7 Of The Most Comfortable Nursing Bras, Pajamas, and Loungewear For Breastfeeding Moms

by Stephanie Kaloi

When you have a new baby, there are a lot of decisions to make: Where will the baby sleep? Will the baby wear cloth diapers or disposable?

Will you be breastfeeding or not? And all of those decisions are really up to the parent or parents to make: no judgment, full stop. And when it comes to feeding your baby, whether you choose formula or breastfeeding, you might be surprised by how much gear each requires. Formula-fed babies need bottles, nipples, and a seemingly impossible number of cans of formula, and breastfeeding moms usually need a pump, bags to store milk in, and comfortable nursing bras to boot.

While I’m not here to help you figure out most of that, when it comes to comfortable nursing bras, I am flat-out riveted by all the options that moms have these days! From everyone’s favorite place on Earth (Target, hello) to specialty online shops like Kindred Bravely, nursing moms seriously have so many choices.

And you know what? I’m happy for you. Here are seven of the most comfortable nursing bras, pajamas, and loungewear for breastfeeding moms (because you need it, friend).

Sublime Hands-Free Pumping and Nursing Bra

This nursing bra is one of Kindred Bravely’s most popular products, and it’s not hard to see why! You can breastfeed or pump totally hands-free, which is a lifesaver if you have anything else you want to do during that time. Whether it’s reading articles on your phone, texting a friend, or finishing a work email, this nursing bra makes it all much easier.

This matching set is designed to be worn while you’re pregnant and after, and it’s super breastfeeding-friendly. Honestly, it looks so cozy that you might want to wear it whether or not you’re breastfeeding a baby.

This long-sleeve nursing top is great for cooler temperatures, and the design is particularly spectacular: You can unbutton the buttons on the front to make breastfeeding easy, and the tank underneath will help keep you covered up if you prefer.
