I received a sample for review. All opinions are of my own.
When you’ve got a little one that’s still nursing, having a comfortable nursing bra is so important. I remember I had a hard time finding one that offered me enough support yet was comfortable and easy to open for breastfeeding. The new Bravado yoga nursing bra meets all of those nursing bra needs and more.
The Body Silk Seamless Yoga Nursing Bra, known as the most comfortable bra in the world, is perfect for low impact activity like Yoga, Pilates, walking, or even just to wear around the house while keeping up with baby. It features Silverbreeze, an anti-microbial technology that prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria. It also comes with criss-cross straps and is made with a 4-way stretch fabric to mold to your changing shape and even comes with removable foam inserts.
I went with the charcoal color, but it also comes in pink. This bra is seriously so incredibly comfortable. Although I’m no longer nursing my son, I love that this comes with a Bra Conversion Kit (BCK) which allowed me to turn it back into a “regular” bra. The bra feels very supportive and I’ve been wearing it to my yoga classes and haven’t once felt it ride up or dig into my skin. The best part is, even though I get sweaty, it doesn’t get all stinky like my normal yoga bra would.
Being a new mom with a nursing baby can be stressful. I remember I didn’t even want to leave the house to go to the gym for yoga and often found myself trying to exercise at home. Here are some great poses from Latham Thomas – pre- and post-natal yoga teacher with a clientele of celebrity mamas, maternity lifestyle guru & founder of Mama Glow, for pregnant and new moms to help you feel most comfortable.
Child’s Pose (Restore): This gentle stretch calms the brain, helping to relieve stress and fatigue, along with back and neck pain. It also helps stretch the hips, thighs and ankles. Here is a variation to the pose. Instructional Tip: Kneel down to your mat and touch your big toes together. Then, press your hips back toward your heels, separate your knees to hips-width and lay your torso down onto the floor or a bolster. Simply breathe deeply and rest for 5-to-10 breaths to feel the benefits.
Leg Drain (Rejuvenate): Leg drain pose is an easy way to refresh and combat sleep deprivation by boosting circulation and helping to drain lymph and other fluids that have pooled in your legs, angles and feet. Here is one variation to the pose and an alternate variation. Instructional Tip: Find a wall and, lay on your back with your legs straight up against the wall. If you want, lay a folded blanket or towel under your lower back for extra comfort. Now, rest in this posture for 20 minutes; it’s equivalent to taking a two-hour nap!
Reclined Cobbler’s Pose (Restore): Reclined cobbler’s pose is a restorative posture that supports the spine and opens the chest and heart area. This is especially comforting for nursing moms who often suffer mid back and shoulder pain from hunching forward and flexing shoulders with little or improper cushion support when breastfeeding. Here is a variation to the pose. Instructional Tip: Stack blocks on an angle and lay your bolster over the blocks so it is at a 45- degree angle. Bring your sacrum to the base of the bolster, press hands into the floor and feet into the floor as you gently lie back. Allow the spine to rest over the bolster, relax your neck and head and open your chest. Draw the soles of your feet together and let the knees splay out to the sides. Rest your arms to the sides, palms face up.
This is truly an amazing bra. It’s so comfortable and easy to use when nursing that I couldn’t imagine wanting to wear any other bra. If you’re looking for the perfect nursing bra, look no further than the Body Silk Seamless Yoga Nursing Bra from Bravado.
