This was the only nursing bra I bought in more than one size. Now that i am buying uk brands such as panache and freya, curvy kate etc I find that I need to size up 2-3 cup sizes. I was able to wear the bra happily for at least a year with heavy use before the band gave out on me.
I bought this while pregnant, the first of my bands below a 34/36 so at the time I thought it fit great! But now....I fit 28 bands pretty consistently and this one will now stretch to 38-40" without much trouble so while it was comfortable for pregnancy there is no way it actually fits me properly. It's been worn a lot but the band was always at least a size to big.
Materials are very comfortable, soft and stretchy. Cups are US sized and have a lot of give which is great. Nursing clips are easy to use. The lace cups are attractive, very ...thin (definately won't hide nipples/ nursing pads without a liner of some sort) and don't show under shirts but overall it's a very basic nude bra.
Straps are quite wide at the shoulder, again comfortable but they show out of necklines easily. If you fit in the size range (definately go down at least one band size, every review I read said the band runs big) it's a nice maternity/nursing bra. Very much built for function and comfort. I don't think it would be that supportive for large cups but as this doesn't truly fit me at all, I can't judge.
It has been washed and worn a LOT so overall I would say it's held up very well besides the stretchy band. Read more 128 more words
Wearing for the first time today. First impressions - Fabric under wire rolls/tucks under and digs. Seems like this is a common complaint browsing around online. - Great job lifting and separating my wide root, close together knockers. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> - Arm pit feels odd... but I can't tell yet if it is wire or material that is causing the issue.
This was my favourite nursing bra! (So glad I abandoned the soft cup Bravados!) It was easy to manipulate the clips, was very comfortable, but the best thing about it compared to my Medela underwire nursing bras is that this was was cut low enough that I could wear tees that had scoop or v necklines with it! I do wish it had come in black, though ...
