Cake Maternity Rock Candy Luxury Seamless Nursing Bra Review
A few good bras are definitely a maternity essential! Your breasts can change quite a lot during pregnancy and even more post-partum when they start making milk. You need something that’s supportive and comfortable and preferably something that will allow for changes in size during your pregnancy.
I’m a fan of seamless, soft nursing bras for pregnancy and beyond. I have quite a wide rib cage but small breast — I would usually wear a 36A which is quite a rare size. I struggle to find regular bras but nursing bras are much easier for me because the soft ones have that stretchiness that ensures a good fit.
I’m currently 12 weeks pregnant with Baby No. 3 and using the Cake Maternity Rock Candy Luxury Seamless Nursing Bra (£34.90) which is easily the most comfortable bra I’ve ever worn! The fit is perfect and it feels like it’s made for me.
It’s supportive and comfortable and has removable contoured thin foam cups for shape and best of all it will grow with you to accommodate the changes your bust goes through during pregnancy and beyond.
The bra comes in sizes S, M, L and XL and is available in five neutral colours. I have it in Brown but it’s more like a dark purple-red wine colour in real life.
The back has a regular opening which is familiar and convenient. It has six hook and eye extensions so that you can easily adjust it to fit your needs.
The fabric is stretchy and good quality, made with anti-pill yarn to stay looking nice. The side panel offers extra support and the shoulder straps are grippy to restrict slipping and increase support. You can choose to cross these over at your back if you prefer too.
There are no itchy labels as the care labels are simply stamped onto the fabric. This is a huge plus for me as my skin becomes more sensitive during pregnancy and things like labels can really irritate my skin.
It’s machine washable on cool, but I have washed it several times at 40 degrees and that works well too. Of course, the cups are easy to open and close for breastfeeding too which is a must when it comes to nursing bras!
Cake Maternity bras come packaged very beautifully which is a lovely touch as pregnancy comes with few luxuries and not much glamour so it’s nice with a bit of extra care and attention to detail.
Cake Maternity also have a guide that helps you choose the best bra for your stage of pregnancy which is very handy.
