The Naked Nursing Tank’s Got You Covered

By Dani Jansen

One of my favourite parts of maternity leave, other than the whole bonding with my kid thing, has been getting to wear jeans on weekdays! I love the versatility of a good pair of jeans. You can dress them up or down. They always have a cool factor. Plus, they can do wonders for your bottom.

But how’s a new mom supposed to enjoy her jeans if she’s nursing and doesn’t want to lift her top up and expose her tummy? Yes, owning some nursing shirts makes life easier, but what if you want to rock something from your pre-baby days? Or you want to buy another Harry Potter themed T-shirt? (I personally think four literary shirts is not enough, thankyouverymuch.)

Enter Naked Tank. These nursing tanks turn any top into a nursing shirt. For those of us with ample bosoms, the Naked Tank is a great alternative to traditional nursing tanks with their skimpy straps and minimal support. With a Naked Tank, you wear your regular nursing bra but still get tummy coverage.

The fabric is lovely and washes well. The tanks also have lots of stretch. I tried the bamboo tank in a large as well as an extra large, and both fit comfortably. They’re both long enough to offer good coverage. The cut is pretty straight, though, so if you have wider hips like me, you might want to size up. There are few things as annoying as pulling your tank down every two minutes because it keeps riding up.

If you’re looking for some cleavage coverage along with your belly coverage, you might want to consider one of Naked’s infinity scarves. I got to try their scarf in coral, and I loved the punch of colour it added to my outfits. The material was also light enough that I didn’t feel like I was suffocating my baby when I used it.

After nine months of breastfeeding, I’m not really shy about taking a boob out in public. However, there are occasions when I think I may run into students, and I want to be able to cover up. They get freaked out enough seeing me outside school—imagine how they’d react if they also saw my nipple. In case I want to spare them the awkwardness, this scarf is easy to throw into the diaper bag.

On a recent trip to visit my parents for Thanksgiving, I was happy to have the Naked Tank. It helped me pack light because it was so incredibly versatile. I can honestly say it’s become a staple of my nursing wardrobe.

    I don’t mind pulling out the boobs if need be, but sometimes the extra layer provided by the Naked Tank is very welcome for warmth and the comfort of those around me!

    I’ve already added a few of these tanks to my baby registry. Our first little one is due in May, and I know I’m going to want to get out of the house. A Naked Nursing Tank would make it easier to wear all the fun summer tops I love and still nurse easily. I love it! Thanks for the tip about the black friday sale!

    this looks awesome, love the tip for people with wider hips 🙂 thank you.

    Oooh I LOVE that the tank is long in length!! I get so super annoyed with tanks that ride up too!

  5. M Hobson

    Love th extra length – my belly gets cold. And with my nursing shirts still sometimes because I don’t want milk all over them 😀

    With a Naked Tank, you wear your regular nursing bra but still get tummy coverage which is nice it keeps your tummy covered being longer too.

    I like the versatility of being able to use my normal nursing bras but have stomach coverage! I have a 7 week old and am a new nursing mama, so this looks amazing!

    I have always wanted to try one of these but wasn’t sure if it was worth it. I’m a bigger mom and I hate exposing myself while nursing (despite what family may think) I may just buy one to try out before my little one weans as she’s almost 2 now

    Tummy coverage – yes! I find it difficult to find good coverage for my large belly.

    Thanks for your review! looks like a great product. I love that it washes well, which is important when baby spits up a lot on my shirt/tank!

    What a great design for nursing mothers….very stylish and practical.

    I had two Naked Nursing Tanks with my first but they were both cotton. I would love to try the bamboo this time around, it sounds like it’s softer and maybe stretchier as well (not that I didn’t love my cotton one). I did love how they were cut extra long so it not only covers your belly but also helps with any awkward pant gaping, etc.

    I love the fact that Dani mentioned you can pack light wvtge naked tank! Seeing as we travel a lot packing light is essential.

  14. Barbara

    I would have loved to have one of these with my first child. I like the longer length and easy to wash features.

    Love that these tanks are stretchy and form fitting! They look look comfy and convenient.. could totally use one! 🙂

    Wish I had gotten one sooner (bebe is 9 months already)! I also relate with you on the awkwardness of running into students—aaa!
