When I was pregnant with my first child, I thought that I needed to have a supply of nursing bras for when he came into the world. I went online, saw that Medela made some (and thought—Medela? don’t they make a pump? They must be good.) and ordered a couple in my size. I wore the bras for a solid year, never questioning them. That was until I broke them out again for the birth of my second child. As I put them on for the first time (again) I thought, “I don’t remember these being so, well, big,” and shrugged my shoulders and finished getting dressed. It went that way for about a month until I finally realized that there MUST be something a little more feminine and maybe, dare I say, sexier, in the nursing bra market. I went to my local (newly opened) breastfeeding store, Milkalicious, where I found it—the Bella Materna bra. I tried it on and it was as if the angels above started singing. First, they actually had one in my size (very hard to find) and Yes! it was cut low enough to not show above the neckline of my shirt and Yes! it was sexy and Yes! it didn’t have the nursing tabs—you just pull it open and whip out the boob. All this with complete support and lift! It changed my life, and it can change yours too.
