Before I became a work-at-home mom, I was a work-in-an-office mom. Specifically, my office's dress code was very casual. I probably pushed that dress code at times, simply because I couldn't find good nursing wear for work! Thankfully, some really smart clothing brands have started making great clothing options for moms who breastfeed - and who want to look cute doing it! Nursing-friendly clothing is out there - it's just a matter of knowing where to look. Try these 7 stores for some great breastfeeding-friendly tops!

Best Seller: The Soiree Top - Long-sleeve, double-layer on the bust. Looks pregnancy-friendly, too! Three great shades - two jewel-tone and one solid black.
My Take: I could make a whole wardrobe out of their basics. As a former office-working mon, I really appreciate that most options are office-friendly. That would make pumping at work so much easier, too!
