Open-Front Maternity Kimono This open-front maternity kimono makes nursing stylish again. Here's how she got on. Why make something for feeding, that is regularly going to get covered in sick and milk, hand wash? I would happily have worn it every single day, except I didn't read the washing instructions it's hand wash, too and put it on a modest 30 degrees cycle and it shrunk into a tiny thing.
It's also hand wash but didn't shrink as much as the other - but the fabric has gone fluffy so when I hold the baby, he gets a mouthful of black fluff. This is essentially a vest with no fabric covering the breasts.
This has an inner lining so when you undo the buttons to feed, there's a panel above the breasts covering your chest. And the blurb on the packaging goes on and on about how you must love your body, you're beautiful, don't worry about what you look like, you're gorgeous from within - and it's an effing corset. My partner thought it was quite sexy but I don't think I could wear if for a whole day. So there you have it. There's absolutely no need to buy breast feeding clothes - especially if they're not in a style you would ordinarily wear.
However, if you're due a few new tops, and see a feeding one that you like, you never know: This article contains affiliate links, which means we may earn a small commission if a reader clicks through and makes a purchase.

Nursing moms don’t have to give up comfort or style when it comes time for breastfeeding. These clothing picks will keep any stylish momma on trend with pieces that look like anything but nursing gear. They don’t need to specifically be “nursing clothes” to work they just need to have easy access to the boob to work!!! I’ve been searching for nursing specific options to make my life easier they need to be functional, yet still stylish, so that you can’t tell the difference if they’re nursing clothes or not. Nursing access comes via hidden zippers near each boob, which go from the armpit to the belly button—helpful if, like me, you’re very busty. Overall, the collection is really cleverly thought-out: Everything can be easily layered, and I really liked that the nursing tops are not also maternity clothes, so they’re more formfitting.
