Nursing Friendly Suits

Finding a swimsuit can be tricky no matter what stage of life you’re at, but it can be even harder for some temporary phases like breastfeeding. Who wants to go shopping for a swimsuit right after you’ve had a baby? Probably no one! We know that, which is why we’ve designed suits that can transition easily from maternity to postpartum with comfort and style.

So the question is,"What swimsuits work well for nursing mamas?" We know life doesn’t stop when you’ve got a new baby, and we want you to feel confident when you’re ready to venture out with your new baby. 

What are some things new moms should look for in a nursing-friendly swimsuit?

Accessibility:We all know how hard it is to get a wet swimsuit off! Suits that work well for nursing will give you easy access for a quick feeding session.

Adjustability:Your body can change a lot while you’re nursing. Having adjustable straps helps you keep your level of support just right.

Coverage:No one wants to use a heavy (possibly wet) beach towel as a nursing cover. The right swimsuit will give you coverage to nurse comfortably, whether you like to use a cover or not.

With those things in mind, meet Albion’s nursing-friendlyswims! We've designed multipleone-piece swimsuits to be flexible and adjustable for new moms! We also have plenty of bikini tops that work great for nursing moms. If you have a new baby or struggle to find asuit that keeps you covered & comfortable, keep on scrolling to see our favorite suggestions!
