Can anyone point me in the right direction? All I can find are clingy fabrics and t-shirt shaped, guaranteed to make my post c-section body look revolting. Have any of you found a breastfeeding top that is floaty and forgiving?

Oooh, can't help but watching with interest! I was given a blooming marvelous one by a friend which I'll be living in using again this time round, but I've been looking since then and not found much.

The one I have has a kind of extra panel from shoulders down to waist level, that lifts up, and there are vertical slits to give you access through to your feeding bra, and it all hangs nice and loose, but is quite flattering too at the same time.

If anyone knows where I can get similar again, please tell!! smile

Oooh, I totally agree.

SOrry, I never found a decent one but had some hideous ones from H and M that clung to every bulge.

Kind of like this one, but with long sleeves - I have winter babies!

the bamboo ones here are quite loose - longer and looser than the cotton.

I used some everyday tops which were a bit maternity like. A V at the boob, a hem under the boob and then flared out. Some of them I can lift up and they drape over baby and belly or others i lift boob out so belly is covered.

BF tops are awful tho and impossible to get in size 20ish

I have those hideous H& M ones too currymaid, I can only imagine that the designers have never had children. The bamboo one looks ok, thanks amidaiwish but that one looks clingy to me Sparkly unless in a huge size- I have been deceived by skinny models before!

I bought some tops made by Bara Glad (they sell them on the Mama Cocoon web site) and they are nice (also post CS body and feeling fat and frumpy!)

The Bara Glad tunics look nice, thanks redtabby I haven't seen those before. I have ordered, fingers crossed.
