After spending months in maternity clothes, you want to look and feel like yourself again when you're back to work. But if you are pumping or nursing, you know that the fashion you choose has to be practical, because you may need to pump throughout the day or you may pop in to see your baby to squeeze in a breastfeeding session. Either way, you need clothes that will make it easy to pull your boobs out while still looking professional. So for a polished work look, here are 10 tops for breastfeeding that are perfect for the office.

If you are a nursing or pumping mom, you probably have stocked up on button down blouses, which are easy to open up to nurse or pump. There are a lot of mainstream (not designed for nursing) tops you can get, too, but nursing wear designers are making some pretty amazing pieces, which are probably a lot more discreet and convenient than non-nursing tops. Many of them come with hidden zippers and layers, which eliminate the need to fumble with buttons and clasps and keep you more covered while you pump or nurse.

Great work tops should be versatile, so you can wear them with pants or a skirt, as a layer under a blazer, or polished enough to wear alone. So here are some practical and trendy tops that you can wear in a number of ways when you go to the office. (And still get your boobs free.)
