It’s a top priority for me to be able to breastfeed my baby when she arrives. I understand that there are certain circumstances that are beyond my control, but I will try everything in my power to make it happen. Finding clothing to look good, feel good, and work well for a nursing mom is difficult. The new GLAMOURMOM Nursing Bra Tummy Control Long Tank combines the best of both worlds. Not only is it a stylish tank that makes breastfeeding a baby a breeze, but it is also tummy-slimming shapewear. It’s a nursing bra; it’s a tank top; it’s a camisole; it’s shapewear, and I think it’s genius! The nursing bra tank is perfect for discretion and support when nursing in public, yet it looks beautiful and natural.
The nursing tank incorporates the original patented built-in nursing bra design with added memory filler in the adjustable wide spaghetti-style straps for extra support. The outer layer is made from 92% Cotton, 8% Elastane, and the tummy panel is 30% Elastane. It’s soft and comfortable, plus it has the perfect amount of stretch to be supportive without becoming uncomfortable after wearing it for any length of time.
The full, built-in nursing bra with hook closures allows for easy, one-handed access and when you unclasp to nurse, there is still a little fabric on either side of your breast, which provides you with a little more coverage. I practiced holding a doll, well actually a stuffed toy owl, and unhooking the bra. I didn’t have any trouble unclasping the bra with one hand and holding the owl with the other; it was multitasking at its best!
The design has been lengthened for fashion and coverage with an inner layer support panel that trims your tummy and your waist. The tummy control panel also encourages proper posture during breastfeeding while supporting your lower back and it pulls together excess post partum skin to help reduce stretch marks. Since this is my first child, I don’t know how quickly my body will bounce back after I give birth, but I do know that the tummy control panel is a welcomed addition to the nursing tank. After all, who couldn’t use a little additional control?
The tank can be worn alone or under another top and comes in a variety of fun color options. By choosing a neutral color like black, I can get ample use out of one tank top and by adding a sweater, I can have variation in style and increased warmth. It could stand alone with cute jeans or shorts or go paired with a long cardigan and leggings. Buying excessive clothing during the post-pregnancy period is unnecessary and an added expense that I really don’t need. By purchasing a few key pieces, I’ll have versatility without giving up style.
I’ve found a nursing top that provides full support, easy access, and discretion for my post-partum belly. The Glamourmom Nursing tank will become a staple of my wardrobe, and I’ve already packed it into my hospital bag so that I will have a nursing bra with me for after the baby is born. The tank retails for $44, but I can’t imagine it not holding out through at least six months of breastfeeding, making the cost per wear well worth it. You will be making a great investment in your own comfort when you wear Glamourmom.
