Nursing Access - The Ultimate Guide

Wondering which nursing tops to buy? … You’ve come to the right place!

Breastfeeding your baby is the most wonderful bonding experience, but that’s not to say that it comes without its challenges. Here at Seraphine, our nursing clothes are thoughtfully designed to make your life as simple as possible during this stage, combining comfort, practicality & innovative feeding solutions.

We’ve put together this quick guide to help you understand the different styles of nursing access and which nursing top will be right for you.



A simple double layer that lifts up for access - no clips, zips or fastenings needed. The top layer can be short, ending at the empire waist, or longer for a fully layered up look.

Drop Down

Just like a nursing bra, this is a classic double layer design, secured at the shoulder with clips. You’ll see this style in our bras & basic vests.


Princess Seams

Invisible zips concealed in the Princess seams. This is one of the most discreet breastfeeding options out there & one of our most popular styles.


Zips, poppers or buttons that run along the shoulder. These can be discreet & hidden or highlighted to make a fashion feature.



Zips, poppers or buttons that open up at the front of the top. This can be as simple as a classic button-down blouse, or utterly discreet with an invisible zip. Perfect if you don’t want to draw too much attention.


Zips, poppers or buttons that start under the arm and run down the sides of the garment. You’ll see this style most often in our popular nursing knitwear.


Draped Front

A stylish draped panel across the front, designed to flatter the figure and conceal easy nursing access underneath. As an added bonus, this style offers convenient built-in nursing cover – perfect for feeding in public.

Wrap Front

Ballet-style sash ties cross over at your bust, concealing discreet nursing access & creating a stylish faux-wrap effect.
