Bravado maternity & nursing bra review and giveaway

Bravado nursing bra review and giveaway

A good bra is essential at the best of times, but during pregnancy and breastfeeding it becomes even more important. You need the extra support as your breasts grow and change during pregnancy, and you don’t want anything restrictive or with an uncomfortable wire. Because you never know how much your breasts will change shape you need something flexible and soft, that will change as you do. For this, I love the Essential Embrace bra from Bravado.

Comfortable, supportive and lightweight is made from Bravado’s Dynatex fabric – a mix of cotton and microfibre that is breathable and stretchy. It is smooth and leaves no lines under clothing, and even comes with a bra extender if you need it as your shape changes in the last few weeks of pregnancy. The easy open and close cups can be operated with one hand for easy breastfeeding and skin to skin contact. I have this bra in black with purple piping, and it’#s much prettier than some maternity and nursing bras too!

Another great Bravado offering is the Body Silk Seamless nursing bra. Again suitable as a maternity and nursing bra, this one feels like a second skin. It’s seamless and totally invisible under my clothes, and comes with removeable foam cups which can help to hide breast pads if required. The cups drop right down for feeding and can be opened and closed with one hand. The clever thing about this bra is that it comes with a bra conversion kit, allowing you to turn it into a regular bra once you have finished breastfeeding – and you will definitely want to as it’s SO comfortable, and moulds to your shape perfectly.

If you love the look of the Body Silk Seamless bra, then you will be as excited as me by the release of the new Orchid Pink colourway – who said maternity and nursing bras can’t be pretty?!

    Do what feels right. I was told hundreds of times, “if you’re doing it right it WON’T hurt” only to find out later I was doing it right but I was suffering with another problem. Persist and insist, you know your body better than anyone x

    If you really want to BF & it isn’t going very well, don’t be pressure by health visitors or nurses to give up and switch to bottle. See if you can find a BFing consultant in your area (your local NCT may be able to help too), some BFing consultants will even give online advice via email which may be cheaper than a face to face consultation.

    My top tip is to enjoy it! It can be tricky to get the hang of sometimes, it’s a new skill that both you and baby need to learn, but I love snuggling with my girl while she feeds and am so glad I was lucky enough to have the chance to do it.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Great blog!
