Now nursing moms can enjoy a good bra from ThirdLove! The lightweight shirt is easy to pair with leggings, sandals, and a jean jacket for an effortless outfit.
Wear it as a scarf that can dress up a t-shirt or add some color to any outfit. The Amelia Jumpsuit is comfy and chic without losing the functionality of a nursing tank. The faux wrap feature accentuates your waist while also hiding the nursing access slip.
