Shirts/tanks

I am having a hard time finding stuff that I am comfortable nursing in. I wear the undercover mama with my bras (I refuse to wear a nursing cover) and since it is so hot here in New Mexico wearing an undercover mama right now in this heat is down right torutre. During the day at home I wear my Bravado tanks or just regular tank tops and pull down.


Can any of you ladies recommend/point to cute nursing shirts without the wear mid-length mini shirt attached? It looks so weird and awkward.

I wear one nursing tank I bought at target, but for the most part I just wear regular tank tops. They're adjustable straps so I can loosen it up to pull it down. Regular tanks get stretched out like that. When I go out a usually throw a shirt over it to cover the top of my boob while I'm nursing, but when he was younger I used to hold a receiving blanket on his chest in front of him to cover the exposed boob. I also have a thing I made that I used last summer that is sort of like a dickey. It's a high cut shirt but very short so it just covers my cleavage. I don't really know of any good nursing tops though, sorry.

I wear spaghetti strap tanks with the shelf bra and a very thin t shirt when going out. Target has some that are lightweight and long so they work perfect for me.

All the nursing tanks I have are heavy and it's too hot and humid where I live to wear them.

LO is 5wk and is getting a bit distracted while nursing now almost the entire time because you know..he is noticing and hearing things and seeing things! the exposed part of my breast doesn't bother me that much but the belly thing bothers me.

Mine is just about 16 months old, and I know exactly what you mean. The whole distracted thing truly lasts a long time. I don't like having my stomach exposed either, after two kids I've got quite a collection of stretch marks, and my kids still think my belly ring needs to be poked and pulled. I started wearing the adjustable strap tank tops when I got my pregnancy boobs with my first because I felt slutty in regular tank tops that I couldn't pull up higher. She's 3 1/2 now and I'm still wearing them almost every day. I buy mine from H&M and they're about $7 each. I've gotten them at other stores too, but the H&M ones are my favorite for warm weather because they're cooler. I've been stuck in situations where I've had to nip without a tank top, and I kept my belly band in the diaper bag for that purpose. I bought it because it was supposed to help my stomach get into shape, but all I used it for was to cover my stomach while I lifted my shirt up to nurse. It looks like you're wearing an undershirt because baby is in the way of the gap. When my first was little she was a spitter, so I didn't always have a clean tank top to leave the house in.

I like some of the old navy nursing tops. I have a few from target too. I can't do the two shirt thing...I get WAY too hot since having my son. I also found the SO brand tanks are super stretchy so I can pull the top down (I wear them with a sheer button up shirt for a dressy look).

I was nursing in 100+ degree weather and learned very quickly, one shirt pulled UP. Never ever pull down.If you do that you can wear any shirt you want. Baby covers the belly, if you're concerned about that (I abandoned concern about that, too, though).
