I’ve got to tell you, breastfeeding in a nursing bra is a lot more comfortable than breastfeeding without one; it’s also a lot less clumsy. The maternity bra makes it simple to breastfeed after your baby is born. Its cup unties, so you don’t have to take off your bra completely. Practical when breastfeeding in public or even at home! In one click, the cap is put back in place and you go back to your occupations. Simple, effective, everything we like when we have a baby!
I should know because I didn’t use one for the first few months of nursing. Now that I’ve had nearly 3 years of experience as a ‘nursing bra pro,’ I can confidently say that the Bravado body silk seamless nursing bra is the best.
How do I know? Well, I’ve heard and read about it, and I’ve now tried it.
As you can probably imagine, I was pretty chuffed when I was asked to check it out; even more when it arrived.
Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra – First Impressions
I liked what I saw … really neat and inviting packaging. My word, what exquisite colors … so gorgeously rich in depth, and appealing to the eyes. You should have seen the big smile on my face when I looked in the mirror with it on.

Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra – My Experience
During my first pregnancy, I learnt that you need to be measured every few months for the right bra size to support your growing breasts. As an eco-friendly savvy saver, big on getting good value for money, I wasn’t really keen on buying bras I could only use for a few months.
So stumbling on seamless wireless bras was a dream come true; they seamlessly (no pun intended) adjust to your changing breasts from pregnancy to breastfeeding, and beyond.
Bravado has a clear sizing guide on their website, as well the phone number and working hours of their certified bra fitters. I however decided to get measured for my Bravado bra size on the high street when I was around 25/26 weeks pregnant … just because … well … it was a kinda treat, I suppose.
I am impressed with how comfortable and supportive this bra is; so much better than the cheaper seamless one I’d been using (from a different brand). I must also say that it’s made of really good quality material.

Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra – Overall
I’m really thankful for this bra; they are now my seamless bra staple … so comfy for my expanding pregnancy rib cage whilst breastfeeding my toddler. This seamless bra is super gentle for sleeping also during the day a great relief for sore nipples. It lifts the breasts minimally. But sufficient. It’s not surprising that celebrity mums like Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Cate Blanchett, Pink Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Garner, Miranda Kerr, and others consider it a nursing bra to have.
