Bravado Designs nursing bra review and giveaway Ends 7/26 (closed)

CONGRATULATIONS #70 Simplemerry



About the product: The Bliss nursing bra pictured above is the nursing bra I chose to review.
As stated on the Bravado Designs website: The Bliss Nursing Bra provides elegant shape and exceptional fit for everyday use with Bravado's proprietary Flexi-FitTM support channel. Featuring smooth, seamless and molded foam cups for discretion and comfort, a low neckline, and a luxurious satiny finish, Bliss disappears under clothing so all they see is your beautiful silhouette, and all you feel is blissfully comfortable and totally fabulous!

Features • An innovative firm, but flexible under-breast Flexi-FitTM support system that offers remarkable shape and lift, while maintaing comfort and good breast health.

• Foam cups that are also seamless, offering discretion to hide nipples and breast pads, as well as having a seamless appearance under even fitted clothing.

• Satiny fabric that clothing just glides over, a delicate center front detail, and embroidered straps that offer subtle, yet stunning design elements.

• Gentle stretch in the cups to grow and contract with your changing shape, while maintaining support.

• Easy nursing features, including cups that drop fully and easily away from the breast for skin-to-skin contact with baby, and signature Bravado B-clips that lie flat under clothing and provide one-handed access.



About the company: From their site: It all began with a leopard-print bra and 2 moms...

That first leopard-print bra was worn for 48 hours straight, and is now called the Original Nursing Bra - still our best-seller, over 15 years later!
From those small beginnings with an idea around a kitchen table, Bravado quickly built a strong reputation as having comfortable, stylish, and quality nursing bras. Lactation Consultants, Midwives, Childbirth Educators and others in the healthcare community quickly started recommending our products to their moms, and still do to this day.
Now, Bravado Designs' products are worn and loved by moms worldwide, including celebrity moms like Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Garner and Jessica Alba. Although many things have changed since our beginnings all those years ago, one thing never will: our commitment to bolster and enhance the self-esteem of pregnant and nursing moms.
Basically, we get it. Why? Well, it certainly helps that Bravado is owned
by two moms: Kathryn From, our fearless leader and CEO (proud mama of two), and Shery Leeder, who has 2 boys and is a Certified Lactation Consultant herself. We wear test our products on (literally) hundreds of actual pregnant and nursing moms every year, to make our bras perfect to the finest detail. We use real moms in our photography, because we don't think we need models to make breastfeeding beautiful. We're a green company and we make product donations in our community - not because it's the 'in' thing, but because it's the right thing. Because we not only want to be the brand on your bra, but the company you're proud to wear and tell your friends about.

My Review: The Bliss nursing bra is comfortable and supportive which is good for either just having had a baby or later down the road. I chose this bra because it is described as the perfect t-shirt bra and I always wear t-shirts. I like that the bra cups have a little stretch to them allowing them to always fit since during breast feeding you always have a fluctuation in your size. I like that the cups retain their shape too. The signature Bravado B-clips are suppose to lie flat under clothing which I found to be true. I think the Bravado Designs nursing bra is well thought out and would be a great addition to any nursing mom's wardrobe. I like knowing one of the owner's overseeing these bra's is a lactation consultant so you know that they are probably designed well for breastfeeding.

To Buy: go to www.bravadodesigns.com
The Bliss nursing bra retails for $54.00
