Now that I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy, I am very excited to meet my baby. While I am not sure exactly how our family will adjust with a third baby, one thing I don’t have to question is whether or not I’ll breast feed. I loved nursing both of my boys and was so thankful when I discovered Bravado! Designs products when I had my first baby in 2006. Being bigger busted, Bravado saved me from non supportive and uncomfortable bras and their supreme nursing bra was my absolute favorite, although I’m sad it is no longer available.
Bravado recently sent me two other products to try, both of which are great during pregnancy and postpartum, including the Essential Nursing Bra Tank which comes in nine great shades and makes for a great layering piece!
With stunning style and a full bra inside (beautifully supporting up to a G cup), The Essential Nursing Bra Tank was designed to make you feel fabulous inside and out! A double molded, full support bra (not just a flimsy shelf “bra”!) that provides amazing support and beautiful shape.
I picked out the black tank so it will go well with everything. It is very soft and very comfortable and is great for sleeping in. This tank is perfect for using around the house and to keep my belly covered when I’m nursing (wahoo!) but it won’t work as well for me personally for outings unless the top of the tank is covered. The cut is just too low for me to feel comfortable. Because my cleavage is naturally shall we say, ample, this might not be an issue at all for someone smaller chested. I can still see myself picking up another one of these tanks to have around!
I also received the Bravado Original Nursing Bra- Double Plus Style in butterscotch to try out as well.
Available in 5 colors, The Original Nursing Bra has been recommended by Lactation Consultants for over 18 years. This cotton nursing bra is adapts to your changing shape making it perfect for pregnancy right through to nursing. Moms love to live and sleep in the Original Nursing Bra 24/7 – especially in the early stages when comfort is the key in your journey to breastfeeding success.
I wasn’t sure how this bra would live up to the Bravado Supreme bra I had in the past but I was pleasantly surprised. I thought that the almost sports bra like style wouldn’t work well for my larger chest but I found this bra extremely supportive and comfortable. I love the wide band at the base and find it very easy to sleep in.
The cups are easy to unclip and allow for super fast access for your nursing baby. As a double bonus, a proprietary Bra Conversion Kit (BCK), is now attached to the Bravado Nursing Bra and can be used to convert it to a “regular bra” once you have finished nursing. How awesome is that? This will definitely be the bra I bring to the hospital when I deliver!
The Essential Nursing Bra Tank retails for $49 while the Original Nursing Bra-Double Plus is $35. Both can be purchased directly from Bravado, on Amazon or check out their store locator for a retailer near you!
