I know what you're thinking: Stylish nursing bras? There is nothing stylish about a nursing bra, aka the granny-panties of the lingerie world. A comfortable nursing bra is there for fit, for function, for feeding — but not for fashion.
Or so you thought.
Turns out attractive nursing brasare out there, much to the delight of lactating ladies everywhere – myself included. Sure, right after having a baby, the only requirement I had of my underthings was that they were soft enough not to irritate my poor, cracked, bleeding nipples, but eventually, there came a time when I was ready to dress up again – and I'm talking lace, underwire, the whole nine yards.
Getting dressed – even in places no one sees – meant a lot to me as a new mom. This doesn't mean you have to say goodbye permanently to your favorite 100-percent cotton, no-lift nursing bra. It may not be stylish, but for that 3 a.m. feeding, does anyone really care?
Still, after three months of walking around in a sleep-deprived haze and wearing nothing but yoga pants and comfortable nursing tanks covered with spit-up, I was ready to dress up. There's nothing like putting on something lacy and sleek to feel like a new woman.
