Blessed Event #4- Bella Materna Review and Giveaway

*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*
With all the new updated styles in maternity wear, why shouldn't the nursing bra be stylish as well?

At Bella Materna you get just that! Bella Materna offers beautiful, high quality nursing bras in a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes.

About Bella Materna:

Bella Materna is the premier source for luxury nursing & maternity essentials. Our aim is to create sophisticated styles and beautifully crafted designs that celebrate a womans changing body during this amazing phase of her life.

Launched in 2000 with an exclusive line of panties that fit just under the belly,
the Bella Materna collection has since expanded to include nursing bras, camisoles, sleepwear, transition, workout and loungewear all designs reflecting the belief that women grow more beautiful during pregnancy and nursing, and what they wear should enhance, not hide, this loveliness.

Using intrinsic elements of style, design, fit and comfort, Bella Materna has revolutionized the nursing braproving that fashion and function can beautifully coexist. The nursing line is designed with discreet and easy access but are stylish, versatile and flattering during the pregnancy and post pregnancy phases.

Bella Materna products are made from high quality, imported Italian Nylon/Lycra and French Lace. All items are manufactured within the United States and are always produced under safe healthy conditions.

My Experience:

When searching for a nursing bra I wanted one that not only gave enough support but that would also have slight padding for greater coverage. Nothing looks more tacky then seeing nursing pads through your shirt.

When I was given the opportunity to review one of Bella Maternas nursing bras, I choose the Lightly Padded Nursing Bra in nude color. This nursing bra is amazing. The only part of the bra that remotely resembles a nursing bra is the clasps at the top for nursing. This bra is as beautiful as any regular non-nursing bra. It comes with underwire for added support and just the right amount of padding (enough to cover but not add bulk). This bra is easy to open for nursing and can be opened and shut with one hand. It is light weight and comfortable.

Not only was I pleased with Bella Maternas nursing bra but the customer service I received was amazing as well. I had some trouble figuring out what size bra to choose and Anne at Bella Materna was most helpful in answering my questions and made sure I found the perfect size.

Lightly Padded Nursing Bra

More Info. on the Lightly Padded Nursing Bra:
  • Molded foam stretch cup forms to your changing body

I really like that this company has band sizes down to a 32, it is SO hard to find a 32 band size in a nursing bra locally!
I like a few of their products. The French Lace bra might be my favorite though. I nurse my babies for up to 2 years and going that long in an 'ugly' bra always gets me down. I miss my cute bras by the time the first year is up I always wished more companies would make nursing bras that look more like a normal bra.
I also like the Lily Pads, luckily those are available locally. :D
