Finding clothes to breastfeed comfortably in isn't always easy. Finding Halloween costumes — even more difficult. It's not that it can't be done, but who wants to take off most of their Halloween costume to feed their baby in the middle of a party or while trick or treating with your family? What you need are some Halloween costumes that are easy to breastfeed in so your baby can get the nourishment they need while you're still in the holiday spirit.

Luckily, this is one of the few times all of those "sexy" costumes can be really convenient. Ample cleavage means it's pretty easy to grab your boob and feed your baby, right? So if you were planning on rocking a sexy costume, you're one step closer to a Halloween costume that's pretty darn easy to breastfeed in.

But if you want a costume that's a little more specific, like a character or a classic Halloween entity like a vampire or mummy, here are 13 Halloween costumes for you that are easy to breastfeed in. Some require a nursing tank top, just for your own ease, but most can be made with things you have in your closet or costumes you can buy without doing any extra work. So pick one perfect for your Halloween plans and rest easy knowing your baby can be fed quickly without having to undress.

1Morticia Addams


Dress, $13, Amazon | Wig, $13, Amazon

She's sassy, she's spooky, and she wears some great dresses that give you easy access to your boobs. To transform yourself into Morticia Addams, the matriarch of the spookiest family, you'll need a gothic-style black dress and a long, straight, black wig. All you have to do is pull the top of the dress down a bit to breastfeed your baby and then pull it right back up. Super easy and you'll look fantastic.

2Greek Goddess


Greek Goddess Costume, $35, Halloween Costumes

You are a goddess and you know it, so why not dress as one? Especially because the Greek goddess costume is flowy, comfortable, and incredibly easy to nurse a baby in. Just pull the fabric aside and then put it right back when you're done. If you want a little coverage, use your shawl. Perfect.

3Regina George


Black Shirt, $13, H&M | Nursing Bra, $35, ASOS | White Tank Top, $6, H&M

You know what else works great for breastfeeding? Cutting holes in your shirt, conveniently located over both boobs. This makes Regina George from Mean Girls the perfect Halloween costume for easy breastfeeding. Simply wear a black skirt, a colorful nursing bra, and a white tank top with a holes cut over each breast. Easy access!

4Molly Weasley


Long Patterned Skirt, $17, Amazon | Nursing Tank, $14, Amazon | Cardigan, $7, Amazon | Poncho, $20, Amazon | Wand, $9, Amazon

She's the most bad*ss mother in all of literature and, naturally, her costume is perfect for breastfeeding moms. If you've ever dreamed of being Molly Weasley, all you need is a long patterned skirt, a nursing tank, a cardigan, and a knit or crochet poncho. The louder the patterns, the better, because Molly always looks quirky and fun. Enjoy breastfeeding by opening the cardigan and pulling down the nursing tank. You can even use the poncho as a cover if you want so your costume isn't compromised at all. Don't forget your favorite pair of boots and wand.



Ghostbuster Costume, $34, Amazon

Y'all, it doesn't get much easier than dressing up as a Ghostbuster for Halloween. The Ghostbusters costume is just a zippered jumpsuit, so unzip a bit to have access to your breasts and you're good to go.



Vampire Costume, $40, Halloween Costumes

Your baby may have the fangs (Breastfeeding kind of sucks with teeth!), but you can dress up in the classic vampire costume and nurse your baby without an issue. There's lots of sexy cleavage in the costume anyway, so all you need is to tug the fabric down a bit to breastfeed comfortably.

7Rosie The Riveter


Jeans, $30, JCPenney's | Denim Shirt, $40, JCPenney's | Bandana, $10, Etsy

She's an icon for feminism, which makes a Rosie the Riveter costume perfect for breastfeeding and enjoying Halloween night. All you need is a pair of jeans, a denim button up shirt, and a red and white polka dot bandana. Put on the top, roll up the sleeves, and tie the bottom if you have some slack fabric. All you'll need to do is unbutton some of the shirt to breastfeed, but feel free to layer in a nursing tank if you're more comfortable.



Nursing Top, $40, Macy's | Gray Leggings, $30, Topshop | Crepe Paper, $2, Target

You are a "mummy" after all. Why not dress like one? I know most mummy costumes are beige or white, but you can rock a great gray faux-wrap nursing top, some gray leggings, and a roll of gray crepe paper. Just get dressed and drape some crepe paper up and down your arms, around your waist, and your legs. You can use safety pins to pin them in place. Hang a few pieces off the front of the top, but leave the opening alone so you can easily pull the top to the side to nurse while still looking like a mummy.

9Snow White


Snow White Costume, $42, Amazon

Pretty much any princess costume is great for breastfeeding, but there's an added benefit of being the original Disney princess — you can dress your baby as a dwarf. Rock a Snow White costume and you'll be able to nurse your little Happy all night long without either of you losing your Halloween spirit.

10Rey From 'Star Wars'


Rey Costume, $45, Halloween Costumes

For the breastfeeding mama who prefers a little privacy, dressing in a Star Wars Rey costume is the perfect outfit for Halloween. If you need extra room in the shirt, just make a cut in the v-neck to get it a little wider, but you can use the sashes on the front as a cover so no one sees that you're nursing your little Jedi.

11Dr. Sattler From 'Jurassic Park'


Nursing Tank Top, $16, Amazon | Button Down, $23, Amazon | Khaki Shorts, $20, Target

She's a total boss, just like you. Dr. Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park is great and her costume is super easy to put together and perfect for nursing. All you'll need is a blue nursing tank top, a salmon button down — tie it at your waist and roll up the sleeves — and a pair of khaki shorts. Put your baby in a dinosaur costume for an extra dose of Jurassic Park.

12Red Riding Hood


Red Riding Hood Costume, $44, Amazon

Not only is a Red Riding Hood costume adorable, but it also has a great top that makes it easy to nurse. Plus, you can pull your hood around if you want some extra privacy. Dress your little one as a tiny wolf to complete the look.
