A Fashion Guide for the Breastfeeding Mama

Elise Willson from Baby Bean gives us her guide to breasting feeding fashion under $90

Oh I remember sitting on my bedroom floor, nine months pregnant, surrounded by bags of previously packed away clothes, feeling so so so excited that in no time at all I’d be able to wear absolutely anything I wanted again! No more horrible ‘dressing of the bump’. Yay to a full wardrobe once again!

Put aside my serious naivety about ‘bouncing back’ to my previous size… it still hadn’t dawned on me that soon every fashion decision would be made by asking that one crucial question: Can I squeeze a boob out of this??

Yet again the glorious journey of child rearing smashes our ability to find our ‘style’ identity. Well actually, it probably just makes it simple.. Leggings, extra long button up top, messy top not and sunglasses to hide those bags 😉 There you go… There is your new life uniform! You’re welcome!
Buuuuttt.. if you’d like a few more options or just need a bit of online retail therapy (and what hormonal/emotional mum doesn’t?), then have a look at the steals I’ve found below. All under $90, breastfeeding friendly and all can be shopped from your comfy couch.. So you don’t have to change out of your leggings 😉
