I’m very proud to be a Bravado Designs Mama for 2014! Throughout the year I’ll be sent samples of new products and new colors.
If you’ve ever attempted breastfeeding, you know the ups and downs that you’ll encounter. Breastfeeding can seriously wear you down. Most days I feel completely gross, sitting at home in my chair all day basically just switching Owen from one side to the other. I read a post last week from another mom that said she wasn’t sure why people needed to wear nursing bras and I was completely blown away by it. She said you should be able to easily do it wearing your normal bra. Clearly, she never nursed a baby full-time. I’m sure that most breastfeeding moms feel very similar to the way I feel. We need to feel like a woman again, not a milk machine. Bravado! Designs allows me feel like a woman, but allows me to be nurse my baby whenever, wherever I need to.
Their bras are pricey, but totally worth it! For nursing bras, I’m a firm believer in “you get what you pay for”.
The Essential Embrace is my favorite nursing bra that I have as of now, but I’m sure throughout this year that I’ll fall in love with a few new ones. This bra does not have underwire, but you’d swear it does because of the support it has. Nursing mamas know how important skin to skin is for babies. The Essential Embrace has a full drop away cup which allows for maximum skin to skin contact. The fabric is patent pending Bravado Dynatex™ fabric, which combines premium cotton and luxurious microfiber. It’s like all of my pre-pregnancy bras and it makes me feel amazing!
A bra with the right fit (and holds the ladies up where they’re supposed to) really can make your entire day.
Another reason why I love Bravado Designs is their supportive community. You can find great information for any stage of pregnancy or nursing on their website.
I look forward to sharing some new products with you as we continue our breastfeeding journey!
