Bella Materna Review and Giveaway

Am I the only one who had a hard time finding a nursing bra? When I was pregnant with Balian this time last year, I was scrambling to get my hospital bag packed and was frantically looking for an acceptable nursing bra. When I finally did come across some nursing bras at a well known area store, I was disappointed in the selection and the quality, but had little time to spare, so I had to make do with what I could find. After my milk came in and it was time for me to sport nursing bras 'round the clock, I wished and hoped to find a better bra. I felt that the ones I had were ugly- just plain white, nude, black and polka dotted blue and white. The straps wouldn't adjust right, no matter what I did, and they offered hardly any support to my new boobs! I'm very small-chested, so having bigger breasts was new to me, and my bras weren't helping me to feel comfortable in my new mommy skin.

A couple of months ago, I was offered the chance to review a nursing bra from a company called Bella Materna. They specialize in- you guessed it... maternity and nursing wear. Bella Materna is your one stop shop for luxury maternity wear. Their beautiful, yet comfortable styles celebrate a new mom's changing body through pregnancy and post-natal. Bella Materna launched in 2000, with an exclusive line of panties that sit just below the tummy. Bella Materna has since expanded to include nursing bras, camisoles, loungewear, sleepwear, maternity and transition pieces and under garments. Their piece are made of fine Italian nylon/lycra and beautiful French lace. These lovely garments will make every new mom feel beautiful, while keeping them comfortable.

 French Lace Padded Nursing Bra...

I was sent the gorgeous French Lace Padded Nursing Bra in plum. When my package arrived from Bella Materna, I could hardly wait to open it. It had been way too long since I had owned a pretty bra. Right- I was expecting pretty, but the photo I viewed on the Bella Materna website (albeit beautiful) did not do the actual garment justice. I was glowing when I removed the lacy bra from its confines. As I touched the lace covering the padding, I immediately sensed the high quality of my lovely new bra. I loved everything about the way it looked... the beautiful lace, the lovely plum color, the hooks and straps, and the padded cups. My husband also loved the way it looked, by the way, and couldn't wait for me to try it on. When I tried it on, it fit perfectly! I didn't have to adjust a thing, which was truly a God-send, because I usually have to spend a lot of time adjusting and re-adjusting bra straps, and new mommas just don't have that kind of time. I loved the way it felt on my skin, and even with my post-baby body, I felt a little inkling of sexiness creep back into my life. I tucked the bra into my lingerie drawer and knew the the true test would follow in the days to come.

The next day, I put my new bra on from Bella Materna and went about my new mommy business. I was eager for Balian's mid-morning feeding so I could test the bra out. When feeding time arrived, the cup unsnapped with ease, and didn't seem to be in Balian's way, as some of my other nursing bras were. It also allowed full access to my breast, and didn't cover anything up, which was great for Balian! As the day wore on, so did the bra- but it wore extremely well. My straps stayed in place all day long, and my breasts had full support, which was a wonderful feeling. Pregnancy and mommyhood absolutely changes your breasts shape, and size and Bella Materna's bras are wonderful for all of the transitions we go through as mommies. 

Features include:
  • Lactation consultant approved Flexy wires for safety and comfort
  • One-handed nursing clip access
  • Adjustable straps
  • Four stage hook and eye closure at back
  • Infinity rings to convert your nursing bra to non-nursing
  • Oeko-tex certified to be to be toxin free

Now that Balian hardly nurses anymore (he's weaned himself), I still wear my bra from Bella Materna. They have infinity rings, which switch the bra from nursing to non-nursing! How clever is that? I have a feeling that it will always be my very favorite bra, and I know that when little baby Witt #2 comes down the road, I can confidently purchase maternity and nursing wear from this wonderful company! I would encourage you to do the same, and tell all of your friends about Bella Materna!
