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.

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!

Our WCW on whatever day it is today! We love this cropped combo she’s got going on from Pretty Little Thing!
Are Diaper Bags Necessary?
Erm, Not if you’re a Breastfeeder they’re not!
PACK A CHANGE OF CLOTHES IS A MUST, FOR ANY BLOW OUTS, OR BAD SPIT UP SESSIONS.
WHILE YOU’RE AT IT GRAB A NUMBER OF BIBS, BURP CLOTHES OF MUSLINS! FOR THE SAME REASON.
POP IN YOUR, WELL BABY’S NAPPIES AND WIPES… YOUR ALL READY TO GO!
GET YOURSELF A BEAUTIFUL, IN-SEASON CROSS BODY BAG. IF YOU’RE BRAVE ENOUGH, WHY NOT TRY A BUMBAG!!
THESE CHIC TEETHING NECKLACES (YES, FOR BABIES WHO ARE TEETHING) ARE AMAZING AND SO SUPER DISCREET!
As A Breastfeeder, your bag is just that. YOURS!
