As the saying goes, all nursing women need 2 bras, one to wear and one in the
drawer. However, if you are like most women, you don't do the wash every day or
even every other day, so you may need a more than three bras in your wardrobe.
Here are 2 bra styles that I recommend to just about every nursing mom:
Bravado's Original Nursing Bra is the perfect first bra to take to the hospital
and wear in the early weeks and months after you have your baby. This bra has
been around for years and comes in just about every size that exists. The Basic
and Plus sizes are a cross over design with a T-shirt Y back. You can pull down
to nurse or unsnap the front straps. The back design is great for 24 hour wear
with no closures or hooks to irritate your back when lying down. The Double Plus
for larger cup sizes fits straight across the front for added support and
nursing access is from the snaps on the front straps.
The Original Nursing Bra is very comfortable with a cotton/spandex blend fabric
that stretches and contracts without getting too tight if breasts are engorged.
This bra provides good support without underwires while accommodating a variety
of sizes to your changing breasts and chest which make it an excellent choice
for your first nursing bra. It is important not to wear underwires in the early
weeks when nursing as they can constrict your rapidly changing breast and cause
mastitis. Engorged breasts in particular need fabric that can easily expand to
comfortably fit without restricting circulation.
The Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing bra is another style that stretches to
fit a variety of cup and chest sizes while offering a very comfortable fit. This
bra comes with removable molded foam pads that serve the multi purpose of
molding your shape and hiding nipples while protecting you from showing any
leakage. The seamless buttery soft fabric is very comfortable for sensitive skin
and extended wear while offering very good support. This bra looks very good
under your clothes and does not look like a cumbersome nursing bra and has easy
to use one handed nursing clips.
Each of these bras comes in multiple colors to add a little variety to your
nursing bra wardrobe. I suggest buying all three in multiple colors so you have
enough bras to get your through the week and you have enough variety in colors
to keep your lingerie fashion more interesting. Bravado also makes matching
briefs in all colors in both the Original Bikini Panty which fits under the
belly and the Original Brief that fits over the belly and can also be rolled
down. Both styles are designed to fit both before and after you are pregnant.
