Q. I had a baby last winter (he’s so darn cute!), and he’s breastfeeding, which has been great for losing the baby weight and getting my figure back, but tricky in the fashion department. I purchased several nursing tops from Old Navy during the winter when I needed more layers, but now that it’s nearly summer I want to wear tank tops and little dresses. But it’s hard to find dresses and tops with easy access and stretchy fabric! My figure is getting back to normal and I’m so over shopping in the maternity section, plus the selection of nursing tops can be pretty pathetic. Do you have any suggestions for stylish nursing moms?
A. Congrats to you on getting your figure back so quickly! It is certainly easier to find dresses and tops that accommodate nursing mothers in the warmer months, so you’re in luck. V-necks, thin straps and shirtdresses make it particularly easy to slip off one shoulder or unbutton to nurse. Look for pretty prints which help hide inevitable baby messes. Here are some options for you, including a few actual nursing styles that are so cute, you’ll want to wear them long after you’re through:
