I recently wrote a post about cleavage. Ooo, it was a good one! LOL
That post got me into a very interesting conversation with Krista at Welcome to Married Life. (Hey Krista!)
I am a breastfeeding momma. I love to breastfeed. I love the connection with my babies. Truely a gift that God has given us mothers.
Before kids I was a 34 D. Not too bad. Not too big, but I was still somewhat limited in what I could wear.
Fast forward to baby #2. My son. Born at 9 pounds and 22 inches (I am 5’4″), he was no small baby. He did not lose one ounce of birth weight. Not one. The boy had fat rolls at birth. When he latched on, he latched on! My chest swelled to a 42 H. An H! I did not even know they made that size bra. I was miserable. How in the world do you find shirts that will fit without looking like a tent? You don’t! I am very thankful that while breastfeeding the rest of the babies I have not exceeded a 36DD!
Since I already know what’s coming I have my eyes open to purchase a few shirts just for nursing in public. I like the button ups. I don’t have to practically pull my shirt over my head, exposing my mom belly, while trying to nurse a baby.
Here are few that I like:
I like shirts that are darted. They have a very slimming effect. The rouching at the chest also gives a little more room and keeps your buttons from pulling.
This one also has a good, slimming shape, and the sleeves are very cute.
Don’t you just love the color? I am such a red girl!
Look at the sleeves!!! 🙂
The only way this could get better is if the shirts are on sale when I go to buy them. Woo hoo!
I don’t breastfeed for the cute tops, it just happens to be a perk! LOL
Leaning on God,
