You all have been asking and asking for a post on my favorite nursing bras and gowns. AND that post is still coming, I promise. I just want to make sure I use them all for at least a month or two to see how they hold up after multiple washes and milk stains!
I have been trying different all different kinds of bras since Miller’s birth and wanted to finally share the best full coverage nursing bra with you guys.
The Best Full Coverage Nursing Bra
When Soma reached out and asked me if I would like to review their Full Coverage Contour Nursing Bra I jumped at the chance. I have worn nothing but nursing bras since Miller’s birth and I had been in the hunt for that ‘perfect’ bra.
What is the ‘perfect’ nursing bra? It is the bra that you can wear out of your house, around your house, and that you can sleep in comfortably! This Full Coverage Contour Nursing Bra from Soma is exactly what all of us mamas have been looking for.
We all know that everything from Soma is insanely soft. This nursing bra is no exception. What I wasn’t prepared for was the fact that you can hardly feel the wiring. When they say ‘plush’ underwire in the description they are NOT exaggerating!
Here is a list of everything else you get with this amazing bra:
- Full coverage bra is built from the existing Embraceable Full Coverage Bra style.
- Extended, padded hook-and-eye closure with 4 adjustments for a comfortable and flexible fit.
- Soft, brushed microfiber fabric.
- Super soft elastic and straps.
- Contour and lightly padded cups.
- Two-ply ballet back for no-slip straps.
- 81% Nylon, 19% Spandex.
Since this is a full coverage contour nursing bra, you don’t have to be embarrassed to leave the house in it. Meaning it will keep everything covered and perfectly shaped inside your blouse. This is the perfect bra to run errands in and to wear to work. I typically just wear it around the house every day and I usually always sleep in it!
Oh, and the milk stains wash right out in the laundry machine with a little stain remover!
For sizing, I actually recommend getting your normal size pre-milk. You will want to wear this bra long after you stop nursing too. It has 4 adjustments in that back if you need to make it a little bigger. I actually first went with one size up so that it would fit when I was engorged but then had the problem of the cup being way too big after I nursed. I ended up returning it and grabbing my regular size and it fits perfectly whether I am full or not.
I also talk a lot about the importance of being able to unclip a nursing bra with one hand. IT IS EVERYTHING! I cannot stand bras that are super hard to clasp and unclasp. This bra is super easy to manage with just one hand, making it one of my favorite nursing bras that I own.
You can listen to me go on and on about this nursing bra all day. But, if you want more opinions you can check out the reviews online. 4.6/5 stars with 74 reviews! That is incredible.
Basically, you just need to buy the bra, get it in, and try it on to see how amazing it is. Soma is so confident with their products that they offer free returns (return labels are included in the packaging) within 60 days. They also want you to love the experience you have with their clothing.
I also asked Soma if I could ‘review’ some of their pajamas hehe. I have always loved Soma’s intimates and pajamas. I have a couple other bras from them (non-nursing) and one other pj set (it has swans all over it and is sooo cute!)
I picked out this gown because I knew it would be easy to pull the lace straps down and nurse in it. The straps are really stretchy and I just drop them off my shoulder and unclasp my bra.
Their gowns are so incredibly soft guys! This one just feels like a cloud (if you could actually feel a cloud haha!) I love that it adds a little spice with the lace slit at the bottom too. Makes me feel a bit like myself again when I wear it.
Here are some other gowns and pajamas that would be great for nursing:
Check out Soma ASAP and start feeling like yourself again, sleep more comfortably, and stop your search of that ‘perfect’ nursing bra! I promise you will fall in love with this brand just like I have.
