I knew that I wanted to feed Archie for at least as long as I fed his brother, 9 months and so this time round, rather than surviving on cheap bras as I wasn't sure how long I would continue for, I was more than happy to spend money on well fitted, comfortable and good looking underwear as I knew that I would be in it for quite some time.
Boob contacted me about reviewing their Boob nursing bras, and I was more than happy to oblige and see if this was a product that would work well for us. Their nursing bras look great and are much more fun than many of the high street alternatives.
This may well be one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn and I have slept in it more times that I can recount. The back is well padded, the cups are stretchy enough to accommodate growth in the early days and between feeds and the material is lovely and soft.
One thing I found particularly great, especially in the summer months is that when you unclip the bra to feed, your whole boob is not exposed as with some nursing bras. This is great when I am just in a vest or strappy dress as I can feed much more discreetly without having to cover my baby's head.
I did find that despite the bra giving me a seamless silhouette, I do prefer a bit more shape to my underwear and it didn't give me quite the same boost as some. This isn't to say that it was not incredibly supportive, but I have found that I use the bra more for sleeping in (as it is so comfortable) than I do under clothes in the day.
The Boob nursing bra is priced at £45 which I do find quite steep for a nursing bra, yet after a few months of use, it still looks and feels like new, and it is hard to put a price on comfort in those first few months. The bra is incredibly practical, looks great and feels so comfortable. For me personally, its main use is as a night bra but you can check out some other reviews here:
Archie is now 7.5 months and I know that I won't be stopping breastfeeding in the near future. For a bra that will be worn so much for so long, I think it is really important to invest in one that you find comfortable.
