MomTested: Glamourmom Mbody Starter Nursing Bra
November 22, 2010
Glamourmom is famous for their comfy nursing bra tanks, so when I heard about their new Mbody Starter Nursing Bra, I was game for trying it out. Overall impression? It’s a great nursing bra for new moms. Here’s why:
It’s comfortable! The soft cotton/elastine fabric provides fantastic support (no underwire here), and it’s super-stretchy to accommodate fluctuating cup sizes. The bra actually runs over two cup sizes and it has a generous chest band, so when your body is getting used to the breastfeeding process (AKA engorgement), this is the only bra you’ll need.
The bra is fantastic to wear during the day, but the one-handed nursing clasp makes it ideal as a sleep nursing bra, too. The full drop nursing flap encourages skin-to-skin contact with baby, and the high-cut front makes it look like a layering tank when you’re wearing it underneath a low-cut top.
The only one thing that was an issue was the sizing. I normally wear a 38C, which they don’t carry, so they sent their equivalent 34-36 D/DD. I was pretty skeptical that it would fit—much less be comfortable—but I was pleasantly surprised. True to their word, it fit like a glove and really, who wouldn’t want to “shrink” a few bra sizes down!
