As I slowly begin to prepare for our daugher's arrival, I've been gathering things that I need/want either from friends or by looking out for good sales. One item that I've been thinking of buying are nursing tops to cover my "side fat" when nursing. I didn't use nursing tops with my son because my "side fat" problem wasn't as bad as it is now so my bebe au lait nursing cover was sufficient.
The only problem with nursing tops is that they are expensive and they look ugly. I don't want to get too many but I also don't want to wear the same thing over and over again. So anyway, I just found a great and cheap solution to this problem. In the men's section, they have summer tank tops or undershirts (aka wife-beater tanks) with wide arm holes. I just discovered that these can be worn between your nursing bra and regular top and when you need to nurse, you simply lift your regular top up, move the arm hole to reveal your breast and voila!, you get unobstructed access to the boob while "side fat" is completely covered.
I just bought a 3-pack of Hane's men's tanks today at Wal-Mart for $9 and it totally works. I'm going to tell all my breastfeeding friends.
