I use a nursing tank top. It has a little button to undo the strp. I love it! It works wayyy better then nursing bras. Good luck! I got it at walmart,

I just hiked up my regular bras. I've tried nursing bras, but I prefer to have better support (due to back problems). However, I should mention that I don't generally have nursing problems (like clogged ducts or anything) so I have never had to be really careful with the twins.

And what happens if you leak? I could be in a grocery store and hear a baby crying and I would leak when I was nursing. I can't live without a bra and nursing pads. They are uncomfortable as hell but I've lived through the embarrasment in public with wet boob spots. lol.

i just pull my boob out over my bra, or pull it out under, depending on how the bra is shaped and which was is easier. 

ive never used a nursing bra

I used a regualr bra and either slipped my boob out the bottom or top (depending on the style of shirt I had on) to nurse. When you put it out the bottom and position the babies head right, you don't even need a cover.

I do have a couple nursing bras, but I also use normal bras and either pull my boob up out of it on under it and I use sports bras that hook in the front and unhook all but the bottom hook and pull my boob out.

i thought they would be jsut a convienience. i had them with my first and with my second i decided to go without and jsut used normal bras and pull them down......that lasted about 6 days before i went and bought nursing bras. nursing attire whether it be tanks or bras are MUST HAVE

I use nursing pads. I've been breast feeding for 7 weeks now and have never had a single leak ( I use either johnsons or medelas nursing pads.. prefer medela!) And I leak alot sometimes but the pads catch them all.. a tank is really no different than a nursing bra other than the fact that it covers your whole stomach :) So when I pull my shirt up I'm still completely covered!
