I became a huge fan of Undercover Mama nursing shirts shortly after having my daughter. I purchased two after hearing about them, and have lived in them almost every day since they arrived. My collection of tanks has grown in size about 4 fold. While my nursing journey was not exactly what I hoped for with my daughter, I did become a dedicated pumping mama who committed to pumping daily for over 16 months. For myself modesty is important, so I was thrilled to have discovered these.
While pregnant my bra size increased, and after having my daughter it increased even more. Undercover Mama nursing shirts helped me keep things under control and at a modest level I liked thanks to the two different options of attaching the shirt to your bra. I was able to attach the shirt anywhere I wanted on my bra strap with the hook. This allowed me to put the shirt higher or lower as I needed it. It can also be hooked through the same part where the clasp of a nursing bra is located.Bra strap widths do very in size, and I never found this to be an issue with the hooks. They always stayed in place. You can also loop the elastic attachment over the clasp of a nursing bra to make unclasping the bra very easy for nursing or pumping.
My favourite part about Undercover Mama nursing shirt is that they keep my stomach covered while nursing or pumping. When my daughter did attempt to nurse she hated if I used a nursing cover. This way I felt a bit more covered up, and in control of things. There are even a slim mama shirt to help smooth things out after baby. I loved this option right after having my daughter because I did find it made a difference with how shirts laid over my stomach. I had the empty, baby pocket tummy for a little bit after my daughter, that shirt helped me feel more pulled together in confident in my look after baby.
I am currently 24 weeks pregnant, and I am also considered plus size in the world of all things fashion and clothing. I have found that these shirts fit true to size. I wear an extra large shirt normally, and that is what I order in all of my shirts. I have recently purchased a few double extra large to accommodate my expanding tummy during this pregnancy just in case a bit more room is needed. Especially if my tummy starts popping out the bottom of my shirts near the end, this way my tummy will remain covered because the length of these shirts is great. My original shirts that I purchased were a black and a white. Very basic, but since then I have added a lot of colour to my collection, I love the option now of being able to do a pop of a bold colour like red or yellow out from underneath any shirt I wear. It’s a great way to change up my wardrobe easily and have some fun with it.
Undercover Mama also has the best customer service I have ever experienced. One of the shirts I ordered came with some problem areas and the customer service team was quick to reply to my email and question. They truly went above and beyond what I expected, and only made me love this company even more.
