When I stumbled upon the dandelion shirt, I thought it was too good to be true. Finally, a patterned shirt (yay!) that looked appropriate for the office and appeared to have convenient access for pumping. But… it was sold out. So I scoured the internet...
Where do the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Sofia and Princess Victoria get their maternity and nursing fashions? Seraphine of course. A leading European retailer, Seraphine provides maternity and nursing fashions so stylish that you’ll want to wear them forever. Celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson rock their styles in addition to royalty. I love every single item I’ve purchased from Seraphine. Honestly, it’s been a challenge trying to determine which of their items to share first.
If there’s one thing I don’t understand about nursingwear, it’s this: 95% of the styles appear to be solids or stripes. Solids show every dribble, and stripes often make you look wider. Neither is ideal for a new mom. The Blaire Stripe MOM Dress sold by ROOLEE is an exception. While it is striped, the pattern alternates directions for a flattering look.
Shopping and consigning maternity and nursing-wear can be tricky. Use these tips when buying and selling clothing for pregnancy, breastfeeding, and baby.
It’s extremely rare to find a top that works well for pregnancy to nursing postpartum. Maia Moda’s Maia top is flawless for this transition.
I’m a big fan of day-to-night, work-to-weekend clothing. The heathered peasant nursing top by Milk is just that, which is why I’m highlighting it as the second item in my Working Mom’s Wardrobe series. You can wear this top with a pair of jeans or style it with a blazer or cardigan for the office. And it’s so comfy you’ll find yourself wearing it to bed!
Arianna Huffington suggests that men have an advantage in the workforce because they don’t generally exert as much time and effort (and possibly money!) into their wardrobes. I give you this background because what you’ll find here isn’t your traditional fashion blog. Here, you won’t find an unending stream of styles. Instead, I’m going to focus on the best nursing-friendly fashions for corporate environments.
