I liked the Original Bravados last time for their functionality, but since I'm small busted I always lacked shape in them. I looked a little droopy, especially as time wore on and the bras lost "snap" and I lost fullness, and nipples and breast pads always showed through.<br><br>
Bravado came out with The Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra last year. What an improvement! Not only is it SUPER, SUPER comfortable, but there are removable molded cups that give you a nice shape and a little lift (no underwire!), more like your regular t-shirt bras. I love them! They aren't cheap but so worth it. Just wanted to share my great find.

Did you order it online or get fitted for it?... they say that bf'ing mamas wait until about the 3rd week and then to get properly fitted for a nursing bra but I don't think I can make it to a store to do this.... is it a bad idea to forgo getting properly fitted?.....<br><br>

I ordered online. The sizes are not super picky, the bra is very stretchy, it was easy for me to know that I needed a small. My sister fits the same size and she is normally about 15 lbs heavier than I am.

I'm really wanting to try this bra out. I have one original bravado, and like you, I love it...but it has lost it's "snap" and being small chested I'm kind of looking pathetic in it! I <3 t-shirt bras, so I may just need to save up for one or two of these!

I've been hearing lots of good thngs about this bra....my question: would it be possible to nurse in without unlatching the cups? iow, stretchy enough to pull the cup down w/o unlatching it? I hate having to undo--and esp redo nursing bras!<br><br>
I've never tried a bravado, but the original ones look like they are wrap-style cups, so nursable without unlatching, KWIM? Just wondering if this one would work that way, too...

I bought one just before Christmas and I love, love, love it! I wish my second one would get here! My original Bravados have been through 2.5 yrs of nursing already and are really loosing shape. I find my nursing pads are slipping around too since the bra is loosing shape. I also tried on one of the microfiber bras and they are really nice too. I"ll probably buy a few of those when I go back to work next year.

I think you could, but it would probably wear the bra out faster from the stretching and pulling. And at 45.00 bucks I don't know that I'd want to be doing that... I ruined a great Victoria's Secret bra by nursing in it all the time.
