Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra Review

When I reached the end of my first trimester, I lifted out all of my old maternity and nursing bras and came to the worrying realisation that most of them no longer fit me. Bravado sent me one of their very festive poppy red Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bras to review - incredibly good timing for which I am very grateful as it is the best nursing bra I've tried to date.

The fabric of the bra is really flexible - bouncy I'd say more than soft. When I wear it, the bra seems pretty much unnoticeable through my clothes and there are two handy inserts to smooth things out if you happen to be wearing breast pads (which can often cause things to look a bit lumpy). Because it is so flexible I think the bra will cope well as my body shape changes in the last trimester of pregnancy and then after the birth.

Although I haven't yet put the nursing clips to a real test, they seem very sturdy and strong but not difficult to release. I barely notice the clips and their supports right now but if you do want to transform the bra into a non-nursing bra after you stop breast-feeding then Bravado provide a nifty conversion kit which allows you to remove the nursing clips and the supporting straps permanently.

I can understand why people would want to convert this bra after they have stopped nursing - it is easy to become attached to a piece of lingerie as comfortable as this. To top it off, its also pretty stylish while still being practical. I love this bright red colour and Bravado also occasionally do limited edition colours as well as the standard black, white and nude colours.

For a non-underwired bra I am really impressed by the level of support that the Body Silk bra provides. My only negative comment is that I found the sizing a little complicated - I'm a fan of traditional bra sizes and of UK dress sizes and it frustrates me to have to map to proprietary sizing charts.
