Nursing Clothes And Maternity Clothes That Make You Look Good!

May 1, 2008
Many women find maternity clothes shopping challenging with an ever changing waistline and bust line in addition to facing the challenge of trying to look like their pre-baby selves again without looking, God forbid, fat. Those of us who have had babies know that maternity clothes shopping is just the beginning of the challenge. Once you have your baby, you will need to find clothing that not only fits you comfortably, without showing off your postpartum belly, but most of all does not make you look pregnant! For this reason, wearing your maternity clothes after the baby is not the best choice for avoiding that question you no longer want to hear "When are you due?"

If you plan to nurse your baby and actually plan on leaving the house with the possibility of nursing your baby on the go, a few basic, and yes, even stylish nursing tops will make your daily routine much easier. We all know that if you like how you look and if you like what you are wearing and how it fits, you are a much happier person which, in turn, gives the trickle down effect to rest of your family and baby. Even better, if you are wearing a nursing top that is actually made with easy nursing access and fits in a way that helps conceal a postpartum belly, you will be much happier. And, most important, happy mothers have happy babies (who have quicker access to their breakfast, lunch and dinner)!

So where do you start when looking for nursing clothes? Well if you don't have time to shop locally, online is wonderful place to shop anytime of the day - even midnight when you are nursing your baby. There are many good nursing lines on the market today. Depending if you are looking for sophisticated, dressy casual, trendy or comfortable nursing wear, there is a brand and a style to fit the need. Here are a few recommendations:

Japanese Weekend makes a wide assortment of urban chic nursing tops that are sophisticated enough to wear to the office without anybody knowing it's a nursing top. Many of these tops do double as a maternity tops, but are not made to make you look pregnant when you are not. Many of their styles are empire waist designs of all sorts of fun patterns as well as solids, such as their Obi Style and Kimono Style maternity and nursing tops, that will easily disguise a postpartum belly. A few of Japanese Weekend's nursing tops are made with a faux cami design, such as the Lace Tipped Maternity and Nursing top, which allows you to nurse without displaying your cleavage to the rest of the world. Japanese Weekend also has a bestselling Cross Over Maternity and Nursing top that allows discreet nursing access and looks nice too. There are definitely styles for all seasons with Japanese Weekend including tops that come in full sleeve length, sleeves, short sleeves and some sleeveless varieties.

If trendy is more your game, take a look at 1 in the Oven, a relatively new Beverly Hills brand on the market today, which has already been discovered by celebrities and fashionistas alike. 1 in the Oven's nursing tops are very soft and stretchy, easy to wear styles that fit many body types and always go well with a good pair of jeans. They also have their own version of a Cross Over Maternity and Nursing top with very discreet nursing access and an extra long length. Their shirred Maternity and Nursing Tube Top (which is actually fits like a tank) has a fun side tie sash and is super cute on. If you are a Henley style girl, they have both a sleeve and short sleeve nursing Henley in about every color under the rainbow. These top are 100% waffle weave cotton that stretches where you need it and are great for layering as well.

If loungewear is more your style for nursing clothes, you can't go wrong with the Majamas Brand which basically invented the nursing top. Their Reverse Cami with Sleeves comes in black and charcoal color varieties and is perfect anytime of the year with sleeves. There is also the Softest Top in Black which, as the name implies, is super soft and comfortable with nursing access. The Sleepy Dress and Cozy Dress are great tank style nursing and maternity dresses for spring or summer. Many women wear these styles year-round and layer with sweaters and leggings in colder weather. Majamas does have some new snazy short sleeve nursing top styles out there such as the Lexie Top, a super hip contrast black and white pattern, and the Khuli Top, a stylish top with adorable ruching detail which comes in a cool latte or black. Finally if you just need a pair of excellent nursing pajamas, you can't go wrong with the MJs or the Pajananaman which come in pewter, raspberry and black solids and a few patterns.

So whatever your style game, there are fashionable nursing clothes for you to choose from that will infuse a new ease and spirit into your new baby world. Once you are armed with fun and functional nursing clothes, it is much easier to face your day with a smile and a baby who will return the favor!
