Chic “Hooter Hiders” {Nursing Covers}

by Nicole Hempeck on April 26, 2021

Breastfeeding your child is a big commitment, and in the earlier months it is a commitment that can require your attention every couple of hours, which doesn’t allow for a lot of time out of the house unless you are willing to nurse in public.

Some of them are referred to as “Hooter Hiders,” while others just plain nursing covers - but whatever they are called, they allow for you to have the freedom to move about town and nurse your baby as needed while accomplishing the day’s tasks - which wasn’t always the case.

We’ve rounded up a few of these chic “hooter hiders” so you can decide which is best for your needs, so having a baby doesn’t result in you living out your days as a hermit while you tend to their breastfeeding needs.

Thankfully, in recent years a few fantastic companies have developed nursing covers that allow you to do just that, without resulting in you giving up your modesty. In addition to that, they’ve made them aesthetically pleasing, so you can look chic while filling the tummy of your little bundle of joy.

You’re welcome.

Bebe Au Lait is the company in the feature photo above and they have a patented Rigiflex neckline that allows for you to see your baby and baby to see you while you nurse. They have a variety of patterns (as seen below) that are fashionable and appealing to any mom’s taste, so you can feel comfortable while out and about nursing your child in public.

Itzy Ritzy covers are eco-friendly nursing covers made with the green mom in mind. They come with a bone-in rigid neckline so you can see baby. The covers are all fully lined and the patterns have a modern feel. All covers are made in the United States.

The Peanut Shell covers, like the others, have the bone-in neckline which help you see baby. They offer a 97% cotton and 3% spandex material making the covers very soft to the touch. There are varied designs, colors, patterns, neutrals as well as bolds.


These are only three of many chic breastfeeding cover companies that offer a discreet way to be out in public while meeting the nourishment needs of your little one so you don’t have to be a hermit - just pick up a beautiful “hooter hider” of choice to allow for some modesty while you “do whatcha gotta do.”

I had a Bebe Au Lait. And I was never so thankful to have it as during a late night flight from Dallas to San Francisco with my 9 month old, sitting side by side with some random businessman. Talk about awkward! Thank goodness for nursing covers! ;-)

Brilliant! I always wore cardigans so that was my cover-up! My babies could never stand having stuff on their faces.

I just had my 3rd baby and I’m so grateful for nursing covers. I used to stuff my head under a blanket with the baby so I could help them every 5 seconds when they got distracted and broke off! Had this horrible target wrap by the time I had my second but it was too short so I was always self-conscious. I recommend having more than one so you can wash more frequently. My baby is always spitting up all over it! Yuckies!
