It’s always been said that beauty comes at a price, and such is the case with the Bella Materna Women’s Padded Nursing Bra #1221. Let’s state the obvious right up front. It’s pricey for most, costing between $58 and $65. So, what do you get for the money? You get a nursing bra that looks like a regular t-shirt bra.
You get a bra that covers the nipples well, so they don’t poke through the mesh. It’s comfortable, offers support, doesn’t bind and lasts many months looking like it is still brand new.
Comfort is the most important feature in any nursing bra. Nursing is a time when you’re uncomfortable anyway. This bra helps by giving you a bit of normalcy with its looks and comfort for a time when your body doesn’t feel like your own. After months of living life in a fashion you’re not used to, this bra allows you to look nice in your clothes once again, move around in directions the body didn’t go before and sleep comfortably for the first time in ages.

Designed as a tee shirt bra, the Materna #1221 can actually be worn with just about anything and it is a no show through bra. Its materials are 72% nylon and 28% Lycra, which gives you a stretchy feel and cups that expand and contract as you feed. It also comes with a patented flexywire system that makes nursing comfortable all the day long. It absorbs leakage that slips out and dries quickly, keeping moisture away from the body.
Additionally, it has normal looking straps that fit nicely under tank tops, instead of the thick industrial strength looking straps that seem to typify the nursing bra industry. And, perhaps most importantly, it is okeo-tex 100 certified to be toxin free and very easy to take care of with machine washing, not fading or pilling, either. This bra gives America back its pride as it’s one of the best nursing bras in the marketplace and it is still made in the USA.
Is it perfect? While close in the eyes of most users, there are some complaints that have been registered against it. Some reviewers have stated the band sizes run small and conversely, the cup size runs big. Still others comment that the back mesh material strikes them as scratchy, making the bra uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. Lastly, it’s been noted that the cups only open half the way down, causing the mom to need to pull down on the fabric and nurse at the same time. This caused problems for some. One user said “it exceeds my expectations as for fit (it seems to run normally), but my only complaint is the gold rings for adjustments…click here to read the full review
Available colors are black, white, nude and blush (a very light pink/white)
The last thing a woman returning to work after maternity leave wants is everyone looking at her and knowing right away she’s a nursing mom. This bra alleviates that problem, allowing the mom to feel sexy or confident about her appearance at a time when she has to fake it, until she makes it.
It received a 3.9 out of 5 stars
Because the bra is expensive, a mom may be only able to buy one or two of these bras, making do until she has finished nursing her child. With this in mind, the bras last long and can be washed often to avoid having to buy a multitude of bras. Just remember, you can buy quality one time or buy cheap many times. The end result is the same amount of money spent. So, if you’re going to spend the money anyway, wouldn’t you rather enjoy the comfort during the journey?

Breast feeding provides countless valuable nutrients and immunity benefits for babies and creates an indescribable bond between mother and child. During those first weeks of your newborn’s life, you want to witness and make mental documentation of every miraculous second of your time with your new baby. The last thing you want to think about is discomfort, irritation and frustration.
For mothers who choose to breast feed their infants, the right nursing bra can make all the difference. The Leading Lady Light Control Molded Sports Nursing Bra provides all the comfort and features you need, to keep your mind on your baby and off of readjusting and resituating your bra and yourself.
This Leading Lady style 4388 is composed of a durable, stretch cotton micro fiber blend. It offers adjustable wide straps for shoulder comfort and to alleviate red marks and creases. The back features three column, two row hook and eye style closures and pliable back straps, eliminating the “cutting” effect.
Possibly the most important feature of any bra is the cup. Any nursing mother knows that trying to position your baby while fighting with your bra can be a mentally and physically taxing experience, especially during those middle of the night feedings. Mom can become frustrated and heartbroken while baby grows hungry and impatient, diminishing the bonding experience. This nursing bra features virtually effortless one hand release flaps for nursing ease in any location or situation, and the flaps can be conveniently tucked away until baby has finished his meal.
There are no wires to poke, prod and bruise your flesh, but there are built in inner slings for added support. Lactation consultants recommend wearing a well fitting bra, even at night, to support the breasts and to lessen painful engorgement. This bra is comfortable enough, even for night wear.
The cups also feature a light inner lining that helps to avoid embarrassing moments by preventing leakage from showing through; furthermore, this bra can be used in conjunction with nursing pads for extra protection. Made of soft, scratch free material, the cups help ease the pain of sore, irritated nipples.
For those inevitable times when you can not, for whatever the reason may be, feed your baby right away, the full cups stretch slightly to accommodate swelling. Additionally, the firm fit of the bra helps to relieve the misery of engorgement.
Customers have sent in glowing reviews for this bra. The most common praise pertains to comfort; the soft, wide straps and the flexible back hold up well without cutting into the skin. The cups mold to the body, providing shape and support while not adding to the distress associated with sore, tender breasts. Another commendation is the ease with which the flaps can be opened and closed, even with one hand.
Complaints are few and far between, with the main criticism being lack of support. As with any bra, though, not all sizes, styles and types work well for all ladies. For the most part, customers who have tried this nursing bra are thrilled with the quality, fit, support and functionality of this product. Several of these customers have bought, or plan to buy, more like it.

Women nursing their babies need comfort and this bra delivers it in spades. Because many nursing specialists recommend women who are nursing to wear their bras all night, it can be difficult to find one that works both day and night. However, the Hot Milk bras are comfortable to sleep in and look sexy for the husband. Additionally, it can be worn during the day under tanks and low cut dresses with great results and equal comfort. Other positive comments about the bra include stretchy cups that fit both before and after feedings or pumping.
With many feminine, pretty bras, the problem women find is flimsy construction. Some fall apart after a few washings or lose their stretchiness. With a nursing bra, this can be disastrous. Luckily, this bra is well constructed, without looking like an institution maiden’s bra. Another common problem found with nursing bras is the lack of small band sizes accompanied by large cup sizes. Hot Milk attacks this problem head on, offering sizes 32B-38H 40C-42H. The bra is easy to open with one hand and easily snaps back in place when finished.
Cost is always a consideration when buying a bra and this bra comes in at a middle of the road price. It is priced between $35 and $59, and while not discount store priced, it’s not a top of the line cost either. Many buyers suggest you buy one of these for pretty occasions and a cheaper bra for casual times.
As the above suggests, there are a great many praises to accompany this bra, but one has to realize that no bra is perfect. This bra does have some drawbacks, at least to some customers. Some feel the lace is too itchy; some have no problem with it. Others feel the bra doesn’t look nice under clothes, causing a wrinkly effect. Click here to read more customer feedback.
Nursing a baby is a perfectly natural thing, but the way our bodies react to it isn’t always pretty. With a quality bra, we can feel like ourselves once again after the ravages of childbirth have taken their toll. It’s easy to fall into the trap of spending all our money on the baby and things to fix up the nursery, but it’s time to spend money on you, when it comes to a quality bra.

Many nursing moms are looking for the support and easy access of a nursing bra with the style and complete coverage of a tank top. They have found both with the Bravado! Essential Nursing Bra Tank. It is cute, as well as practical, and has received glowing reviews from its users.
The tank top itself is composed of cotton and spandex for softness and comfort while stretching in all the right places, as your body size and shape change. This makes it an excellent choice for all stages of pregnancy through post partum.

The ruched bust adds style to the comfort and practicality, creating an adorable look as a maternity top or a nursing top, and many customers vow that they will wear it even beyond the nursing stage. The full length of the tank provides full belly coverage. Some moms are a little self conscious about their post partum tummy, but this top hides it all very well. For nursing in public, this tank provides coverage that nursing covers may not, adding an element of confidence and relaxation to the breast feeding experience.
Additionally, this nursing tank is extremely versatile. It can be worn while exercising at the gym, shopping, taking baby for a walk and going out to dinner, as well as sitting at home.

The bra is made of polyester, cotton and spandex. Lined with double sided fabric, the cups of the bra are soft and gentle on the breasts. The cotton inner lining cushions the breasts and offers a soothing surface for those sore, cracked nipples while the polyester and spandex outer lining provide lift, natural shape and firm support, to help ease painful engorgement.
Both the tank and the bra are held up with thin, cushiony shoulder straps that hold you up without discomfort, and the product stands up well through washing and drying.
Any mom will tell you, though, that in a nursing situation, beauty, style and comfort are nothing if the product lacks practicality. With the Bravado! Essential Nursing Bra Tank, this is not an issue. The bra features easy to open clips for complete breast feeding access.
In short, this nursing tank is pretty and comfortable with a soft, supportive built in bra and effortlessly opened flaps for easy feeding. The coverage of the shirt hides after baby bellies well. It looks like a regular tank top, so no one will know you are wearing a functional nursing top.
The only customer complaint is that this tank provides no protection from leakage, but this product can be used with nursing pads in order to avoid milk stains. Most moms choose to use them anyway, regardless of the amount of padding inside, and the shirt itself amply hides any evidence of the pads.
Aside from that, customers are thrilled with this product, some exclaiming that it is the best nursing tank on the market. Confidence, comfort, support, shape, coverage, function and being able to breast feed with ease, whether in public or at home; what more could a mom ask for?

Is it wrong to pick a nursing bra simply because it doesn’t look like a nursing bra? If so, we’re wrong, but if not, we’ve found a fantastic buy. If you’re looking for a bra that offers some smaller bands but larger cups and a pretty design, the Anita Maternity nursing bra #5041 sure fills the bill. Offering moulded, seamless cups that actually feel nice on chafed sore breasts, this bra surprises those who think an underwire bra is uncomfortable. Quite the contrary, it offers the much needed support new moms need as well as comfort doing everyday activities like exercising or picking up around the house.

- Pretty Stretch Lace Cups
- Kwik Klip and Anita Memo Feeding Memorizer
- Available colors: black, skin, white
- Soft lace with microfleece on the skin

Taking a look at the positive features of this wonder nursing bra, the first thing you notice is how pretty it is. It comes in skin (Nude), white and black with lacy, stretch cups. It looks fantastic on the body and even better beneath your clothes. It makes a woman feel pretty again, after long months of weight gain. Clothes hang right, and you simply feel good again beneath the clothes. The straps are comfortable and fit beneath tank tops. Now, on to more practical features of this bra.
First of all, it has a cool Anita Maternity Memo to mark the side last used for breastfeeding, which makes it easier on the mom who has a great deal on their mind. Next, it comes in a wide array of sizes, including Nude: B, C 32-46; D, E 32-44; F 32-42. White: B, C 34-46; D, E 34-44; F 34-42. It also has a KwikKlip that makes unsnapping a breeze, quick and easy, just as it should be. Lastly, the bra is comfortable, making it a breeze to wear if you’re going to the gym, back at work or enjoying life at home. Additionally, it washes well, needing no special attention.
All products, regardless of how good they are, still have some drawbacks. This bra is no exception. While it’s a beautiful bra with lace cups, this also means the nipples are not covered well and will stick out or show through. If you still wear nursing pads, this won’t be a problem for you. Additionally, the cups come fitting sizes C-F, quite the difference. There’s extra material that must be rolled down if you’re on the smaller end of that scale. Finally, let’s face it. It’s pretty expensive. With an average cost between $45 and $65, it definitely costs a pretty penny. But if you think of it as an everyday, must have item, the price becomes more manageable.
While it’s tempting to buy the cheap nursing bras that many discount stores offer, a nursing mother deserves comfort during this time in her life. Don’t skimp on your bra. Yes, it is pricey, but you get what you pay for here. It’s comfortable, easy to use and looks great too. When ordering it online, you will often find less expensive prices than you will buying it in stores, so be sure to shop around prior to purchasing. You may also decide it’s a smart idea to buy two bras, one pre-delivery and one post. This will be much more comfortable than buying one size for both times. If possible, try it on in one of the retail stores, then look for the same model online to save on money.[...]

The material is thick but lacks padding, so you may want to use nursing pads for a little extra assurance against leakage and unsightly milk stains.

Most of the satisfied users of this bra rave about how comfortable this nursing bra is and would love to buy more of them.
The Elomi Smoothing Molded Nursing Bra has received a few complaints. As with almost any bra, the size and style just are not right for everyone.
