Not Only is My Belly Growing – The Women’s Nursing and Maternity Line Is Too!
It’s been no secret that my family is growing this year. We weren’t expecting to be expecting again so soon, but here we are! So what a perfect time for me to expand the women’s clothing line with more maternity and nursing options! What exactly am I adding? Read below! Not pregnant or breastfeeding? All of these tops are available for you too! Check them out!Place a Custom Order
Hoodies? Gasp! No Way!
Yes way! You all know I LOVE making and wearing hoodies. It only makes sense to ensure my ability to continue to wear them throughout my pregnancy and breastfeeding journeys! I know many of you are hoodie addicts as well, and are super thrilled about the newest additions! Here, take a peek at a recent nursing hoodie:
This specific hoodie, is a semi-fitted raglan style with nursing access via zippers along the sleeve seams. To nurse, simply unzip one side, lift the modesty panel, and you know the rest! You can even undo both sides simultaneously if you are pumping or want to use a milk collector on the other side while nursing. I wish I had one of this sooner! I wear mine every other day, and I’m not even nursing an infant anymore. My one year old only nurses at night, so I really just wear it because it’s so comfy! It will come in handy this fall when my next baby comes! Let’s take a peek at another hoodie style:
This stunning, German design has a perfect opportunity for a design feature with the front having a seam along the bust-line. This is a fitted, set-in sleeve tunic style top with an oversized, cowl-like hood. To nurse, unzip the zipper that runs over the bust, lift the modesty panel and go! If you’re scared of zippers, I am adding a similar style with access in the same spot, but with hidden access by overlapping fabric layers. Stay tuned for that! Now, for the newest hoodie addition…
The previously described raglan style nursing hoodie got an upgrade – a maternity option! This gives your hoodie a longer life span, since you can wear it through pregnancy AND afterwards as a nursing hoodie. Or you can be pregnant and nurse in it if you are in a situation like I am! I will wear this bad boy until the fabric disintegrates, it is seriously so comfortable! Let’s move onto some other tops that I’ve introduced this past couple of weeks.
New Nursing Top Styles – These Can Also Be Hoodies Too!
Seriously, I have all the love in the world for hoodies; however, I do realize that you can’t wear them all the time. So here are a couple of top styles that I’ve made recently that are really great for everyday wear or even office wear.
This slim fit raglan style top has nursing access on either side of the bust. No zippers involved! I’m personally excited to try this style, because sometimes undoing a zipper with one hand while holding a screaming baby can be frustrating. This style can be 3/4 sleeve or short sleeve and has the option to toss a hood on it too. Use lighter or heavier fabrics to suit the season! I’m still making a couple of revisions to this specific design, but it will be perfected and ready to go soon!
While this top was originally designed as a hoodie, I had a special request by a customer to make it into a standard neckline. I think it turned out great and is a totally awesome nursing top! It has a zipper that runs along the seam over the bust, which makes for perfect nursing access. This style has a two-way zipper so you can unzip either side easily, or both if you need access simultaneously. I also will include a modesty panel underneath for any future orders to limit any exposure of the top of the breast. Now, onto another maternity option!
This Swedish top is actually not drafted for nursing or maternity, but just so happens to be perfect for both! The deep, cross front makes nursing access very easy, and the flowy bottom has plenty of room for a growing belly! Now, onto my favorite maternity top!
This fitted, in-set sleeve top has a scoop neck, sleeve options, and length options. I made this one in tunic length to ensure proper coverage so that I could shamelessly wear leggings as pants. Ha! Also, the scoop neck style is perfect for nursing as well. I have tested it multiple times! I have made this top a few times before as a non-maternity style and it’s just love!
