My first thought when I saw Ta-Ta Towel was, “Hmm.. another gimmick.” But as I read further, it turned out to be a genius idea! Didn’t know why no one thought about it before this lady.
So what’s a Ta-Ta Towel?
Quoting the inventor, Erin Robertson:
“The Ta-Ta Towel is patented reversible towel solution that’s made of terrycloth fabric on one side and a super-soft liner on the other. The garment absorbs moisture from underneath the breasts and behind the neck, keeping bacteria at bay.”
And this is what it looks like:
Cool… But why do I need one, you ask?
Don’t look quite appealing, isn’t it? Wait till I tell you its benefits as described by Erin:
1. No more boob sweat!
It all started out because Erin was very annoyed by the sweat dripping down her stomach from the boobs because her A/C was broken. She kept thinking for the solutions until one night in her bed and the Eureka! moment hit her. And here come the Ta-Ta Towel.
2. Bye-bye rashes!
Little did Erin knows, her invention has helped her friends and many other women in many different ways. The rashes on one of her friends has completely disappeared after using the towel. It has absorbed away the moisture buildup under her breasts that caused the rashes.
3. Breastfeeding mom saver!
One, the towel absorbs any breast milk that may leak out. Two, its ultra soft liner is perfect for sensitive nipples. Do you need more reasons to like the towel?
OK… Are they true?

There is always a but!
I checked on their store and I don’t think their price is very economical for mommies and all ladies in this part of the world. It costs in total US$ 65 including shipping for just one piece.
Sweat not! I’m giving you the second “but”. We have a variety of nursing bras available here. They are designed specifically to ease the breastfeeding process and they also prevent milk stain. Most importantly, they are very fashionable and affordable.
