Introducing the Large Cup Seamless Nursing Bra

So often I get asked for a seamless maternity or nursing bra larger than an F cup. The seamless nursing bras that I have in stock are all lovely and fit really well on ladies up to an F cup, but even the XL sizes will not fit or give support to anyone larger than an F.

Sugar Candy Fuller Bust Seamless Nursing BraSo hurray for Cake Lingerie who have filled a gap in the market and introduced the Sugar Candy Nursing Bra – a fuller bust seamless nursing bra.

This bra has been specifically designed for the large cup ladies, starting at a 30 band and from an F-HH cup, it has a reinforced bust platform sling and a double layer side support sling to give maximum support to heavy breasts.

It is ideal for during pregnancy, breastfeeding and as a sleep bra, so definitely one for the hospital bag for immediately post birth or for wearing around the house.

Sugar Candy Fuller Bust Seamless Nursing BraIt comes in 3 colours, the basic black and nude but also a gorgeous pink if you like a bit of colour!

The sizing is very simple so this bra will last you at a time when your breasts are changing shape and size during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

January Bra of the Month

Each month, starting from this month, I am going to share with you a different bra and give you a special offer for the website. It might be money off, free postage, discounted or free matching briefs… it just depends on the bra for the month as to what the offer will be.

I am beginning this year with one of my personal favourites and one that I know lots of you ladies like too! It might not be pretty, but it is super comfy and supportive and is one of the bras that I recommend to the majority of my customers.

Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra

Bravado Seamless Nursing Bra

The Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra.

For those of you who don’t know my story, I struggled with maternity and nursing bras during my first two pregnancies. I then discovered the lovely T-J who trained me in maternity and nursing bra fittings and I started my BraLady Cambridge business. So whilst pregnant with my third son and breastfeeding him, I had new bras which I knew fitted me properly, were comfortable and supportive.  I practically lived in the the Bravado Seamless Nursing Bra!

It is a soft, stretchy, t-shirt style bra and is ideal for pregnancy and breastfeeding because of its flexible sizing: Small – Extra Large covering 32B to 46F.

The new style Extra Large has had x2 cup sizes added to it, so it now goes up to G cup (although I haven’t yet got those in stock). If you want one of the new sized XL bras, then please email me at info@bras4mums.co.uk and I will sort this out for you.

This bra is ideal for your hospital bag, early days of feeding, or if baby arrives earlier than expected and you haven’t had your nursing bra fitting yet.  It is very versatile and can be worn during the day as it is supportive enough, or can be slept in at night as it has no seams to dig into your milk ducts.

The foam cups offer a firmer shape and cover your nipples or breast pads. Some ladies like the pads, others remove them immediately! I used them for the first few weeks of breastfeeding to help protect my sore nipples, but then took them out as I didn’t need them anymore.

The Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra is available in a choice of colours: black, ivory and latte. I have a few pale pink left in stock and there are also seasonal colours available so a new colour is likely to be available in the spring.

Already discounted from the RRP of £30 down to £27, I am offering you a further 10% off this month. Just enter #braofthemonth at the checkout to apply your discount.

I hope you love this bra as much as I do!

Newborn Days

Newborn days tend to be a whirl of nappies, visitors, midwife visits and tears. We were not warned about the “baby blues” before our baby arrived so we thought we’d spread the word and reassure you it’s completely normal. It generally appears a day or two following the birth of your beautiful baby. There is no warning, there is no reason, but you will find yourself dissolved in tears – embrace them as they really do help and they do not last forever.

Pregnancy Diaries: Jo & Daniel’s Birth Story

After a fairly uneventful pregnancy until 36 weeks, when I was moved onto consultant care due to concerns over baby’s size (I was discharged from them at 39 weeks) and managing to get through Christmas and New Year without an early appearance of baby, I was ready for the end at 40 weeks. I had a sweep with my midwife at 1.15pm on Friday 10th January at 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant.  After returning home and sitting down for a bit, I started getting some strong irregular cramps at 2.15pm. After another hour of pretending to be normal (looking after the toddler and doing housework) and breathing through the contractions when they came, I realised that it was definitely labour and started calling the family to sort out who would look after Thomas, our 2 year old. My dad came over to stay the night with Thomas in case we needed to leave for the hospital in the middle of the night. I called our doula, Manie from Opal Aura and told her not to rush but to come over when she could as things were moving up a gear now with the contractions coming stronger and closer together.

Hospital bag – What should you pack?

With an ever expanding belly and time flying like there’s no tomorrow, the question “have you packed your hospital bag” is one that has some pregnant mums to be crying with sheer frustration. What to pack? What will we need? They aren’t silly questions, after all – you’ve not had a baby before so it’s moving into the unknown. Continue reading
