What’s The Best Bra To Wear When Pregnant Or Breastfeeding?

Throughout your pregnancy and right through to after your baby is born, your body is changing. Finding the right maternity and nursing bras to fit your growing form is so important to ensure that you are both comfortable, but also supported. If you’re looking to find the best bra to wear during pregnancy or breastfeeding, you’ve come to the right place.

For over 25 years, Bravado Designs has been helping pregnant and nursing mamas find the right nursing bras to suit their journey, with their range dedicated to comfort and style. Bravado believes that just because you are nursing, it doesn’t mean you need to compromise on fashionable underwear! Bravado knows that every mum is different, which is why each of their styles is designed with real women in mind, of all shapes and sizes!

We’ve included a rundown of the Bravado collection below so you can find a style that is ideal for your maternity wardrobe…

If you’re looking for comfort and easy open and close fastenings – Body Silk Seamless

The ultimate seamless, comfortable nursing bra, The Body Silk Seamless is a perfect choice for everyday wear. Designed to be worn throughout pregnancy right through to nursing, the luxuriously soft fabric moulds to your changing shape. Featuring Bravado’s signature ‘B’ nursing clips, which open with one hand, this bra is ideal for supporting breastfeeding as well as that all-important skin-to-skin contact for new mums. The Body Silk Seamless is also available in Full Cup sizing options for cup sizes F-GG, for larger busts.

With all the great features of the much-loved Body Silk Seamless, Bravado’s latest launch, the Sheer, offers a stunning twist on the iconic nursing bra with the feel of delicate lingerie combined with the nursing functionality Bravado is best known for.
