Nursing in the winter kind of sucks. Unlike the warmer weather, when one great nursing top will get you through the day, dressing for cold weather while also worrying about how to get access to your breasts on short notice is a pain. Careful layering is usually the best option, but even so, access can be difficult when you are wearing three or four layers.
I like Bun Maternity’s new Nursing Tank Top for exactly this reason–it is the perfect layering piece and the access is easy and predictable, regardless of what you have on over the top. The Bun Maternity Nursing Tank has a double snap at both shoulders, which allows the top panel of the shirt to be dropped and then a second panel to be lifted for access. Because the access is so easy and there is no need to rearrange your clothing for access, you can easily keep your sweater/coat/sweatshirt on while nursing. The tops are also cut long, a crucial element for nursing tops when you are still wearing your maternity jeans.
Santa Monica-based Bun Maternity is a new entrant into the nursing wear market and nursing tanks are all they do–and they do them well and conscientiously. The cotton is high-quality and sourced in the USA, and proceeds of all sales of Bun Maternity tanks go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The colors are also fun, ranging from the basic black and white to vivid patterns. You can shop Bun in the line’s online shop, with all tanks priced at USD $45.
