Would you prefer a really comfortable black nursing bra? If so then we can recommend the Bravado Body Silk Seamless nursing bra.
It should also give you a really nice shape too thanks to the moulded foam cups.
We think you may also really love the buttery-soft fabric...this helps the bra to "melt" onto your body. It is also virtually invisible under clothing.
Health professionals tend to suggest that if possible, you should avoid underwires during your nursing months. So you may be pleased to know that this bra is wirefree.
If you have not yet given birth, then this bra may be a good choice, as it is also suitable as a pre-natal bra.

A straight strip of stretchy material

How to verify the Nursing Bra Shop....
"I have never heard of the Nursing Bra Shop....how can I find out what the service is like?"
Simple - ask any online mums forums you are on if anyone has used us. We always STRONGLY URGE
you to check on us in any Facebook breastfeeding groups or other maternity or mums groups such as Mumsnet etc. Maybe ask if anyone has ever used the Nursing Bra Shop? What was our service like?
Here are some places to ask questions about the Nursing Bra Shop:
- Facebook breastfeeding groups

But please ask the question in any forums. 89% Of UK mothers have never heard of the Nursing Bra Shop. Asking forums is a good way of checking on us. Don't take our word for it....ask other mothers who may have used us!
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 a Small, Medium and Large cup bra and it came out as 15mm (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 Extra Large and XXL. So from S-L, it is 15mm, then from XL and above it is 19mm. Each strap has the same length, all the way along. So it does not change as you get nearer the shoulder.
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.
