Best for Versatility 2017
Cantaloop Tank Top review
This maternity tank top is an incredibly useful part of your wardrobe, and it's as supportive as any bra
The Cantaloop Pregnancy and Nursing Tank Top is exactly what it sounds like – a vest top designed for pregnancy with an option to use it for nursing. We loved the versatility of this top, and found an abundance of ways to wear it during the two months it was tested.
The most obvious use is sleeping, and the Cantaloop was definitely comfortable enough for this to be a main feature. Made from stretchy material without seams, the vest offers strong support in the bra section while still being soft and with plenty of give. You can feel the extra support under the bust; there’s a tighter knit and extra width where the top forms an A-shape.
As well as sleeping, we found we could wear this top in the day as a normal vest coupled with leggings, or as a top underneath a shirt during colder days. You could conceivably never take this bra off (except to wash, obviously). We loved this about the Cantaloop – not only does it mean it’s incredibly good value, it’s also a godsend when you’re feeling too grotty to spend hours staring into your wardrobe.
If you choose to breastfeed later on, the Cantaloop will still be your friend. The nursing bra is seamlessly integrated; it’s easy to open each cup, and the positioning of the fabric means you would be able to breastfeed discreetly without exposing your stomach.
We washed the top a number of times at 40C, and it washed well and kept its shape and colour.
