It's hard to recommend bras to other moms because not all moms (and not all boobs) are created equal. Some moms like underwire; others hate it. Some moms want padding to "enhance"; others want to minimize. Some prefer the snug fit of sports bras; others don't like wearing bras at all. It's really a very personal thing.
So I will "qualify" the coming review by saying that you should always read the "specs" of bras before selecting one when you shop online.
Without further ado, I'd like to "introduce" you to Melinda G, a company that specializes in "comfy bras, beautiful bras...for beautiful nursing moms and their beautiful babies."
Melinda G was kind enough to send me several bras to review and share with you.
My favorite style is the Tee-Shirt Soft-Cup Nursing Bra (Style #2115 - see left). The cups are seamless and supportive - and there are no wires to "pinch" or "poke" or "smoosh."
I also like the Glorious Contour Tee-Shirt Soft-Cup Nursing Bra (Style #2160). The bra is similar to the #2115 style, except that it has "deep cleavage" and "subtle enhancement" - not exactly something I need right now, but I do appreciate the soft support.
Both bras are soft, supportive, and simple to use.
Melinda G bras are available in sizes 32-42, B-F - depending on the style of your choosing - and retail between $30-$45. You can find Melinda G nursing bras and sleepwear at a variety of brick-and-mortar baby specialty shops...or online through your favorite nursingwear distributor.
YOUR TURN: What company/brand makes your favorite nursing bra? What "qualities" do you look for in a nursing bra when you go nursing bra shopping?
