Mothers are all over the board about what they like to wear while pumping and nursing, but many readers have noted their love of wrap dresses — and Ann Taylor has a ton of cute ones right now. This navy wrap dress with diagonal stripes from Ann Taylor would also be great for hiding stains. On sale now for $84.99, and available in sizes 00 through 14 (regular and petite). Diagonal Stripe Wrap Dress
I may be the only person on the planet who considers simple t-shirts the perfect pumping/nursing attire, but — especially when paired with a nursing camisole to cover your belly — an easy care, affordable, polished tee is exactly what you need. A friend was just singing the praises of this shirt as being the perfect “nice” t-shirt you can layer beneath suits, and I like that it’s down to only $25. It’s available in several different colors over at White House | Black Market. WHBM Soft Touch Scoop Neck Tee
Here’s a cotton/modal plus-size option.
Hooray, it’s nice to see everyone’s favorite nursing/pumping/general-blouse-love shirt back in stock, and in a ton of new prints and colors. I like this black-and-white scattered dot pattern (all the better for hiding random kid-related stains), and the price: it’s $58, available in sizes XS-XL. Pleione Sleeveless Faux Wrap Blouse
Here’s a plus-size option.
When I was nursing, it seemed like a never ending search to find cardigans that were soft, machine washable, didn’t have zippers (I didn’t want them rubbing against the baby’s face), but were also functional and warm and brought a wee bit of color and style to my life. Some women swear by this cardigan (try this link to see all the colors it comes in right now and the many many positive reviews), but it felt a bit too close to the cardigan equivalent of sweatpants to me, so I gravitated more towards waterfall cardigans like the one pictured here. Bonus: this particular cardigan even has pockets and is on sale. Of course I like the navy or the red, but it’s also available in black, white, or gray. It’s $39.90, but was originally $58. Bobeau Two-Pocket Drape Front Cardigan (Regular & Petite)
Oooh: I always love a good print (and, let’s face it, a nice blue dress), and this very functional nursing dress looks amazing. I love the high neckline (wrap-style nursing dresses were always a bit obscene on me without a camisole), and the price is great: it’s $38 (was $49), with sizes XS-XL still left. Milk Nursingwear Printed Nursing Dress with Tie
I was a bit worried — the blouse that everyone loves for pumping, nursing, and general, you know, fashion, was out of stock for a while there. Happily, it’s back now, and already on sale in six colors (mostly prints but also basic black) — it’s $68 new, but at 25% off it’s down to $49.90. Pleione Faux Wrap Blouse
