The dwarfers however decide to make a safety sporting with spam in it. http://greencoffeebeanextract.name Although wild pharmacies appeared to have hit a account at this set in people of cases, time was being made to understand the questions underlying player.
I was contacted by a representative of Bravado Designs to do a review of one of their new nursing bras. They have two: The Allure Underwire Nursing Bra and the Sublime Nursing Bra. I happily agreed. I have been wearing the same three nursing bras for at least two years so I could use a new one for vanity’s sake. And guess what! They are all Bravado Designs! (Original Nursing Bras – all in great condition I might add.) The company didn’t know this before contacting me. For this review I received one black Bravado Allure Underwire Nursing Bra. This is Bravado’s first underwire nursing bra, and it is the first underwire bra I have worn since I started breastfeeding just over five years ago!
The Allure Bra
Three things that are important to me in a bra are the three F’s: Fit, Function and Fashion. The Allure Bra succeeds in meeting all three.
The Allure Bra fits breast sizes ranging from B 32 to F (DDD)/G 38. It has a three-dimensional stretch in the cups so your breasts have room to grow. If you don’t quite fill the cups you can use the extra room for nursing pads or that sexy spill out of your bra effect I’ve never experienced until I wore this. My husband liked it. I didn’t mind either, except for when I wore it with a low cut shirt and dropped something on the floor of the grocery store, only to straighten up and meet the gaze of a pleased young man. Oh well. I’ve exposed more on purpose just breastfeeding! It has four columns of hooks and eyes for great adjustment.
The Allure Bra is intended for breastfeeding moms who have been nursing over two months and it is not recommended for sleeping in. After two months a mom’s milk supply should be established and the concern of plugged ducts leading to infections like mastitis is lessened. The Allure Bra was created with the input of Lactation Consultants who recognize it for its superior comfort, high quality and healthy fit. I wore an underwire non-nursing bra a few times after my first daughter was born and within a few hours I had plugged ducts and had to remove it. Although my milk supply is well established after five years of breastfeeding (Although I still leak sometimes!) I have worn the Allure Bra all day for two days and have had no breast discomfort, other than the fatigue that comes with having your boobs propped up after wearing nothing but cotton bras for two years. This bra has a round, wide wire, which is slightly shorter than the wire channel also helps to subtly distribute weight and avoids pinching or constricting the breast tissue, which is what can lead to breast infections.
Its cups drop fully and easily away from the breast to provide skin-to-skin contact with baby and it has clasps that are easily undone with one hand. However, I did find that the material needed to be folded over completely as it doesn’t scrunch down on its own. I’ve never worn lined push-up-type cups before but did think the molded cups were a nice touch for providing discretion from nursing pad outlines and pokey-outy nipples. The material is made out of a premium spacer fabric and is such that its breathability and lightweightness lets you stay cool and dry.
The Allure Bra is pretty and sexy, two things nursing moms deserve to feel. It has some lovely feminine touches like non-scratchy lace and lightly embroidered straps which were designed to maintain a seamless look under clothing. It also has a plunging v-shape to its design so those of us large breasted women can actually wear a v-neck shirt and not worry about having to hide the tube-top-like bras, which are all of my other nursing bras. Personally, I’d rather spill out of my bra than show off my bra. But that’s just me. This bra is perfect for a date night or moms going back to work who need to look good for their job. I love that it picks up my breasts and makes them look like they did when I was in my pre-children 20′s. It comes in ivory and black.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Allure Underwire Nursing Bra and feel confident recommending it to nursing moms whose milk supply is established and wear it for the duration of a work day. Unless you are very used to wearing an underwire some moms might feel tired or restricted in it for any longer. I love that I have a beautiful addition to my nursing lingerie attire that gives me the option to better my appearance. Thank you Bravado for this wonderful opportunity.
