I was wondering if any of you ever ordered nursing tops from any of the online websites. I'm looking for some nursing tops for summer. I've found a lot on clearance online, but want to make sure it's a reputable company.

I did buy some colored tank tops from old navy (I got them to sleep in) but they have a second layer under the top half of the front so you can access your boobs without lifting up an entire shirt, and you don't have to layer multiple shirts that way. They are pretty thin fabric, but that might be what you're looking for for summer anyway. Plus, they're not skin tight like the other nursing tanks that have a shelf bra inside (I was always self-conscious about my tummy, so I don't like the skin tight ones). It doesn't have a built in bra, so you'd have to wear a nursing bra under. I think they were like $5 a piece when I bought them. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the post. This is actually my second baby. I nursed my first for 18 months (when I got pregnant with baby #2). I really didn't nurse out and about with the first, but am hoping to do so more with this baby (especially with an active toddler who will not want to sit around home all summer while the baby is eating every 2 hours). I was just looking for some nice nursing tank/summer shirts so that I won't have to have an extra layer on when we're out in the warm weather. I found nursing itself warm enough! I've only seen plain black, white and grey nursing tanks in the stores and want something a little nicer. The prices in the store (Motherhood Maternity) are sooo expensive!

The only one's I've ever bought were from Old Navy,from the Maternity section of their site. They work fairly well. I've always just worn normal shirts and pulled it up to feed. If you want your tummy to stay covered you can wear a tank top underneath that you can pull down (or a nursing tank) underneath, and pull the top shirt up and that way your covered, except for the boob you want to feed from! :) I thought I'd need nursing shirts too before my son was born (he's now 22 months and still nursing) but in the early days I just wore a nightgown all around the house and left it unbuttoned (I was feeding every hour and half for an hour long) and then when I started going out I did the nursing tank plus another shirt thing. Hope that helps!! Good luck to you!
