Navy version not the same as the others

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I have 4 of these nursing bras in a 34E, 2 black, 1 nude and 1 navy. In general they are brilliant, easy to do up one handed, give good shape and support (no mono boobs) and don't show round breast pad shapes through cotton tops. They look great too and I have matching knickers with each bra. They do come up a little high at the front for me so they sometimes show slightly under a vest, but then I find that with a lot of the larger cup styles. My only gripe is that the navy one is causing me pain under one boob. The band seems to rub or dig in on that side leaving me with a red inflamed patch. I had to wear sleep bras and use nipple cream on it for a few days for it to go down as it was painful and itchy to wear a more structured nursing bra. I then wore the other colours no problem, but as soon as I wore the navy one again the same thing happened. I can't see anything wrong with the bra so it seems that the fit is just very slightly different. Such a shame as I bought 3 pairs of knickers to match as well.

Bigger cup sizes please!

I love this bra. I’ve bought it for pregnancy and now for nursing. It’s probably the prettiest nursing bra on the market and comes in 3 nice colours (a 4th pink one I spotted on-line elsewhere). It doesn’t give much separation but I think that’s tricky with a non-wired. It gives a lifted-up shape and has pretty good support so less pressure on your back. My one complaint? The cup size range. My pre-pregnancy size of 32HH would have fitted most bras but am now a 38J and likely to be a 36KK on nursing. It would be great if Panache could make this bra in those bigger cup sizes (say up to a K/ L) as I’m sure there would be a market for them - even if they only did it one colour! The range of nursing bras at the top end of the cup size range is woefully limited.

Comfy but not supportive

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

If your chest is large, this one is not for you. It's super comfy. But it gives zero support. My chest jiggles when I walk, too, which I'm not a fan of. But it's great for a dressed down day. I just can't use this to work.

Pretty & practical

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

As nursing bras go, this is both practical and attractive - easy to open with one hand, washable, and it looks like a 'normal' bra. However the non-wired style doesn't give such a good shape, and in particular I find my breast shells/ pads are more visible than under other styles.

Comfortable and stylish

I love this bra, I find it very comfortable and think it looks pretty elegant on too - my husband certainly seems to like it! Easy to use clips make breastfeeding out and about much less stressful. I also find it provides great support. Only given 4 stars as compared to some other nursing bras I have fr Bravissimo the girls certainly don’t look quite as perky in this bra! It also came up a little small and had to go up a cup size.

Brilliant pregnancy bra

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This is ultra comfortable if you have sore boobs in early pregnancy and surprisingly supportive. Get them to fit you in store though as you will most likely need a completely different size if you want to make sure have some more room to grow. I’ve therefore put true to size but can’t really judge that as bought as a pregnancy bra. I’ve also put 5 stars for fit and style - obviously not going to get same lift/ shape as underwired so it’s 5 stars based on comparison with other non wired ones.
