Yes, you deserve a beautiful (dare I say “sexy”?) nursing bra that makes you remember you’re a curvy woman and not a cow. The thoughtful people at Cake Lingerie sent me the one below, called Licorice, and I love it. Cake Nursing Bras are beautifully designed and I’m consistently impressed.
The good: The bra is super pretty, comfortable, and it has a flexible wire that lifts things into place while maintaining optimum health. I have found that it is also really easy to use for nursing. So, all around A+ for design.
The bad: No complaints but these bras (and matching undies) are a bit of a splurge. I think they make a great gift from the partner who still thinks you’re beautiful. Or maybe a Father’s Day present (wink, wink).
The ugly: Because I don’t look like the model above, I’m not going to try it on for you (though they do have a terrific campaign called Real Moms, Real Fit that shows all kinds of body shapes). If you want to see me in it, the best you can hope for is that I might flash you by mistake when feeding my little guy. Which is not altogether unlikely (Umm, sorry about that).
Bottom line: I recommend it highly for a special occasion or every-day treat. If you like, you can buy online from amazon or cakelingerie.com (which is really really hard for bras because good fit is so important) or find a store near you.
