Nursing tanks and bras are a must as they'll just make your life that much easier,” says Jillian Harris, a lifestyle & family blogger. “However, before going out and buying a whole new wardrobe … pull out items that have zippers or button/snap fronts as these will be the easiest items to get you breastfeeding in no time! Items that are functional, comfortable, and stylish are key!”

Ariana Goldman, the founder of maternity clothing brand Hatch, also recommends tops that be easily untied or with buttons. “The best tops for nursing are those which are chic and integral to your wardrobe, but that you’d never know are functional, too. A woman doesn’t have to forgo style during nursing.” she says.
