What have you bought?
Where did you get items from?
Any recommendations for nursing friendly clothes that aren't labeled nursing?
I hate shopping so much I'll pretty much give up before I even get started.
I have a few spaghetti straps that are easy to pull down or up, which is my normal summer wear anyways, and a few sun and maxi dresses that will be okay for the first month or so pp but I'm really at a loss as to where to look. I'm not paying $25+ for a shirt and I can't seem to find anything online or in stores that doesn't seem outrageously priced. Maybe I'm just cheap?
I tend to like a tank top. I was able to find a nursing one for like $10 at Macy's. I think Target also sells them online. Regular ones work as well. You just do not want anything that zips up the back (like a dress).
i have a couple nursing tops i bought at target ($20 each) and that was a bit high for me lol. otherwise, i just buy looser fitting shirts/tanks. i have a cover up from when i had my son so even if i dont have a nursing friendly top on i can still cover myself. you could always check amvets or goodwill (i bought a few maternity items there and just some regular oversized t's)
I think I said this before in another thread but I mostly just use V neck tshirts or tank tops (and no I don't usually use a nursing bra either). It seems to be the easiest most convenient way to nurse, whether at home or out. Pretty much any shirt where exposing your breast isnt going to stretch the fabric TOO much is a great nursing shirt!

I purchased a couple of camis with the built in bra support from Target. Unlike most tank tops, the support piece in these seem more supportive than most. I have a couple of nursing bras, but I hate them. They just don't fit right. I ended up buying (also from Target) a bra made by Bali that is very stretchy and doesn't have an underwire. I think I may buy a couple more of those.
I have a few nursing tanks from target but I think nursing bras are pointless until you have huge boobs & it necessary bc really you put a nursing bra on but ten a normal shirt and ten it defeats the purpose.
Anyway I bought a few maxi dresses that are v neck i can just pull my boob out of. I wait for them to go on sale like with targets daily deals bc I am REALLY cheap!
Here are a few I like. Target.com : Furniture, Baby, Electronics, Toys Merona® Women's V-Neck Ruffle Maxi Dress - A... : Target I have this one in 2 different colors)
I went shopping recently for cute new spring/summer clothes that are nursing friendly. I bought some button up sleeveless blouses, I also got lots of tank tops in all kinds of fun colors you know the ones with really thin straps that you usually wear as camisoles under sheer shirts, because those are so easy to just take off one strap and pull a boob out lol, the only thing I got was nursing bras, I got some great ones at Target i Definitely recommend them. I can only find the link to one of them, I dont see the other one online but it's from the same brand. I won't buy nursing tanks, they're too expensive for it just being a tank top.
