How in the world are you supposed to stay modest when you're not used to humongous milk-filled boobs?

I've always had a B or C cup but when I'm breastfeeding there is no way to keep the size D or E boobs hidden. I don't want to wear turtlenecks in the heat of Houston but I don't like showing cleavage either.

Not much you can do to hide those melons. Lol do t-shirts not fit you? I have been wearing tank tops since I had my dd.

Do the 2-shirt method. Get a tank that has a stretchy arm or neck holes and wear under a regular shirt. Shirt goes up, tank goes down. Latch baby on. No need for nursing shirts that are usually very expensive. The tank covers your stomach/sides/back and the shirt covers the top of your boob and anything else.

THIS or get aline tank tops..mens wife beaters, and slit then with scissors near the nipple area and that works.  Thinner than the 2 shirt thing

Do you mean just in general?  Or when you are NIP?  If just in general...I have no advice.  I have no problem showing cleavage.  I am normally a DD (when not nursing) so, you just get used to it.  If you mean NIP, I agree with the 2-shirt method.  You can pull one shirt up and leave one down.

I was a 38G when dd was a younger baby (before I lost weight) and the 2-shirt method worked great and showed nothing. Practice in front of a mirror until you're comfortable. :)

Do you put yourself before others? No? Then you're modest. The only modesty that counts, that is. **smile** Adam and Eve did NOT get in trouble for being naked.

Crew neck, jewel neck  and boat neck shirts. No V or scoop necks.

Idk girl but I'm wondering why am I the only breastfeeder whose boobs stayed same size:/ with my first baby they grew one size while breast feeding but when he weaned I lost that plus a size lol. I was a 36C almost D but went down to a B and now im a full c. Lets just hope I don't lose another size when the baby weans lol.

Lol thanks y'all! The 2 shirt method sounds good. Sounds like I could keep then covered while NIP. At home I pretty much let them all hang out of my tank tops. ;)

Imagine breastfeeding twins. NIP is next to impossible, at least it is for me.

I wear a 38f, I live in Houston, and I never have had a problem! I wear nursing tanks from Walmart and wife beaterish tanks from old navy. Tank goes up, nursing tank down :) I refuse covers! Too darn hot in this aweful state! I miss ohio ;)
