Giveaway- Bravado

 CLOSED
Winner #1 - The Bradley Family
 

Oh how we have been waiting and waiting for this giveaway! If you are a pregnant or nursing mom you may have heard of Bravado. This retailer creates the most comfortable and practical nursing bras for the pregnant and nursing mother.

I was sent the NEW Bliss Nursing Bra in the color Chai to test out for you! Because I am a nursing mother I am going to be able to give you a detailed review of my experience using Bliss (which I'm wearing this very moment!).


I'm a highly sensitive person. If something is too tight or doesn't feel right I'm incredibly uncomfortable. But if I could LIVE in this bra I would! I sleep in it, I go through my day in it, wear it working out... This is the greatest must-have for the pregnant and nursing woman.

Instead of giving you all the bra details (which you can read on the website) I just want to tell you about my experience. The bra is comfortable; it has four rows of hooks so you can adjust accordingly as you go through different phases of nursing.The biggest pro about the bra is that it is made for t-shirts. The frilly, lacy and gorgeous lingerie-type bras are fun but they're not very practical when it comes to going out to run errands. So while I love having those bras I also LOVE having a t-shirt bra that I can wear with anything.

Other bras I have used while nursing become too tight when my milk comes in and you can see my chest trying to burst through my bra right through my shirt. So embarrassing! I haven't had that issue with this bra. The cup fits me perfectly whether I am engorged or "deflated" for lack of better word because the cups stretch to conform to you.

Sublime- definitely on my wish list!

The clasps are super easy to undo and redo; I can do it all with one hand. And the bra just gives the best support and lift which is really important for overall breast health. Another thing I love about the bra is the back support. Some of my bras are really high on the back or cover almost my entire upper back which is NOT cool when I want to wear a shirt that reveals part of my upper back. The Bliss Nursing Bra instead supports you from the front and around your sides (goodbye back bulge!) but without reaching all the way up to the back of your neck!

Overall the experience has been absolutely amazing. This is not my first encounter with Bravado and I haven't had a single complaint yet. All the forums are abuzz about Bravado's nursing bras; it is the must-have bra for comfort, practicality, support and breastfeeding!

  7. I am in desperate need of some nursing bras! and I also am interested in trying the moisture-wick washable breast pads. I really am finding that I like reusable pads rather than disposables now.
