This really is the ultimate in fuss-free feeding. Seraphine has added an invisible zip to the front of this top, making nursing simpler and allowing you to adjust the neckline depending on your look. And, as ironing is just about the last thing on any new mum’s mind, they’ve cleverly made it out of a crease-free fabric too.
