So I'm a little self concious about my stomach and it makes nursing in public awkward for me. I found these things that attach to your nursing bra and make it a full length tank to keep your stomach covered. Has anyone uses these? Are they worth it? Or if you just use a tank to pull down what kind did you get and where? I can't find one stretchy enough to go down without having to completely take down the strap and shirt.

Nursing tanks are fabulous - there are also actual normal shirts made for nursing, too. Check out something like Motherhood, they have some decent options.

I got nursing tanks online from Walmart, and I wore one under everything.

I bought a bunch of nursing tanks from Target. They have plain solid colors and some with a little lace across the top. I loved/lived in them!

Oh I have regular nursing shirts. I want them for the times I wear a regular shirt. And are they tanks that have the built in bra or just like a regular tank? I need to wear a bra cause I'm rather large breasted, and I don't want to have to unclip a bunch of stuff to get the b**b.

They're a waste of money IMO. I just use a regular tank and then when I nurse in public, the tank comes down and the shirt comes up. I just use regular Aeropsotale tanks, because they have super stretchy straps (and there was a HUGE sale- 5 tanks for $15 :D).

I didn't think they were a waste AT ALL.

OH. I'm wearing a long cami tank from Charlotte Russe and I very easily just pulled it down, it would probably be great for covering the tummy & nursing! They're also super cheap.

Hmmm do you know the material? Or do they have a website I can order from? We don't have a Charlotte Russe by us.
