Labor of Love Giveaway #3: Bravado

I was fortunate enough to successfully breastfeed both of my daughters.  I had absolutely NO problems with my first daughter, so I thought breastfeeding would be a cinch with number two.  Wrong!  Aubrie had a much harder time learning what to do, and as a result, I was in a lot more pain.  I will admit that I almost gave up a few times, but I stuck it out and was able to breastfeed for 8 months.

One of the products that made breastfeeding easier was the Bravado nursing tanks.  I LIVED in my Bravado tanks while at home on Maternity Leave.  I am telling you, these tanks are super comfy and the latches are easy to manipulate with one hand (not to mention they are cute, too!).

From the Bravado Designs website:

From those small beginnings with an idea around a kitchen table, Bravado quickly built a strong reputation as having comfortable, stylish, and quality nursing bras. Lactation Consultants, Midwives, Childbirth Educators and others in the healthcare community quickly started recommending our products to their moms, and still do to this day.

Now, Bravado Designs’ products are worn and loved by moms worldwide, including celebrity moms like Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Garner and Jessica Alba. Although many things have changed since our beginnings all those years ago, one thing never will: our commitment to bolster and enhance the self-esteem of pregnant and nursing moms.”


This September, Bravado launched their new Allure Underwire Nursing Bra and Sublime Nursing Bra!  The Allure combines style with good breast health and features three dimensional stretch in the cups, round wide wire which subtly distributes weight, full drop cups and Bravado B-clips for one handed access.  And guess what? It’s PRETTY, too!  The Allure bra is recommended for moms who have established nursing for at least 6-8 weeks.


The Sublime Nursing Bra has all the fabulous features of a Bravado Nursing Bra:  full cup drop, Bravado B-clips, cotton lined cups and now soft, delicate lace to provide beautiful design elements.  Just because you are nursing doesn’t mean you can’t have gorgeous lingerie!

I recommend Bravado Designs to all of my friends expecting a baby, so I am pleased to announce that Bravado is allowing one Not-So-Blog winner to choose either an Allure Nursing Tank and matching boy short, or Sublime Nursing Bra and matching panty set!  Be one of the first to experience the new designs by Bravado!

  76. Meeeoow-za! I would definately choose the sublime! I saw the sublime on at a lingerie runway show in February, and my friends and I went ga-ga over it. We had NO idea that it was a nursing bra! Imagine our delight, knowing that our lingerie futures would not be compromised with this lovely bra out there!

    Thanks for the entry!
