Nursing the Postpartum Wardrobe
One of the toughest wardrobe conundrums this editor faced when having her first child was the lack of clothing suitable for breastfeeding. Maternity fashions are in abundance, but what about garments that allow you to whip out your breasts, made from fabrics that are resistant to milk stains?
Turn to Au Fait Mama, a Vancouver-made line of breastfeeding clothes, that features pieces like the Nurture t-shirt or Nourish Long Sleeved-top. Elasticized bamboo fabric allows them to be stretched down at the neckline and the elegant cuts accommodate a growing bump during pregnancy and the less attractive post-partum bump.
Next in line? Glasses that hide under-eye bags and a magic scrunchie that give the appearance of washed and styled hair. We wish…. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
