The HOTmilk Show Off nursing bra has been an excellent supportive bra, giving great shape, similar to the underwired shape you’re probably use to, since it’s development two years ago. The original dark blue with peach background is still available, with a matching bikini brief. This season’s colours are Black and bright pink, and Vanilla and soft pink. 32D – 38H

The matching briefs sit under the bump during pregnancy and are very comfy after baby has been born (and years later in my personal experience!). Small – XXLarge

The newest addition to the HOTmilk range, is the lovely Chic breastfeeding bra. Available

The popular Hotmilk Essential Eclipse nursing bra is now available in nude, along with the enduring black. Both colours have matching bikini brief and french knicker to match. 32B – 42H

Review – HOTmilk Eclipse nursing bra

Our reviewer Liz is halfway through her second pregnancy. Here she reviews the Bras4Mums bra fitting service and the Hot Milk Eclipse. This was first published on Brighton Mums

I was delighted to receive in the post my new HOTMilk Eclipse bra yesterday. I found the process of getting a well fitting bra very simple through Bras4mums. I had a phone consultation with TJ at a prearranged time and she talked me through my body shape, current size, pre-pregnancy size and my style preferences. It seems she made unerring judgement about what would fit as the first size she suggested is spot on, despite me having doubts about it.

This is my second pregnancy and I managed to get through the first, as well as 16 months of breastfeeding, with my (now) F cup boobs staying in pretty much the same place. This was through judicious purchasing of bigger and bigger supportive bras and being re-measured regularly! However, somehow in this second pregnancy I feel much more relaxed about everything and more reluctant to shell out loads of money – pregnancy feels more like a transition period this time rather than a major event in itself. Still, after a few weeks of struggling with wearing my pre-pregnancy, wired bras, and then a few more of wearing last pregnancy’s (now) ill-fitting non-wired ones, I have admitted to myself it really is important to be both comfortable and supported, with a new and properly fitting bra.

First of all to check I liked the style and to get a rough idea of fit, TJ sent out a bra that was one cup-size too big while she waited for the new stock to arrive. This was a great idea as it gave us both an inkling if whether we were on the right track. Finding it fitted round the back but was too big in the cup (as expected) I sent this back and the new one in the right size arrived as soon as it came in stock.

The HOTmilk eclipse is an excellent bra. It is very full in the cup and has 3 hook fastenings at the back. This makes for a very supportive bra and my boobs are still in the same place at the end of the day as they were at the beginning (anyone with big boobs knows this isn’t a given!). It doesn’t dig in anywhere, and despite having gone up a backsize in order to accommodate the fact my ribcage will expand, it doesn’t seem to be riding up at the back. It’s quite attractive too with plenty of lace in various places. Its sister bra, the ivory HOTmilk Luminous is also very attractive and I will shortly be ordering one of these in the same size. The additional bonus is that both of these bras have drop cups and will be suitable for breastfeeding (if I don’t grow too much before then!).

All in all I’m very pleased with this new bra and look forward to going back to Bras4mums for advice as I expand during the pregnancy!
