My NEW FAVORITE Nursing/Maternity Bra – Bravado! {Review}

Ive never liked bras. This might be partly because it is so easy to be wearing the wrong size (does anyone love bra shopping?), but there are so many other things to dislike about bras including the need to know your correct size, underwire poking you, clasps breaking, too much padding (or not enough), cheap fabrics stretching, and much more. I have spent so much on bras and never found a brand I wanted to stick with. Thats just sad.

When I was pregnant with Emma (2 years ago) and then nursing her for a year after, I wore nursing bras from maternity stores or department stores. I hated them. They never seemed to fit right, fell apart, and were not nearly supportive enough. Fast forward to now Im pregnant with my second and nursing bras are on the horizon. I wasnt excited about it at all but that was before I met the new love of my life


About two weeks ago I was sent a Bravado bra to try out and it changed my thinking FOREVER! I cant believe this secret was out there. Why arent women wearing t-shirts that say, Im wearing a Bravado bra and LOVE IT!? Im confused by their selfishness they should be sharing this goodness with everyone! I am SO impressed with the way this bra feels and looks, I cant rave enough.

Never EVER will I buy a cheap nursing/maternity bra again.

So here is the bra I was sent (because I know youll want to head right on over to the Bravado website and order one): The Bliss Nursing Bra. So appropriately named, too! Wearing it IS bliss.

Now I know Im doing a lot of raving here, but I am NOT exaggerating or overdramatizing this review. I. Love. This. Bra.

So the quick explanation as to why I love it? It is made very well (quality material and very soft), SUPER comfortable, and it puts my chest where it needs to be. And its PRETTY!

Another thing? The sizing is simple you can order B/C, D/DD, etc and know youre getting the right size. Being that Im pregnant and expanding everywhere, I knew I was somewhere between a B and a C, and the B/C fit me perfectly.

More Wonderful Features of the Bliss Nursing Bra (from the website):

  • Seamless Foam Cups hide nipples and breast pads, while giving you a beautiful shape
  • A flexible under-breast support channel offers remarkable shape and lift while maintaining comfort and good breast health
  • Beautiful satiny fabric, a delicate center front detail, and embroidered straps
  • Gentle stretch in the cups that grow and contract with your changing shape
  • Cups that drop down and away from your body giving baby complete access
  • Clips lie flat under close-fitting clothing and easily open/close with one hand

Final Thoughts:

Bravado is my go-to brand for nursing bras now I cannot recommend them enough! Especially the Bliss Nursing Bra since thats the one Ive tried and LOVED. Ive purchased no less than four bras since I became pregnant, trying to find something that fit and was comfortable, but I wasnt satisfied with any of them. I wish I had saved my money and bought a Bravado bra instead. Feel free to learn from my mistake!

Ready to Buy?

You can purchase the Bliss Nursing Bra from for $54.00. (Personal Note: Before now, I thought I would never spend over $50 on a bra well, I can tell you that that has changed. It is WORTH IT! Ive wasted so much money on bras its not even funny. I recommend buying a bra like this that will be comfortable for a long time and last!)
