It’s officially summertime and it’s getting hotter and hotter every day! Jumping in the pool or taking a trip the beach is most likely on the top of everyone’s to-do list. So today I’m sharing the best nursing friendly swimsuits under $50!
Finding nursing-friendly anything to wear can sometimes be a daunting task. That’s why I love doing round-ups featuring nursing-friendly items like the best nursing friendly dresses or best nursing bras. I love helping you find items you love so much that the fact that they’re nursing-friendly is just the cherry on top!
My goal for this post is to help you, my fellow breastfeeding mamas, find some swimsuits that make you feel beautiful and comfortable, while also making it easy for you to breastfeed your babies.
For the list of nursing friendly swimsuits below, I stuck to one-piece suits to make things easy. Also, personally after becoming a mom I prefer one-piece suits just because they are a bit more flattering on my new mom body. LOL
If you feel confident wearing a bikini, then all the power to you! Rock that bikini, mama!
Since I still want to try to help you find some awesome nursing friendly swimsuits, I listed some tips below for what to look for and avoid in swimsuit tops. As for the bottoms, obviously they don’t need to be nursing friendly, so just get the matching piece or whatever bottoms you like the best.
Here are a few features to look for in a swimsuit top that will make it nursing friendly:
Low cut. If you find a top that is low-cut enough, it should be pretty easy to pop a boobie out when needed.
Strapless. You should be good to go with a strapless top if it has sufficient support and lining. Just make sure it’s tight enough so that when you pull it down to nurse the whole thing doesn’t slide down.
Zippers, Snaps, Buttons, Ties, etc. Any swimsuit top that allows you to easily open and close it is also a good option.
Stretchy. Any swimsuit top that is made of super stretchy fabric will make it easy to pull up and down to nurse. Most bathing suits are pretty stretchy, so it shouldn’t be hard to find a good one.
There are also a few features you should avoid:
High Necklines. Swimsuit tops that have high necklines are a no-no. Unless you can somehow get a boob out through the side then you’ll have to take the whole thing off to nurse.
Non-stretchy Fabric. If you want a nursing friendly swimsuit top, then don’t get one that is made from non-stretchy fabric. If the fabric isn’t stretchy then pulling it up and down multiple times to nurse will either be hard to do or stretch out the top and cause it to be baggy.
Structured or Wire Supported. Stay away from any swimsuit tops that are heavily structured or have vertical wire support. You might be able to get away with underwire, but just be careful because that would mean trying to breastfeed like you were wearing a regular bra and that so hard!
