Something that every breastfeeding mama may struggle with is finding both a comfortable and easily way to discreetly nurse/pump.  There are multiple products out there that aim to help in this cause.  I've never been one to use a cover of any sort, I found them impossible to work with during the early weeks, while baby and I were learning to latch.  A friend suggested that I try what she does- wear a tank top and a t-shirt.  It's very easy while you're getting your breast out for baby to latch to just pull up the top layer and pull down the tank top.  However, I have found something better yet and I'm really excited to tell you about it!
Undercover Mama asked me to review their Basic Essentials Nursing Shirt.  I honestly did not know much about the mechanics behind this tank top before I was approached.  I never saw the point to getting a special tank top for breastfeeding, as I have plenty of regular tanks that work great... but the more I learned about this tank, the more I fell in love.
The package came with the shirt, 2 "Thank You for Nursing in Public" cards, a coupon for Shuga Bebe Couture Nursing Pillow and a coupon for Nurse Purse, plus a sweet thank you note!  I felt like I hit the jackpot with all these goodies.
 Undercover Mama suggests to order a size down, but I ordered a size up because I prefer loose fitting clothing.   The very first thing I noticed is it's tagless!  That is something I don't have with most of my tank tops, so I was VERY happy!  No scratchy spot on your back!
The tank is made of 95% high-quality cotton and 5% spandex, and has the perfect stretch. It's a soft jersey type knit, like you'd have with most t-shirts.
There are no straps on this tank, and that's what makes this product so unique and versatile.  With two different options for attaching, you won't have any trouble keeping this shirt right where it needs to be.  There is a traditional metal strap hook, which slides over your bra strap, but there's also a very handy little silicone loop. The silicone loop just slides over the clasp and stays tight so it won't slip off.  I tried it on all 3 of my nursing/pumping bras and it worked great.
With 15 color options, you will find one to match anything in your wardrobe.   Black is a staple for me, and this tank is definitely something I'm going to be wearing all the time.  I am going to order another black one, plus a white and probably a purple!
From XS to XXXL it's almost an absolute you'll find a size that fits you.  Check out the sizing chart HERE.
I think one of the coolest things about this tank top is that you can use it WITHOUT a nursing bra.  You don't have to be lactating to take advantage of the coverage this shirt provides!  It's amazing... There's not a soul who wouldn't enjoy this tank!  Check out my video of how to use this tank with a regular bra!
What's my favorite thing about this product? I love the length.  I feel so confident when I wear it!
Is there anything I'd change about it? Nothing!  This tank is the best of the best!
