Hot Milk Nursing Bras

Pregnancy can be a beautiful time for women, but let's face it, after the baby comes, most of us feel like we don't look our best!  I knew when I was pregnant with Livvy that I would need a pick-me-up after she was born.   What I wanted was a little post-baby sexiness, and what could be better than a lacy, shimmering nursing bra!  My chest was about the only thing I felt looked good about me after the birth of my daughter.  I had a squishy, floppy, empty tummy and the most gigantic boobs I had ever had in my life!  I wanted them to look good.   Enter Hot Milk Nursing Lingerie, invented by two mamas, five years ago.  You can visit their facebook page HERE.

The first bra I bought was She Was Seemingly Unaware.  Retail price $58.80.  I bought mine for $24 on Zulily.  A definite steal!

Hot Milk says:
 An exquisitely styled, supportive and practical full cup bra in a rich lilac juxtaposed with jet black lace – a must for every womans under cover wardrobe of intrigue.
Feminine ruched shoulder straps allow for extra comfort
Power mesh wings at the back of this A-frame bra offer further support
Satin ribbons bring the elegance of this style to life
I say:  
This bra makes me feel pretty!  It's very comfortable.  The straps don't dig into my shoulders and it has six adjustable hooks in the back for when you start to lose weight and need to tighten it up.   It has full cups, which means when you open the cup, there is a kind of "sling" around your whole breast.  It doesn't have under wire, but that doesn't compromise the support at all.  It has black lace cups and black mesh sides with lavender straps and accents.  

I absolutely love this bra, so much in fact, I bought another.
Picture Perfect in Champagne and Midnight.  Retails for $58.  I bought mine on Keekoo for $35.99.  

Hot Milk says:
This fabulous contour cup gives you shape and lift, alongside all the functionality of a nursing bra. The elaborate European styled embroidery is offset by the delicate stitching detail on the cup.

I say:
This bra has wider, slightly padded satiny straps and six rows of hooks in the back for adjustment.  It has cream colored mesh sides and formed satin and lace cups as well as a flexible under wire.  

This is not a push up bra, but man, does it get those girls up there!  Talk about support!  It has half cups, which means that when you open the cup it folds down and there is no "sling" around the breast.  This brings me to my next point.  Due to the contoured nature of the cup, it is hard to fold down the cup and get it out of baby's way when she nurses.  Not a deal breaker for me, but I think that a side-opening cup would have been a better choice for this bra.  

That being said, I really do adore my Hot Milk nursing bras and would recommend them to all you pregnant and nursing mamas.  Hot Milk has lots of other bras, as well as a full line of maternity panties to match and beautiful lingerie, as well.  Check out their site today, you won't be disappointed!

These bras were bought by me and no compensation was provided to me by the company.  All ideas are my own.  My experience may differ from yours.
