I'm looking for some new nursing bras. I've ben happy with my cotton Olga soft cups, but I'd like to do a more thorough search before I buy again.

I've heard lots of big-breasted women say they like the Bravado! bras, but when I was pregnant they didn't really seem to suit me.

This lingerie shop in town said that a local hospital's lactation center carries a line from Canada called Bravada and that I could find it online. She said they open from the center of the chest/bra up-and-out and that they seem to be the best line out there.

I can find no such line. The Bravado website (www.bravadodesigns.com) seems to have differing types of bras for different sizes, but even their small-breasted line opens from the top with a snap, not from the center.

Anybody heard of the line? Any other favorite nursing bras? I want them to be seamless cotton and very comfy!

Thanks.

I'm 99.9% sure there is no such thing as Bravada - she was confusing it with Bravado! The basic and plus bras from Bravado both open from a snap at the top and from the centre. The double plus style only opens from the top with a snap.

I've also only heard of Bravado. I really like the Blue Canoe "jane top"-- these are soft and supportive, but you just slip it aside with no hardware. I went from Bravado to this one and never looked back.

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right

Yes, just the Bravado line, no Bravada. The Blue Canoe are nice too, but I'm large chested and could really only use them at night, but they are quite comfy.

Thanks. I went ahead and ordered a couple Bravado's. I'm actually in between sizes. Currently a 34D but was 38DD when my son was first born, so I went with the medium in the Plus style so that it should fit me through another pregnancy and birth, if we're so blessed.

Thanks so much! I can always count on Mothering forum attendees!
