Nursing Tank By Undercover Mama

I used this nursing tank more than nursing bras when I had Ayven .  It’s nice and long so when you are nursing, you are not trying to pull your shirt down from the back or trying to cover up your stomach.  You can wear a regular shirt on top and this is a great form fitted but easy to nurse invention!

The clips come on and off so easily and the material is super soft.  The top of the tank hooks into the bottom part of the clasp on your nursing bra and it flaps down with your nursing bra cup, so you don’t have to lift the entire undershirt to give your baby access.  Now they have ones with lace which adds a bit of fashion for new mommas.  Great invention for nursing moms!



Bravado Bliss Nursing Bra 

I’m currently nursing and using the Bravado Bliss Nursing Bra and love it!  It’s smooth, seamless and is really comfortable. It has just the right amount of padding, not too much and not too little, so helps you stay dry if you leak a little, hides nursing pads well, gives you great ‘cold’ protection, plus feels soft on those sensitive spots.

There’s no underwire either which was crucial for me, but still gives me good support for having a larger cup size. While it’s pricey, it’s lasted a lot of washes so far and still looks new since the quality of the fabric is awesome. The snaps at the straps allows me to have one handed nursing access and are so easy to snap on and off. The Bravado Bliss is nursing bra bliss. 🙂



Gilligan & OMalley Nursing Soft Cup Bra 

I tried almost all of the bras on this post and I really feel that you can’t go wrong with any of them.  But the one that I was my “go to” bra when I was nursing, was the Gilligan & OMalley Nursing Soft Cup Bra sold at Target.  This bra was my absolute favorite…it’s so comfortable and soft, provides great support and gives good shape.  Plus it’s a bargain bra…the value you’re getting for the price you’re paying is awesome.

I have to say though, I read many reviews that claimed this bra does not work for larger cup sizes and that it runs on the smaller side.  Many are saying that it’s a no go for larger than C cups (which didn’t apply to me!).  I think the best thing to do is try it on and judge for yourself.  For me, it worked great and I’d recommend it to all nursing mommas out there!



Medela Sleep Bra

This bra was the most comfy bra when I was nursing at night! I loved how it was not tight, had no underwire and plus it was so supportive! It was a great bra to wear at nighttime because it was easier to nurse from the drawback design.

You have to wear a nursing pad with this bra to prevent any leakage but it’s still definitely worth it. The price for this bra is a steal too.  It comes in two colors nude and white.
