The 7 best nursing tank tops for large breasts

Whether you are are breastfeeding or pumping, nursing tanks are versatile members of your maternity wardrobe. You can wear it as a top, as an under-layer or with an open cardigan.

It’s hard for moms with large breasts to find nursing bras that are supportive and comfy. Nursing tanks are more stretchy, provide better coverage and are more comfortable than nursing bras. They can also stretch to hug your baby bump during pregnancy and hide your post-partum tummy.

What should you look for in a nursing tank?

  • good quality, stretchy fabric that can stretch to accommodate your changing body
  • breathable material, preferably cotton, bamboo or modal.
  • built-in shelf bra for support – unless you are planning to wear a nursing bra underneath
  • side slings for support when you’re breastfeeding
  • ruching or layers for a more flattering silhouette
  • long-line so that it can stretch over your baby bump easily and won’t ride up

It was impossible to find a nursing tank that ticked every single box but these nursing tanks came close:
