Bravado Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}


A little over a month ago I found the nursing bra of my dreams from Bravado. You can read my review here. After wearing my Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra, I became a Bravado believer. You can imagine my excitement when I was offered the opportunity to review one of Bravado's newest bras: The Allure. Sounds sexy, doesn't it? I promise, it looks as sexy as it sounds.

But Bravado isn't simply about making a nursing bra that looks good (which by the way, they mastered successfully). Bravado maintains it's focus on breast health. Some of the features of this bra that make it extraordinary are:
The Underwire: The wire in the Allure is wider and rounder to equally distribute weight; along the sides the underwire itself is shorter than the underwire channel. This is to avoid pinching or constriction of the breast tissue.
Spacer Fabric: Used in the cups to ensure breathability and to keep you feeling cool and dry. What is Spacer Fabric exactly? Spacer Fabric is a layered light-weight and breathable material that is produced by a special knitting process giving it 3-dimensional properties. The 3-dimensional stretch also means that it can beautifully accommodate your changing shape.
The Allure is a nursing bra with beauty and brains. Comfortable, sexy, and built specifically for a nursing mommy. Bravado has done it again!!
Other features of the Allure worth mentioning:
Stunning features such as molded, smooth and lightly-lined cups, and a low center front, make this bra a wonderful staple for your nursing lingerie wardrobe.
Mesh under the lace on the sides and bands of all sizes to add further support and strength, and create a thin layer between your body and the lace (for those women who enjoy the look of lace, but have especially sensitive skin - this mesh layer gives you both benefits).
Amazing underwire support while maintaining good breast health.
Easy double-cup sizing system, for a great fit that will accommodate your size fluctuations.
Feminine touches such as soft, non-scratchy lace and lightly embroidered straps which are all invisible under clothing and give the bra a hint of sensuality.
Easy nursing features, including cups that drop fully and easily away from the breast to promote skin-to-skin contact with baby, and signature B-Clips that lie flat under clothing and provide one-handed nursing access.

As the ultimate test, I actually slept in this bra...an underwire. While it was not as comfortable as my other nighttime nursing bras, I was not at all bothered by the wire or the lace. My husband was not at all bothered by it's beauty, and my baby was not at all bothered by feeding time because access is simple and fast.
Once again, I am thoroughly impressed by the thought and innovation that has gone into each and every Bravado nursing bra, and the Allure is at the top of that list! Pick up yours today!

  13. I have two favorite features, but first would definitely have to be the little feminine embellishments!!! Lace! Thank you! Embroidery! Thank you again! Also, the ability to increase or decrease cup size is phenomenal. Truly.

  71. First of all, I love that the allure comes in really big sizes, I can never find a nursing bra to fit! I also love how you get the look of lace on the outside, but on your skin there is mesh- I have sensitive skin!
