Re: Clothes to Nurse in

with this baby, i'm going to use the tanks from www.undercovermama.com they are so cool! they clip onto any nursing bra so you get the support you need. pull outer shirt up, unsnap the tank and you are covered. they are having a 30% off sale right now with free shipping if you buy 2. i haven't used mine yet, but they fit my LARGE tummy and they are a longer length which is great.

I have worn them nursing other babies and never a problem. I need something easy but either it is too low or I am ruining the shirt.
Motherhood Maternity doesn't have the most awesome selection of nursing tops, but I have bought a couple of their tops with elastic around the neck line (like these: http://www.motherhood.com/Product.as...tegory_Id=MC29 http://www.motherhood.com/Product.as...tegory_Id=MC29 )
I wear them all the time...a couple I've been wearing since DD was born 15 months ago. They do not stretch out and are not very low cut on their own (no cleavage showing).

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

I really like these tanks. When I'm at home and at night, I wear just the tank over a nursing bra. I pull the neckline down to nurse. When I'm out of the house, I wear one of the tanks under a regular shirt. I pull the regular shirt up and pull the tank down, unhook my nursing bra, and you really see anything.

You can also use a belly band (like the Bella Band) under your shirt and just lift up the shirt (this hides unsightly back/bellies).
I just wear the Target V-Neck "boyfriend" tees and pull my boob out of the neck hole. When I need a little more modesty I have a few camis that I cut holes in at nipple level. LOL they look funny but work really well.

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

I bought this shirt at Target in almost every color they had.



Because of the faux-wrap-around, cross over neck-line, it is very easy to pull the side down that baby is going to nurse from and the other side stays covered. It is a pretty high neck line, given that it is a v-neck and I found it very modest. I also like the fit; it is very flattering and it's a faux-wrap around because the double layer is only at the top and is only a single layer of fabric beginning just under the bra line. That makes it much cooler in the summer heat. I love this shirt! Hence me buying every color/pattern.

And they also have a ribbed tank that is great for summer.



The neck is stretchy enough that I can pull it down to nurse but it isn't a super-low neck line so I feel covered. It is form-fitting but I just throw one of their light-weight short-sleeved cardigans over it and it is one of my fav outfits.

I have this one in white and just wear it open/loose over the tank and it is super comfy, cute and breathable in the TX heat. Love!

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

I love motherwear shirts, I have a couple of gap nursing shirts, too. I also buy tops at places like walmart and thrift stores that have elastic at the top. Those always work if you're using a nursing cover. The shirts that are specifically for nursing are always my faves though, especially when I forget to bring a hooter hider ----or when the baby gets old enough that they keep uncovering themselves and don't like the nursing cover over their head anymore.

Yup, I don't see the point in spending money on special clothes. Stretchy with a low neckline? Check. Pull breast out neck hole. I've done this through every season now. I don't even bother to unclip the nursing bra, simply push it out of the way. It seems like trying to align a bunch of secret openings would be more difficult.
