Hotmilk have a reputation for creating beautiful bras, so why not treat yourself to this Skin-Coloured Eclipse bra? Hotmilk have designed this Skin Eclipse bra with an external side sling that runs from the shoulder straps to under the bust. This unusual design helps to minimise a larger bust, as well as giving greater support and shape. And there is even more good news if you're a mum with a fuller bust; this nursing bra is designed to support up to an H cup!
So what does it look like? This bra has delicate floral lace along the top of the cups and the supportive band around your chest, with a beautiful satin bow and diamante charm between the cups. With such luxurious detailing, this bra will not be completely smooth under tighter tops.
As pretty as this bra is, we know that it also needs to be practical. This bra has one handed nursing clips, allowing you to hold your hungry baby in one hand and undo your bra with the other. And as it's suitable to be worn from three to four months into your pregnancy, this bra is a great investment! The six hook and eye fastenings of the back give you lots of room to adjust it to fit you. Nursing professionals suggest choosing a nursing and maternity bra without wires, as it is thought that wires can contribute to the development of mastitis. This nursing bra is wire free, a great choice if you're looking for something that won't compromise on support.
The cups of this bra are full, offering great coverage as well as brilliant shape and support. The band under the cups is supportive, and the drop-down cups have an A-Frame design. This design offers greater support than side sling designs, especially at the top of the cup, as it covers more of the breast and gives an almost full cup, even when feeding. However, it is important to get the right size, as this A-Frame can be slightly constrictive for some fuller busted mums.
To protect your sensitive skin, the full cups of this bra are lined in 100% cotton, and all of the seams are concealed to stop them rubbing against you.

So why do we like this bra? Comfortable, practical and supportive, even in bigger sizes, this bra is great for wearing whilst you are pregnant and after your baby is born. But you don't have to compromise on style; the beautiful lace design isn't too obvious under your clothes, and we think this is one of our nicest designs in a skin colour.
