A to Z Challenge: N is for Nursing Tanks (Things We Love)

N is for Nursing Tanks. They saved my life after W was born and are one of the things we (or I) love and probably couldn't do without! Before W was born, I purchased a cheap nursing bra and two nursing tanks at Target. They were affordable and I couldn't bring myself to spend a lot of money buying some of the more expensive brands I'd found on the internet. It was getting closer and closer to the due date and I knew I needed something because I planned to wear some black yoga pants and a nursing tank home from the birthing center.

I enjoy shopping at Target and when I found some nursing tanks on the rack, I figured they would be as good as any and they were only $16.99 each which was definitely better than some of the prices I'd found online for other brands. I ended up purchasing two Gilligan & O'Malley® Womens Full Sling Long Nursing Tanks. I got one in black and one in a heather gray.

They are full sling which worked fine for me when we were working on breastfeeding and worked even better when I was exclusively pumping. I am 5'8" and the length was great for me. I prefer longer shirts and these were long enough not to ride up. I ended up picking up one more gray one after W was born because I was wearing them every day. They were my uniform when I was home with my little guy -- convenient and comfortable!

I bought them in size medium when I normally wear shirts in smalls and mediums so the sizing was fine for me. They have also held up well through over 4 months of washing! They were easy to open and close and I love how covered my stomach was when pumping or nursing and wearing the tanks. I still sleep in them at night to give me a little support throughout the night and I think they will probably fit even with a pregnant belly so I plan to try them out next time I'm pregnant!

If you're looking for an affordable and comfortably nursing tank, I would definitely recommend these! There's no need to spend $30 or more when Target has these and you can get them in a variety of colors and styles!
