  • If you’re nursing, you’ll find that not all your clothes can accommodate your need to breastfeed or pump on the go. And while there are a number of nursing-specific clothing lines in the market, you actually don’t need to spend on them. (Better invest in nursing bras, instead.) It’s possible to find chic "regular" outfits that are breastfeeding-friendly. After all, you want to buy clothes that you can still wear beyond your breastfeeding stage.

    Here are six stylish pieces you can wear even after you're done breastfeeding

    1. Zip it up.

    Jumpsuits are ultra-chic, but some think it’s impractical especially during bathroom breaks. Most need to be unzipped from the back or the side. This flattering number, however, has a zipper in front so it’s easy to open and fully remove. Genius!

    2. Opt for a button-down.

    Choose soft or flowy fabrics so you don’t feel stuffy. Denim or chambray is a classic, but there are also tanks and tees that come with buttons for more casual days. This vintage blouse from Re Clothing is made from sustainable materials so you’re not hurting the environment.

    3. Bare your shoulders.

    Choose one with an elastic neckline so it’s easy to pull down when your baby needs to latch and pull back up once she’s done. The athletic band on this dress is trendy and the bright, cheery shade looks great for summer!

    4. Wraps are no fail.

    This is the go-to nursing option for most moms because it provides the quickest and easiest breast access. Wrap dresses are truly versatile and flattering for all body types and also great for maternity and postpartum wear.

    5. Tie sides provide easy access.

    Another piece that’s easy to get out of is a top or dress with tie sides. Just untie one of the sides, and you can feed your little one with ease. Not to mention, it’s sexy and trendy!

    6. Loose and stretchy tops for every day.

    Any top that you can stretch and is loose can be a nursing piece — either pull it up or shrug the shoulders off. You can wear a cover over it or a camisole underneath (if you’re conscious about showing your tummy).
