The idea for this style of nursing wear was developed on a cold, windy day in 1999 by Mia Seipel - the founder of Boob. She was having coffee with her sister in a park in Stockholm and came up with the idea while she watched her sister nurse her newborn son with her waist exposed to the freezing cold wind.
She came up with the idea there and then, and decided mothers should be able to nurse in comfort and style. Since then they have brought stylish breastfeeding clothes to new mums across Europe and around the world.
Boob Nursing Wear is our best selling brand of breastfeeding clothes. Put simply......it works.
Finding the Right Size
The best measurement guide for your nursing wear is your bust size. Boob Nursing Wear comes in a size range from XS to XXL.
74 to 80cm
|S||10||80 to 84cm|
|M||12||88 to 92cm|
|L||14||96 to 100cm|
|XL||16||104 to 108cm|
|XXL||18||112 to 116cm|
If your bust measurement is in between two sizes, you should choose the smaller size for a tighter fit - the garments are designed with an element of stretch, as you loose your pregnancy weight. You may want to order a larger size if you like a looser fit, but bear in mind your bust may not be able to hold up the overlapping layers.
When you buy a Boob garment, you are buying something produced with care. This is reflected in the high quality of the design, the function and the fabric. Boob strive to always use materials that are optimal for the environment. The greener materials they use today are:
Organic cotton cultivation is based on long-term, sustainable and resource-saving production systems. The cotton is grown without the use of any chemical pesticides or fertilizers. When you choose organic cotton instead of traditionally grown cotton, you are helping the cotton farmers as well as the environment. More than 90% of all the cotton we use in our production today is organic cotton, certified by GOTS.
Lyocell is a cellulose fibre made from a fast-growing eucalyptus, grown in sustainably managed forests. The cultivation requires only 5% of the water used in traditional cotton farming. The fibre is produced in a closed loop process, where 99% of the chemicals are continually recycled, reducing pollution and waste.When you choose lyocell instead of other cellulose fibres, e.g. viscose or modal,you are helping to reduce the use of polluting chemicals.
Fleece made from recycled polyester
The fleece we use is made from recycled PET bottles. A good way of using waste and saving on natural resources.
Washing and Care Advice
Removing Breast Milk Stains
Breast milk can leave grease stains. The thing is to treat the stain as soon as possible. If the stain does not go away, treat with a liquid detergent, leave for a while and then wash according to the instructions above.
Boob Nursing Wear Reviews
Madeline Jones, March 2 2009
I was determined to breastfeed my second baby after being unable to do so with my first, but have to admit that I did lack some confidence in the early weeks when feeding in public. When both you and your new born baby are learning the art of correct attachment you can feel quite exposed which can make you feel tense. I chose the Boob Nursing Tops on a recommendation. Lovely colours, great quality and they helped me to feed discreetly and confidently whilst out and about. No bare shoulders, so I even felt happy feeding whilst watching my daughter take part in her sports day, despite being sat in the middle of a school field and on full view of all the other Mums and Dads. They really did help me to relax whilst learning a new skill and meant that I enjoyed feeding whilst out and about as opposed to trying to get home before that next feed was due.
