Expressiva ~ Review and Giveaway!



I breastfed all of my kids, and never would have thought I would still be breastfeeding my youngest at 22 months but here we are! I mostly only let her have the breast when we are home now, but when we are out there is still the occasion where she demands it. I chose the Athena Halter Top to review because I wanted something I could wear while at the pool or the beach without having to fully expose myself like I was having to do with regular tank tops or my bathing suit.

About Expressiva:
At Expressiva we believe that women should NOT have to sacrifice fashion, quality or style when shopping for nursingwear. Breastfeeding mothers should be able to dress as fashionably while nursing as in their pre-baby days. Expressiva is committed to designing and manufacturing stylish clothing that is convenient for pumping and nursing discreetly in public. We want you to look great feeding your baby the ideal food - whether at work, at home, or at a wedding.

From the outside, none of our clothing looks like nursingwear. We design styles for all the occasions of your life - dressy styles for weddings and other special times, career clothing if you are a mom who pumps at work, and casual clothing for everyday wear. Since
all of our styles have hidden nursing openings, you can feel comfortable nursing discreetly in public. You do not have to retreat to a bathroom stall for feedings.

At
Expressiva Nursingwear we want you to feel confident and beautiful while breastfeeding your baby. Expressing love for your baby, expressing milk for your baby, expressing feelings about your new child are all a part of this very special time in your life - enhancing these moments is why Expressiva was created.
The material is an incredibly soft and stretchy cotton, with two layers of fabric which make up the nursing panels and shelf bra in the bust for discrete breastfeeding. I love how the tulip style hemline and the length is just right. It can be worn casually with jeans, but is nice enough for an evening out with a skirt too.

I really really like this top, I might even say it is my favorite... but I did come across a few sizing issues. I only have B-Cups, and since I needed a size large I had to tie the neck strap pretty tight in order to be covered. I'm not complaining because they do mention on their site that their clothing is one size larger in the bust, but wanted to mention it. The important part is that this stylish nursingwear looks and feels great for any occasion and I will continue to wear it even after my daughter stops nursing.
Expressiva Nursingwear sells nursing bras, nursing sleep bras, nursing tops, nursing dresses, nursing sleepwear and loungewear, and other products for breastfeeding mothers to make nursing in front of other people easy and discreet.
