This is a review of the Blooming Marvellous Maternity Wrap Around Nursing Top that I bought in grey whilst pregnant (towards the end) with a view to wearing it when out and about nursing the baby. I also bought the same top in black which I have actually worn far more than the grey version.
The top is nice and long on the body, with super stretchy material and will suit either before or after the baby is born. It has a cross over style top with a false panel in between that helps with discretion whilst nursing (although I haven't really figured out how this works on me as I find it easier to lift up my top than work around secret panels. I just add a blanket over the baby once she is fixed on and hide any flashing body parts this way!.
I like the style of this top. It is super flattering and looks lovely on even me. The only problem I have is with the colour. If you have a leaky milk mishap on grey marl it will look really obvious whilst you will get away with it with the black version. I do use breast pads in my bra but sometimes they shift about and I end up with no protection there.
Price and sizes
The top is very reasonably priced at £14. For some reason I always thought that the Blooming Marvellous range was expensive so never really looked in to it but wish I had more now. The top is available in sizes 8 to 18.
I love this top but am scared to wear it outside the home because of the colour. I much prefer it in the black rather than grey but have been impressed with the quality of the top and how well it washes with no ironing required!
