With Breastfeeding Awareness Month well under way, we have written about essentials items a breastfeeding mama might need and heard from founder of Pumping Essentials, Joy Kosack. Clothing that a breastfeeding mama wears can make all the difference in her success, level of comfort and ease of adapting to no fuss nursing.
Here are a few brands I have tried, trust and love! I had tried other brands when I was nursing my other two children, and I can say that my plan to commit to extended BF will be much easier knowing I have functional, fashionable lingerie and tops that will aid in discreet and stress-free nursing.
Belabumbum: For ease of nursing, we love Belabumbum lounge wear and pajamas. For luxe style and romantic designs, you'll feel beautiful and comfortable while easily and discreetly nursing your babe. Each piece has special details and nothing feels like it was made for nursing, perfect now as maternity wear, perfect later as your is body transforming and you're breastfeeding baby. You have to check out their new Queen Bee collection perfect for making any mama feel like a princess.
Bella Materna: When it comes to sexy nursing lingerie, Bella Materna has a beautiful line of both wire and wire free bras. I had a variety of nursing bras in the past, and needed them for well over a year, and each and every time I dreaded putting on the ugly, style-less and not altogether comfortable nursing bras I had. Thanks to Bella Materna, I'm ditching the dinge and now have the most beautiful nursing and maternity bras a mama could want. I was shocked at the support, comfort and overall look of the wire-free nursing bras-they are so lux, and pretty as well as do quite a job to keep your growing mamahood in place. I can wear the Bella Materna bras all day, feeling comfortable and confident. I love the little details, each Bella Materna bra celebrates mamahood without compromising an ounce on sexy. Find Bella Materna on facebook or pinterest or twitter.
Bravado Designs: For all day comfort, great quality and an affordable pricepoint, look no further than Bravado designs nursing tanks and bras. I currently wear the tanks as for extra support while sleeping and find they offer super soft comfort while having just the right amount of stretch and fabric mobility. I know they'll make nursing a cinch with they easy-open yet blending hooks. Not all tanks are created equally, and the Bravado Designs tanks are available in a variety of colors, as well as sizes (appropriate for larger busts!). They also have a full line of daily wear, comfy, bras in fun colors that offer good coverage, lift and support. The strap placement is perfect and the removable pads are great to adjust the bra as needed.
Glamourmom Nursing Tanks: For longer length, comfort and slim fit, Glamourmom tanks are essential to a BF moms' arsenal. The best feature is the easily adjustable chest band, great for all stages of pregnancy and well beyond. This Glamourmom tank is so versatile and is the perfect tank for layering.

Louis Valcourt: For edgy and modern nursing wear made easy, check out Louis Valcourt. I love how all I need to do is unzipper this top to feed baby discreetly, all while keeping my midsection covered and without having to wear what looks like a nursing top. High quality material means this top will stand up to multiple washings without losing its shape. I wear it now with leggings for a chic, sophisticated and easy maternity style.
Thyme Maternity: For a full line of affordable and stylish clothes that make nursing a cinch, Thyme Maternity has been a go-to brand throughout this pregnancy. I love their basics, and their on trend tops. I can mix and match the versatile pieces and can wear them during my pregnancy and beyond.
Undercover Mama: Undercover mama tanks are strapless camisoles that attach to any nursing bra. Great for layering under any shirt and keeping your style without investing in a new wardrobe, the Undercover Mama transforms any shirt into a nursing shirt.
