Here it is. A nursing friendly and/or just plain stylish shirt. We recommend sizing one size down as the material is very stretchy. Please see photos of buying for actual size vs sizing down one.
1. For long sleeve shirts there is an Extra long cuff on the sleeve you can cuff it or scrunch it. Half sleeve (above elbow sleeves) are also banded but come with a thin band.
2. Easy access for nursing moms. Does not hang open when bending down at least on us smaller chested testers. I suggest to buy for chest size. Model waist and hips fall in 10/12 but chest in 6/8.
3. Banded bottom.
The HumBird [ Merino x Tencel Collection ] is made with jersey fabric. It has a fabric weight of 200gsm (grams per meter) and is an ideal material to use for year-round comfort. Both Merino and Tencel™ are known for their breathability, moisture management, anti-bacterial properties and being gentle on the skin. These materials are combined together to make an outstanding fabric that is comfy and environmentally responsible.
More on Merino: Our merino is made using the Schoeller EXP method. EXP stands for “EX-Pollution", which describes its avoidance of pollutants during the anti-felting treatment process.
Merino jersey that is considered "easy care" (can be laundered without fulling) is traditionally processed with the use of chlorine and often coated in a polymer (plastic) finish.
In contrast, the EXP method uses salts to keep the wool ecological.
