I have spent the last couple of months looking longingly at the lingerie department every time I go shopping, and getting excited about wearing a normal bra when I get a few baby-free hours. When I was pregnant, I opted for cheap and functional nursing bras as I was unsure whether I would be able to breastfeed, so 7 months in and I am desperate for something different to my boring black or white options.
That is when Hotmilk got in touch, I popped on to their website and fell a little bit in love.
Hotmilk’s mission is “to change maternity and nursing lingerie the world over by revealing the sexy woman inside the loving mother”. They test their designs with real pregnant women to make sure they are comfortable and have loads of special features to make sure they are ideal for use in pregnancy and nursing. They have a really nice website that is easy to navigate and a great Fitting Room page, that is a massive help when measuring and looking for guidance on what to buy and how to adjust it to fit. What I really liked is their “Men Only” section, which talks men through how to buy us lovely ladies a gift including hints on getting the size and style right. A link has been sent to Daddy Bear, but I am still waiting for something pretty.
I received my Navy Show Off nursing bra in the post and I was really pleased with it. It has wideshoulder straps and back straps, and the back adjusters have 6 positions, ideal for your changing figure. The fabric is really soft and comfortable, for day or night wear and the cups are designed so that you do not have any seams to irritate or rub. I found the bra to be really supportive and made me feel a bit more confident about my figure again.
The cup has an A-Frame design, which helped me feel a little more covered while nursing in public. Although the cost of these bras are a little more than I would normally spend, I would definitely invest in some more from the Hotmilk designers as they are sexy, supportive and comfortable; 3 words I never thought I would put together for a nursing bra.
