default Clothes???

Post by gem1981 on Mon May 19, 2008 8:08 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows of anywhere that sells nursing clothes at a reasonable price? I've got a couple of vest tops from mothercare that I end up pulling down anyway, and a top from vertbaudet but it obviously a breastfeeding top. I've got circles where my boobs are.
I know I could just pull my top up but I'm embarrased about my jelly belly so wouldn't want anyone seeing that!!
Any recommendations?

I tend to wear clothes with button down fronts or zips with vest tops underneath. I buy a bigger size so I have room to manouver my boobies.

My fave is a wrap top with a vest top under - pull wrap to side, and vest up - its discreet, and still hides belly, and is cheaper! (I got loads of wrap tops from charity shops!)

I have bought a couple of nursing tops off Ebay - but they are expensive - and i dont think they are better than wearing a normal top - in fact, some expose you even more!

I agree they are very over priced for what they are. I too buy larger tops and even dual layer so you lift one top up while the other stays down.

Hi Gem , im more worried about everyone seeing my belly than i am my boobs, i have just seen something on ebay that might help, they are like a boob tube but you wear it on your tummy under your top.

Wearing a vest/spaghetti top under another top has the same effect - but covers more. And you can get them ffor a couple of pounds.

I know what you mean off Ebay - they look quite good, its just what you prefer hun x

Thanks ladies. I've got a bbq to go to on 8th June and don't want to spend all day running inside to feed her. I'll have to buy something as I'm still in my maternity clothes :cryyy: and I didn't buy many maternity clothes anyway.
I think I might get a wrap dress and wear a vest top under. Might browse ebay....

I tried a few different nursing tops, the best I tried were from (*ADMIN LINK REMOVED) - they work like your ideas of layering up and can be worn under your own clothes as well as the wrap tops they sell.

I mostly used wrap tops with vests, or wore my bump bands over my tummy. I had a couple of bf tops from H&M that I quite liked.

Make sure you keep your tummy and back covered when feeding in the winter! I got a terrible chill to the kidneys feeding in a draft last year - I was sick for days. Rolling Eyes
