Easiest clothes for breastfeeding in public

We'll be going to Disney World with my LO who will be 5 months the day we arrive! wow...how time flies! Anyway, I don't nurse in public really now and my clothes aren't really conducive to that either. What clothing do you find the easiest to be able to quickly start feeding baby and be modest? (store bought, homemade...) I do know that I don't care for double layer shirts because they seem to both come up! lol I'd like to get a comfy nursing tank too. I wear a 40 D at least, so supportive and full coverage aren't easy to find!
Thanks so much for any help!

Honestly, you can make anything fairly discreet. It's just all about exposing the least amount of skin. I know that doesn't sound super helpful so how about I throw in a V necked tank top type shirt. Very minimal skin showing and really easy access for your LO.

Nursing tanks are fabulous with a regular shirt. Pull up shirt, unsnap tank, covered belly and discreet. If you are going in the summer, this may be a little warm for you.

ETA-Target tanks are my fav too! I am on the tall side at 5'10" and they are long enough to cover my belly.

I found that some of my maternity tops offered a lot of coverage, b/c w/ the extra fabric, they were nice and drapey, especially the knit ones.

Re: Easiest clothes for breastfeeding in public

I live in the nursing tanks i found at target. they are the only things comfortable for me. i havent found any nursing bras i like. i wear the tanks all the time with a any shirt over them. then my belly is covered. also cris cross shirts are good too, then you can just pull a boob out with out lifting up your shirt. like this:

I also love my hooter hider, nursing cover, although my LO always grabs at it now !

Not too fitted t-shirt. I don't like the boxy look, but LLBean usually has some nice short sleeved vnecks that aren't skin tight fitted, but not boxy kwim?

ME TOO ME TOO! The tanks at target and a zip up hoody are my fav.
The mother hood tanks leave 'bra lines' (like panty lines but from their nipple cutouts) and the Target brand does not.

Re: Easiest clothes for breastfeeding in public

i haven't gotten the hang of reclipping nursing tanks/bras discretely. i do really like a regular soft bra and a regular cami under a knit shirt that isn't too clingy. i pull/fold down the bra and cami and lift up the shirt. when we are done, it's much easier for me to flip up the bra/cami than to reclip a nursing tank.

i also really like nursing w/ my mei tai and sling.

Re: Easiest clothes for breastfeeding in public

I live in my target nursing cami's too! I nurse in public all the time and the easiest tops to wear are the cross tops and button ups. That way if you don't want to advertise the fact your are nursing nobody is the wiser because you aren't having to pull a t shirt up.
