When you’re in the thick of nursing, the words “feeling sexy” rarely come to mind. Something about being a human soda fountain to a tiny baby just doesn’t scream “I’m bringing sexy back.” But as it turns out, there are loads of really attractive nursing lingerie options that will perk you up even when 2 a.m. feedings have you feeding less than your best. With lovely lace, beautiful detailing, and hidden openings for easy access, these nursing lingerie options can be considered self-care.

Regardless of your size or stage of breastfeeding, you can find a nice option often with matching panties too. Or, if you want a stylish nightie that’s a little more dressed up, there’s that too.

Nursing may feel like a routine activity but what you’re wearing while doing it doesn’t have to. Shrug off those leggings and beat up tank top and step into a little something, well, extra. Even if you just throw it on for a special night out, knowing you have it in your bureau will provide a little pick me up when the days of nursing seem to be never ending. With these nursing lingerie options, you can reclaim your old self and consider the future when a good latch isn’t at the forefront of your mind.
