The Bravado Body Silk is a very comfortable, soft, well-made bra. I love that the cups open up really wide, and that it's seamless and soft.

Critiques: It doesn't offer much in the way of support; it doesn't so much support as it flattens. I feel it makes me look droopy or dowdy, and I'm not large-busted! Also the range of sizes should be just a bit wider. I normally wear a 30 band (a 32 immediately postpartum), so the Small (for band sizes 32-36) in this bra requires constant adjustment due to the band being too loose. Another thing that bothers me is that the lining is microfiber. Nursing bras should be lined with cotton, or at the very least, a cotton blend.

All in all, I'm happy with this bra for the postpartum period while everything is still tender and fluctuating (and you don't care what you look like). After that, it's just a backup for me when everything else is in the laundry!

HerRoom Response: Thank you for pointing out that you are actually a 30 band size. This bra is not designed to fit your size in it's size S. Sara from Buffalo, NY

One of the most comfortable bras I own. I can wear it all day without wanting to kill myself or anyone around me. The sizing, unfortunately, doesn't work perfectly for me. I'm a 34 F/G, and the Medium is just a bit too big around and not quite big enough in the cups. However, I'm still giving this 5 stars because that's what the size chart indicates. Great, comfortable bra! Brenda from Roanoke, VA

Best nursing bra yet (and I have tried MANY) Good support, SUPER comfortable. I wear it day and night. I am tan, and only wish the butterscotch color was a little more dark (I can see it under white T's). I will purchase another. YGP from Houston, TX

I love the texture and feel of this bra! I forget that I'm wearing one! I'm in my last trimester and was looking for a supportive/ comfortable bra with no under-wire (all I ever wore) as those started to dig into me whenever I sat down. I read the other reviews about the foam cups inside and yes I can see what they are talking about however I don't see them through my shirts (they are so super thin) nor are they bothersome in any other way. I think if it was made in any other way it would look/fit worse overall. So thank you Bravado for making this bra, please make more colors. Thank you HerRoom for getting it to me faster than ever anticipated! Marina from NY

There are some drawbacks to this bra, but overall I really love it. First, the pad can give great shaping, support, and coverage, but tended to need readjustment after nursing. I took a needle and thread and sewed the pad in place, anchoring it to the band of the bra with just 3-4 stitches to take care of that. The bra is cut high...but then again what isn't that gives support to a larger cup AND comfort AND no wire? And the best feature---when I was done nursing I cut the stay straps off, and then I had a super-comfy light sports bra that gave good shaping and coverage AND could be converted to x-back WHILE I WORE THE BRA! I still use this bra for yoga. It is THAT comfortable and flattering. d from ohio

I grew from a 32B to at least a 34D while nursing (hard to say exactly, since my size depended on when my baby had last nursed!). I love this bra, it cannot be beat for comfort and support. However I tended to only wear it around the house, because it is cut so darn high. It showed under almost all of my scoop and v-neck shirts--the very shirts I wanted to wear for easier nursing. This bra only stayed hidden under high neck shirts that I'd have to pull up, rather than down, to nurse. So it didn't really work for public wearing. Disappointing. Claire from Boston ma

This is my second nursing bra. It's very comfortable. I'm size 34D and the M fits perfectly! It also provides good support. One thing I do wish is the cut was lower so I could wear slightly lower cut t-shirt and not have the bra exposed. CA from Boston, MA

This is one of the better nursing bras I have found. I like that it has thin pads (good for shape and for possible leaking) but they fold when I go to nurse and don't fix themselves when I'm done. It is hard to fix them when nursing in public. I am normally a 36DDD and ordered a medium. It works but by the end of the day the cups seem too small (or I'm no longer in it properly) and I flow over. I'm afraid if I went to a large I wouldn't have the support I need. Cassie from Mesa, AZ

I usually wear a 44E in nursing bras. I have a Bravado I love and was hoping this would be similar. Sadly, it does not offer enough support for a full figured lady. I will return it and try another brand. Anne-Marie from Leesburg, VA

This bra is so comfortable! I received it yesterday and already have it on today. I still have 4 weeks until my due date, but I can tell this is going to be my favorite nursing bra....and I'll probably wear it after nursing, it feels that good. My original bra size is 36DD, and I moved up to a 36 DDD/F during my pregnancy. I used to always wear underwires because they gave me more support, but this bra is unbelievably great. Wonderful support, and great comfort! Worth the price for sure. BRAVO, BRAVADO!! Tara from Rockville, MD

I love this bra. It is so comfortable and looks great under knits. The fabric is very stretchy and the entire garment is seamless. I love that the straps fit. Being petite, I have a shorter torso, and sometimes the straps are too long and they end up slipping off my shoulders. With this bra, I can adjust the straps to get a perfect fit. I will be buying more. Anna from Connecticut

This Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra is so comfortable and so supportive. It allows for flexibility for size changes as nursing demands change. I am a full figure mom and other bras have been comfortable enough for overnight wear but not supportive enough for daytime. This Bra is surprisingly supportive for such a soft and comfortable bra. The "Butterscotch" color is great for under sheer or white tops. It has a deeper V and can work with a t-shirt or silk blouse. I recommend this to any fuller figure mom who may be wondering if support and comfort can really come together in a great nursing bra! I love it! Mary from Toronto

I bought this bra on a friend's recommendation and am back today to buy my third, mainly because I need a black nursing bra and my others are ivory. This is my favorite nursing bra of all time. I have four other styles that I pass over to wear this one instead. It is comfortable and provides good shape. I have no problems with the removable foam pads creasing or being visible. It does limit the necklines I can wear, but I'll just save the shirts I can't wear with this bra for when I'm done nursing. Two thumbs up. Jennifer from Fort Worth, Texas

This is a very comfortable and seamless bra. I bought it to wear after my daughter was born and my size was changing so much. It was a great purchase. Hazel from Chicago

I returned this bra because I was looking for something to wear around the house and wanted a bit more support than the bra offered. It would be a great bra to sleep in, but pricey for that purpose. Erin from Winter Garden, FL

This bra is the only one that I've been wearing since giving birth two months ago. It is very comfortable, nice material, easy to undo the snaps, and supportive enough for me (I'm a D when nursing, B/C before getting pregnant). I have it in all 3 sizes. I'm very happy with it. irene from boston, ma

I had trouble finding a nursing bra that fit comfortably. A friend recommended this bravado design and I am very happy I purchased it. It was worth the extra money that I spent. Very comfortable and nice that it's seamless. Definitely my favorite nursing bra so far. Leah from Minnesota

This bra is perfect for a petite size woman. My prepregnancy bra size was 32B and this bra fits perfectly and comfortably. If you are petite and having a hard time finding a comfy nursing bra, this bra is for you. I give 4 stars because there are two things I do not like. The snap is quite hard to undo when a baby is frantically crying for milk. Also the hooks in the back are too small/too level and hard to reach for fastening. However, I am very satisfied with the quality of this bra. hf from virginia

I only used t-shirt bras when I breastfed and the bravado is the best. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This is a very comfortable bra with one exception - the wide band underneath tends to fold and needs to be readjusted. I'm a 38D (and an older mom with not-as-perky-as-they-used-to-be boobs!) and have found that it is supportive enough without an underwire. The material is great and feels nice. I haven't found that the soft cups show through my clothing but I haven't started wearing tighter T-shirts since my pregnancy. I don't tend to use the soft cups when I'm just staying home but save the shape for going out of the house, then they don't bend when I nurse. I haven't had any trouble with the one hand clasp and it works well for me. I would imagine that once this bra has been worn consistently it will become a sleep bra for me, but for now, the support is very good. Jill from TX

The fabric of this bra is extremely comfortable. I bought a size large even though I wear a 36G and it is made for up to a 36F. I bought this bra specifically for sleeping and lounging around the house. It does serve that purpose well. However, it does not provide enough support for me to consider wearing out of the house. It comes with removable thin pads to help conceal nursing pads, but they are useless as they get creases in them when you drop the cup. On a positive note, this bra is very stretchy, so if your breasts engorge a bit during the night with longer spaces between feedings or during engorgement, it stretches without hurting your breasts. I gave the bra 3 stars because it is a very, very comfortable sleeping bra, but it is not practical for daily wear, which makes it an expensive sleep bra! Ishe's mama from Tacoma, WA, USA
