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?!

    Relax and don’t be hard on yourself as it takes time to get the hang of it for you and baby. If baby wants feeding lots it’s their way of getting you to make more milk it will settle down eventually

    Persevere – the first few weeks (or maybe months!) can be so tough. But it’s all worth it 🙂

    Definitely use a special pillow in the early days, saves back ache and baby is in a good position

    Make sure your baby’s mouth covers a large part of the underside of your nipple

    Be patient, it’s new for both you and baby If you don’t get it straight away don’t stress your both still learning.

    Take time and patience to find the right position for you and your baby. The images you see in the media, of women sat upright might not suit you so don’t be upset if you find it difficult like that

    always remember to eat well and drink plenty of fluids when breastfeeding

    Firstly, make sure you have a lovely big glass of water or juice near you for hydration, make sure you’re comfortable, and try to relax! I had a terrible time trying to breastfeed my two daughters, yet breastfeeding my sons had been a dream! Its different with each baby, but the one constant is you must be happy! 😉

    Keep persevering if it doesn’t come naturally, as it sometimes takes time for a new baby to learn to feed from you effectively. Always stop and try to latch the baby on again in slightly different position if it hurts excessively as usually pain is a sign that the latch isn’t quite right and re-latching the baby on again will help. If you are really struggling then seek help. With my first, a breastfeeding counsellor talked me & my husband through it with positioning etc. via phonecall. Thanks to her I managed to continue breasffeeding and breastfeed all my children. The Internet and Youtube is also a good source of information with how to videos.

    Persevere with it if you can but try not to beat yourself up if it just isn’t working.

    I would say relax and go with the flow.
