Need Nursing Tankini Top...suggestions?

Hi mamas! We are going to a big water festival with some of DHs family and will be out on a boat essentially the whole day on a Sat. & Sun. I'm still breastfeeding but occasionally introducing baby food (WIC provides so I get Beech Nut fruits, veggies & meats). We certainly don't use all they give us right now but try to give it every couple of days but primarily she just breastfeeds. Anyway, back to the point...I have a tankini halter top that's ok but not really easy to BF modestly (lots of men around on DHs side plus the inevitable drunks that will be out and about...don't want to set off anything). DD doesn't really like to be covered and in that heat I don't blame her. So I'm looking to get a nursing tankini top...preferably one that will go with the brown bottoms I have. Also I don't want to spend a fortune on it -_- so something reasonable would be nice. Any ideas? Good places to find them? While I like the halter top style, it does get to my neck after a while so maybe something different? Dunno...give me your ideas! Spam welcome!
Thanks!
Amy

I got 2 from motherwear in the winter when they were on sale for cheap, like $15. They are crazy expensive this time of year though.

Re: Need Nursing Tankini Top...suggestions?

yeah I'm noticing how expensive they are -_- I have a peasant style bikini top that's ok....I can pull it up pretty easily and still nurse fairly modestly...I'm not always comfy with my stomach showing though. Not sure what I'm going to do...I'm gonna check the local motherhood store next week and see what they might have before making a decision. I wish there were better options...There just aren't any that I really like enough to spend that kind of money on. If I REALLY liked it I could manage it...I just don't wanna spend that much on something I'm not thrilled with, KWIM?

Well, it's not a swimsuit, but there's always the ones at Target. They are inexpensive.
