This review was performed and written by Kristen, DDL Contributor, for the New Baby Event.
From the website: The Glamourmom® Nursing Bra Tank was born in 2000 about two months after I began nursing my first daughter. I had desperately searched for a nursing top that provided full support, easy access to my breasts and discretion for my post-partum belly, which I could then wear beneath my pre-pregnancy shirts as my shape returned,. Finding nothing, out of frustration I designed what did not yet exist on the market, a tank top with a built-in nursing bra. I just loved it, and so did many new mothers around the world.
The Glamourmom Nursing tank top has quickly become a staple of my wardrobe. In fact, I may need more of them! I had the opportunity to review the full bust style nursing tank top (which is available up to a size J cup). It is great because there is an actual built in bra that allows you to adjust the tightness under your bust, just like a normal bra. Also, you can adjust the straps, which helps to make it more supportive than most tank tops with built in bras and the full bust style also has a wider strap for extra comfort and support. The hook closure is really easy to clasp and unclasp one handed, which is a plus. The tank top itself is longer than most, which was great because I could use it right after I gave birth and still had a belly and I knew it was still going to cover my belly.
I have used this Glamourmom Nursing tank top many times in the few weeks that I have had my daughter and have been happy with the quality of the material, the design of the built in bra and ease of the top for nursing. When you unclasp to nurse, there is still a little fabric on either side of your breast, which provides you with a little more coverage if you are nursing in public. This is great but I wish the opening was a little larger, as I need to sometimes reposition my boob so the nipple is sticking out and my daughter can latch. In my experience with this tank, it seems that if you are bordering one size and another, I would recommend choosing the larger size, as I was bordering sizes and chose the smaller size and found that it was too small. The one thing that I also noticed is that the full bust style tanks have rouching between the breasts (the other nursing tanks do not have the rouching), which makes it more cute if you are wearing it alone. I was worried about the rouching showing though because I mainly use this tank for layering underneath something else. I have found that you really don’t notice the rouching under other clothes though so it’s not much of an issue.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Glamourmom Nursing Tanks and think that the Full Bust style is a great tank and provides good support to those with larger breasts (mine are a 36D before pregnancy and probably a 38D or 38DD while nursing). I don’t feel like I’m unsupported, and I am someone who always likes my girls to be supported so that’s says a lot. However, you do sort of end up with a slight uni-boob look, although it’s not as pronounced as I have seen with other nursing tanks. So…great top for nursing, good design and quality and totally worth the money because you will find that it will definitely become a staple of your wardrobe as well!
