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!!

Having a baby is an exciting time of life! There are many adjustments to be made as you settle into your new routine of being a mommy. As rewarding as it is, motherhood can be hard! Nursing your baby is hard work, too. As much as you love your precious little bundle, it can be frustrating to finding clothing that is comfortable AND beautiful.
When I was a new mother, breastfeeding thankfully came pretty easy to me, but I honestly could not find anything to wear that made me feel pretty. None of my pre- pregnancy clothing fit me or my new larger breasts. I usually wore zip up hoodies or my husbands t-shirts, none of which made me feel pretty.
Thankfully, someone thought of a solution! The creators of Kindred Bravely have designed clothing that is made of soft, pretty fabrics to help new mothers look and feel their best as they take on their most challenging role of their lives. Kindred Bravely's clothing was made with nursing mothers in mind.
My daughter-in-law, Cassidy just gave birth to her sweet baby girl, Reylin last month. I wanted to help Cassidy to find clothing that she would feel comfortable in as she navigated her new journey into Mommyhood. I did some online research and happily discovered Kindred Bravely.
I knew that I wanted to help Cassidy choose a nice and durable nursing bra. She chose The Organic Cotton Crossover Nursing & Sleep Bra.
Whether you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, recovering from surgery, or concerned about skin sensitivities, this bra is the perfect choice for a new mama and the planet. With ultra-soft organic cotton and no underwire, this nursing bra feels great all day and night.
Plus, the simple crossover front design and lightweight fabric provide gentle support, making it the ideal go-to when a structured bra would be too much.
Even the back of this bra is comfortable. The straps are wide and they don't dig into your your shoulders.
Cass loves this bra because it is very soft and comfortable, and non-restricting. She feels like she is not even wearing a bra, except for the fact that it truly gives her the support she needs.
Besides comfortable bras and undergarments, a new mommy needs to feel beautiful. She needs something comfortable to lounge around in because she isn't going to feel like getting dressed those first few weeks of Baby's life. (She also may not fit into anything for awhile and will need to keep wearing her maternity clothes, or her husband's t-shirts!)
I bought Cassidy Kindred Bravely's Angelina Nursing & Maternity Nightgown for when she got home from the hospital. (It can also be worn as maternity wear.) It is really comfortable and also very stylish. It is perfect for nursing, and perfect for feeling 'put-together' for when visitors arrive.
The Kindred Bravely Angelina Nightgown is a Mom’s Choice Awards Gold Recipient! The ultimate two-in-one, this nursing gown combines the comfort of a nightgown with the easy style of a cute dress.
Whether worn for bedtime, lounging around the house, or running errands, moms will feel comfortable and beautiful in Kindred Bravely's Angelina Ultra Soft Maternity Nursing Nightgown Dress. It’s perfect for new moms, who’ll want to wear this versatile piece night and day.
Breastfeeding moms even say this nursing dress is fashionable enough to wear on a date. The beautiful style and luxurious fabric make this maternity nightgown a must have for baby shower gifts and hospital bags it’s the ideal postpartum dress to wear when family and friends come to meet the new baby.
The criss-cross top and two-layer design allow easy access for nursing. Moms can pull the neckline down for effortless night feedings or split the two layers for more discreet daytime breastfeeding.
Unlike other maternity gowns, this breastfeeding nightgown doesn't have elastic bands all the way around the chest, so it's super comfortable. Made from ultra-soft Modal that stays cool to the touch, this breastfeeding dress is a delightful addition to your wardrobe.
Cassidy looks adorable in this dress. She is doing such a wonderful job being a mama to my precious new grand daughter!
