Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Flamingo Pink
by in Minneapolis, MN.
Reviewer Status: Nursing/2 months post partum
Love this tank! I bought it in 2 colors and plan to buy it in 2 more. It is true to size and very flattering to my new enormous bust. Fine on it's own or nice under a tshirt or over shirt. Only a few bad points- there's definitely a learning curve on the nursing clip (at least to use it with only one hand). Also, I find I have to adjust my breasts to get the built in bra to fit correctly. Not so desirable in public, but I've managed thus far. Amazing support once I get them in right! I am currently an F cup, so that is saying a lot :) Lastly, I accidentally threw them in the dryer and it left milk stains. They washed out, but just an FYI that they do need to line dry. That's what the tag says, it was my mistake. Overall, I would highly recommend these. Their support and versitility make them my favorite nursing tank and a staple of my wardrobe.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Dark Plum
Reviewer Status: nursing an 8 month old
I love my Bravado tank, but it's not the Dark Plum one I ordered here. Despite measuring and re-measuring following the instructions on the Bravado website, I still ordered the wrong size. It gapped under my arms. I wasn't sure if it was too big or too small. I found another one I could actually try on and discovered the first was too small. The bigger one fit perfectly. Great support. Great for nursing while babywearing. I wish I had one for every day of the week. But apparently Bravado has moved the production of its tanks from Mexico to China. I will therefore not be purchasing anymore. If I come across any older, Mexican-made ones, I will definitely buy them!

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Greenville, NC.
Reviewer Status: 9 months pregnant
I can only comment on the apparent quality and appearance of the tank thus far, as it doesn't fit... It looks great - color, material, workmanship etc. But, my breast size hasn't increased much during this pregnancy like it did before, so the cups of the tanks are way too big (I go between a 36 B/C in most brands)... The material underneath bunches terribly. I assume my breast size will increase once I have my baby and my milk comes in, so I am holding onto this to try PP. I like the tank and hope it fits... But I am surprised the cups run so large, especially since I don't consider myself especially small chested yet this is the smallest cup size available.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Sylva, NC.
Reviewer Status: nursing a newborn
pros: really, really comfy. actually supportive. a flattering, stylish nursing tank. long enough to hit at the hip. comes in lots of colors (I've got black, dark teal-blue, brown & white). easy to open with one hand. clasps don't break/wear out even after 2+ years of heavy use! cons: it's a little low-cut to wear solo (if you're big-chested). also, i wore mine while pregnant and stretched it waaaay out, so although it's billed as being a good "transitioning" tank, i'd say its' primary utility is as a nursing/post-partum tank (that said i still absolutely rec'd!).

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Columbia, MD.
Reviewer Status: nursing a newborn
I love this tank! I didn't have very high hopes because I've never been able to wear tanks of any kind with built in bras since they provided too little support, but this is just like wearing one of my nursing bras. I'm currently wearing a 36DD, and while it's definitely not as supportive as an underwire, I will wear it in public without a bra. It shows quite a bit of cleavage, though, so I only wear it under other things. It's incredibly comfortable, and I've slept in it a couple times as well. I'm actually considering getting ones to wear after I finish nursing.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Suede Blush
by in saint louis, MO.
Reviewer Status: Soon to deliver 4th baby
I have nursed 3 babies now plan to nurse my 4th. Nursing tanks are my staple in the first few months home, easy to throw a cardigan over and discretely nurse anywhere thanks to the one hand easy release cups. The Bravado tank is one of my favorites in terms of comfort, color options and durability. They offer great support as well. My one and only complaint with is particular one, is the "suede blush" color. It is a pretty coral-ish orange, but I was hoping for it to be more pink! Still a nice color, just not what I expected!

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in st. helens, OR.
Reviewer Status: Nursing a 4 month old
I really tried to like this tank. I had high hopes and am disappointed. The good: great thick and stretchy fabric, better support than other tanks for larger cup sizes (I'm a 36G, professionally measured). The bad: major uniboob (completely smooshed my boobs together), not true to size (runs small in cup), cup release clasps are awkward and come undone randomly, inside band rolls up and is itchy. Wish I hadn't washed them because I would have returned for sure. Thought I got a dud, but both I ordered have the same issues.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in White
Reviewer Status: nursing a newborn
I really enjoyed the Bravado nursing bras I purchased so I decided to try the nursing tank. I do enjoy it very much - makes nursing on the go easy as I'm not flashing everyone my stomach. Only thing different on the tank than the bras is the clasp. The clasps on the bras are much easier to manage than on the tank. You have to "thread" the clip through a hole to snap it in place - this takes a while to master. On the bras you are able to clasp the pieces together much easier. I would recommend this product.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in White
by in SEASIDE, CA.
Reviewer Status: Nursing 2 month old
I'm probably the only person who doesn't like this tank. While the price point is right and the selection of sizing/colors is great, I did not like the inner shelf bra nor the feel of the fabric. Maybe my sizing was off, but the shelf bra was very stiff and created a 'cone boob' effect on my breasts. I found the fabric a bit coarse and not as stretchy as I had hoped. I knew immediately this was not the tank for me. Hopefully others will have better luck. I am 5'7", athletic build, 150# and a 32D/DD.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in White
This is a must-have for a nursing mother. Once I put it on, I don't want to wear anything else, so convenient, so supportive and so comfortable. I used to buy nursing wear of cheap brands (not so cheap though!) at big chains and hate them all whenever I put them on, especially after several times of wash. However, I personally like the old design, which shows less the boobs and has less room around the waist, of the tank top, and I wish Bravado could put it back to the market.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Rocky Hill, NJ.
Reviewer Status: Nursing a toddler
When I first started nursing, this was my least favorite of the nursing tanks I had purchased. I didn't like the fact that my breast was completely unsupported and exposed once I opened the nursing flap. After two years of hard use, my opinion is very different. I've just purchased two more because the one I started with has held up very well. I still looks good and fits well now that my belly is gone. These give great support and don't bite into my chest after hours of wear.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Lagoon Blue
by in Cardiff, CA.
Reviewer Status: nursing a 3 month old
Very comfy, enough that I sleep in them (I have two). Very worth the money IMHO, much more comfy than the other brand I tried as this one has a real bra instead of shelf bra. Long enough to cover my low-rise pants, very important, and not too fitted so jiggly belly is not highlighted. Like other reviewers, I don't like the shiny straps, but that's a minor complaint. Also note it shows cleavage, which some like and some don't like, it's your call.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in East Peoria, IL.
Reviewer Status: 32 weeks pregnant
This tank was tight on me at first, but has since loosened a little. For my next order I would order one size larger around (not bust). The hooks take a bit of practice and seem daunting at first, but quickly they can be undone with one hand. Even with large breasts, I find this tank very supportive and great for around the house by itself or under other shirts. It is a little low cut if that bothers you.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Dark Plum
by in Lexington, KY.
I love these tanks. This is my 7th tank. It is by far the best most supportive tank. I'm a 34 C/D. I opt for the size 34b/c. No additional bra needed. Supportive enough for moderate exercise. I do wish the came in a moisture wicking fabric. The gather in the front also shows through some smooth form fitting tops. But that is minor price to pay to be able to nurse on the go with ease & comfort & support.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Dark Plum
by in Savannah, GA.
Reviewer Status: Nursing a newborn
I LOVE my Bravado Nursing tanks! The sizing is a little tricky, but since I received them I have worn them almost exclusively 24 hours a day! You can wear them alone, under a shirt, or under a cardigan. The gathering between the breasts means that it DOES show some cleavage, but again it is nice worn under another shirt or sweater. I prefer these to nursing bras since they keep my tummy covered.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in White
by in Windham, NH.
This was a nice tank, however the sizing seemed strange to me. I have been wearing a 36 b since I got pregnant (34 a before pregnancy) and ordered this tank in a 36 b. The shelf bra under the tank was huge and the cups were bunchy and very visible underneath the top layer. It would be an awesome tank if it fit, but it was so big that I didn't know what size to exchange it for.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Chocolate
by in Sonora, CA.
Reviewer Status: Nursing a newborn
This is the best nursing shirt ever!!!! I wish I could afford more of them, because I would wear them every day. It is the ONLY nursing tank I have tried that actually supports me, is super comfortable, and stylish. I was concerned it would be too short, as I am 5'9" tall, but it is perfect. So worth the money, and this site is the cheapest place online that I found it!

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in White
by in Tonawanda, NY.
Reviewer Status: nursing a newborn
This is the BEST nursing tank top I have ever worn (and I'm on kid # 3 and wear these instead of bras the whole time I'm nursing). It is the most flattering, has the most support, and the whole side folds down- no holes that are too small. You can even wear nursing bra pads, and they BARELY show, not like others were it is glaringly obvious. I wish I had a bunch of these!

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Chocolate
Reviewer Status: Nursing a Newborn
This nursing bra tank is very attractive and offers a good deal of support for smaller breasted women. For women with larger breasts (e.g. E cup and higher) it may not offer enough support and lift. For nursing mothers with large breasts, this tank is excellent for sleeping or for lounging around the house, but not necessarily for activities outside of the house.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Columbus, OH.
Reviewer Status: 38 weeks pregnant
I love this nursing tank! I ordered the black one and then ordered two more in other colors. The built in bra is a serious bra. I like the ruching and the length is good for me at 38 weeks pregnant (I'm only 5'4" though). The neckline is very feminine and I don't feel frumpy in this, but it's very supportive. The only thing I would change is the price ;)

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Oak Park, IL.
Reviewer Status: 6 weeks post partum
Comfy and supportive. The clips are a little different from typical nursing bras so there is a little bit of a learning curve to figure them out, which is the only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5. But it's the most supportive tank I own, so I'm always reaching for it. Much better support than the cheaper tanks with the flimsy shelf bra.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Chocolate
by in Plymouth, WI.
Reviewer Status: Nursing a newborn
Pros: Very supportive (I wear as an alternative to a nursing bra) and it is nice to have torso coverage while nursing. Cons: Not a big problem, but the clip is different than the bravado bras and sometimes takes 2 hands for me (but I'm still practicing). Also, I would love it if it was longer, but I have a longer torso.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in White

Reviewer Status: nursing
I'm a 36 F/G, and the tank fit very well, with enough support that if I'm just walking around through the day, it provides enough support in place of a bra. The rib cage measurement may be a little loose. The tank is tighter than I would like to be worn alone. Instead I find it good to wear under other shirts.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Twilight Blue
by in Syracuse, NY.
Black is much heavier material than the other colors, with better tummy support. The other colors are clingy but thin and unsupportive, resulting in an unflattering fit. If you were planning to wear just for sleep or around the house and don't care what it looks like, it could work fine.

Review of Bravado Essential Nursing Bra Tank in Black
by in Kennesaw, GA.
I love this tank! Fits perfect and Ive gone up two cup sizes to a DDD/F since pregnant. I ordered the 34F/G to be sure it will fit when milk comes in since my breasts grow three cup sizes from start of pregnancy to finish. The F/G fits very well and I'm in my third trimester of pregnancy
