When I was pregnant with my first I spent a good amount of time trying to find some nursing clothes that I liked. I bought a few PJs/nightgowns and a couple of shirts with plans to buy more. After a few weeks though, I decided they weren't worth it.<br>
Does anyone really prefer to wear nursing specific clothing? Have any favorite items? I found it easier to lift my shirt up then to try and find the special boobie openings in the layered shirts.

I only bought one nursing shirt. I found it tricky and hot! Definitely not worth the money. I just lifted my shirt. Thank goodness for nursing bras though...

I bought a few, they stunk... I found them too complicated, it would take to much time to try and figure out where to pull your breast thru, not good with a hungry baby who was hollering...<br><br>
I found, v-neck shirts were great.. I just pulled my breast thru the top... Although unless you are wearing it with a jacket or cardigan, you may/ or may not want to do this in public.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I LOVED the nursing tank tops I found @ Target. I wore them under everything. They were hot sometimes, but DS was born in December, so it wasn't too hot. It'll be different in September, I'm sure!<br><br>
What I liked about them was that they kept my fat blob belly from hanging out on the side or from behind me at really public places like the mall, etc. I really loved them and look forward to using them again, maybe this time, no shirt over the top b/c it'll be so much hotter! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I liked nursing camisoles that I could wear under an unbuttoned shirt. It took the place of my bra and was easy in the early days.<br><br>
Now that I have a nursing toddler and no longer have to wear a bra to bed (to hold the nursing pads in place) I like nursing pjs. My PajamaGram ones are the best. They don't have buttons or snaps, and they kept me warm this winter when I nursed at night (pulling up my shirt gets chilly)...

I use mens undershirts (wife beaters) under my shirt. I can easily pull up my shirt and have plenty of loose coverage still covering me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The arm holes are big enough to just pop my breast through<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> They are much cheaper then nursing tanks or camisoles, plus I have enough belly that tanks and camisoles tend to ride up.<br><br>
The only issue I have is when I am wearing dd, especially in a MT which is my preferred, it is a pain to get my shirt up through the straps. I may try to find a couple of simple nursing shirts this time round for days when I am out and about babywearing.

jmhammond- I'll have to check out nursing tanks at Target. I must be looking in the wrong area as I never see any of the nursing gear I hear others talk about buying there.
