A while back Medela sent me one of their sleep nursing bras for review. A sleep bra is a a nursing mom's necessity. I wear either this or a nursing tank top to sleep every night. I still need to wear nursing pads, so the sleep bra is a good way to keep those in place without being too tight. A bra that is too tight or that is worn for too long can put pressure on the milk ducts and cause plugged ducts or even mastitis. Switching to a comfortable bra in the evening is a must!
I am normally around a size 34 B and the small fits. Its a bit small in the straps and rides up in the back a bit, I'd say these run a bit small. It is super easy to pull aside the cup to nurse. I've worn and washed this many times now and the bra is holding its shape well. Its available in nude, white, and limited edition blue.
Do you wear a sleep bra at night? Are there other breastfeeding must-haves that you can think of? I'll be chatting about some of my favorites this week, so stay tuned!
Thanks Medela for sending me the sleep bra to review. All opinions expressed are my own.
