More details:

So what does it look like? The cups are made of a nude colour lining with a beautiful black lace overlay and a matching nude bow between the cups. The straps are black.

The cups of this bra are soft, with a full-cup design that drops away to allow you access to the breast. They are lined with soft jersey fabric, with a side sling to support you when the cups are down. There is no padding, but the cups are made in three parts to support and shape your bust. As the material is slightly stretchy, this bra might not be as supportive as you would usually expect from a Panache bra, so this is something to consider when choosing your nursing bra.

This bra has an elasticated band around the chest, supporting you without underwires. Health care professionals suggest that wearing a bra with underwires whilst feeding may lead to the development of mastitis.

How practical is this bra? The Sophie Nursing bra has adjustable straps and six hook and eye positions so you can find your perfect fit even as your body changes. In D-G cups, there are two hook fastenings, and in the GG-J cup sizes, there are three, giving you more support at the back. The back is designed to reduce the amount the straps can move, and there are one-handed nursing clips on the straps, allowing you to drop the cups quickly and easily whilst holding your baby in the other hand. Sometimes speed is essential!

To keep your Panache bra in the best condition, we would recommend hand washing it. If you would like a different colour, this bra is available in Ivory/Candy Pink as well - please see below for this option.

So why do we like this Black/Nude Panache Sophie Nursing Bra? We love the vintage, lacy feel of the design, and knowing that it's from Panache is a real bonus, especially if you have worn their bras before.

  • 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.

    WIDTH OF BRA STRAPS
    How wide are the straps of this nursing bra? We measured a D 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 17mm once you get to an E cup and above. So from D-DD, it is 15mm, then from E and above it is 17mm.

    What if you are still not confident about your size?

    Not confident that you know your size? Can we offer some advice that many women, searching for a comfortable nursing bra have found to be “game changing”…it should take around 60 seconds, but could make it much easier to be confident about sizing. Anyway, here is our advice!

    70% of our customers pick a “flexible sized” nursing bra. If you are not confident about your size, we highly recommend them too. You should find a “flexibly sized” nursing bra easy to fit and we have them if you are from 30” to 46”, A-JJ cups. Most our customers get at least one. Here are two scenarios where they help:

    A) You might think you are a 34E, but are not certain So how do you get a well-fitting, comfortable nursing bra?. We suggest you might, for example, pick a “Flexible sized” nursing bra in a “Medium”. This bra may cover sizes 32DD,32E, 32F,32FF,34DD,34E,34F,34FF,36DD,36E,36F and 36FF. This makes it much easier to get a comfortable nursing bra, when you are not certain of your size.

    B) You may wonder how your body may change as your milk comes in and out. Or you may want a bra that you have from pregnancy right through your breastfeeding journey. You may feel more confident picking a “Flexible-Sized” nursing bra that will still fit as your body changes size. So, if you are not confident picking a 38G, you may pick, as an example, an Extra-Large. As an example, this bra may still fit you if you are any of the following sizes:,36FF,36G,36GG,38FF,38G,38GG,40FF,40G or 40GG. So as your size changes, they bra still fits and is very comfortable.

    Most our customers buy around 3 - 5 nursing bras. One or two may be conventional sizes such as 32C or 32D. Two or Three bras are often “flexible sized” nursing bras that mostly come in sizes Small, Medium, Large etc.

    If you have an idea of your bra size, (e.g. 36F) and want to see what “flexible sized” nursing bras are available in your size, follow this 2 step process:

    Step 1: Using our “Find the perfect nursing bra” pick your size from the first drop down box…you can click this link when you are ready.
