A comfy maternity top that holds it all in

Pregnancy presents some interesting sartorial challenges. Wearing a bra can feel torturous, but keeping the girls supported is a necessity. Covering the belly can feel oppressive, but not keeping it sheathed is out of the question. So what’s a mama-to-be to do?

A multitasking bra/tank combo is one of the best options out there.
Sure, there are many tank tops on the market with built-in bras, but the
new Maternity Bra Tank from Glamourmom was designed especially for the wardrobe challenges every pregnant woman (including me!) face.

The
ruched detail on both sides of the belly area allows for a comfy
transition from mini bump to melon sized tummy. One thing I always have a
problem with in these kinds of tops is that most manufacturers assume
the bra portion is one-size-fits-all. But this guy has an adjustable
chest band, one feature you don’t normally find on tank top/bra combos.

And
because swollen boobs can be such a drag (literally), the straps are
made with a special fabric specifically designed to take weight off your
shoulders.

I’ve been wearing my tank under everything from
hoodies to sweaters. Another plus? The tank’s extra-length is key for
keeping any muffin top and plumber’s butt in check. -Melissa

    But why, oh, WHY must it cost $50?

    I know. $50 for a vest is a bit much. Be good to hear if it is worth it from a real Mom who has used it.
