Let me introduce you to one of the comfiest nursing and maternity bras in the world (in my opinion!), the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra!
I first discovered the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra whilst pregnant with Rowan. I was a little naughty and during that pregnancy I didn’t buy any nursing or maternity bras as I wasn’t planning to breastfeed. Four weeks before my due date I then changed my mind and decided that I was going to breastfeed and I thought I’d better prepare. This included finding and buying some nursing bras and I chose Bravado after researching a number of brands online.
I tried it on in a size medium, it fitted to perfection and felt so unbelievably comfortable. I think I wore it everyday (washing it in between of course!). Rowan then arrived into the world and I only breastfed him for five days until I regretfully gave up as Rowan was badly tongue tied and couldn’t latch on properly. During this short time I had extremely sore breasts and nipples and I wouldn’t have got through it without the help of my Bravado nursing bra.
I was absolutely delighted when Bravado got in touch recently to ask me to review their limited edition garnet shade of the Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra as I already I’d love it. Thankfully I knew what size to order it in and opted for a size medium. Although saying that Bravado have such a fantastic sizing guide online that they make it so easy for you to measure yourself accurately to find your perfect fit.
The bra is made from a soft and stretchy seamless fabric and feels so lovely against your skin as it moulds to your exact shape, the bra is also non-wired so you don’t need to adjust it during the day at all when bras with wire can begin digging in a little bit.
The one thing I must mention here is that I’m someone who loves a wired bra, I’m not particularly large and I like a bra to give me a lot of lift. I was a little worried that I would look flatter in a nursing bra, although I don’t have to worry with the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra because the removable foam cups help give shape and look really natural too without making me feel self conscious.
Other fantastic features of the Bravado Nursing Bra include:
- Removable foam cups – these provide a lining to hide nipples or breast pads that you can remove at any time
- Full access via the nursing clips – They unclip at the shoulders and drop down away from the body so your baby has full access to your breast, in turn providing you with the ever important skin to skin contact
- A proprietary bra conversion kit (BCK) – which is attached to the bra and can be used to turn the nursing bra into a regular bra once you’ve finished your breastfeeding journey
Although it is called a nursing bra it makes a superb maternity bra to wear whilst pregnant. In the first four months of my current pregnancy I was sore and I was able to wear this bra to keep everything in place and comfortable as my body was changing. I’ve put both away for now until later in my pregnancy and for the breastfeeding journey afterwards.
The bra is available to purchase from a range of online retailers and is priced around £30. I think this is a fantastic price for a bra that you will wear throughout the whole of your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey. I’d probably still wear it after too! It comes in a variety of colours to suit your choice.
