Glamourmom Nursing Bra Tank Review

          I recently had the privilege of trying out a Glamourmom nursing tank. Line Rothman, the creator of Glamourmom, was very nice and helped me choose a product to try since I've never used her brand before. She selected and sent me the Glamourmom Nursing Bra Full Bust Long Top in size medium because I'm in my third trimester of pregnancy and am a 38D bra size and needed extra coverage both up top and for my huge pregnant belly. I received the tank top free of charge but did not receive any monetary compensation for this review. All opinions in this review are my own and based on my experience with the nursing tank.

          I will start by saying that I am not a fan of tank tops with shelf bras attached and tend to avoid those but I had never tried a nursing tank before. The Glamourmom nursing tank had a built in full nursing bra instead of a shelf bra. It has nursing bra straps for easy breastfeeding and can be adjusted at the band to accommodate changing sizes. Although I tend to find built in bras uncomfortable, I found the Glamour Mom Nursing Bra Full Bust Long Top to be completely comfortable once I adjusted the band. I can wear it for hours with no discomfort. I also usually shy away from cotton bras with no padding because of nipple visibility but have not had this problem with this top as the fabric is thick. The top also has a mesh lining on the inside to hold nursing pads in place. I tried it with my thick BabyKicks nursing pads and found that they stayed in place and did not show at all through the shirt.  This tank gives me just enough coverage in the chest area and also fits very well over my almost 39 week pregnant belly.

          Overall, I had a good experience with the Glamourmom Nursing Bra Full Bust Long Top and love wearing it. I am not sure how it will fit once the baby is born and I no longer have a huge belly but it is designed to be long so it will cover your postpartum belly so I will hopefully get lots of use out of it. This tank top comes in many colors and can be purchased at glamourmom.com for $49. They have many other tops to choose from as well as bras, pajamas, and even a nursing bathing suit. I cannot wait to try some of their other products and recommend that other nursing or pregnant moms try them out as well.
