Hi all, I can't do the nursing tank deals. My boobs don't line up in them right. I've tried many of them.

What I'm looking for is a tank top that holds your tummy in, but is looser at the breasts? I tried a tank on at macy's and it was awesome. It held my whole gut in, but it was tight at the breasts and I was afraid it would hurt my milk supply. I will still wear my bra underneath.

Any suggestions??

It won't help hold the tummy in but the 'sling' style nursing tanks are available on Target.com. They also have the conventional type with the two 'peek a boo' holes as I call them.

I've been wearing a plain, stretchy camisol tank. I stretch it down so that it sits beneath my breasts and wear my nursing bra as normal. It's not perfect, but it does the trick.

I suspect most non-nursing tanks with tummy control will also be pretty constructed up top.

Glamourmom is coming out with a tummy-control tank though.


What do you mean your boobs don't line up right? FWIW I don't use those silly little nipple holes in my Glamourmom tank - I just push the mesh under my boob and pop the whole thing out so DD can get a good mouthful.

Not a tank top, but I have used those pregnancy belly bands like that. Then I can pull my shirt up, but my belly is still covered (and kept in).
