The Bravado Original Nursing Bra was awarded the Parent Tested, Parent Approved seal of approval for quality and comfort and has been recommended by Lactation Consultants for over 20 years. The Bravado Original Nursing Bra is made of soft breathable cotton that promotes healthy breast tissue. The cotton fabric makes this the perfect nursing and maternity bra stretching and adapting to your changing shape and size. The unique double-cup/double-band feature gives you the confidence to purchase while pregnant and experience the enjoyment of continuing to wear after birth during the early stages of breastfeeding, making this like two bras in one.
The sports-back design evenly distributes the weight of your breasts, making you more comfortable. There are no hooks and eyes in the back that could pinch or scratch. This means the Bravado Original Nursing Bra is comfortable even while you sleep. The Double Plus Style has a wide under-elastic band that evenly distributes weight and provides full under-breast support. Also, it features a double fabric side panel, and a scoop front for extra support.
The Bravado Original Nursing Bra's cups unclip at the shoulder and drop down and away from your body to give baby full access to your breast, providing you and your baby with essential skin-to-skin contact. This is especially significant when establishing a breastfeeding rhythm.

I actually love this bra. I bought one before delivering, expecting to use it as a night time bra, and that's exactly how I use it. It's not supportive enough (IMO) for wearing out in public, but it is absolutely perfect for wearing around the house and to bed. I'm ordering another one now in another color. I'm a 36 H/I, and I get the M++, which works fine. If you're looking for a supportive bra, I suggest the underwire style from Anita, which goes up to size H, I believe. I have tried every single bra out there - been fitted at specialty shops, tried EVERYTHING, and the Anita is my pick for wearing out in public, while this one is my pick hands down for around the house/sleeping.
This bra is similar to maternity-style and sports bras with lots of coverage, but like those types of bras, causes a lot of sweating between the breasts. The band and cup sizes are a bit on the big side so you might want to go a size down for better support, although the bigger cup sizing does make it more comfortable for sore nipples.
I just got this bra in the mail today and I'm not all that impressed. I am nursing my 7 month old daughter and working towards a dental degree, so I wanted a supportive bra that I could wear all day that would keep me in place when I'm not with her, and be easy to nurse in. The band on this bra is too thick and the material is kind of itchy. In band width, I wear a 40 so I ordered the large++ but it's too loose and doesn't give enough support at all. The drop down cups are too high on the sholder and make it very obvious that I'm nursing a baby. The racer back style is not comfy, it causes the straps to dig into my sholders and back because of the weight of my breasts. I would recomend either buying a size smaller than they suggest or just sticking with plain old sport bras, they work wonderfully and support all day long.
