I am searching for a nursing tank top with a full, supportive bra, preferably with lining/padding to prevent, ahem, show-through. The only one I have come across so far is the Bravado tank, but it seems so low-cut. All of the models in the pictures I've seen seem to be showing a lot of cleavage. I want something I can wear out in public and still feel decent in.<br><br>
Any recommendations?

The Glamourmom is more modest than the Bravado. It's maybe not *quite* as supportive but pretty close. They have a 'full-bust' model now that looks very supportive (I only have the regular nursing top).

I actually really like both of them but I find Bravado has the best support and avoids the "uniboob" effect.<br>
It is low cut but it was a moot point for me. YMMV, but I never wore it as a stand-alone top outside the house because the adjustable straps read "lingerie" to me and I'd rather not walk around in my underwear.The other thing is that the whole breast is exposed when the flap is down.<br>
I layered it with a tee or tank the same colour so I could pull up the outer one and still have tummy and chest coverage.

I have had similar troubles finding a supportive tank and also run into the tanks not being long enough or discreet enough to wear in public. I found this that works great for layering <a href="http://undercovermama.com/" target="_blank">http://undercovermama.com/</a>

mama w/two-wow that looks like a great idea. How thick would you describe the material of the undercover mama? (I live in a hot state). Is the material breathable?<br><br>
Thanks so much!

I thought the Bravado ones give the Uniboob effect vs the Glamourmom tanks, the white tanks are always going to be more sheer. The color tanks from Glamourmom tend to be a lot heavier in weight so nothing really shows through. They also have the tanks where they have the flushed straps so they don't give the "lingerie" feel.<br><br>
Good luck on your search!

The Patricia offered by LLLI is the only nursing tank I've found with a real bra. The cups are the molded foam and the top is sold by bra size. I've got the teal. <a href="http://www.mothersboutique.com/moldedtank.html" target="_blank">http://www.mothersboutique.com/moldedtank.html</a>

That is a great looking tank.<br><br>
I am very assymetrical, so even while nursing I use a chicken cutlet in one side of my bra... shelf bras are NOT an option.

It's a jersey knit cotton. I love mine, have two, and will be buying more as soon as the local store gets another shipment in (they keep selling out). Also, if I'm lucky enough to be blessed with another babe, it is long enough that I could continue using it through most of the pregnancy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Yes! It actually has an adjustable band (like a real bra!) in the back. I don't have one, but I really want one. They're just so spendy.

For those with the Undercover Mama--is it that much better than a stretchy cami that you just pull down and wear under a normal shirt? The UC-Mamas look nice, but I'm not sure if I can justify the money right now. Although they *are* having a mother's day sale...
