Mum-to-be Diary: Bravado Designs help to support an ever expanding bust

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page


An unavoidable blessing for some, nuisance for others is the growing boobs that come with pregnancy. I am half way though and wondering when they are going to stop… I have outgrown all my bras by week eight!

There are plenty of maternity bras on the market but with weekly changing cup size and shape, you could be in for buying a new bra every month, which can become rather an expensive pastime. I have recently discovered the platinum award-winning maternity and nursing lingerie brand, Bravado Designs which has a selection of Nursing and Maternity bras to suit every mum and mum to be.


I have opted to invest early in a couple of Nursing Bras which are perfect for every day wear. You can use them at home, on-the-go or for anytime nursing. The luxuriously soft fabric moulds to your changing shape, so that you can wear it throughout pregnancy and nursing therefore saving money.

Their Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra really is the ultimate seamless, comfortable experience with an incredible amount of support for tender growing breasts. The nursing bra features a luxuriously soft, seamless and wire-free design for added comfort. There is also 4-way stretch fabric that hugs your changing shape; removable foam inserts for shape and discretion; proprietary, easy open and close, one-handed Bravado ‘B’ nursing clips and a full drop away bra cup design for maximum skin-to-skin contact. There is a bra Conversion Kit included so you can convert your nursing bra to a ‘regular bra’ once your nursing journey is complete and all products are free from harmful substances.

In time for summer, Bravado Designs are expanding their Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra range with the launch of two new feminine and fresh colours: the soft and pastel hue, Dusted Peony and fresh, bright White. These are must-haves for every maternity wardrobe!
