Does a nursing bra equal bliss? Relatively speaking, yes.

Bravado Bliss Soft Cup Nursing BraWe, like everyone else in the world, have long been fans of Bravado! bras and their well-priced, comfortable nursing bras. But with the launch of their new Bliss Maternity Bra, I think they definitely upped the ante.

I’m a huge fan of soft-cup nursing bras, mostly because they offer fantastic coverage under t-shirts and other tighter fitting clothes, and never scream, “Hey, I’m wearing a nursing bra and a breast pad!” to the world.  But Bravado has added a few extra touches making this a little different than the typical soft-cup nursing bras out there–like the wider shoulder and back straps for you boobalicious breastfeeding mamas, plus their trademark band that gives it the support and feel of an underwire without the actual underwire. Seriously, I had to check it a few times to convince myself.

Now I will say that this is definitely more functional than pretty in terms of looks, but if you’re in the market for a sturdy, uplifting nursing bra at a pretty reasonable price point definitely add the Bliss bra to your list.

Besides, it’s nice not to be stopped at the airport security every time for that darn wire under your boobs. -Kristen

    I’m really disappointed that a lot of these nursing bras aren’t offered in larger sizes. You have no idea how difficult it is to find a nursing size for us plus sized cool mommas!

    So are we Tanya – you have no idea how much we laugh when we get a nursing bra sample in an A cup.

    One of the companies we often recommend is Bella Materna
    While I don’t know how “plus size” you’re looking for, they do go up to 40G/H.
    I also believe Motherhood Maternity carries lingerie in sizes up to about a 46f.
