Last Wednesday we announced the Mommi Breastfeeding Giveaway and partnered with 5 amazing and innovative brands all focused on making excellent products to improve the experience of breastfeeding. In order to bring you the best of the best we tried out these products so we could give you our true opinions. Here we bring you a review from the moms at Mommi for a few of the bras designs at Bravado! Designs.
From Lindsey Peterson – Sales Director, Mommi
I don’t know a woman that has searched high and low for THE perfect bra. Well, when you’re breastfeeding, the challenge continues. I struggled to find a nursing bra that offered everything I needed: support, comfort, ease, and flexibility with wardrobe. I battled clogged ducts, mastitis, and the dreaded battle of the bra while nursing in public. Want to know my solution? Bravado! Designs offers a bra for every occasion and they are the best nursing bras!
I am a full-time mom and Registered Nurse. The Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra is the answer to my prayers. There are days when I don’t sleep for 36+ hours, and I longed for the comfort of a bra that didn’t pinch or make me itch, and also gave me the flexibility to nurse and pump. The Body Silk Seamless does all of these and comes in a total of 7 colors and the fabric is so comfortable and stretchy. It also comes with removable foam pads for extra discretion, or a place to even put your nursing pads. My son is 11 months old, but I wish I would have had this bra earlier, as it would easily keep you comfortable when your chest size is ever-changing.
If you are like me, pregnancy was not easy on my body. To be honest, even though I love breastfeeding, it has been a challenge for me to feel confident and sexy. Bravado! Designs just introduced their new Elegant Embrace Bra and it is perfect for date night and to help boost my confidence when my husband and I actually get to spend some time together. The Elegant Embrace has a lacy detail on the outside paired with an awesome soft cotton interior of the cups to help ensure comfort and support while still looking like one, hot mama. I love the fact that it doesn’t have an underwire, yet helps keep me shapely and supported.

Oh how I wish I knew about this nursing bra when I had my daughter Jordyn. Toward the end of my pregnancy I was anxious about giving birth, but honestly I was the most afraid of breastfeeding! I had heard HORROR stories and had a really rough pregnancy so I expected it to just be the same thing all over again with nursing. So I was really surprised and happy when my little peanut took to my breast right away. It didn’t hurt, I never had an infections, and my milk supply was strong. I definitely felt blessed to have that experience right out of the gate. However, I picked THE WRONG nursing bra for sure. I had no idea what to get so I just chose something I found on Amazon. It had underwire that constantly tried to slip out with the constant up and down, and I was uncomfortable all of the time.
My babe is now 13 months and our days of breastfeeding have come to an end. However, given that I’m pregnant again with my 2nd, I was more than excited to try Bravado! Designs Signature Nursing Bra. I LOVED it. It was so seamless that I couldn’t even tell I had on a nursing bra. Definitely a different experience than what I had lived through before. I never sleep with a bra on and I did while wearing this bra which was great because when I was breastfeeding I had the hardest time sleeping with those uncomfortable bras I wore during the last year of my life. I am excited to experience breastfeeding again with my next baby and so so happy that I have found a comfortable nursing bra. I am a fan for life!
From Kristi Shields, Sales Director – Utah, Mommi
Just a month ago we were blessed with the birth of our first child, a little boy that has melted and stolen our hearts. Leading up to this, my pregnancy was pretty rough. I was sick every day of the first and second trimester and I gained 37lbs. My breasts grew too and during my second trimester I had to look into purchasing bigger bras so I figured I’d buy my nursing bras then! I asked around and a lot of my friends recommended different places. I went to one that lots of people recommended and just picked some. They were SO UNCOMFORTABLE! They were itchy and dug into me and were just not enjoyable. Then a few days before my little boy came I went into a nursing bra specialty store and got fitted for one. This time they were better but the band still was too thin and folded in on its self and would get uncomfortable. I was getting closer to the “perfect bra” but wasn’t quite there. Then I heard about Bravado! Designs Body Silk Seamless nursing bra, and it has been perfect! The band is thick, sturdy and holds me in. It doesn’t bunch or dig in, it keeps a seamless line and doesn’t create extra “rolls & lumps” (let’s face it, we have enough of those already right after the baby:). This bra is so comfortable and it is easy to unhook and begin nursing my little one. It is so comfortable to wear at all times, day or night! In addition, I feel like once I can work out, this bra will be great as a sports bra! I think this is the most versatile and comfortable bra out there! Bravado! Designs has so many other options that I can’t wait to try!
