Expressiva Nursingwear (Plus a Giveaway!)

I really have a confession....I nursed my now 3 year old until he was 10 months old and am currently nursing my 10 month old daughter and I have never owned a piece of nursing wear. Doesn't that sound nuts? I don't even currently have a nursing bra! I got the amazing opportunity to review Expressiva Nursingwear's bestselling tee in organic cotton and it was wonderful. I can't tell you the difference nursing clothing makes! I honestly feel like nursing tops will help moms to breastfeed longer. Convenience really is everything in the breastfeeding game.

I know how uncomfortable I am nursing in public, exposing all my skin for the world to see and hiding in my car under three blankets trying to get us comfortable. I hate having to do that. I don't know why I never thought to purchase nursing tops before!

Expressiva offers a wide variety of styles and fabrics with very affordable prices! I think I always thought nursing items were horribly expensive and so I never looked into them, but their prices are very reasonable. Most of the tops are around $20.00! They also offer nursing bras and sleep sets!

Here is a picture of the top I reviewed(and this is also what is up for grabs in the giveaway):

Best-Selling Tee in Organic Cotton

Isn't it cute? They pride themselves on having tops that allow you to nurse even in the most public of places, and I have to say I agree! This makes things sooo much easier!

The outer layer on this top is longer than the under layer, which means that there are no visible nursing openings. I really liked this aspect because this was my first nursing top and I wanted something that didn't look like one! There are two openings in the under layer to allow you to nurse your baby. So simple!



They do offer many other opening styles and you can view them all here.

I also love that this company has an organic line for my green little mind. They offer you organic cotton and bamboo in many different styles and colors. I really liked that there were many options instead of just a couple.

Overall, I really love this company. I love the variety they offer and that their clothes are stylish and don't look like nursing clothing.

The only complaint I have? I ordered based on my bra size since I had no idea what size of a nursing item I would need and I found it a tad too big. If you normally wear a medium, go with that instead of ordering based on your bra size like I did. I still adore the top, but I wish it was a little more fitted. If you like a loose tee, then order based on your bra size. I am not sure if it is supposed to fit loose or fitted, but for me, I like it to hug a little more. It does shrink a little bit since it is 100% cotton(and in my case organic cotton), so you should allow for that as well. After I washed it and dried it, it definitely fit much better.

Once again, I dealt with a company with exceptional customer service! If you have any questions about sizing or anything else, they will gladly answer your questions! You can contact them here:
