Ever tried to breastfeed in a sports bra? It’s the stuff of comedy as you try to battle yourself free to get enough exposed to feed your baby. It’s enough to make you want to get back into your partner’s sweatpants and take a few more months off from exercise.
Cadenshae has answered our frustrated cry with a range of easy access activewear for nursing mums.
Cadenshae’s clever range of bright nursing tanks and sports bras is designed and made in New Zealand. Since the launch in 2015, the brand has become crazy popular. It’s not surprising. Even the hoodies have hidden access zippers.
The Fit2Feed Bra ($59) comes in bright aqua, shocking pink and black and white stripe, and combines a traditional racerback sports bra shape with the extra support of a hooked bra band. The cups open and clip closed like a regular nursing bra. Quick post workout feed, anyone? Think of the extra calories you’ll burn!
There’s also the gorgeous Loose Fit Tank ($59) that’s constructed with separate draped front and back panels over a sports bra foundation, making it easy to feed your baby. The tank comes in a luscious bright coral and blue or purple and pink. In the spirit of doing absolutely everything in your activewear, we can see this tank becoming an everyday staple.
If fitted is more your style, Cadenshae has a racerback tank ($59) with fold down cups for feeding. We love the colour blocked pink and grey version, and the flash of stripe with the sports bra foundation layer.
Cadenshae is available in Australia at Nurtured Fitness.
