It definitely WOULD be salvagable IF it were just the straps...I can sew and reinforce the straps. But there are actually 4 layers underneath. There's the very underneath layer (which is a double layer itself and herein lies the trouble! LOL) ... Of this double layer, only the INSIDE layer has slits .. and the OUTSIDE part does NOT. Then there's another layer on top of this, which you see is the elastic tug down part and THAT is double layer too ... and then finally is the outside part of the shirt. Ok, so that's technically 5 layers. LOL

It's sooooo HOT here (we have NO winter) that I was definitely looking forward to wearing this shirt! ... ...and then to get a shirt that doen'st even have complete holes for the boobies was so disappointing. lol
oh my word, it looked so much simpler than that. I'm so sorry, that really stinks... maybe you should contact the company for instructions on how to use it.

If you look at the website this is what is says on how to use the top and what the slits are for!

# To nurse, lift up top fabric and pull down on inner layer to access both breasts easily and discreetly. Slits in the underlayer are for breast pads.

HTH!

I can see it now how it would work now after that explanation....

Also though, they are really good about taking items back for exchange or even refund. I sent a shirt back after like 2 or 3 months, I just kept forgetting about it, and they still refunded my money, no questions asked. That's nice..

But why can't we get more of this stuff in the stores so we can actually try it on! It's annoying that pregnant and nursing moms don't have a lot of choices or places to TRY stuff on. I hate ordering things and then returning them when they don't fit or look right.

It says the holes are for breastpads and to nurse you lift the top layer and pull down the inner. Sounds like what I do with all my shirts anyways. I don't see where it could cause many problems. I love tops like that for nursing because the long flowy bottom parts are usually lightweight and cover my tummy and DD can't pull them off.

I think it's kind of funny that a lot of us that wear nursing shirts do it to hide the belly fat. When I NIP my big concern is the belly fat, I would rather the world see my saggy boob than my firm fat!
