I KNOW there was a thread about this just last week, and I CAN'T find it.

What are the different brands of the tube top style thing that just covers your belly for NIP?

Two main commercial ones are the Bella Band and the Belly hugger!
I just bought a $5 tube top and wear it below the bra. Cheap, easy and easy to find at this time of year (on sale).

i just wear any old lower cut stretchy tank top under another shirt and pop my boob out the top. it works really well, especially cool b/c layering tanks seems to be in style this summer. never thought i'd actually be in style.
this is much cheaper than anything else i've seen, esp. if you already have the tank tops. i also do it with a nursing tank top under another shirt. works the same way except you just pull your shirt up and unhook the clasp. target has them for about 15 bucks.

I usually just wear the tank-tops with the built in bra's. It has worked out nicely for me for many, many years now.
Well, living in FL makes wearing a whole tanktop under another shirt impossible unless I want heat stroke. I thought maybe the tube thing would be covering a small enough portion of my body that I wouldn't get too hot.

As for the nursing tanks- I LOVE THEM, however I find that no matter what brand I buy they are only appropriate for in home use (unless I am particularly not caring about my appearance on a day). The motherwear ones strech the wrong way and look frumpy, the target ones are too . . .I don't know. . .I'm too big
: to wear those in public- I have parts of me squished out everywhere. Those are the only two kinds I own (I suppose it would be worth my while to check out other brands). What are your experiences with the other brands out there?

So, where are tube tops sold in stores? It seems silly to ask, but I really don't know where to look. I haven't seen one in ages.

I do have a particularly crafty friend insisting that we can make them. . .I'll probably go that route

This time of year you can find them everywhere that you can buy t-shirts! I don't know US stores all that well but Wal-Mart (though I'm not a fan) would carry them.

I often wear the tank tops with shelf bras under another tanktop. I use the ones I got from Old Navy.

I wear one of these under one of these. I have the maternity ones because I bought them while pregnant. I don't notice it being too hot or anything and I'm in Southwest Florida. And, you can usually find shelf bra tanks for pretty cheap. Not only that, you can wear them without something covering them if you're around the house.
