Introducing the Bravado Original Dove Heather Nursing bra. Designed for sizes 32-46 B-D, this Bravado Basic Nursing Bra can we worn both in the months before you give birth and, of course, during your nursing months.

Not sure which size nursing bra you need? Then this may be a super choice for you. With this bra, you would either pick Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large. So, rather than picking, for example, a 36c, you might pick a Medium. This means it is much easier to get your size right first time. It also means that, as your size changes, the bra should remain really comfortable. Not sure which size is right for you? Please see the table below! If you are a cup size bigger than a D-Cup then you may need the full-cup version of this bra.



We have been selling this nursing bra since 2007 and we recommend it very highly!

This nursing bra has also been designed to reduce the risk of Mastitis. It stretches and contracts to fit your breasts without becoming too tight if you are engorged.

What about the design of this nursing bra? The Original Basic bra has a distinct cross over cup design. It also features a sports-style back. This will give you upper-middle back support and will hold the shoulder straps in place – even while you are feeding!

The cups fully drop away from your breast when you feed your baby. This means that you and your baby get full skin-to-skin contact, as recommended by breastfeeding advisors. It is also easier to get a really comfortable fit thanks to the adjustable shoulder straps.

You may be pleased to know that this bra is also perfect as a sleep nursing bra. This means you can have a comfy nursing bra on throughout the night!

Why do our customers love the Bravado Basic nursing bra? It should offer you a lovely fit, it will help prevent mastitis and you can also wear it during the night! What's more, it is very supportive. We recommend this bra highly!

MATERIAL THICKNESS OF CUPS:
We try to rate how thick the cups are of each bra, so you are not surprised by this when the bra turns up! We rate this out of 5, so 1/5 is thin cups, 5 out of 5 is thick. We would rate the thickness of the cups of the cups of this bra as 3 out of 5. Medium thickness.

WIDTH OF BRA STRAPS
How wide are the straps of this nursing bra? We measured all of the sizes, and it remained consistent at 15mm. This width of 15mm remained the same the whole length of the bra strap. So, it does not get wider nearer the shoulder, but remains at 15mm the length of each strap. To see how this feels, have a measure of one of your existing bras that you have at home.

Material 49% cotton, 32% modal, 19% spandex/elastane

This is a “flexible sized” nursing bra…perfect for pregnancy and beyond…and highly recommended by us This means you don’t have to be exactly right when choosing your size. We tend to recommend “flexible sized” nursing bras for anyone who is pregnant through to when your baby is a few months old.

If you look in the “full description” you should see a chart with sizes on. Simply find your size within the chart and pick that to decide if you are Small, Medium, Large etc.? Base it on the size you are now.

Here are some more detailed guidelines on how your body and bra size may change

In your 2nd Trimester? Be aware that the band size around the 6th month is likely to be close to what you would be after delivery. But you need to leave room in the cups to grow. Unsure what size to pick? Have a look at our “flexible sized” nursing bras which cover several sizes which are much easier to fit. We have flexible sized nursing bras that should fit you from 30 inch to 46 inch backs, A-JJ Cups. If you happen to be a larger cup that JJ, please see our Royce nursing bras. Click here for our flexible sized nursing bras.

In your 3rd Trimester? Be aware that your band size will decrease after delivery, and should continue to decrease in the first few months of breastfeeding. You should also leave a little room in the cups. Again, at this stage we suggest choosing a “flexible sized” nursing bra that should remain comfortable as your size changes.

Right after you give birth: Be aware your band size is likely to decrease in the first few months of breastfeeding. When your milk comes in, your breasts will feel much fuller as well are firmer. During each day that fullness will fluctuate between feeds. Again, during this time we tend to recommend our “flexible sized” nursing bras, as these should remain a comfortable fit as your body changes.

When baby is a few months old: Your breast size typically peaks at around 3-4 months. Engorgement (where your breasts can become overly-full and a little painful) can be common. As you continue to breastfeed after the 6th month, your breast size will start to decrease and you should find your are rarely engorged. This is a good time to shop for a traditionally sized nursing bra (for example 36DD) as your size should have settled down by this point.
