Boobie Milk

Breastfeeding is far from glamorous and the underwear on offer to nursing mums only seems to confirm this.   Add in a toddler with an aversion to shopping and you end up with the first thing you can find in your size - usually something I would never have dreamt of wearing pre-baby!

When Karen at Boobie Milk contacted me about her fitting service it sounded like the perfect solution for a busy mum.  Karen came to my house armed with all different styles and sizes of nursing bras, and let me peruse and try on in the comfort of my own home.  I arranged an appointment for during Dylan's nap time, knowing that I would have some peace to shop, and some time to make a cup of tea whilst I was doing it!

Boobie Milk have both the basic T-shirt nursing bras and the delicate pretty ones, and she carries all the stock with her, meaning no postage fees and no waiting - once you have paid it is yours to wear.  I was suprised to find that the size I would have ordered online was very different to the size that fit me right and it was only through this home service that I established this.

Karen was absolutely lovely and really put me at ease, whilst offering her expert advise.  As a breastfeeding mother herself, she has personally tried all the products and really knows her stuff.

I ended up choosing a pretty nursing bra set by Hotmilk as well as a sleep nursing bra and was really pleased with my purchases.  Both bras are a perfect fit and I feel happier and more confident than I did in the old nursing bras I had quickly picked up after having Dylan.  I would really recommend visiting the BoobieMilk website or organising a home visit if you are based in Kent.  If you are not in the area, Boobie Milk offers unlimited free exchanges so you can ensure you have the best fit.

Karen can come out to your home, or visit a local breastfeeding group so it is a perfect excuse to pamper all the nursing mums in your life with a home party, some cupcakes and some lovely new underwear! After all, we are doing something so important for our children, we should look after ourselves!

Disclaimer:  I was provided with nursing bra set for the purpose of this review but I also purchased from Boobie Milk myself.  All thoughts and opinions are my own and I can honestly recommend this service.


  1. This sounds great! I had a nightmare after having Jacob I even had my boobies in makeshift muslin square slings round my neck in hospital as they doubled in size overnight! When I got home I Had to pay out hundreds of pounds to order lots of different bras to try on! I'll keep them in mind for if and when I have another baby! Do they do plus sizes? my non 'boobie juice' size is a 30 G now! eek! xx

  2. I carry nursing bras fitting sizes from 32B-42H, it really can be hard to fin a larger cup with a small back size with great support. The Hotmilk styles provide very good support up to an H cup.


I love comments, so please let me know what you think!
