So how practical is it? The cups are moulded to offer you great support and a smooth silhouette. This bra would make an ideal T-shirt bra! The maternity clips are easy to open with one hand, allowing you to open them and hold your baby safely at the same time. It also has no underwires, and as experts believe that an underwired nursing bra can lead to the development of mastitis, this offers a good alternative.
So why do we like this raspberry Anita 5075 bra? With the moulded cups it offers a great shape, amazing colour and the seamless design should not irritate sensitive breasts. It is also the lowest price nursing bra from Anita!
We want to make sure you know exactly what the bra is like so you are not surprised when it arrives, so here are some quick questions and answers from us studying the bra, out of the packet, in depth.
Is this bra underwired? No
Does this bra have a “modesty panel” that covers the top of your breasts (i.e when the cups are open does it have material to help make it more discreet behind the cups? This is also called an “A-Frame nursing bra”. No it has a side sling of material
What is the “side sling” like? A piece of material which we think is quite stretchy and goes under the breast
Is this bra padded? No
Does it have a pre-formed or molded cups? No
How stretchy is the fabric on the cups? We think it has a really nice stretch to it
Does the bra have removable foam inserts in the cups? No
Would it be suitable as a T-shirt nursing bra? A little bit! The material is really very smooth but it is not a true “T-shirt nursing bra in that it is not padded or molded
Would it be suitable as a Sleep nursing bra? Not really
Does this bra have an option to buy matching briefs? No
Anita sizes work a little differently to UK sizes ...especially after D cup...here are how they match up:
B cup in Anita is B Cup in UK size
C cup in Anita is C Cup in UK size
D cup in Anita is D Cup in UK size
E cup in Anita is DD Cup in UK size
So, for example, if you would normally wear a 34DD bra in other manufacturers, we suggest you pick and Anita size 34E
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 2 out of 5.
WIDTH OF BRA STRAPS
How wide are the straps of this nursing bra? We measured a B cup bra and it came out as 17mm (compare this to one of your own bras to see how wide this feels). The straps then rise to a width of 19mm once you get to an C cup and above. So B cup, it is 17mm, then from C-E it is 19mm.
