When the girls are happy, mama’s happy!

I am super, super, super excited about this review. A) because I am a huge dork and get geeked out about things I love and b) because I am all about nursing, as you probably know. And in a few months, the girls are gonna be back in action nursing a new baby for approximately one to two years!  Due to having gained most of my pregnancy weight in my BEWBS, I already needed a new bra or two to wear.  Tricia has been raving about Bravado Designs for months, so I contacted them (yes, I am a total ho.  Feel free to judge me.) to see if I could review one of their nursing bras that was also good for pregnancy.  And ta-da!  They said YES!  And I have been, for the past 36 hours, in total, wonderful comfort thanks to this:

The Bravado Body Silk Seamless nursing bra.  It is soo comfy!  I haven’t worn a bra without wires in for-ev-ah, so I was a little nervous about that but WOW this gives plenty of support without underwire and it really is like a second skin.  I could not love it anymore.  I went through lots of nursing bras in the combined 36 months that I nursed Joshua and Sophie, and I never had one anywhere near this nice!  It’s got lots of rows of hooks on the back to expand with your expanding pregnancy/nursing bustline, and it has removable molded cups that put juuuuust the right of material between my skin and my shirt.  I like a wee bit of lining and this is perfect – plus, you can totally remove them if you don’t want them, or when you need extra room for nursing pads. Oh! And even though I am obviously not nursing yet – I went ahead and gave the clasps a try to see how easy they were to open and close with one hand. SO easy!  And they lie flat under your clothes.  This whole bra stays nice and invisible under your clothes.  I wore a pretty fitted tank top the other day and you couldn’t see anything underneath – it was perfect!

This bra comes in lots of pretty colors and I am DEFINITELY getting another one.  I love it so much that I can’t wait to try out all the other Bravado styles!

  1. I just wanted to add that the Bravado nursing bras stand up really well in the wash. I have 3 Bravados that I rotate through, and after 19 months of nursing (and counting), they still feel and support like new. My favorite is the Exquisite Nursing Bra. The lace makes me feel like I’m not wearing a nursing bra and the metal clips are really nice and sturdy.

  2. Thank you for opening my eyes to this product. I HATE, HATE, HATE my current nursing bras and am in need of something more comfortable for the girls. In almost my 8th week of breastfeeding, the thing that appeals to me about the Body Silk nursing bra is that it looks comfortable right from the start. No digging underwires, no bulky side fabric, no annoying clips on the back to rub on my shoulders…oh and I love the choice of colors—hello Berry Burst! While the price is more than I would normally pay, it seems like it would totally be worth it as I plan to nurse for many more months. Why skimp on something so important, right?
    I plan to place an order soon!! 🙂 I’ll let you know how it works out. Thanks Mommin’ It Up!! (Since I’m the first comment, do I get one free? You can call me a hoe too….lol)

  3. I think I may need to invest in some of these…gonna be nursing for at least another 6-9 months or so. My other nursing bras are worn out! I could use them in a few years again too if they hold up as well as everyone says they do!

  4. I’m dreading nursing again just because of the BRAS. Seriously, I couldn’t hate the bras I am forced to wear while nursing any more than I do – mostly for how they make me look (all that time spent nursing is a long time to look like a flopsy mess in all your shirts). I tried to buy a nursing bra with an underwire for more support, but it didn’t make it halfway thru one day, I about clawed it right off. Any of you who like this bra also have pretty big girls? As in DD or higher? My frugal self could part with the money for one super great bra! I am so glad to hear you say it has some lining in it too. I mean, hello, who doesn’t want that and why don’t they all have it??
