A company run by women gets women! We know that your swimsuit needs to adapt to each stage of life with you, that includes motherhood. That's why offering nursing friendly swimsuit tops at Kortni Jeane is a must! We don't want to restrict our nursing mama's styling choices, because you know we're all about mix 'n match options over here. We have not one, not two, but FIFTEEN nursing friendly options for you. This is your one stop shop to learn how each and every one of our swimsuits can be adapted to be nursing friendly, and comfortably!
Nursing ladies, be prepared to be amazed!
We're starting off with our Latter-Back top
! This swimsuit top can be used for nursing by conveniently slipping off one strap or just pulling from the side for your baby's feeding time. This swim top is a great option for higher coverage than the v-neck shapes with the same functionality of adjustable straps that can easily be slipped off the shoulder for nursing.
The Netted Sweetheart top
offers coverage up top while you can easily lift up the bottom to nurse. We highly suggest this top for larger busts, a must have for nursing days! Best of all, the netted top won't slip around while swimming. If you're looking for a safe option - this is it!
It's all in the name! Our Off the Shoulder top
was created to easily slide off the shoulder for style and functionality! This top is perfect for plenty of coverage while swimming, with sleeves that easily slip off to allow for nursing. Simply slip one sleeve down while the other stays in place, while not having to worry about stretching out your swimsuit straps beyond repair. Or if you'd rather, the bottom comes up without the shoulders falling out of place for easy access as shown here. In addition, the v-shape in back also allows for plenty of stretch for our nursing mamas as their chests change in size.
Another one of our #1 suggestions for ladies with larger busts is the Oversized Ruffle top
. There's so much comfort in the elasticity of this top! It's easily stretchable so that you can feed your baby from below. It's also a great option to wear through your pregnancy
and keep for nursing afterwards. You can get a lot of use out of this top!
Sporty fit fans unite! The Racer Back top is an easy go-to. So many ways to nurse in this style, shown here from the bottom up. This top features a rounded neck for just the right amount of coverage with the racer back strap in back for a sporty look. This is the perfect tank we want to wear everywhere.
Next up is our Ruffled Around top
! You've probably seen our Ruffled Around top blog post
, featuring four ways to wear this fabulous swim top, but did you know that these options come in handy for nursing mom's too? This top offers plenty of coverage with an easy off-the-shoulder transition for nursing. We know that sometimes nursing comes with struggles that you never thought of before. You're not alone! Leaking milk and lopsided chests can make for an uncomfortable day out for any one of our nursing mamas out there! We've got you covered with this one. On our Ruffled Around top
, the large ruffle comes over your chest, adding coverage and distracts from any nursing mishaps. This option will stun you with it's accommodating fit!
What can we say? The v-neck shape is a life-saver when it comes to nursing friendly tops. With our Scoop-Back top
, the straps can easily be slipped off the shoulder for nursing on the go. As an added bonus, the straps are adjustable, allowing you to change them as needed for daily feedings and as your chest changes sizes frequently as a nursing mother. As women, we also understand you only nurse one side at a time (unless you have twins, which is a whole new level of nursing!) This swimsuit allows you to easily switch off sides while covering up the other.
You will undoubtably get the highest neck coverage in our Squared Up top
. The square shaped top comes up past your collarbone. If you're worried about cleavage this is a fabulous option. We especially recommend it for women with small to medium chests. With the high neck the easiest way to nurse is typically by lifting up the bottom. The Squared Up top is an ideal choice for women who want as much coverage as possible when swimming.
Another tried and true favorite is our Swing top
. This one is extra unique! The Swing top has a loose layer material over top, with a fitted layer underneath. For nursing, you can comfortably lift the fitted layer underneath while still being assured that the swing layer covers your chest. This option is perfect for beach days when there's nowhere to go and nurse privately. With this extra coverage, there's no need to worry! Another option is untying the straps for plenty of room for nursing as shown in the photo above. So, you can relax on the beach with your family and nurse in between play time.
Our Tied-Up top
is another great option for nursing because it's built as a halter top. The halter top strings can be untied or loosened for nursing accessibility. Additionally, the gorgeous large tie on the bottom that makes this design a fan favorite can be used for a little extra coverage. When untied it adds a few inches of fabric on the bottom so that you can cover up as needed. Last of all, the shelf bra is not attached at the bottom, so the separated layers make it easy to pull up the shelf bra to nurse while staying covered by the overlaying fabric. So, whether you have to nurse in public or not, it's a comfortable option for all sizes!
Our newest addition to the nursing friendly swim top family is the V'D Crop top
! We're welcoming this new favorite with open arms because it comes with adjustable straps and a V'D neck line, pairing for the perfect nursing fit. You can freely adjust the straps or slip one off the shoulder. This swimsuit is incredibly flattering on bigger busts and smaller busts alike. Check out more about our V'D Crop top here
The V-neck top
is by far one of our customer's favorite nursing friendly tops. It's probably because there are two easy ways to nurse with this one. For the first option, you can slip one strap off while you nurse. The v-neck shape makes this easier because it's easy to slide off only one side, without the other coming with it. For a second option, you can nurse from underneath. Because the bottom portion of this swimsuit is peplum shaped, you can easily slide it up, while using the ruffled fabric for coverage.
If you're a fan of one-pieces we have good news for you! We're going over how each of our one-pieces can be used for nursing starting with our classic High-Waist One-Piece
. Similar to the Swing top
, the tie straps make it simple to loosen or untie for nursing, but these straps are thicker for added support in combination with the v-neck.
The Skirted One-Piece
is the queen of one-pieces! If you haven't tried it yet you're missing out! Our customer's favorite part is how flattering the fit is on EVERYONE, making it a great option for postpartum and nursing! The strap can slip off for nursing and you'll get the one-piece of your dreams!
Last of all, our Sporty One-Piece
comes with adjustable straps, which we know is not only a great option for simplifying nursing, but also a must for long days of nursing as your chest changes sizes. Similar to our Racer Back
, the Sporty One-Piece
was created for moving around so you won't have to sacrifice your favorite swimmer style during the months you're nursing.
And of course, we couldn't write this post without featuring one of our favorite nursing mama's customer reviews! All of you have shown us new ways to wear these tops to nurse and proved that swim days can be just as functional while nursing than any other time in your life with Kortni Jeane!
