Pros: Sizing?

Cons: Stretches out when worn, conical shape

This bra has not been a blissful experience for me. I am somewhere in the 32-34 E/F range currently, and expect to get bigger once baby is born. I bought this out of desperation - it was the only thing in-stock at the breastfeeding store I use, and I had to have *something* that weekend - and wish I could get my $54 back.

 

Pros are not that many for me -- other than it comes in sizes that theoretically work for me (not all bras do).

 

Cons: the fake underwire is a joke; the band AND cups stretched out a LOT within first few days of wear (!!), making this bra far too large for me within a week or ten days; cup shape is somewhat bizarrely conical and wide, although it has "softened" as it stretched out and this is less troublesome than it was at first; the center of the bra in the front is a little higher than pictured in my size, and sometimes shows under certain tops.

 

I would rate this a C-/D+

Pros: supportive, lightly padded, minorly attractive

Cons: pricey

Imagine my shock when the woman at the store measured me as an F cup.  An F!  She couldn't express the size of these boobs as a factor of D's.  Yowsa.  For the walking and running I do at work, it's going to take a hell of a bra to tame these ladies, and stretchy cotton was sure to cause a black eye or two.

 

Thank goodness they had the Bravado Bliss.  At first I sneered at the light lining, but really, it's great for hiding perky nipples just after feedings plus it acts as a very weak nursing pad.  I'm so glad it was there!  The bra itself has no underwire but still holds its shape fantastically, and the straps have a touch of embellishment so showing them off ain't so bad.  

 

The only warning- if you get milk on the black one, it'll show.  Since the bra is shiny, any milk just becomes a dull spot.  You can't tell on the white or cream, but on the black, it's plain as day.

Pros: comfortable, amazing fit, easy to wash, very supportive

Cons: none

I have tried a lot of bras, but I don't love any as much as my Bliss. I routinely wear this bra over any others. It is so comfortable and supportive. I never thought that a bra without an underwire could work for someone with a larger bust, but Bravado figured it out. I just wish that they made these in non nursing bras too.

I highly recommend following their sizing guidelines in order to get the best (and I do mean best!) fit.
