Today I’m talking about—yes—bras on the blog. I’m so excited about Hotmilk Lingerie’s great undergarments for nursing moms. If you are breastfeeding, or have a friend who is, read on to find out more!
One of the things nobody tells you when you become a new moms is how many new clothes you need. Of course, you expect maternity clothes (although if you don’t work an office job, you can probably get away with low-rise jeans and your hubby’s T-shirts). It’s after that, when you’re adjusting to postpartum life and excited about getting back into your normal clothes, that you realize… nursing requires its own wardrobe too. At least on top.
Now, you can get away with wearing stretchy tops and jeans or skirts, as I have for years. Your normal wardrobe can be adjusted for nursing, just as it can for pregnancy, though a few pieces will probably go until baby weans. An essential part of your nursing wardrobe, however, is a nursing bra.
I’ve worn through a few of these over the past years. Most of mine are stretched out and threadbare now, because it’s hard to go shopping for bras with children in tow. And because your size changes throughout your nursing career, it can be hard to find the right fit. I’ve been meaning to shop for a new nursing bra for
months okay since Pearl was born, but I wasn’t looking forward to digging through the limited, blah selection of nursing bras at my local department store.
That’s why I’m so excited about Hotmilk Lingerie. If you think nursing bra means plain and boring (like I did), well, you need to check out Hotmilk Lingerie. Yes, nursing bras can be pretty and flirty and lacy and fun! Hotmilk Lingerie is designed for moms, by moms, and it shows.
Even better is the online shopping. Now, there was a time when I wouldn’t have thought of shopping online for a bra. Since then, I’ve shopped online for a lot of other things. It’s easy. It’s comfy. Especially when I’m shopping for lingerie. As a mom with older kids, I don’t have to drag them shopping (and explain what I’m shopping for). Thinking back to those days when I was a new young mom with leaky boobs and a fussy baby… yeah, I wasn’t going to the store for a bra then either, no matter how badly I needed it.
Shopping at Hotmilk Lingerie was so easy. I looked up their sizing chart and measured myself. (Hello, new bra size, thanks to nine years of nursing babies…) Hotmilk Lingerie has bras in cup sizes from A to H, because they know moms come in all sizes (especially after baby). Then I browsed the bras by my size until I found a cute little white number. It showed up in the mail a short time later and I tried it on. Perfect fit!
Now, having a cute new bra that fits perfectly makes me really tired of my old bras. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got more shopping to do, now that I know my size…
