5 Actually Stylish Breastfeeding Covers, Because No More Awkward Tents, Thanks

by Lindsay E. Mack

All nursing moms should feel free to breastfeed like a boss wherever they may be. After all, it’s a pretty natural part of caring for your new child, right? But even if you’re totally supportive of a mom’s right to breastfeed in public spaces, you may not be comfortable baring it all when it’s time to feed baby (and that is also totally OK!) For those moms who like a little more coverage, it pays to invest a few stylish breastfeeding covers.

Nursing covers are great for the breastfeeding mom-on-the-go who wants to keep her business under wraps. Unfortunately, many of these covers are more utilitarian than fashion-forward. But why should a brand new breastfeeding mom before forced to give up her fashion sense the second baby arrives? Thanks to a few forward-thinking designers (and even a few entrepreneurial moms), there is a great selection of stylish breastfeeding covers available. From Nordstrom to Etsy, retailers have started catering to fashion-conscious, breastfeeding moms. Some are so chic, you’ll want to wear them even after you’ve weaned your little one off the nipple. Whether you like bold prints or classic solids, airy fabrics or warm knits, there’s a perfectly stylish nursing cover for you.
