Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra - A Review

I've been nursing Isla for just over 6 months now, and I'm incredibly proud of that. When I was pregnant I decided I wanted to have a go at breastfeeding but didn't get too prepared just in case it didn't quite go to plan. I therefore only purchased a 2 pack of nursing bras from Mothercare and that was that. Obviously six months down the line I'm still nursing however I still only have one of those two nursing bras, which aren't the most comfortable and one other, wash one wear one. I really could do with getting some more as our journey is going so well.

So, when I was asked if I would like to try out the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra I jumped at the chance. I've heard so many good things about Bravado so was keen to see if they lived up to expectations. I loved the look of this bra which is available in five colours and two festive colours, one of which I was sent. I was sent the cherry to review, I love bright coloured items however they don't go well under some clothing items.

I was readily prepared with my current sizing after being measured and using an online guide to check as we all know how much you can change in this department. Two online calculators I recommend are Bra Guru's Better Bra Campaign and Bra Size Calculator. However, this bra is different, there are four sizes S, M, L and XL although at first I wasn't convinced this was a good thing but I can assure you I think it is. Offering sizing like this means the bra could actually last you longer and still remain comfortable.

When the nursing bra arrived I was keen to try it out and upon opening and feeling the texture I couldn't wait to wear it. It was incredibly soft feeling quite silky and certainly felt lovely on. It comes with removable molded foam cups providing a lining cover for unsightly nursing pads and helping to cover those nipples up. I love these cups as it increases confidence for me which I struggle with.

After my concerns with the sizing it fitted beautifully and was very comfortable, it didn't dig over the shoulders or pull, and the clips lay flat against my skin proving a good fit. After wearing it for a full day I felt as comfortable as the first hour I put it on.

I absolutely love this Bravado nursing bra and only wish I had discovered them earlier within my nursing journey. It's incredibly comfortable as well as being perfect for after the nursing days, which I'm glad of. What I mean by this is that it comes complete with a conversion kits making it simple for you to convert it to a 'normal bra' after your nursing days - genius huh? So for those of you like me who were penny pinching it's perfect! 

Priced at just £30, I feel this nursing bra is excellent value for money. I would highly recommend this to pregnant mamas who are considering feeding as well as those who are feeding. 

Please Note: I received this nursing bra for the purpose of this review, however this does not influence my decisions. All opinions and images are my own.
