LOVE MILK Nursingwear was founded in 2010 by Helena Henning in Sweden.
The idea of the original Love Milk nursing top (now called Emma) came to Helena while expecting her third child. At the time she had given away all her old nursing clothes, and struggled to find nice enough new tops and dresses that she felt would be worth the money. She also wanted to nurse in comfort and style and feel confident to do so just about anywhere. So Helena set about developing a top that works as an addition to your existing wardrobe, making less impact on your wallet and the environment, and letting you stick to your pre-baby style. She was also determined that it is made from eco-friendly materials and affordably priced.
Helena soon discovered the real need for new mums to dress as stylishly as they used to before they had babies. Most breastfeeding garments she found were either frumpy or just aimed at lounging at home, and very rarely did she come across a beautiful dress designed for nursing that was also flattering and trendy. So the business took off with the aim of creating a fashionable breastfeeding collection, with dresses and tops featuring a clever and hidden nursing access, and also being nice enough to wear at weddings, parties, dinners or just when you want to feel pretty. All the garments are still eco-friendly and affordably priced.
“Love Milk focuses on sustainable, easy and colourful living. But, most importantly, we want to help making nursing easier and let all mothers feel beautiful.” Helena Henning, founder of Love Milk
Here are some versatile and stylish pieces from the Love Milk Collection which have caught our attention:
BRIGITTE can be used both as a nursing dress or as a longer nursing top. Featuring a chic, classic slash neck and side ties, which you use to shorten the dress.
This beautiful sheath style dress is a timeless design and will flatter your new postpartum curves beautifully. The Brigitte dress can morph from day to night with the addition of some gorgeous accessories and a pair of classic heels. The Brigitte dress will allow you to nurse discreetly in style and comfort. One of our favourite designs from the collection.
Access nursing through the armhole. To feed, simply pull the armhole over the breast and the underneath panel aside.
Brigitte is also available in Mulberry, Mocha and Black.
FAYE nursing top with peplum has a flattering V-neck that emphasizes your gorgeous mummy curves. The side ties are tied either under the bust or around the back for a variety of looks. The generous width of the peplum panel also makes room for a baby bump making it a great investment. The sleeves are long and straight with elastic gathering at the cuff. The beautiful bamboo fabric drapes beautifully over the body, resulting in a very flattering fit which is sure to draw plenty of compliments.
To feed your baby in a discreet manner while keeping your body covered and warm, simply separate the gathering over the breast. The gathering across the bust hides the clever nursing access and adjusts to your changing bust size.
Faye Nursing Top is also available in Crimson, Black and Mulberry.
DONNA leggings are incredibly comfortable made from a soft and stretchy organic bamboo jersey. There is room for a baby bump in the extra high waist, that can be folded down so you can wear the leggings without a bump too.
Donna leggings are truly the most comfortable maternity leggings on the market thanks to the unique design of the soft, stretchy extra high waist. Perfect for any stage of pregnancy and especially ideal when you are in your third trimester and you are fast outgrowing many of your maternity pants! These stylish leggings can also be worn postpartum making them a fantastic buy!
Donna leggings are available in a variety of colours to coordinate with your wardrobe.
