Clothes to Nurse in

What do you wear in the hot weather to nurse??

Nursing tanks work on & off for me (they seem to compress me) and i have to wear something over them which makes it HOT.
what do you wear (and give store names, too, please!

I need some tops to nurse in. nothing fits from whenI had my last baby.

I don't like nursing tops, so I just do layers - a nursing bra, thin undershirt, and then my normal shirt. When DS3 wants to nurse, I lift the shirt up, pull the undershirt down (it's always a spaghetti-strap tank, and the neck stretches down), and unclip the nursing bra. It's worked so far for me, even in this crazy Georgia heat .

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

I like stretchy regular tanks of a nursing bra (or a stretchy regular bra), I pull my boobs up and out...if I want covered than I use a burp cloth and just hold it over my boob. I know all aren't that comfortable though.

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

i wear a low cut or wrap front top with a cami bra underneath. glamourmom makes it i think. i get the look of a cami, but not the extra layer. or i wear a nursing top with a bravado bodysilk bra. thats what i have on atm. its just an old navy top. or a REALLY stretchy shirt.

when its time to nurse, i stick a burpcloth under the bra strap and use that to cover the vast expanse of boob if my top itself doesnt cover enough.

I find most nursing tops are either uncomfortable, cheap materials or look unattractive; they're just not my style. Rarely are they form fitting or flattering. I just wear V-necks or tank tops and use my nursing cover.

Target has a wrap t-shirt that I am nursing in. It is just with their regular clothes and I think it's on sale for less than $10 right now. I was surprised at how easy it was to nurse in.

I almost always wear lose fitting V-neck shirts and nurse through the neck hole.

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

Anything loose enough for me to pull the shirt down and the boob out. I definitely can't do layers when it's 110 degrees.

Re: Clothes to Nurse in

reason i ask is I bought a stretchy neck top from Target (tank top) but it stretched out the 2nd time i wore it for this purpose. i hate things that are too revealing or low. I don't love nursing tanks because they seem to small in the bust. I am usually small chested so this is an adjustment for me. the seem to hinder my milk production slightly - not sure. 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.
