What nursing clothes will I need?

I'm 35 wks and beginning to think about life post-pregnancy! I am hoping to be able to breastfeed and so just wondering what people would recommend I buy before baby arrives? I know that buying lots before knowing how big I'll be and whether I manage to BF longterm is not wise, but I guess I will need something.

Any advice?

I'm 38 weeks, delivering next week. I think floaty shirts/blouses to disguise the mum tum with stretchy vest tops underneath are going to be my friend.

I'm having a csection so I'm pretty sure ill still be in maternity leggings for awhile too.

A couple of nursing bras, not too many as size may change in the early weeks.
Vest top with another top is the best combo, vest pulls down and covers mum-tum, other top lifts up.
Waterfall cardigan also good for covering up.
Nursing cover only if it makes you feel more secure.
