Have I told you guys how much I love Nursememama yet? Because I seriously do. I’m not lying about that title either, I really believe that their nursing bras are the best. I first reviewed this company's invention, Busy Tabs a few months ago, (which you can read about here) that are truly a game changer.
Since then, the founder of NurseMeMama has been doing all sorts of stuff to promote and encourage breastfeeding (because it’s not easy and if someone tells you that it is, chances are they’ve had at least a LITTLE struggle somewhere in there). I love that this brand is so supportive and lighthearted on their social media but keeps the conversation going because we NEED to talk about these things and support each other!! Seriously, any product that makes this whole momming-business easier is SO worth it.
I was really excited to hear that this company keeps coming out with more products and SUPER excited to hear that next up was a nursing bra! But, this is no ordinary nursing bra. This bra caters especially to newborn babies because when they’re fresh into the world, their eyesight kind of sucks. I didn’t really know about this until I had Rey and it made total sense. At an early age she did, however, become really interested in patterns. This is exactly the thought behind the Visy Bra - give the baby something up close, right in front of their face to focus on and suddenly their latch becomes better, so they eat better, they are entertained and the experience is easier on momma, too. GENIUS and it really works!
Besides the science behind the bras, these are also the most comfortable bra I’ve tried - nursing or not. The traditional nursing bra is a lot like a regular bra but with the little clip that you can use to pull down the cup, which is fine… but isn’t really comfortable and to be honest, when you’re in a pinch and baby is fussing and you’re in public not really that functional.
I like the Visy Bra’s design because you simply just pull the boob out far enough for baby to nurse and if you need to you can pull it really far out - but if you don't, you can have a little more privacy. Also, that fabric panel with all the cool patterns for baby on it actually gives you more coverage (and makes you look a little less like your nip is hanging out in front of your family members).
This bra is a racer back and I’ve found myself sleeping in it a lot because it is SO easy to dream feed in and has minimal seams so it’s super comfy. Have I mentioned this is the most comfortable bra ever? IT IS, OKAY!? If you don’t believe me I highly recommend you buy one and try prove me wrong. Or if you agree then you should just buy one and be forever comfortable. I’ve also found myself wearing this bra a lot during the day because it provides the coverage I need, is surprisingly really supportive for a fabric bra and let's face it, I don’t have many outfits that I can’t wear a racerback bra with these days.
I’ve even found myself wearing it to work, which is how I discovered an extra bonus to these bad boys - that same fabric panel for baby’s attention actually works geniously to hold my suction cups on my breast pump. YEP - this super comfortable nursing bra does it all. So let’s recap - buy this bra to help baby stay focused and therefore gets him/her a better latch, keeps you comfortable all day long, is perfect to sleep in/easy access for night feedings AND you can even wear it while pumping.
One last note on this bra, my boobs have changed A LOT in size from pre-baby to pregnancy and that fun engorgement stage to post-baby nad nursing. I still honestly don’t know my true bra size at the moment but I am small around and big in the bust so I didn’t know how that would work out on me. After talking to the super friendly and helpful customer service team I ended up getting a medium and it fits so good! So if you’re worried about size don’t be afraid to reach out.
I love my VISY nursing bras!
I definitely recommend this nursing bra and would love all new mamas to try them out - seriously, put this in your hospital bag or buy your friends one for their baby showers and you will be their forever favorite.

Being a mommy is such an incredible experience. It’s also incredible to me how my body was able to grow our sweet little one, give birth and be able to feed her and help her continue to grow outside her womb. It’s a beautiful, sometimes scary and insanely personal process and we’re never really the same afterwards.
Physically, our bodies are more beautiful after birth. After all, the stretch marks, extra skin and unfading linea nigra line are all proof that we were able to create this gorgeous little human. But sometimes, it doesn’t always feel like it as our ‘before’ pictures can sometimes be more of our bikini body ideal and our ‘after’ can make us forget how incredible we are for what we’ve went through.
When it comes to looking the mirror post baby, we’re often harder on ourselves than we should be. It doesn’t help that our clothing options after baby aren’t very flattering and can make you feel anything but sexy, especially when it comes to the most vital item - your new nursing bra.
This absolutely does NOT have to be the case any more, however, because Oh La Lari’s nursing bralettes not only hear the need for comfortable, functional bralettes - they also have created a gorgeous, sexy bralette for new moms and mom’s to be!
I had to try one of these bras for myself and was so happy I did. They got it right, down to the packaging. These super soft, versatile, beautifully lacy bralettes instantly made me feel less like a milk machine and more like a sexy wife. At a time when body confidence can be at an all time low, it’s important to still take care of yourself and make yourself feel stronger as a woman.
This nursing bra makes looking in a mirror more flattering and helps show off one of the best post-baby body gifts besides baby (those awesome boobs)!! It’s also important to keep up your relationship and intimacy with your partner which can be the last thing on your mind when you’ve been running around changing blowouts and putting another load of ‘spit up’ clothes in the wash. It’s nice to have a company with products that understands the struggle and a bra that reminds you to take some time for yourself and your partner.
Oh La Lari was created by a mom herself whose goal is to promote self love and help women stay in touch with their pre-baby life, encouraging us to feel sexy and providing bras that are easy to nurse in and easy to love. This would be an awesome bralette to buy in pregnancy, too to make you feel a little more womanly when you can no longer see your toes! Be sure to add it to your registry, which is easy to do since they’re partnered with Babylist.com, or buy one or two for your friend’s baby shower! They will definitely be thanking you!!

Sometimes, during the cold and dreary winter months, I find myself feeling a bit down. Strangely enough, when I feel those winter blues, I like to pamper myself a bit. That means I will make sure that I am wearing feminine and sexy lingerie under my clothing. The underwear I choose to wear can make or break my mood!
Chantelle Paris has created a line of luxurious bras, panties and other gorgeous lingerie. Chantelle Paris offers a unique approach rooted in an intimate knowledge of women's bodies. Chantelle lingerie was designed to help women feel beautiful and enhancing their silhouettes. I own several pairs of Chantelle panties as well as bras. I absolutely love the fact that no matter what your size or shape, Chantelle has a bra that will suit you perfectly.
Whether you have a shallow bust, a average bust or a full bust, Chantelle has what you are looking for. I discovered Chantelle Paris when I was shopping for a bra that was sexy and feminine, but also comfortable. I wanted a full coverage bra with supportive lined cups and underwire. A bra that would enhace my shape and look great and natural under a t-shirt.
I found the perfect bra. It is Chantelle's Orsay Memory Foam T-Shirt Bra (in nude)
This bra is soft and lovely. Feminine, yet not too fancy. It fits me beautifully. I love the high quality fabrics and the intricate details. Chantelle Paris Orsay Memory Foam T-Shirt Bra (shown below)
