Sorry Bessie have never seen any! Always seem to be plain looking cross over tops. I wear long vests under my normal clothes tbh. I live in jeans too with nice non bf top of some sort and a long plain topshop vest underneath to hide tummy whilst feeding. Sorry not much use to you. I was going to start a thread re nice bf bras! Mine are all ready for the bin. Had a look in marks and Spencer but pretty uninspiring. Any top tips where to buy nice ones?
Sorry Bessie, I also never found any, I just used to pop DD up my top and drape something over me (like a muslin or blanket) if needed. The ones I saw were still hideous and very expensive. I don't want to wear something hideous all day.
Hmmm tethers nice stuff, but I'm not paying that much money for a top! [scrooge]
I've got some nursing vests & a couple of suitable Tshirts to wear over the top, but I remember getting really hot wearing 2 layers (& holding a baby) last time I bf in the summer...
mamaway have a few nice tops (I have the green hoodie tunic & love it!)
mutti wicheck out verdabaut & h&m (I didn't know they did nursing clothes)
tamdin I'm struggling with bras too - bravissimo have nice stuff, but I never really wear frilly, lacy undies anyway & don't want to fork out that much money for bras which might not fit me in a few weeks time! I ordered a couple of dull but functional bras from M&S tonight as I only have 2 which fit atm & they are from last time I bf & are quite well used!
I feel as if I've looked at every affordable bf top on sale in the UK, and none of them are that nice - all seem a bit mumsy / hippy / obviously a nursing top to me. I've ended up buying a few Emma Jane vest tops (drop down clips and keep you quite covered, also suck in my mummy tummy quite nicely), then some nice "normal" floaty T-shirts / tops with buttons to wear over the top. It does seem to be a real gap in the market though.
