Considering I have nursed for a total of 53 months since 2004 (yes, I counted), I have learned a few things about breastfeeding; one of which is that a good nursing bra is definitely worth the money.
Now these days, “good nursing bra” isn’t synonymous with “ugly straight jacket,” and thank goodness for that, because a sexy nursing bra like the ones from Cake Lingerie (now Cake Maternity), is quite refreshing when you’re feeling less like a woman and more like a feeding machine.
These bras are beautifully constructed with hearty, cotton-lined straps (nice touch) and lovely lace detailing. And I really love how these bras feature 6 clasp back closures, which means that you won’t need to purchase another one when your back starts shrinking.
You’ll find fantastic cup support with the no-underwire bras, but they do offer an underwire option if you prefer to have a little extra help. And while they’re definitely priced higher than the mainstream nursing bras out there (though knock about 10% off the price to convert to US dollars), I will say that in my experience, you definitely get what you pay for. In other words, do it for your boobs; they’ll thank you later.
