Bravado Essential Nursing Tank

When M was born I bought a few nursing shirts and a single pair of nursing pajamas. It was enough for me. I knew I’d be going back to work and that once I started pumping at work I wouldn’t really need to wear nursing shirts. I didn’t leave the house for very long while I was on maternity leave and would usually return to my car or somewhere else private to nurse M while I got comfortable with nursing in public (NIP). Since I wasn’t doing to much, there wasn’t any real need for nursing clothing – I could just wear normal shirts and pull them up over my boob to nurse. This time around, things are quite different.

I’m more comfortable with breastfeeding this time around. I’m more willing to NIP – and to stand up to anyone who feels the need to say something about how “gross” or “inappropriate” it is (yes, there are people that say that to nursing mothers – Maryland State Law says that I, and all other breastfeeding mothers, have the right to feed our children wherever we please with or without a nursing cover). I’m not using a nursing cover this time around – I hated them with M and I’m fairly certain he hated them too, so I’m not going to subject myself or TNB to that since I’m comfortable nursing her without it. Anyway – no cover means I can’t just pull a regular shirt up to my neck and leave half of my stomach/side completely exposed and so – I need some nursing shirts.

Enter Bravado. Bravado is a fabulous company for breastfeeding mothers. They make amazing nursing bras… and they offered to send me one of their essential nursing tanks. This thing is incredible. It is super soft, nice and thick, and long enough that I probably could have worn it while I was still pregnant. Most of the nursing tanks I own have a “built in bra” in them… which is usually code for a piece of elastic that lands just under your breasts. For a long time, I’ve been hearing fabulous things about the Bravado nursing bras, but I just assumed that the “built in bra” in their tank would be another band of elastic. I was WRONG. SERIOUSLY wrong. The Nursing tank is more like a Nursing Bra with a tank top built in. The bra in this tank is an actual bra… it supports, it lifts, and it actually keeps the girls from flopping around if you run (not that I’m a big runner, unless you count running up and down the steps after M). Also? The Bravado Nursing tank supports up to a size G, so for those of you very “blessed” ladies have no fear – they’ve got you covered too!

Another thing? The color is absolutely gorgeous. I was sent the brand new Twilight Blue color – it’s gorgeous, and can be worn with just about anything!
