While maternity fashion has advanced, there are still just a few businesses dealing in maternity wear that facilitate women in breastfeeding, regardless of occupation. Women have been struggling to balance breastfeeding demands along with their job.
Maternity wear in India is still more about pretty gowns that look fab in pictures but actually aren’t much practical as an outfit that one can slip on and go to work or travel in.
With influencer Diipa Buller-Khosla adding breast pumps to her red carpet dress to bring out awareness and many other celebrities breaking their silence on the much important issue of working nursing mothers, it’s high time to bring about the change.
Nursing wear with buttons in the front for feed access, jackets that can double as a nursing cover-up, and dresses with zippers on the sides that you can simply draw down, feed, and zip-up are all designed to appeal to the huge demographic of nursing mothers.
Here we look at our top picks to show how utility meets fashion to encourage and normalize nursing for working moms.
