For those playing along at home, you may remember my struggle to find the perfect fit with the Sugar Candy everyday seamless bras. Unlike most of the items I review here, their bras only come in blanket sizes XS-XXL, not specific band & cup variations. This is fine for standard & fuller figured sizes, but means that those with extreme size variances between bust & underbust measurements might not be able to find their perfect fit.
I was a little hesitant to try their maternity tank for this reason, but with the ever fluctuating size of my body & bust during pregnancy I thought there would be no harm in trying.
The nursing tank is a full maternity bra & singlet all in one. The bra section is great & made exactly like their everyday bras. I was happy to see a well thought out design with high quality fabrics. Knowing that the bras are being specifically designed for a full bust, you can see why the added features of a platform sling & side support slings are so important. Wrangling a large bust in a wire free & seam free, generic sized bra without these slings would be impossible! The platform provides lift, while the side support creates shape & forward projection. The band is thick & does not fold in on itself. The whole design is gentle on the skin & very comfortable to wear.
The singlet is made of the same fabric as the bra & is gentle on the skin. It is a great length & stretches to accommodate bumps of all sizes. Half way through my pregnancy I was able to wear the tank as a mini dress since it was so accomodating. As I expanded it stretched in all the right places & I was wearing this as a singlet days before baby was born.
The fit of the bra was much better than I was expecting. I wore the bra band on a mid to tight size depending on how I was feeling on the day & it sat comfortably the whole time. I didn’t have any issues if my bust spilling out the top of the cups until the very end of my pregnancy.
This tank was a wardrobe lifesaver for my time with the bump. Once she was born this tank transitioned into being pyjamas for me, since the nursing clips made the night time feeds a breeze.
