Nursing Bra Review (& Giveaway!)






Linguine Bra (non-nursing bra): Le Mystere c/o | Sexy Mama Nursing Bra: Le Mystere c/o

I have a more in-depth post coming where I’ll share my overall experience with nursing, but I wanted to separately share my experience with nursing bras because it’s one area I didn’t think much about until right before Benjamin was born.

The week before my due date I was getting my hospital bag ready and I frantically started shopping online for nursing bras. I felt a little helpless—I didn’t have any direction and was surprised to find several retailers were out of stock in the bras that were rated highly by reviewers (how else would I know what styles to try?!).

Luckily, Le Mystere reached out about their nursing bras (and non-nursing bras) so I already had one ready to go—the Sexy Mama Nursing Bra. And with #MothersMonth right around the corner, I’m excited to offer you the chance to win one of your own!

When I started nursing at the hospital, it was easy because I was still in my hospital gown getting lots of skin time with Benj. It wasn’t until the night of our second day there that I decided to try a nursing tank to help me feel a little less naked in the hospital gown. Once I got home, I switched to this nursing tank that I purchased back in December. And by the end of the first week, I was using a nursing bra. I stuck with the seamless options at first because the thought of an underwire just didn’t sound comfortable. The main thing I grew to love was nursing bras/tanks that don’t have too much material crowding the nipple/areola.

I finally turned the corner with my nursing woes around week four. It was sooner than I expected, but couldn’t have come soon enough. It was then that I finally decided to put on an underwire bra again, and I couldn’t be happier with the Le Mystere Sexy Mama Nursing Bra. The lace is beautiful and is attached to the padding (both of which unclip from the strap so there’s very little fabric near the nipple/areola—just what I wanted!). I realized the underwire is not that big of deal, either. It’s actually really comfortable and provides a lot of support for my now-larger cup size. I mostly love that the style is feminine and delicate, which makes me feel less like a milk machine and more like a woman.

I was also lucky enough to try the Linguine Bra (a non-nursing style that’s a favorite of Ellen Degeneres’). I don’t wear it much yet, but I did try it on under a few of my new shirts that I can’t wait to wear and it looks really flattering. Whether you’re in the market for a regular bra or a nursing bra, Le Mystere is definitely worth a try. Their nursing selection isn’t huge, but their styles are modern and beautiful!

Now for the really fun part…

    I seriously love these bras! A nursing bra from Le Mystere would be a dream. Nursing bras are usually such a struggle.

    This is so helpful!! I’ve been starting my search for nursing bras (30 weeks pregnant today!) and it can be so overwhelming. I really appreciate your honesty and suggestions. Le Mystere was my go-to for new lingerie prior to my wedding, and it looks like I’ll be going back to them post-baby!

    Thank you for sharing your journey with a newborn and nursing, etc. I just had my baby girl soon after you (March 30), and it is encouraging to see others going through the same stages as me. I have one nursing bra from Cake, but I can definitely use another one! 😉 Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy!

    Amanda! Your baby boy is absolutely precious! Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your experience with nursing. It is so essential to have a good bra! I think that is one of the reasons it was so tricky for me and made me never want to leave the house with my first! I hoping with the next it will be much smoother! The Le Mystere bras look like a dream especially the Linguine! Crossing my fingers!

    I’d love to win! I think having a great nursing bra is half the battle with BF. I get so sick of wearing nursing bras with no support, it’s like wearing a sub par sports bra on a daily basis. No good.
