Nursing tops make feeding time quick and easy for you and baby. When selecting a nursing top, finding the right size is the key. A shirt that’s too tight will make nursing more of a hassle than it should be. Also, you may have to stretch a tight shirt in order to nurse properly, which means the shirt will lose it’s shape in certain places. Going too big leads to a shapeless unflattering look. Try going up one size to accommodate your desire to look good and your ability to nurse easily.
What types of nursing tops are best for nursing? You have a plethora of them that are excellent for nursing mothers. There are some specialty tops made specifically with nursing in mind, such as unbutton and pull aside tops. These tops have button down necks that pull across the side of the breast. Some come with an under layer that exposes only the area required for nursing. Then there are shirts that weren’t made with nursing mothers in mind, but their design makes them nursing-friendly, such as cross front, knot front, and v-neck tops. These are all great tops to have in your closet while nursing. The thing all three of these shirt types have in common are their lower neck line, make nursing time a simple affair with minimal fuss.
