Do anyone have experience with a variety of nursing tanks? I'm trying to find one that is long enough to cover my postpartum belly. I'm 5'8" and every tank I've tried has been too short! Before I spend any more $$ I thought I'd see if one brand is longer than the other. I see that glamourmom has a new maternity tank which would probably work since it's made longer to cover a preggo belly, but it has that tricky, 2-hand clasp and I really want to stick with the easy, 1 handed clasp. Any advice? Thanks ladies!

The motherwear is pretty long and stretchy. They are so cute too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Motherhood and glamourmom both make a nursing bra dress. The motherhood one is only $20 so I got that, washed and dried in hot a few times, then cut it off to a long tank length and hemmed it up. Works great. The only thing is that it seems to run a little big and only comes in black (I think the glamourmom one comes in red too, but it is pretty spendy)

Thanks for all your responses...what's a belly tube?

You know, Blue Canoe has a few tops that have the Jane's Bra built into them. So it's like a Jane's, but with a long flowy bit beneath. BC is pricey, but OMG, the soft organic cotton is heavenly. (And actually, the GlamourMom is pretty expensive too, but mine have been way less durable than I'd expect!)

I'm 5'10 and have the same issue. I want to try a GlamourMom... but scared to spend that $$ and it not fit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Plus... will it shrink after a wash?<br><br>
