9 Polished Wardrobe Picks Under $100 That Are Both Pumping- and Work-Friendly
Maternity leave is over, and it’s time to trade those spit-up-covered sweats for real clothes that adults wear in public. But before you throw back to your pre-preggo work wardrobe, consider the new challenges you’re facing. Take your time, eat healthy, get active, and don’t worry about looking like a VS angel by postpartum month three. Instead of zipping yourself into fitted frocks or piling on cinched suit layers, style your wardrobe for your pumping self. This means easy-entry ensembles that let you pump breast milk without having to totally undress. Check out these simply stylish picks that are pure pumping perfection for the workplace.
This cute dress has a secret! The top lifts up, making it easy to pump or nurse without having to strip off the stripes.
If keeping things business casual at work is part of your office culture, this top is for you. The layers allow for easy access while providing this top with plenty of visual interest. Or if you need to dress it up, try wearing layering it under a sleek suit.
Go from day to night with this basic blouse: Pair it with a fitted suit jacket during work hours, then wear it as-is for that all-important first evening out with baby.
Buying nursing-specific tops isn’t always a necessity. This classic button-down is an easy-open option that’s ideal for pairing with a suit or skirt.
A simple LBD is one of the easiest work outfits to pull out of the closet and throw on — especially when you’re busy with baby. This wrap dress offers plenty of access for your workday pumping sessions. It also comes in other colors if you want to trade adaptability for flair.
Just pop open a button and you’re ready to pump. Pair this pick with your fave dress pants or a sleek skirt.
Again, the buttons make all the difference. And, bonus, the decidedly not-maternity style will make you feel less like a mombie (that’s mom-zombie) and more like the career you.
Add something extra under a blazer or cute cardigan. The sleeveless top is perfect for warm summer weather but still transitions well to the workplace.
Pair this pick in combination with a nursing tank or fitted blouse. The dressed-down cardigan is just right for a casual work environment.
