Who said maternity lingerie had to be frumpy looking? Most maternity bras on the market for us mums-to-be nowadays have better shapes, are really comfy and designed to look good and feel good. (Finally!)
In my recent search I came across so many maternity lingerie brands; some names that I really liked and recognised, others that I hadn’t heard of, or didn’t like the look of. Most of the bras though looked amazing and seemed like they would feel comfy too. Maternity bras comes mainly in three types; non-nursing, nursing, and sleeping. I definitely want a nursing bra as I will be breastfeeding Baby Girl and will need something to see me through those booby-milk days but I want something that would be comfortable enough to fall asleep in too.
I really loved my Emma Jane nursing bra that was given to me at LO’s baby shower and I practically lived in it for the whole 6 months that I breastfed LO however it really unattractive and frumpy looking so this time, I just want something just a little bit “prettier”.
Here’s my wishlist of the nursing bras I’ve found online which I really like…
Heidi Klum Intimates
This nursing bra by Heidi Klum Intimates looks comfortable yet stylish. I love the black and cream colour because it’s just simple and the design is one that I think I would wear on a daily basis. Also, as it’s a nursing bra, it’ll see me through my breastfeeding days so no need to switch from a non-nursing to nursing bra.
I really love this bra by Hot Milk. It looks like my Emma Jane nursing bra that I had when I gave birth to LO which was sooo comfy but I’m not going to lie – it looked hideous and didn’t sit well under my clothes. However this one seems to look smoother and seamless so it shouldn’t be visible under my clothes. I love comfort and rate it more higher than looks so this bra will probably be my first nursing bra purchase.
This beautiful silk-soft stretch satin and lace bra by Amoralia looks absolutely amazing. The luxurious design doesn’t compromise the functional or practical aspects of the bra. The material is stretchy so it’ll mould and move with your body, not against it. So no chaffing underarms or irritated/itchy nipples and cleavage – woop woop! The bra comes in the black/cream version which is pretty but my favourite is the nude/cream colour.
This lovely bra from the Topshop Maternity collection. It’s a very simple looking maternity bra – a little cute albeit – and is very much a basic essential maternity bra. It’s the cheapest out of all the bras I’ve mentioned in this post which I am a little scared will reflect in the quality of the material. I mean, Topshop is my go-to place for clothing (especially denim jeans!) however for my maternity wear… I am not 100% sold on it yet. I will need to go to the shops to try it out and see. It may just surprise me!
Former yummy mummies, if you have any recommendations that you can offer me it will be greatly appreciated!
