It's been six weeks since Baby Green has been born and it has passed by in a big blur, mostly spent feeding my beautiful new baby, because breastfeeding takes hours and hours each day. When preparing my feeding essentials a good nursing bra was top of my list of things to get
, it is really important to be comfortable and whilst nursing bra's are never going to be the most attractive of underwear items, I also want to feel good in what I am wearing. You can see the Feeding Essentials I had prepared for before the birth and today I wanted to talk about my most used item, the Body Silk Seamless nursing bra (£30) from Bravado.
I have three of these bra's in total, one kindly sent to me by Bravado and two that I purchased after baby was born because it turned out to be my favourite style of the bra's I had. They come in a variety of colours so they work well under most items of clothing that are suitable for breastfeeding. They are extremely comfortable, the material is soft and sturdy and they wash very well indeed.
These bra's have some lovely features that I really enjoy, including removable foam pads which give a great shape and hides the shape of breast pads if you are wearing them. The drop down cups have a sturdy clip that is secure but also easy to undo one handed, this has made feeding when out and about so much easier and has really boosted my confidence to feed whilst out.

My favourite feature however is that these bra's come with a custom conversion kit. enabling you to turn them in to a normal bra when you have finished nursing, this means that they will last a long time and gives a green twist on this essential item. I think this is such a clever idea and I have found that the bra's are great quality so hopefully will last well.
