Undercover Mama review and giveaway!


As a nursing mother, there is a constant struggle whether or not to nurse in public (NIP). While it is not against the law, I can understand why some people feel embarrassed to do so. We deal with comments from others occasionally (although sometimes we get praised!), or we are uncomfortable with the idea of exposing our skin-I know for myself, I've lost the baby weight, but have a lot of extra skin and stretch marks due to being so very large with Bennett when I was pregnant, so that makes me a little wary of NIP.
One company has come to my (and other nursing mothers!) rescue! Undercover Mama have created a tool every breastfeeding mother should have, the Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt! Now before you go on about how you already have undershirts, I bet you don't have one like this!
"Undercover Mama functions as an undershirt, keeping your back, sides, and belly covered as you nurse. It has no straps and attaches directly to the outer flaps of any top-opening nursing bra. Welcome to No Hassle Nursing!"
The idea of the Undercover Mama is really simple-you take this shirt and simply hook it to your nursing bra hooks, so when you open your bra, the shirt comes down with it and all the while your body is completely covered. I was able to review a white shirt, and I chose a size medium. I would say these shirts are true to your regular size. They are long, and we all know the layered shirt look is definitely in fashion, so you can maintain that stylish look when you are out and about! I love that the shirt was fitted, but not too tight. It did not change shape or pill in the wash either, it is strong yet soft. I constantly find myself asking "How has nobody come up with this idea before now?" But I'm so glad that the mamas behind Undercover Mama did, this is really a must have for anyone who is nursing, truly.
If you are at all confused about the Undercover Mama nursing shirt, there is a great video on their homepage you should check out! You also get a simple yet easy to follow instruction card with your purchase that looks like this:

There are 5 sizes to choose from S-XXL and all but the XXL come in 4 colors: Black, White, Brown and Cream. The XXL just comes in black and white for now, but if the demand calls for it they start marketing the other colors in that size.
I cannot rave enough about this product, it's quality meets comfort. It really put my mind at ease, and I no longer feel self conscious nursing in public (which as you read from a recent post, I finally got brave enough to do!). And I plan to wear this as a regular shirt long after I'm done nursing, it really is the perfect layering shirt!



Buy it: Buy your own Undercover Mama Nursing shirt, or get one for a friend, these shirts are a must have for anyone who is breastfeeding or plans to nurse! To make the deal sweeter, all readers can use the following discount code at check  "ANYWHERE"  to save 10% off of their order-combine that with their current free shipping promo when you buy 2 or more shirts to save even more!

I just discovered this wonderful item while searching for nursing bras on the internet. This looks like a WONDERFUL must have item for nursing moms!! But it appears that I was a little late for your giveaway. As a mother of 4, even with a nursing cover, I'm always trying to make sure my sides and back are covered at all times. This would SO ease my concern of showing my "mommy skin" to everyone around me ;) The white one would be so easy to wear with anything, but the other colors would be great as well. I hope the one who won is enjoying hers!! If by chance you didn't give it away, I would LOVE an entry into your drawing ;)
PS I love the descrption of you under the "about me" section :)
