So I am thinking of splurging on nursing clothes this time! I have bought a few nursing tanks in the past but really didn't like them and I hate nursing bras, they just don't fit me right. I like to buy front closure bras which work well for nursing. I see motherhood maternity has buy 3 tops gets the 4th free which is still pretty expensive but was wondering if any of you ladies have tried any? Some look pretty comfy and loose in the belly area which is good for post-partum bellies.
Here's what I am looking at
Sleeveless Pull Down Nursing Tank | Motherhood Maternity Nursing Wear
I was going to ask what u all wear for nursing bras cause all the ones I've seen look hideous, ancient or granny like with thick straps. Last time I just bought regular bras from la Senza that undo in front & used them too. A friend of mine also recommended the nursing tanks from Target, only one more week till they open in Canada!
I haven't bought any from maternity stores cause I'm cheep. I just bought a bunch of tops from old navy and bought one size up but I didn't pay more than $5 for any.

Oh is yours opening in a week? I think ours is further off on that. I hope it has the nursing tanks when it does open! I still have some from when DD was little. These are the ones:
Gilligan & OMalley? Womens Side Sling Nursing Ca... : Target
I think my nursing bras are from Thyme Maternity. They aren't sexy but who's trying to be sexy with those rockets on your chest. I just wish the fabric was thicker so they hide the outline of the nursing pads better.
oooh, I like this too! I might need to look for this when I'm in the US next week!
Gilligan & O'Malley? Women's Nursing Sleep Cami ... : Target
You don't have Target in Canada?!?!? Wow... you will soon find out what you've been missing out on! Target is my favorite store. I will definitely have to check out some nursing clothes there. I agree that some regular tanks could work as nursing wear too.
I have noticed some of motherhoods clothes are kinda cheaply made but is incredibly expensive. Doesn't make sense!
Nope, no Target in Canada...YET. Target bought our Zellers stores though and liquidated them. They are in renovations right now and then they will be Target. I'm SO excited. Target is my guilty pleasure in the US. I've seen plenty of US stores come to Canada and it never works out how we hope. The prices are never as good and the selection isn't the same. I hope that our Target gets the same products. I mean, I'd pay $5 more on a $20 tank top if it means getting it in town...but...well...we'll see.
As for normal tanks, I'm not a fan of fiddling with them. I really liked the nursing specific ones.
When DD was born I got some nursing PJs from Thyme and they sucked. They didn't stay closed when you were sleeping so you'd get cold. Also, they didn't have a shelf so you couldn't wear nursing pads...so you'd just leak everywhere. They SEEMED good at the time, but I ended up just wearing a nursing tank to bed most of the time.
ooooh, I just saw these Milkstars nursing shirts on the babysteals archives. I hope they get them again. I love how they look like a normal shirt but are a nursing one under.
