Baby Baker Friday - Bravado Nursing Bra's

So as you know, I decided that Friday's on the blog would be dedicated to my pregnancy and now, new mummy status.

I know it's not something everyone wants to read about but it is something that I really wanted to do - so I'm doing it - after all, being pregnant and having a beautiful new baby is a huge thing to be happening in my life and I really wanted to share bits and pieces of what is going on amongst these pages.

So here we go

~ Baby Baker Friday ~

So, before Baby Baker's birth, I had this whole huge list of ideas and things I really wanted to make happen once she was in the world.

One of the things situated right at the top of the list - something which was starred, underlined and highlighted - was the fact that I really wanted to breastfeed.

I was adamant that it would happen.

However, sometimes we simply must face facts that no matter what we do, even the best prepared for plans don't quite go how we would like.

And trust me, I was prepared as much as I could have been.

Yet it didn't matter one little bit.

~ Forget that I had kitted myself out with breast pads, nipple creams, maternity tops and even a breast pump.

~ Ignore that I had googled things, had read leaflets and had spoken with numerous health care professionals.

~ Push aside the fact that Baby Baker had managed to feed from me for her first 48 hours.

In the end none of it mattered at all because obviously, it was something that just wasn't meant to be in the long term.

And it wasn't meant to happen because of the pain.

Oh the horrible, horrendous pain - it caused lots of frustrated tears, some feelings of failure and all my nipples wanted to do was up and evacuate my body in a "too painful" protest.

Myself and the Hubby made the decision that evening that bottle feeding was the best way forward for us all.

And now Baby Baker is thriving, she is happy and we love our feeding-bonding time.

So everything turned out fantastic.

But as I said, before all of this, I had spent time getting myself all prepared.

I had all of these things - everything to help me on a boobie feeding journey - even right down to feeding appropriate undies...

Aren't the colours great - so much better than simple black or white
(how boring!)

These bras are by Bravado and are fabulously comfortable, sporty style bra tops.

Their seamless design has patented Silverbreeze technology incorporated within which makes them perfect for offering excellent support during low-impact activities such as walking or yoga.

The design of the bra is to obviously help make breastfeeding as easy and as fuss free as possible and I am in no doubt that they would do this perfectly...

~ they have a useful, easy to clip down front design...

~ they have a wide, very supportive, fully adjustable back fastening...

And just because it turned out that breastfeeding wasn't for me there was no way I was missing out on wearing these beauties that's for sure - and I haven't - I've had them both on numerous times, and do you know what, they have to be two of the most comfortable bras I have ever had the pleasure of wearing.

Soft, stretchy, supportive - brilliant.

Most importantly though, I found that they were absolutely perfect for my post-pregnancy sore, swollen, tender boobies.

The material of both bras was really soft to the touch and it felt just amazing - like silk - on my poorly skin.

Then there was the fact that the cups of both bras were quite structured and padded (my Hubby told me it looked as though they already had boobs in them!) and this factor helped me out again - it offered me a lot of support and coverage without any need for lots of uncomfortable underwiring being involved.

~ Fabulous ~

I am very much a fan of these bras and will definitely be wearing them as I begin my post-pregnancy fitness journey...

...that is, if I don't just wear them everyday instead...

Because I could quite literally wear them forever
