I put this bra to the ultimate test…I wore it while flying from coast to coast WITHOUT my newborn. I wanted to see a) how comfortable it was b) how well it adjusted to my expanding breast size as I did/didn’t pump over the course of a few days and c) what kind of added leakage protection it offered me (in addition to breast pads I inserted).
Well… a) it turned out to be one of the most comfortable, supportive nursing bras that I’ve owned. The fabric was stretchy, yet soft and supportive and I was comfortable the entire trip. b) It easily adjusted to my size and shape over the course of a few days without my infant. The hooks on the back provide multiple sizing options and the material is stretchy enough to accommodate huge amounts of milk inflow without cutting into your skin. c) I’ve leaked through almost every other nursing bra I’ve owned, even with pads in. The added protection of the memory foam pads in this bra was a lifesaver, and I can say with confidence that there was not a drop to be seen.
This bra is supportive enough for every day use, yet cozy enough that I can sleep in it. And feeding my baby while wearing it is a breeze. I am 5’5″ and 130lbs post-partum. I am usually around a 36D when not pregnant/nursing and I ordered a large and it is the right size for me. In my pictures, the top bra is this Mamaway bra and the other two are Medela bras. The middle Medela bra has a SLIGHTLY softer texture but is inferior in terms of overall comfort and leakage protection. Mamaway products are awesome and I really like this bra!
I received this product for free or a subsidized price for an honest review. I do NOT let that affect my opinion…I absolutely give low ratings where appropriate and high ratings only when they are deserved. There is no consequence to me for posting critical reviews and no benefit to me for posting beneficial reviews. You can trust that my opinion is my own!
