My Top 5 Best Nursing Clothes

My Top 5 Best Nursing Clothes

ThirdLove 24/7™ Classic Nursing Bra
True story: I haven't worn normal clothes in three years and counting. I have either been breastfeeding and/or pregnant. I am looking forward to the day that I don't have to think, "will I be able to nurse in that?" or "will by belly fit in that?" But until then, I will be wearing and re-wearing my top five favorite nursing pieces. First up, my new favorite nursing bra. It's by ThirdLove. Have you guys tried their bras? I recently got a nursing bra and the push up bra. I always thought I needed a smaller band size, but I got measured one time at Victoria's Secret ... and they said no. So I kinda just thought I was nuts. But ThirdLove suggested I go down a band size after I filled out their questionnaire, and the bras are amazing! I have never had a bra not ride up in the back, and these don't (insert thank heavens emoji)! I like the nursing bra because it clasps in the front. And I love the straps. They are stretchy and pleated, so the strap adjusters don't slip. It's magic. They have a try before you buy program, which is pretty cool.

Rachel Pally Long-Sleeve Black Caftan Dress
Next up is this black dress by Rachel Pally. I don't see the same one on the site anyomre, but this Rachel Pally long-sleeve black caftan dress is VERY similar. The long sleeves make you feel very cozy and covered. And the neckline is great for easy access for nursing. The material is very stretchy, so nursing in it is a breeze.

ASOS Black and White Nursing Top
This ASOS black and white number is the best nursing top. I seriously wear it at least once a week. It's stylish looking, and you can rock it athleisure style, with jeans, or with black pants and heels.

Rachel Pally Long Cutout Dress
This is one of my favorite dresses of all time, maternity, not maternity, and for nursing. It's super stylish, not matronly, and really easy to nurse in. I wear it with this black DKNY Energy Seamless Bra I got at Costco, and you can't tell where the bra ends and the dress begins. When you aren't nursing you can also wear it with a stick on bra. Love, love, love this!

best nursing sleep bra

Medela® Small Nursing Sleep Bra in Black
I have tried several, and this is hands down the best nursing sleep bra. I have three. The material is so incredibly soft, and the wrap front provides super easy access for those middle of the night feedings. On occasion, I have forgotten to wear breast pads, and the material wicks away moisture like you wouldn't believe. You can't feel any wetness. I highly recommend this gem. You won't be disappointed.

There you have my top five best nursing clothes. If you are nursing, you most likely have no time to try piece after piece, so I hope this helps! Please ask away if you have any questions at all.
