nursing tops (vent)

So I have been trying to find some reasonably pricing nursing tops and it's almost impossible! They are either tanktops/short sleeves (I live in northern Michigan - it's cold!) or crazy expensive. All I want is a few long sleeved tops in my size. I spent a few hours looking and found several that I ordered and then was sent an email they were no longer available. Maybe I'm just too picky! OK - I'm done venting.

Did you check motherhood maternity? I got some from there when I was nursing DS1, 2 or 3 are long sleeve. Honestly though this time around I find myself prefering the tank tops. Target has some cute ones that I have been wearing under a cardigan, otherwise I just wear a plain one under one of my prepregnancy shirts so I can lift my shirt up and my belly is still covered.

I got two from old navy that were a good price, the one is ok but the other is so long and low cut I don't think I will ever wear it. Such a waste even if it was cheap I found that its easiest to just wear a nursing tank under a button down shirt.

This is what I do too. A nursing tank under another shirt. Or a nursing tank under a cardigan works well too.

I think I've resigned myself to using tanks and just layering. I've looked online a lot but just don't really see anything that I like that I think will work. I'd have to drive 4-6 hours to find any stores that actually carry nursing tops which just isn't an option. I ordered a few new nursing tanks so hopefully they should arrive early next week.

You know I just realized that you are fairly 'close' to me, if you ever head 3 hours into Wisconsin let me know Wink Do you go into Green Bay to go shopping or somewhere in Michigan? I think the zoo I'm trying to convince dh to go to is in Marquette, I forgot what it's called but you can feed the baby animals?

Yeah, nursing tanks under shirts. I don't even know how nursing shirts work, lol. They seem complicated. Like you have to pull your boob through a whole and still unhook your nursing bra which just seems complicated, lol. But maybe I'm making it more complicated in my head than it would really be.

I have a few tops from Motherhood, but honestly I like the tanks under another shirt too. I have several from motherhood. The ones with the build in bra I use at night, then the others with just the shelf bra I layer under my clothes and its great. I actually am thinking of getting a few more but would like to find them somewhere other than motherhood since they are pretty expensive imo.

I use nursing cami's under button up or zip up sweaters right now on cool mornings. They are like 16 $$ at target but I'm in SC.

I also mostly do the nursing tanks under something else, but I also bought one of these:
www.tummytankz.com at the end of my pregnancy (wished I had bought it sooner!) and I use it now with a nursing bra (so it is almost like a tank) - keeps everything covered when I lift my shirt.
Never thought I would prefer lifting my shirt to actual nursing tops, but I do now!
