BeliBea Nursing Bra (Review)

Posted in Review by

When we become moms, inevitably our expectations change.

Our house never stays as clean as we want it. We are never as clean as we’re used to.

And things that excite us may make the single, child-free woman, raise an eyebrow and smirk.

Solo trips to Target become an event, even if it’s only for 45 minutes.

Free time to grab a coffee because both of the little loves are napping in the backseat is a special treat.

And discovering a nursing bra that fits properly, can be the most amazing discovery that can make a mama tear up. (I may, or may not, be speaking from experience…ahem.)

Before I was pregnant the first time, I was barely pushing a B-cup.

After two babies, I have fluctuated from a B, to a D, to a C. Sometimes that’s all in one day.

With my first-born, I went the cheapest route possible for a nursing bra. Mistake. I didn’t know any better, so I stuck with 3 ill-fitting bras for an entire year.

For my second baby, I was determined to get better bras. I spent twice as much on each bra than I did before, but I was convinced it would be worth it. The second day, I took out every single under-wire. Why do they even make nursing bras with under-wire? Ouch!

Once I took them out, I was fine, at least they would do…

Now that my son and I are at the very end of our nursing journey, I have discovered the most comfortable nursing bra ever, Nourish by BeliBea.

It wears like a normal bra, you snap it in the back. It fits like a sports bra in that it stretches when you stretch. But it doesn’t look like you’re wearing a sports bra, it has a V neckline that ensures your breasts remain separate. Since it fits no matter your size (at any given moment), it offers much needed support to your breastfeeding breasts. And I have never been happier with a bra. Ever.

It’s not just for breastfeeding mamas. It’s for pumping mamas too. It has two layers. The outer layer is the part of the bra that has padding-I feel strongly that every bra should have padding, nobody needs to be caught smuggling peas (but if you prefer, the pads can be removed easily). The inner layer has an opening for your pump shield to fit through. As an exclusively pumping mama for my daughter, this would have come in handy. Since I’m not pumping for my son, because we are trying to wean, I haven’t gotten to try it myself. But you have to admit, it’s a pretty cool feature! Hands-free pumping! Seriously?!

A few words from BeliBea:

“Nursing mothers demand a new maternity bra that is comfortable yet affordable, flexible and durable, simple yet clever-this is the bra line for nursing mothers everywhere.”

I could not agree more. I will recommend this bra to any nursing mother, because we deserve the functionality, AND the comfort.

You can visit BeliBea on their websitefacebook, and twitter.

    I need a pumping one! I went with the cheapest for my first too; by the time I got to my second, I realized it’s better to invest a little in things that work better, are more comfortable and will last longer. Great review–thanks!

      Compared to what I’m used to spend on nursing bras, this one is an investment. But so worth it! If we have another one, I will buy more of these bras for sure. There’s no way I can go back to the cheap ones now! Ha! Thank you!!

    I need to get a bra like that! I’m pregnant, but already wearing nursing bras at 27 weeks. I’ve outgrown my regular ones long ago. I just have a couple of cheap, simple ones, but want a couple of nicer ones. Mine from my previous two were completely worn out from 38 months of use (more, since I also used them while pregnant and too big for regular).

      Yes-it’s a great bra! My biggest frustration with my other nursing bras is they didn’t always fit. Either it was too big, or I was busting out. I wore my nursing bras when I was pregnant too. Congrats on your little one, you’re almost there!

    Thanks so much for reviewing! With a new baby due in October, I’m definitely going to be in the market for a new nursing bra (just when I thought I was out of those things!). Thanks for sharing.
