Bras for breastfeeding mothers have come a long way in the past few years. Gone are the days where your choice was between beige and light beige, in a section hidden away at the back of the shop. No, these days being a breastfeeding mama is no reason to not own sexy underwear.
Le Mystere is a US brand that specialises in underwear that is comfortable, practical and also a little bit sexy – not usually three things that you find together when it comes to underwear. Their range of nursing bras fits this description in sizes up to F and G cups.
The Mama Mia nursing bra (top left) is designed to provide coverage and support while still looking modern. The easy one-hand clip makes for simple access for breastfeeding. It has memory foam padding to prevent surprise leak throughs and hides disposable nursing pads, making it an ideal t-shirt bra. Additionally it is comfortable enough to wear to bed! Available locally from Zodee for $90, it comes in sizes 10D to 16G in black and skin-colour.
For those who prefer a little more lace on their undergarments, there is the ‘Sexy Mama’ nursing bra. There’s an easy, one-hand clasp for breastfeeding, lined cups for a contoured silhouette and to hide breast pads and an inside sling design to provide extra support and comfort for your changing breasts.
The ‘Sexy Mama’ bra comes in sizes 12C through to 18F in black or ivory and costs $95 from Zodee.
