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?!
It’s gorgeous, and definitely one I am going to be adding to my collection very soon. If you would like one too, then I have just the giveaway for you.
