The freshest nursingwear on the planet

about us

Welcome to Milk Nursingwear where we design fresh, fashionable clothing for nursing moms!


I am the founder of Milk and the mother of four beautiful breastfed children.  I was either nursing, pregnant, or both for nearly seven successive years, and my inspiration for Milk came after my first child was born in 1997.  

Breastfeeding was going great but when I searched for clothing that was professional enough to wear for pumping at work, or stylish pieces to wear when out with my nursling, I came up empty.  I loved the discretion and ease that Nursingwear provided but not the dowdy styling. I knew it could be improved – and I set out to change it.

Armed with my MBA, years of experience in retail buying and management, Marketing for Fortune 500s, and entrepreneurial spirit, I launched my first company, Expressiva Nursingwear. After building up that company and selling it, I launched Milk Nursingwear in 2009.

Milk Nursingwear is truly the freshest Nursingwear on the planet! Our design team is on the cutting edge of fashion and adapts the latest trends and styles for Nursingwear. We keep our prices affordable and our fashions current. Our fabrics are comfortable and easy care. We have had tens of thousands of happy customers the world over, and are sold in independent retailers across the US and around the world. You can find our store locator here.

I hope that Milk enables you to breastfeed your children more easily and helps you enjoy being out in the world with your nurslings.
