Once baby arrived I was excited to be able to start wearing some of my “pre-baby” clothing again and pack up the maternity ones. As a breastfeeding mom I realized that most of my favorite tops were not very nursing friendly and that they either could not be pulled down at the neck or would completely expose my midsection when I pulled up my shirt. There are a lot of beautiful tops and dresses which are designed with breastfeeding in mind but we certainly can’t afford to purchase a whole wardrobe to accommodate nursing. The Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt is a must-have item for every breastfeeding woman’s wardrobe and solves that problem!
I personally can not simply wear a nursing tanktop without a bra under it as it does not give me enough support so I am left with extra leaking and an unattractive looking shape. Undercover Mama Nursing Shirts are designed to work with your nursing bra. The design is genius! It is as simple as putting a tank top on over your nursing bra except there are no straps and it hooks right on. You can then put any shirt over top and you are ready to nurse quickly and easily.
The Basic Essentials Nursing Shirt comes in 13 colors and is sized from XS to XXL. The material is 95% cotton and 5% spandex making it breathable but stretchy. It is also easily cared for as it is machine washable. They are fairly priced at $24.99. I’ve seen nursing tops upwards of $60 so spending under $25 on something that I can use with tops I already have PLUS having more versatility with creating different outfits makes this my go-to shirt for breastfeeding when we are out of the house.
The tank connects to your nursing bra with two options. Different bras may coordinate better with different options or you may have a preference. There is a stretchy rubber band that can loop over the hook on the bra or a metal hook that can slide between fabric folds. I have used both options and simply go with whichever one creates the most seamless look under the shirt I’m wearing.

My favorite features of the Undercover Mama:
- Attaches to any nursing bra to instantly create a shirt to easily breastfeed in
- Comes in 13 different colors
- Size Range from XS-XXL
- Easily fits large chests since it stretches and you get the support you need from your bra underneath
