A maternity tank top is so versatile; that’s why there are dozens in new moms’ wardrobes no matter the season. They’re comfy, easy to put on and take off, can be used as part of a layered look or even by themselves depending on the weather and many if not most are convenient for nursing mamas too. If you’re looking for the best maternity tank top, take a peek at our faves.


When you think ‘tank top’ you may think of summer and those amazing pieces of clothing that keep us cool by letting us uncover a bit and grab some sun (and breeze)! When you’re pregnant, however, life changes quite a bit and clothing doesn’t seem to go by seasons as much anymore as it does comfortability and need (although we love those criteria in every season). Tank tops can be used (and are!) in any season—many mamas love maternity tank tops in fall and winter because they’re growing a human and still often feel like it’s one million degrees outside no matter the temperature.

Additionally, maternity tank tops are perfect as a stand-alone shirt or as layer pieces to complete an outfit or just make nursing a bit easier. That’s right—many of the best maternity tank tops are those that allow for mamas to nurse with little effort in shirt finagling—which is never really fun in general but particularly not when you have a little mouth who is ready to eat right then.

And while many moms don’t really branch out into too many maternity clothes and instead just make regular clothes work, the truth is that you’ll stretch everything out to the point that you may not be able to wear it again after you’re no longer pregnant. Even more, as we said, maternity tank tops often have options for nursing moms, making them versatile for before and after baby comes, and they often have stretch and support panels or other design features that your average tank top won’t.No, we believe maternity tank tops are a must-have staple for pregnant and nursing mamas, but we also know finding the best maternity tank tops may be tough. That’s why we’ve scoped our mama forums out and found the best maternity tank tops you can find—you don’t need any more guessing work, do you?

What To Look For In The Best Maternity Tank Tops
When it comes to finding the best maternity tank top, it shouldn’t be much different than looking for any other piece of clothing, with the exception being that there are a few more things you’ll want to ensure your clothing has. Maternity clothing in general should always be comfy and lightweight, as pregnancy often has women feeling warmer than they typically do. Remember, there’s always layering, and that’s the perfect reason you’ll want to have a few maternity tank tops in your wardrobe from which to choose.

Look for materials that are flexible and feel good to you but also ensure they’re not super confining where you don’t want them to be. One exception with maternity tank tops is that many have extra support in the belly, which may make them your favorite thing to wear every day of the week. We always love organic cottons as they’re typically the most breathable pieces of clothing out there, but whatever material you end up with, be sure that it will wash well and dry well too. You’ll likely be wearing your maternity tank tops pretty often so washability and drying features are important. You’ll want to pick a maternity tank top that matches your style.

There are some that still help show off what your mama gave you (and why not since the ‘girls’ are looking great these days!), but if you’re not looking to do that (and that’s okay too!), there are others that give a little more neck/chestline coverage. Many mamas often buy maternity tank tops in solid colors for layering and versatility but if you find that one you love and there are different patterns from which you can choose, you may find your new favorite top!

As you can imagine, there are tons of different maternity tank tops from which you can choose—you just have to know what you like and give them a shot. Here are our faves.
