Are nursing tanktops supportive enough to be worn alone or do you have to wear a bra with them? (For the record, I'm about a C cup while nursing, if that makes any difference). Can anyone recommend any favorite brands?

I've found that the ones from Target are actually more supportive for me that the Motherhood or Mimi ones that I was using. I'm a DD cup and I found that the "shelf" in the others I had didn't seem to stretch vertically enough for a comfortable fit. I also found that they hold up better to frequent washings. They're nothing fancy, but they're comfortable and fairly smooth worn under outer clothing.

I just went back to Target to get a couple more because I wear them all the time and got tired of washing the couple that I had.  I love the ones from Target and wear them but with and without a bra, depends on where I am goin or if I am staying at home.

I just wear a nursing bra and two tank tops when I go out. The top I pull up and the bottom I pull down to nurse. It keeps me covered without using a blanket (and in the beginning when you may leak it helps to have extra padding).

i hate spending a lot for this stuff.  i am a D cup while feeding.  i got a great nursing tank at Sears for about $20... still seems like a lot... but it can be worn alone.  i think i got a medium and it shrank a little which was to be expected... it actually fit and supported better after shrinking.  only comes in grey and black... but i wasn't into spending $40+ for a MomMat  or other fancy named bra or tank.

I like the ones from target and I am a c cup as well. Bravado makes them too, they are more expensive, but I find they support you more.

I think they are supportive enough. I have some from motherhood and also some from mimi maternity and love them. They are way more comfy than normal nursing bras!

i was a dd cup and wore the motherhood brand without an extra bra.  I also found them at target and they were supportive enough for me.

If you have a good one, you can wear them alone (that's the point of them). I have some from Bummis, I think they are called "glam moms" or something like that. I think La Lache League also sells some on their site (depends where you live).
