Allette: Nursing Clothes You’ll Wear After They’ve Weaned

Nursing, or planning to nurse but don't want to look like it? Consider the new line Allette, from two Brooklyn businesswomen (and moms) Celine Cohen and Oksana Pavlowsky. The duo, which launched the brand last summer, is dedicated to creating stylish nursing clothes that offer discreet access, flatter the post-partum body and are easy to care for (for obvious reasons). They describe the line as "feminine with a hint of badass" and promise to take you effortlessly "from snuggle to soirée."
