Pros: Good support, high quality, and lasts a couple years

Cons: Only basic colors available.

I have been wearing this bra since my first was born in 2006. I have since tried other bras, yet always come back to this one. These bras last around 3 years each, that is with a stash of only 4-5 at a time and getting washed and hung to dry repeatedly and wearing them 24/7. I am now on my 3rd stash, as I am now expecting my 3rd child in February. I have tried the silk bra in the past few months, that Bravado offers also, but it is worn only for special occasions. I really wish they would offer more of a selection of bras in larger sizes. I am blessed that this size fits me, otherwise I don't know what I would be wearing!

Pros: Fit, ease of use, durability

Cons: Shows under v-neck shirts, "uni-boob" look

Ah, good old faithful! This was my go-to bra for my first four kids. It was, in 2004, one of the only non-terrifying options available in my size (32/34 J at that time, yikes).

 

Pros = snap openings were very easy to use. I think they've switched to a more commonly found one-handed release, which is equally easy to use. These bras were incredibly durable - survived more than three years of breastfeeding, including 15 months with twins! Supportive, comfortable, wash well.

 

Cons = not very sexy, for sure. The regular and plus sizes have a "cross-over" style that is more attractive under clothing. The double-plus, industrial strength version comes up very high in the center of the front, and often shows under clothing. Also, it can give a bit of the "uni-boob" look.

 

Bottom line, a good value, comfortable and supportive. Not for a night on the town, and maybe not even for going to work in work clothing (?), but great around the house/on errands with kids, etc. Long-lasting.

Bravado! The Original Nursing Double Plus Bra, XL, White
Description:

Bravado! maternity/nursing bras are made from a blend of 92% cotton / 8% spandex that allows the cup to mold to your breast and support its changing shape all day long. The fabric has the ability to stretch and contract to fit your breasts without becoming too tight when your breasts are full. This reduces the risk of mastitis and allows room for breast pads without making the bra too tight.
