Comfy Mommy: Bravado Bra Review

As a nursing mother I find it hard to come by bras that I like for comfort, let alone any that look good too.  Earlier this year I wrote to you about my favorite bra, the Bravado Bliss.  I have been so happy with this bra.  I routinely choose it over all of my other bras, so much so that I now own two to alternate.  When Bravado offered me the chance to try the Body Silk Seamless, I couldn’t wait.  The fact that it came in a fun berry color made it all the more enticing.

When I first looked at the Body Silk Seamless, I was hesitant.  It is a soft structured bra.  As you may recall, I was an underwire loving girl – that it until the Bliss proved me wrong and showed me that a non underwire can give support, shape and comfort.  With that in mind, I dove into trying out the Body Silk.

The Body Silk is made of a soft stretchy material.  While it is giving and form fitting, it offers supportive, thick channels around the band and around the cup area, giving it shape without losing comfort.  In addition to being a soft cup, the Body Silk has pockets inside each cup that contain removable molded foam cups.  I used these for a while at first, but on the larger bra size, I find that they could be larger to provide enough coverage.  I don’t find that the bra loses anything by not having these cups in place, though they are great for hiding nursing pads.

I’d also love to note is how much I love the Berry Burst color that this is available in (in addition to Ivory, Black & Butterscotch).  It is such an adorable color.  It complements several of my night clothes and when I hop into bed I feel ‘cute’, which is a nice confidence booster.

Like many nursing mothers, I wear a larger cup size and I find that this bra offers enough support for me to be comfortable in.  I adore it as a sleeping bra.  It is so comfortable and perfect for lounging around, sleeping, housekeeping, etc.  For going out, I prefer my Bliss, as it offers more structure and modesty.  I have been very happy having the two of these bras for my days and nights.

Bravado! Designs has been so kind in offering one of you a chance to try out my favorite bra, the Bliss.  You are going to love this bra!  Also be sure to sign up for their newsletter for exclusive offers, breastfeeding information and more.  You can find the link on their homepage!
