Re: let's talk bravado nursing bras

I'll have some too.

Well, personally, I have a few of the Bravado Plus bras for wearing around the house. You can't beat them for being comfy and super easy to nurse in. Not the greatest t-shirt bras though. I have tried the regular, but like the plus better.

I have one of the new microfiber Lifestyles bras and love it for support and comfort, much trimmer than the original bras. It's cute, feminine, fabric feels great on the skin...the only downside is very thin cups.

I buy mine at http://www.sierrablue.ca, they have a US site too I think. Most Bravado products on the site are free shipping, somes come with bonus nursing pads, I've purchased there several times and shipping has always been prompt.

Re: let's talk bravado nursing bras

I think these are the ones I like best http://store.yahoo.com/sierrabluecan...olbluefp1.html

I bought them a while ago & can't remember where though (sorry). About to sell mine though since my boobs are too big for that size now.

It's good for a lift under clothing - nice support -- and it's discreet in the sense that the bra itself is silky and trim so it doesn't catch your clothes if that makes sense.

BUT the cups are fairly thin, so if you tend to protrude (as do I ) then you'll probably want to get some Lilypadz or those silicone daisies or something for when you're wearing a thin shirt.

Did I mention how great this bra feels on your skin, though?? Silky! And the lace edging isn't at all itchy like some can be...this is my "pick-me-up" bra, makes me feel pretty! LOL

Re: let's talk bravado nursing bras

If you are set on buying a Bravado, I recommend you try the YES! bra from ebay seller breastfeedingisbest. They are a knock-off of the Bravado brand and are less than half the price of the Bravado. I have one Bravado and two of the YES! bras, and they are great for at home or under thicker shirts. I like the YES! bras better than the Bravados because of better clasps and the band under the breast does not fold.

I hope this helps.

Wow, those are a GREAT price...think I'll have to try the YES bra...I didn't realize I could get them in Canada. LOL I have to be careful what I buy from the US or I pay customs fees...
