Did you decide you want to buy a nursing tank top? They’re an excellent investment for breastfeeding moms and will make your life easier. If you’re looking at all of your choices, you also need to know what to look for when buying a nursing tank top.
What to Look for When Buying a Nursing Tanks
First, you want to look at all of the different types of nursing tanks and the purpose that they serve. You want something that works for you.
Will the design make it easy for you to breastfeed your baby in public or at home? Does it have a supportive shelf that keeps your breasts where they need to be?
Something that is a huge deciding factor for you is the material of the tank top. You can find some that are cotton based and some that are made of bamboo charcoal.
Most tanks come with some percentage of spandex or other materials such as nylon. It adds the necessary stretch that you need to wear over your pregnancy belly and your growing breasts. Nylon is ideal for active mothers who might be exercising or running yet still nursing their baby.
You want to make sure that you like the design of the tank; you’re going to be the one wearing it! Some are solid colors, while others have floral or cute designs that make them capable of being worn out when you leave the house.
Some tank tops cannot be washed with your other clothing. If you’re like me and refuse to wash different cycles or clothes separately, make sure you pay attention.
Sizes and Length Available
Last but not least, look at the sizes and lengths available in the tops. You want to make sure they have your size available, but if you’re tall as I am, then be sure they have long lengths available.
It’s essential to read the reviews.
Not all clothing fits the way that the description says, so following the reviews lets you see what most mothers notice about the fit. It can help you pick the right size the first time.
Give Them a Try
Now that you know what to look for when you’re buying a nursing tank top, making your final decision should be easy. Be sure to buy one and try it one before deciding to purchase several of the same styles.
