Racing Club Breastfeeding shirt
Argentinian side Racing Club have designed a football shirt specially adapted to allow for more comfortable breastfeeding. In the launch video, several Racing-supporting mothers talk about the stigma that is still attached to public breastfeeding and how it is not yet fully accepted in society, despite being the most natural thing in the world and a basic necessity.
The purpose-made shirt has been produced using the club's Kappa home shirt and has a strategically placed opening between two overlapping layers, allowing babies to access the mother's breast in a way that's comfortable and practical, all while showing support for Racing.
The club say that they have made the design available to any club in the world so that others can follow in their footsteps.
Although breastfeeding clothing using the same basic concept have existed for a while, it is the first time it has been applied to a football kit. Do you think more clubs will follow their lead? Comment below.
