So look, if you’ve just hatched a person, YOU GET TO WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT. I understand the desire for comfort above anything. I do. You just made a human being and then got it out of your body. You deserve to wear whatever the hell you feel good in. Seriously. You made a person. However, I know there are some women out there who genuinely feel better when they’re wearing something they like the look of, and that goes for their wire-free bras and nursing bras as well. With that in mind, here are some lovely-yet-functional bras for your constantly-changing boobs (woo!).
First up, for the Dance of the Reed Flutes/Candy Canes, a cotton, peppermint-striped delight by Elle MacPherson:
HotMilk is, I think, one of the more awkwardly-named brands ever, but I think their products are seriously lovely, and the philosophy that pregnant and nursing women deserve beautiful, sexy lingerie too? I’m totally on board. They’re also one of the few brands that uses actual, you know, pregnant models? What a thought. Check out their website for some pretty lounge and sleep options too!
Freya released their lovely “Rosie” nursing bra and soft cup bra in a fabulous Black/Fuschia color this year:
Here’s another full-bust favorite, this time from Panache. This is the wire-free bra in soft mesh lace, which is great for moms-to-be, and there’s also a nursing bra (with several points of adjustment to accomodate changing shape and size) in the range, for new moms.
Finally, I love this one. It’s cozy and pretty and comfy and lacy, somehow all at the same time (also, the brand is called Cake, so I had to love it):
That wraps up my holiday picks for 2012! A very happy Hanukkah and a very Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate! I hope you give and receive gifts that make you feel wonderful this year.
