2018 sees multi-award winning maternity lingerie brand, Bravado Designs, celebrate their 25th Birthday. The last 25 years have seen them support pregnant and breastfeeding mamas all over the world, and to celebrate they are going right back to where it all started by relaunching their first ever maternity and nursing bra, the Original Nursing Bra*.
Bravado asked if I would like to celebrate their birthday with them, and of course I said yes! They sent me two maternity & nursing bras, the Original Nursing Bra and their flagship Body Silk Seamless (along with some delicious popcorn which I obviously scoffed straight away!). Both bras come complete with Bravado’s statement ‘B’ one-handed nursing clips and full drop away cup for maximum ease when breastfeeding.
The Original Nursing Bra features Bravado’s heritage style that mums have loved since the beginning, but has been modernised to include a comfortable, wide bottom band and flat smooth racer-back for additional support and a sporty look. This wire-free bra is made from ultra-soft, breathable cotton-modal fabric blend. The bra is available as standard in cup sizes B- D, there is a full cup design for further support for us larger cup sizes DD-E/G.
The lack of wire and the cool cotton make the Original Nursing bra super comfortable to wear, while still providing fantastic support and propping up my heavy boobies nicely! The sports back and high cup does mean that this bra is highly visible when paired with certain types of clothing.
I also received the Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra in a gorgeous Dusted Peony colour. The Body Silk Seamless features luxuriously soft fabric moulds to your changing shape, so that you can wear it throughout pregnancy and nursing. This is also wire free and super comfortable, while providing all the support that you need, but not quite as much support as the Original.
I can confidentially say that I will be wearing both of these bras a lot throughout my pregnancy journey and beyond. I love that both bras come with a bra conversion kit so that they can easily be adapted into regular bras once my nursing journey has ended.
