As anyone goes through pregnancy, it’s a given that our bodies will change. What we don’t always anticipate is how our bodies can continue to change for months and even years afterward, especially if we add subsequent pregnancies to the mix.
We’re not just talking about a baby bump, either. Expectant mamas can also expect their bra size to increase by a cup or two during pregnancy and while nursing. Then, as the postpartum period goes on and the baby weans, women’s breasts often go back to their former size—or even a bit smaller. And that’s not all! The volume and positioning of breasts can also change throughout this process.
While navigating physical changes, it can do wonders to find comfortable bras made with mamas’ bodies and needs in mind—which is exactly what Bravado Designs is committed to creating. Founded by two mamas in 1992 who were frustrated by the lack of functional and stylish nursing bras, Bravado creates the kind of bras that women actually want to wear.
Bravado does this all while using sustainable, ethically sourced materials. Doing right by Mother Earth isn’t just about using the best materials or manufacturing practices, either. From the durable construction to the adaptable designs, Bravado bras are made to last: Before hitting the market, every design undergoes a rigorous 52 wash test to ensure the bra will be just as amazing after dozens of wears and continue to perform throughout her journey. That means less waste that winds up in landfills and more reliable bras in your wardrobe.
With inclusive sizing (up to J cups!) and stylish designs (yes, even on nursing bras!), Bravado gives your girls the support you deserve for every stage of your motherhood journey. Here are five of our favorite bras…
