Summer has finally graced us with its presence here in the UK, and it’s time to hit the swimming pool.  But have you ever tried to breastfeed in a swimming costume? It’s a rather exposing and somewhat difficult experience! So, when Expressiva Nursingwear contacted me about doing a review for them, I immediately fell for the double – layer nursing swim tankini.

The strappy tankini top has a built in ‘bra’ to keep everything in place, but like your standard nursing top, it has two layers, so that you can lift the top layer to access to generous side openings – perfect for breastfeeding in or near the pool or on the beach.

I selected the black Tankini, and while I haven’t had many opportunities to wear it this year, I love the simple, plain style. It’s well made and good quality. It dries pretty quickly out the pool and is in every way a normal, and recommendable, swimming costume, but the ease of nursing in it makes it the best costume I’ve worn in pregnancy and breastfeeding.

It comes highly recommended from myself and Aviya!
