Cardimom Review

The Summer Tank Cardimom open weave sweater is seriously multi-purpose. This sweater can be worn alone, with a baby carrier, and is also a great privacy cover for nursing. I’m wearing a small here and find it comfortable, lightweight and it has a great fit. Made from 100% cotton, it’s breathable and goes great with my leggings, jeans and also was nice to have on vacation with shorts. Take a look at my sample below.

I have been babywearing for nearly 7 years now! Gasp. I know…what an amazing and beautiful journey it has been! I’ve tried many carriers and products and enjoy every moment. I am thrilled to show you this Cardimom sweater. I took some pictures on a mannequin and also on me so you can see how it fits. I’m wearing a small and am a bit over 5’4″ and 136 lbs in these photos and have my 18 m/o 36lb baby in a back carry in a Chimparoo Trek.

Overall impression

I’m very happy with this product. I primarily wear it alone over a tank, but this could easily be worn over form-fitting short sleeve or long sleeve top. My son is 18 months here and as you can see below, enjoying himself in this setup. I do need a bit of assistance putting this over him and have not quite mastered using it with a carrier alone. I also don’t have perfect shoulder range of motion. If he was smaller, I would want to make sure his head and neck control was strong enough to move from the fabric and wouldn’t suggest this for tiny babies.

My husband likes this. He seems to forget that I have it and says “ooooo what are you wearing?” every time he sees it. What to pair it with? I’m wearing my favourite jeans from Prana but have also worn with leggings. The jeans come up high enough to not give me a muffin-top but are not over my belly button. This combination makes me feel pretty because it’s almost like wearing a dress and leggings that I can chase soccer balls in with sneakers.

The Cardimom tank is also recommended as a bathing-suit cover and while it’s listed for summer, I would wear this over a stretchy t-shirt I have that I don’t like clinging to my stomach. Where can you buy one? Visit the Cardimom shop to see what’s in stock and take a look at their selection.
