Nice nursing clothing?

Hi Karen! I know you posted this a few days ago, so you may not need this anymore, but two websites I would recommend are Motherwear.com and BosomBuddies.com. Unfortunately, the sizes tend to run a little large for nursing moms, and I don't think they go down past a small, so if you're small they may not fit.
Or, as many others have said here, I just wear a spaghetti strap camisole or nursing tank and a nice shirt over top. It works very well!
I am actually so susceptible to plugged ducts, that I don't wear any bra at all - sometimes just a sleep bra to go out in public, but I take it off ASAP. It's not pretty (droopy!), but plugged ducts are not fun either. I will look at those nursing tanks - maybe I just need a different brand/design. Thanks!
I wear a nursing tank under a wrap-style shirt or long sweater and it works well. I went to a wedding a few weeks ago & wore a v-neck dress that I could pull the top part to the side. It's really hard to find stylish evening wear that works with nursing. As far as the plugged ducts... are you wearing a bra that has an underwire? A friend of mine told me to steer clear of underwire bras for that same reason. This website has awesome nursing tanks that offer a lot of support. www.comfykangaroo.com - they are great for layering. Good luck!
Thanks! I did some on-line searching and didn't really find anything "fancy" enough. I probably will just try to find a wrap shirt and wear a camisole to cover my tummy. I dread having to dress up b/c I have to wear a bra and every time I do, I get plugged ducts. Even (especially, actually) my Bravado nursing tank gives me plugged ducts.
