Nursing vest (without built-in support)?

Can anyone recommend a nursing vest that doesn't have a built-in bra/built-in support? I've spent a small fortune on maternity/nursing bras which are so comfy, so I don't want the extra support bit in the vest!

H&M have the bra bit. I'm looking online and the Next ones look possible? It's not clear though!

I got some from mothercare - basic, clips on the straps, no support.

Mothercare have plain vests with just the clips and longer straps. They are nice and long too.

Brilliant, thank you! (Why didn't I think of mothercare?!) x

If you're wearing a nursing bra, you don't really need a nursing vest. Just buy a normal vest with stretchy straps and pull the neckline of the vest down below the bra on one side when you want to feed. Otherwise it's a faff having to undo two sets of clips!!

Agree with BananaPie, I wouldn't bother with nursing tops. I'm just living in vests, sometimes two so I can pull one up and one down...

Or just a boob tube underneath. (Other than plain old vest). You don't need nursing tops when you have a nursing bra.

I agree that they're unnecessary unless you want to wear only a vest. Even then you can hoick them under.

H&M do thin strapped slim fit long length vests that have seen me through 10 months of bf. I've got lots of different colours and wear then under looser tops, then pull the best down and the top up for bf.

I use breastvest tops. They stop below the bra line.

I like the breastvest too, really comfortable.

I hav a couple of nursing vests and also do the vest and top combo.

I have a faffy feeder, he is difficult to latch on and in the early days just unclipping was easier than pulling a vest down and a top up then trying to see what was going on when the top slipped down.

I would go with both! when im out I prefer two tops as its easier to feed more discretely but at home a feeding vest and bra is easier to feed in.
