You know those things they sell... like a belly wrap to help disguise maternity pants, and also to use while nursing?

I wanna make one, anyone attempt one!?

what about using tubular knit, that way it's already round for you and then just cut it to length. zig zag around edges or serge edges.

What about taking a snug fitting tank top and cutting the top/straps off? You wouldn't even have to hem if you didn't want. No sew, minimal measuring.

That is a great idea! I'm sure I will have plenty of snug fitting tanks.

I did something similar to this. I got tanks with adjustable straps and made them as long as they would go. I just tucked the neck of the tank beneath my breasts, and wha la, lots of coverage. This was also really great for NIP too!
