I don't know about you, but my experiences with nursingwear has been pretty bad. Not only can it be very hard to find garments made for nursing mothers, but they often LOOK like a "special" thing that kind of put you in the spotlight as a nursing mom. I had finally given up and resorted to wearing a light-weight tank under a stretchy T-shirt so I could have a somewhat in-style outfit and maintain my privacy while nursing. The problem here was that this is fine for everyday life, but not when we are doing something a little nicer like attending a birthday, going out to dinner with friends, hosting a party, attending church, etc.
When I became aware of Milk Nursingwear, I found a line of nursing wear that I fell in love with, and if you are a nursing mother they have you covered... literally! They have a wonderful selection of tops, dresses, sleepwear, bras and more... AND they have a convenient return/exchange policy so you can get exactly what you want in the correct size.
I've had a chance to wear the Shirred V-Neck from their ecoMilk line a few times so far, and it has maintained it's color and shape very nicely through multiple washings. I am most impressed with the fact that I feel very comfortable and stylish in this shirt. I even wore it to a family gathering with out-of-town guests and received lots of compliments on it.

About Milk Nursingwear ~ The Freshest Nursingwear On The Planet:
We design fresh, modern clothing for nursing moms and sell chic nursing accessories as well. Our brand is truly unique. What sets Milk apart is our sense of fashion and style, and our committment to supporting all moms through breastfeeding and motherhood.
I am the founder of Milk and the mother of four beautiful breastfed children.
My inspiration for Milk came after the birth of my first daughter in 1997. Early on I was introduced to the concept of nursingwear. While I loved the discretion and ease that nursing clothing provided, I did not love the dowdy styling. I wanted to feel attractive and fashionable and believed my clothing should reflect that.
So in June 2000, armed with entrepreneurial spirit, my MBA, experience as a Bloomingdale's buyer and a Marketing Manager, I realized my vision by launching a line of fashion-forward nursingwear. After seven successful years of running that company and bringing fashionable nursingwear to women the world over, I am doing it again now with Milk - better than ever before.
Milk benefits from all that I learned working with thousands of nursing moms the world over.
What sets Milk apart is:
•Excellent customer service. We are here to serve you. We offer fast shipping, easy returns and exchanges, and personal service by email and phone.
•Fresh, modern styles. We design clothing that is so stylish and flattering, you'd want to wear it even if you weren't nursing!
•We support moms. As moms ourselves, we know the joys and challenges that motherhood brings. We offer non-judgemental support for your feeding decisions, parenting decisions, lifestyles, and child-rearing practices. We support your efforts to breastfeed by making it easier and more fashionable for you to do so.
•Our support of female entrepreneurs. As a second-time entrepreneur, I love hearing about new businesses and helping women who are getting started. To this end, we will be showcasing new products on our site and blog to help new companies gain exposure. Email me if you have a product to suggest.
•A committment to responsible and ethical business practices. We treat our employees and vendors fairly and with respect. Honesty and integrity guide our business decisions and interactions.
