I tried compression wraps after my first two births but immediately gave them up because they were uncomfortable and visible underneath my clothing.
Ordinary compression tanks make breastfeeding difficult so I really wanted that combined a highly-functional nursing tank top with compression in the belly area.
The tank has two layers, the under-layer with the compression band and the over-layer.
I was hoping for a lot of compression and the tank really delivers without any need to go down a size; even 6 weeks postpartum, it takes four inches off my tummy. Another band below it provides extra coverage and prevents slippage. The compression provides back support, pulls in my tummy, and gives me a confidence boost during these delicate postpartum months.
The back support is especially important to me as I nurse to prevent back pain and improve my posture.
The drop down cups have an added mesh layer where you can insert nursing pads to keep them in place…because suddenly leaking everywhere because someone said, “milk”, “baby”, or “cry” is just no fun.
The over-layer is extra long and smoothes out everything. Because of this extra layer, you could even wear the tank by itself.
I’m still in the process of shedding the extra baby weight but in the meantime it is nice to have a little help. And when my friends say I look great, I’m happy to share my secret so they can benefit as well.
This is my third breastfed baby but the confidence that comes from good nursingwear can still make a big difference. That is why I am so pleased to hear that, beginning Monday, August 1, 2011, in celebration of National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, Glamourmom will match any product purchase at www.glamourmom.com and www.glamourmom.co.uk by donating a nursing bra tank to moms in various developing countries and domestic organizations assisting moms and babies in need. The Buy One, Give One donation program will run until August 31, 2011.
Line Rothman, Glamourmom founder, explains, “Our Buy One, Give One Campaign allows moms to purchase Glamourmom products during August to have a Glamourmom tank donated to a nursing mom in need. As a company we felt it important that every new mom have the opportunity to breastfeed their baby and be encouraged to continue by becoming a Glamourmom.”
Confidence, style, and helping others makes you a real Glamourmom!
