There are many fabulous nursing tops out there. How do you decide which ones are right for you? Here are a few pointers to help you pick the right nursing top for you.
Answering the following four questions and understanding which styles compliment your answers will prepare you for your shopping adventure:
- Do you want to show some clevage or wear a more modest top?
- Do you plan to wear the nursing top at home or out with friends?
- Do you want need super quick and easy access (like when your half asleep at night), or do you have time to prepare before feeding?
- Do you want maximum discresion or can you show a little boob?
Sexiness vs Modesty
Casual or Fashion
If you want your nursing tops to be used for a casual night at home then pick something that is comfortable and can be easily washed and dried. My choice would be one of our Nursing Henley‘s such as the Stripe Double Layer Nursing Henley or maybe even some Majamas Nursing Pajamas . Both of these styles can be washed easily and dried in the dryer.
If you want a Nursing Top to go out with your friends check out our Fashion Tops section for tops that are more fashionable. Keep in mind that many of these tops should lie flat to dry and not be put in the dryer.
Quick and Easy Access
If you are buying PJs that will be used during the night you should choose something that has the easiest breast access possible since you don’t want to have to fiddle with your top at night. My suggestion would be any top that has an opening type of Pull-Aside or Pull-Under. The Pull-Aside is a top where the v-neck pull to the side of the breast. The Pull-Under top is one where the neck stretches to be pulled underneath the breast. Check out The Pajanaman for an example of a PJ with pull-aside access.
Do you want maximum discresion while your feeding, or are you able to show a little boob? If you want maximum discresion be sure to choose a top that has the opening style of Pull-Up or Pull-Aside with Underlayer. The Pull-Up tops lifts from he bust line over the breast. This type of opening allows the top of the breast to remain covered for maximum discresion. The Pull-Aside with Underlayer is a top where the Neck pulls to the side of the breast, but there is a second layer underneath the pull-aside to keep the top and side of the breast covered. Consider these tops for maximum discresion: The Tipped Bodice Top or the Double Layer Henley.
