So you’ve had a look around the internet and your local high street stores, and for the life of you, you cannot find anything to wear. Now, it’s not because you’re fussy and it’s not because the dress code for an event is too specific, it’s because you’re a mama to a new baby and you’re committed to breastfeeding that little bundle of joy!
There are no clothes available for you, none that are reasonably priced or beautiful enough for your style.
We get it, that’s why we started Chic + Discreet. Go check out our shop to see our inexpensive breastfeeding tees.
To tired to keep shopping right now? That’s fine, the shop will be there when you perk up a little bit. Keep reading though because we are sharing a super simple tip to turn your normal clothes into your best breastfeeding pieces.
You’re going to have at least two layers on at any point so this advice is best for cooler climates.
You will need:
- Underwear – your breastfeeding bra
- Underlayer – a camisole or vest with stretchy straps or a tube top / boob tube.
- Outer layer – t-shirt, blouse or jumper
Put everything on in the order suggested above.
When you’re ready to breastfeed, pull the under layer down below your breasts.
Pull the outer layer up above your breast.
Flip down your bra.
And tah dah- you’re now able to feed freely.
This is great in the cooler months because you can layer up. This method of feeding works similar to our I’m Still A Tees t-shirts.

Red! Red! Red! Red!
We totally love the colour red this season, and we are not alone.
Red is this seasons must have, go to, no matter the item!
Look, see! Red colours the 2018 catwalks so beautifully!
Red is everywhere!
Our advice to you is to take a real long look at your wardrobe and show your red items some love! If you don’t have any red items – get some! And if you don’t want to get some, chuck on that red lip religiously!
Don’t want to buy more Nursing Clothes? Cropped Jumpers are a breastfeeding essential!
Well, no! I’m not going to go out in the winter at all! How am I going to feed the baby. I don’t want my nipples to freeze!
Is something I said all too often while I was still pregnant and completely clueless about breastfeeding!
I envisioned myself wearing my nursing vest under a puffa coat and having to get my nips out in the middle of the road, while I get covered in truck loads of snow!
I know that is a bit extreme! But I really didn’t know what to expect!
So I’ve been working on some Breastfeeding Style Hacks to share with you!
Why Should I Get Excited About This?
Well, because cropped jumpers already compliment most wardrobes! And they totally make sense post breastfeeding.
If you have one, you’re mostly set this winter! If you don’t, get one!
And get a good one, so that is does make sense post breastfeeding.
Pair with high waisted … anything! To keep tum as covered up as possible. Tuck in your H&M nursing vest and you’re good to go!
You’re simply going to pull the crop jumper up (only a little because it is cropped – yay) and pull your nursing vest down under your boob!
I’m Fine Whipping My Boob Out – I Don’t Need To Do This!
Even in the cold? Okay!
But what about abroad?
👆🏾As A Mummy On The Go – to foreign countries! I think cropped jumpers are invaluable! You never know what the climate for breastfeeding is abroad! So why not go discreet with out absolutely faffing like a mad man with a breastfeeding cover!
We’re lusting over this combo!
The crop and the shorts?
The outfit and the beauty!

So you’ve got a big event coming up. You’ve got your baby with you. You’re going to breastfeed. But what do you wear?
Does it seem like you can never find anything sensual to wear? Darling girl, I understand you I have the exact same issue every time there is an event on, actually almost every time I want to go out.
But just look at that smile. I feel great. Because I look great!
Here at Chic + Discreet we have been busy trying to find you some of the most beautiful breastfeeding friendly garments. And thankfully, we’ve found a fancy festive piece just in time for the new year.
This Satin-Feel, V-Neck, Batwing blouse is from TopShop. It has a lose connection at the front which makes breastfeeding discreetly so easy! Isn’t that just so chic?
We are hosting a give away over on our Instagram. Make sure to follow us at @ChicandDiscreet and tag 3 mummy friends for your chance to win one of these beautiful blouses!
Because, let’s face it, you will barely find time to shower!
LEARN HOW TO TIE A TURBAN
Apparently, according to VOGUE:
it’s this season’s short-cut to glamour. But it is your short cut to everything!
Bad hair month. Covered.
Untouched roots. Covered.
Overgrown braids. Covered.
Hair thinning. Covered.
You won’t even need to ask for forgiveness for your appearance. You’ll have people asking how you manage to stay so chic when you haven’t had any sleep.
WEAR DUNGAREES TO BREASTFEED DISCREETLY AND TOTES CHIC-LY
Dungarees are a controversial piece of any wardrobe, apparently.
I learned a long time ago, way before the prospect of motherhood that it was a staple piece for moms. Now I know why!
Dungarees make it easy to breastfeed discreetly. Just pull the front panel over and secretly feed to the side. No cleavage, no side boob, no exposed nips!
Wear your dungarees without anything underneath. Simply throw on a bomber or a blazer (goodness, why does fashion have to sound so dangerous?) and you’re good to go!
In the colder months, chuck on a crop jumper underneath or a hoodie over the top.
And go, go and be free beauties, be free to feed in chic comfort!
