Whether you want a few super practical everyday nursing tank tops to wear and tear and throw away or a top quality one that will last for this baby and the next you’ll find our top recommendations here.
When you pick your nursing top, make sure that it is:
- Machine-washable (and preferably tumble-dry)
- NOT transparent or with too thin fabrics
- Not too tight
- In light colors or patterns if you plan to use it somewhere where you don’t feel like showing up spit ups too clearly
- Easy to use for breastfeeding (obviously), and
- Works well together with your nursing bra – or as a nursing bra, with enough support, if the tank top has a built-in nursing bra
- Covers your post-pregnancy belly if you want it to. (Who doesn’t..?)
Tips on Some Great Nursing Tank Tops
Here are our favorite picks at the moment!
Undercover Mama Nursing Tank
It functions as an undershirt with a very smart invention; a clip that can be attached to the nursing bra. So when you open the nursing bra flap, you open this tank top also, but really only over the breast. So your belly, back, and sides are still completely covered by the top.
Leading Lady Women’s Empire Waist Nursing Cami with Lace BackThis nursing tank is very nice, and a bit unusual in its design. It won’t show of any baby fat by accident… One drawback – it is NOT machine washable – but having one TOP that needs hand washing sould be OK, don’t you think?
The material is soft and high quality and it is still very affordable.
Glamourmom Nursing Bra Full Bust Long Top
Another Glamourmom quality tank top that comes in a few different colors. This one is designed to provide extra breast support for those who need it. The material is thick enough to hide your breast pads and high quality enough to survive machine washing many times. The top is also created long, to hide your tummy. A great choice!
Bella Materna Women’s Anytime Nursing Cami
Here’s a really nice and quite expensive nursing tank top, that you can definitely use as it is. The only thing it doesn’t do is to keep your boobs hidden while you breastfeed. But it is a top quality top!
Bravado! Maternity Nursing Tanks
This top comes with a built in bra, which actually support the breasts.
The material is also quite thick, so it hides nursing pads pretty well (although not so well if you buy a white top). However, the top is quite revealing, so you might need to find a private place for nursing…
So, these where my five favorite nursing tank tops at the moment. Most of them are machine washable and all of them are high quality and nice fitting. I also like it when the material is relatively thick – so that nursing pads are invisible.
