hey mommas. ok this is my first summer breastfeeding and I am LOST. I know I will be swimming quit a bit (including a vacation in 3 weeks) so I need to find something that is milkymommafriendly. I deff dont have the body to rock a bakini so that is out of the picture lol.. Im just trying to find a way to stay as modest as possible without not enjoying the beach this year. so if anyone knows where to get swimwear for breast feeding please let me know. :)

Maybe a tankini with a tie top.
I am in the same boat as you. How old is your baby?

he is 4 months old, I have seen nursing suits before I just dont know where to get them. I dont really want something to untie and my other boob to be flopping away in the wind as I feed him lol.

My baby is four months too. My old tankini had a loop and hook. I should pull it out of storage a try it out. I think if the suit is wet it should stick more to the body. Kwim?

any swimsuit is easy to nurse in as long as the top is low. They are stretchy. Just buy a speedo (too high of a neckline) and you'll be fine.

Deep v-neck tankini, or strapless, that you can pull down or over (without the other side falling), or a tankini that you can pull up would work. I've also used a sports bra underneath a tankini, just pull the bra up and the tankini down. Sort of like the 2-shirt method, just with a swimsuit.

Tankinis are quite possibly the greatest swimsuit invention since Lycra! I've never liked bikinis in my life, and the problem with a one piece is going to the bathroom. What a NUISANCE! But with a tankini you only have to pull don the bottom. And for nursing, lift and latch!

I haven't nursed in 11 years. Still rely on tankinis!

Yep Tankinis! I'm sure you can pay out big money to somewhere for a "nursing swimsuit" but in over 3 years straight of nursing i just use a tankini and pull it down (i personally would rather show the top of my boob then my mama belly) If your not comfortable with that you can use a lightweight blanket as a cover or pull up the tankini.

I will be using a tankini
modesty is at the bottom of my list when it comes to nursing
after almost eight months, I just do it hehe
