Original post on February 18, 2014:
I was too cheap, or lazy, or probably both, to buy a wardrobe of nursing shirts. Instead, I just yank my regular shirt up, exposing my tummy and back to the world. I always wear a nursing cover in public, but my back is still totally exposed which always bothered me. If I have a cardigan to throw on, that works fine, but I don't always have one and it's not always cool enough to wear one. This is why I think Undercover Mama has one of the most awesome products for breastfeeding moms!! Check out this cool tank top they've created:
Instead of having straps, the nursing tank attaches to your nursing bra. Then you wear your regular shirt on top and pull it up to breastfeed. But The Undercover Mama is covering your tummy and back! No need for expensive nursing shirts, and really, not a huge need for a nursing cover either!
They have the regular style (in 13 colors from XS to 3XL!), as well as one with a lace bottom, and one with a slimming panel around the waist (goodbye muffin top!). They even have a top cover, like a crop top t-shirt that you can wear on top of the tank. Here's the lineup (from their website):
Undercover Mama (mom invented, owned, & operated - AWESOME!!) will be giving a $30 gift voucher to the grand prize winner of my New Mom Necessities Giveaway (ending at midnight tonight!!), who'll also win 14 other awesome products valued over $600!!

Product review added 3/5/2014:
I LOVE the idea of this product so was really anxious to get my hands on it to try it out myself! In a nutshell, it's awesome!!
I didn't realize the hook had two different options, which is great, and after playing around with it for a second I figured it out and it hooked onto my nursing bra without a problem! I got the "slimming style" design, in size small, which was snug! Not as snug and sucky-inny as Spanx, but it felt good and supportive, like a workout tank or something. Since the Undercover mama hooks onto your nursing bra in the front, the back is strapless, but it's snug fitting and didn't sag.
Nursing in it the first time was really strange. I'm used to having my belly and back totally uncovered at home or with a cover hanging over me and baby when out, so to be totally covered up with only my ta-ta exposed was really bizarre! And really nice!!!
Undercover Mama is such a wonderful option for breastfeeding mamas out there who don't have the time or money to invest in a breastfeeding wardrobe. The label says "make ANY SHIRT a nursing shirt" and that is spot on!! US-Japan Fam gives it two thumbs up!
