Comfy Kangaroo Nursing Tank - Review and Giveaway!


Comment #3 is our winner!

If you read this post from a few weeks back, you already know that I think breastfeeding is very important.

And any product that helps promote breastfeeding is a great product in my book.

One of the things that I found very useful, especially in those first few months, was my trusty nursing tank. The only problem was, it began to show wear and stretch out after a couple of washes.

I was given the opportunity to review the Comfy Kangaroo nursing tank a couple months ago. I waited so long to post my review because I wanted to really put this tank to the test.

This is not your run-of-the-mill nursing tank. The bra is detachable - the tank comes with an extra pair of straps, so you can use the bra with other tanks, or use a different nursing bra with your tank. Talk about versatility! Another thing that I just love about this tank is the fabric. It's soft, breathable and not too heavy, but at the same time has held up to many washes. The length of the tank is also perfect. Not so long as to draw attention to your hips, but just long enough so you don't have to worry about your post-baby tummy playing peek-a-boo.

The coverage when you are nursing is second to none. The open bra allows the just the bare necessities to be exposed. Did I mention that the bra has built in pockets to hold nursing pads?

Because I believe that any review that I post should be completely honest, I do have to say that the support of the detachable bra was not the greatest. It was fine for around the house, but if I was layering this tank for a trip out, I'd swap the detachable bra for one of my own. If you're not quite as...*ahem*... blessed as me, the detachable bra would probably be plenty of support.

One more thing that I love about the Comfy Kangaroo is that it was created by two moms. I love supporting mommy businesses!

Buy one: At $24 a piece, these tanks are very affordable. Comfy Kangaroo regularly runs specials, so check back for great deals!

Win one: Comfy Kangaroo sent me a black tank in size Large to give away to one of my readers. Yay! If you'd like to win, head on over to their website and then leave me a comment telling me what your favorite feature is. This giveaway will end at midnight on September 30th and I'll announce the winner the next day on this post.

Happy entering!


  1. I like the moisture wicking fabric!

  2. I like that the shirt is extra long. thanks! ruth dot gray at gmail dot com

  3. I like that you are giving away a Comfy Kangaroo!! I think I would like the coverage and fabric the best.

  4. I really like the way it's designed to only expose the "bare necessities" as you put it. I have a couple of the Target nursing tanks and you're pretty much all out in the open with open of those. Awesome giveaway- thanks!

  5. What a great giveaway! I have been wanting a nursing tank. My favorite feature is the pocket for the nursing time my nursing pad popped out the bottom of my shirt in the middle of a party. I like knowing that those little suckers are in there tight!

  6. I, too, like that it only exposes what's really necessary. I hate that my nursing bras expose my whole breast. Thanks!

  7. I like that the bra is interchangeable.

  8. I'm not able to get into Comfy Kangaroo's website right now (says account is suspended??), but I really like that the bra can be swapped with another! Great stuff...
