I looked at my tops and shirts and was desperate to put them on. In the first month I couldn't put them on due to my big belly but I really wanted to feel back to normal and myself again. I was asked if I wanted to review the Breastvest. The breastvest is a vest that you can wear underneath any top and it sits just below your bra line. It was invented my breastfeeding mums and designed to give mummies the confidence they need to feed in public. It completely covers your belly.
The vest is available in sizes XS through to L. I managed to fit into a size S which I was pretty impressed with. You can buy it in the essential colours of black and white or there are limited edition colours available which are red, grey and blue.
What I liked about it:
- I was able to wear my normal clothes
- It covered my belly which let's face it, you really don't want to show that off after giving birth.
- It washes well
- The material is stretchy
- You couldn't see the outline of the vest underneath my normal clothes
- It was comfortable
What I didn't like about it:
- Whilst my belly remained covered I did feel that my breast was still exposed and that is something I am very self conscious of when in public
Overall, I do really like the vest. It's allowed me to get back to normality quickly and it has saved me money through not having to buy and stock pile a load of breastfeeding tops. I would like to see them design a vest that has a discreet feeding option around the breast. One that has a triangle shape so that only your nipple is exposed as opposed to your whole breast.
Have you heard of this vest before? If you breastfed, did exposure bother you?
