My fellow blogger, Lisa received a nursing tank in exchange for a thorough review. The opinions stated herein are 100% her own.
What is an Undercover Mama?An Undercover Mama is a nursing shirt. It provides discrete coverage while nursing in public. The top of the shirt (see picture - shirt attaches to your nursing bra). When you are ready to feed your baby, you pull your shirt up and reveal the tank shirt underneath. It's definitely an ingenious design. For one mama that has nursed about everywhere, including in restaurants, I have come to love my Undercover Mama. Seriously. With my anatomy, It is so difficult to juggle the boob, the baby, the baby weight - to worry about keeping my shirt pulled down in the back. With Undercover Mama, it's really a no-brainer. It's the comfortable way to nurse.
Why is Undercover Mama Better than Anything I have TriedIn the past, I have used those nursing covers that go around your neck. They cover the front, but do not account for the skin on the side and in back. With Undercover mama, everything is covered. The outer shirt protects the boob, and your Undercover Mama nursing shirt protects your back. It turns any shirt into a nursing shirt, which saves you money. No need to buy different styles to match every pair of shoes! Most importantly, Undercover Mama promotes nursing your baby anywhere - which is something I fully support for women. Doing it discretely and easily will make nursing easier, more comfortable and more accessible for a large variety of women.
Is Undercover Mama Comfortable and Easy to Care for?I do not like feeling like a sausage in my own clothes. I like loose. I like airy. I was worried about Undercover Mama because of this reason. So, for the purpose of this review, I wore my Undercover Mama everywhere - including under my shirts in 97 degree heat, while wheeling my toddler and 1st grader up and down hills in their Radio Flyer Wagon. Needless to say, no matter what I wear, 97 degree heat is going to be uncomfortable. However, the Undercover Mama didn't make me feel any less comfortable. It is as if I wasn't wearing it at all. Even though it's tight to the skin, the material is so light. It didn't make me sweat. Most of the time, I leave it on all day, even when at home. I just forget that I am wearing it. For me, if I have to give any piece of clothing extra special treatment, I'm not going to buy it. I just put it in the washing machine with my other clothes, and it came out like new! Really, it's so easy to care for.
- "It's a simple, yet genius concept. By attaching to your top-opening nursing bra, it maintains the one-step process when you open your nursing bra to begin the nursing process."-Lori
- "I tested a white shirt and found that it's not see-through, hasn't pilled, stretched, or become "worn" looking during the last few months. It's also very easy to attach to your bra and doesn't come undone on its own. This product is quite obviously the invention of a real life nursing mother."-Rachel
- "WoW! A MUST HAVE for all nursing moms!!!! Easy transaction and fast shipping! THANKS A LOT for the excellent service!!"-Mélanie from Montréal, Québec
- "I am so very happy to have found UnderCoverMama!! After having my second daughter I pulled out all my old nursing tops and was dreading the thought of having to be limited to the few styles in various colors for the next year or so. And having tried on a few nursing tops at our local maternity store I was even more discouraged. I turned to the internet to no avail until I check my email and a friend told me to go check out this new site, undercovermama.com. What a wonderful discovery!! It was EXACTLY what I had been hoping to find! To be able to wear ANY top and feel confident nursing anywhere without 'exposing' myself is a wonderful thing! It's so easy to hook onto my nursing bra and it makes the whole 'getting to the good stuff' fast and easy no matter what I'm wearing. What a blessing for nursing moms!!"-D from AK
