Lexus recently produced a motherfucking hover board and I still have to wear shitty nursing tanks like this?
Seriously, there’s got to be an engineer or something out there that is nursing or watching someone nursing their baby and seeing the piss poor way we’re forced to wear th stupidest clothes so that we can quickly whip out the tit for the baby. Do you see the way that “support” piece is just hanging out, drawing your eye to my armpit?
This is not what I want my shirt to do.
I can barely find a REGULAR bra that fits my giant boobs comfortably, so we’re not even going to discuss the hilarious lack of nursing bras that are available to an endowed nursing mother.
These shitty (but affordable) nursing tanks came from Target, which is pretty much my only option for new, affordable maternity clothes in Athens, Georgia. (We haven’t shopped at WalMart in over three years)
I honestly don’t care so much about being modest when I’m nursing my kid. If I can be modest, I am, but I’m also not going to nurse my baby in a public bathroom or something when he’s thrashing and fussing with my boob just hanging out like, “Sup?” These tanks offer nothing in terms of modesty, but are great when layered under a cute top. I can tuck them into my pants and just lift the cute shirt up, unclip the tit flap and nurse fairly discreetly.
But when I’m engorged (which happens sometimes, thankfully not nearly as often as it did with my first kid), the support strap just kind of presses into the side of my boob. This can lead to sore spots, plugged milk ducts and, in the worst cases, breast infections. But also, it’s fucking ridiculous looking.
So, yeah… This is where I’m at right now.
