Good supportive bra, bit poor sizing. I am a 34G. This bra states it's a 34F/G. I found it to be very small. Will definitely stay away from "group sizes" in the future. Would have for perfectly if I were a 34F.

Bravado Designs Response:Thank you for your feedback. We hope you continue to shop other Bravado styles to find your perfect fit. Melissa from Hammond/Lousisana/USA

Felt wonderful for the exact amount of time it took to make a decision to cut off the tags. Then it was extremely painful after 10 minutes, never got better. Waste of money.

I LOVE THIS BRA!!!! I have implants and have nursed 3 children for 9 months, 14 months and going on 23 months. It has enough padding to hide nipples and pads after feeding, but certainly does not add to your over-expanded bust line. It was not very comfortable when I first received it in the mail, but wears in quickly and is wonderful in between pregnancies. The only reason I am buying another is that the underwire poked through after 2 years of wearing daily... How awesome is that????? Jennifer from Reno

I usually wear 40, but 38 in this cup size fits great. The cups are generous and stretchy. Giving 4 stars as the fabric feels a bit too syntheticy for my taste, but I really do enjoy the bra. JT from MD

This was the only nursing bra I have tried on that felt like a "real" bra - a very good thing for me! I've been nursing for 9 months and don't plan on weaning any time soon, but I'm super tired of the "grow with you" type of nursing bra. Odds are I will end up buying at least one more of these. I'm sized at a 34G, and the fit on this bra was nearly perfect. My left side is a little later than my right, so I notice slight over flow, but not enough to be an issue at all.

Best nursing bra out there. This is my second one. I have a few cheap ones from another store, but the two Bravados are the ones I go to daily. Well-made, comfortable, and great for mamas with larger breasts. Marisa from PA

Comfortable even before washing, and fit well before and after nursing. Cups are stretchy, as advertised (which is good for fit), but moderately show the outline of erect nipples and badly show breast pads. Not as pretty in person, unfortunately (but comfy!). Unfortunately, one of the two hooks caught on something in the washer the first time I washed it, and became so badly mangled that the bra is unusable. I know bras aren't "supposed" to be machine washed, but I've been doing it for 15 years (6 years in this washer), and this is absolutely the first time this has ever happened to me. For it to happen the first time I washed the bra worries me. It's not an inexpensive bra, so I'm still not sure if I will replace it because I'm worried the same thing might happen again.

HerRoom Response: We're sorry you had a negative experience with your purchase. Try following the care labels in the future to keep the shape of the product, and so that the product will last longer. As a reference, try using the "See It Under" guide next to the image. This will help give you an idea of how the bra will look under different shirts. Kate from Cleveland, Ohio

Over all I like this bra. Based on my other bras this one runs a little large in the cup size. Christine from IL

The underwire is extremely uncomfortable. This may get better post pregnancy because my baby is so high. But I can't wear now. Way too expensive to just sit in the drawer. Jenn from FL

Great style nursing bra! I loved that it didn't come up as high on my chest, like most other nursing bras. The cup size, however, ran really small. I wear a 32DD in other styles, and the 32F/G was still too small in this one...disappointed! Sarah from Houston

I tried several nursing bra brands, including Bravado, Anita, and Elomi. I was a 34D prior to being pregnant, 36DD while pregnant, and 36G while nursing. The Bravado Bliss squished my boobs together uncomfortably. The Anita bras felt like torture devices & the extra support strap got in the way of my nursing pads. The Elomi ran huge to size. In all, I've tried close to 15 nursing bras and this is the only "keeper" I've found. It's still comfortable after 12 hours of wearing it. Runs true to size and fit guide, except the band recommended a 38 which was loose. I'm at 36 middle hook very comfortably. K

This bra either runs really small, or the cups are designed in a way that made me spill out in every way. I decided to go with another bra all together since it seemed like it was going to be an "OK" bra anyway. Not sure my review will help since it never fit properly to begin with. GP11 from Houston, TX

I was very excited about this bra, but was sadly disappointed when i tried it on. The underwire did not go all the way up the outside of the cup, so it finished about an inch and half from the material, which caused a terrible shape with boobs spilling over the edge. It was also abit on the small size which did not help. I was a 30E before pregnancy, so i thought this would definitly fit as i have also purchased the Anita bra in a 32 F and still have room to grow. Also the inside of the cup pushed down abit on my boobs causing the shape to look too spread out. I'm used to wearing Panache pre-pregnancy so am used to a nice rounded up front shape. So i'm yet to find the right prenancy/breast feeding bra!

Bravado Response: The Allure Underwire Nursing Bra was designed by and recommended by healthcare professionals. It was designed with breast health as the #1 focus. Wide underwire channel is for support, not for push up. Shorter underwire is to ensure no pressure is placed on milk ducts Not all bras fit the same- you may be in a different size in a different bra as it is make of different materials, different style and for a different purpose.If a bra is fitted correctly your breasts should fall half way between your shoulder and your elbow. There should be no pressure or ‘spillage’ at the sides or in the front or top of the bra (If you are experiencing ‘spillage’ and pressure anywhere in the cup, the bra is too small) Sharon from santa Cruz, CA USA

This didn't fit right. It was too small for a 34G. Also, it didn't support under the arm very well.

Bravado Response: Depending on what your pre-pregnancy size was and at what point you were measured during your pregnancy, it is likely you are in the wrong size. You could also try The Bliss Nursing Bra 125 which doesn't have any underwire and offers a flexifit channel instead. It also has a more generous volume in the cup than Allure. Dulcy from California

Very pretty bra, but the bra came up too high at the front bones so it would show in tops and summer dresses! Love the lacy sides! Kate from Texas

This bra is great! I have a lot from the bravado line and was so happy they came out with an underwire. This is a great back to work bra or wear after nursing for a little while. Bought the panties as well what a great set! Another winner bravado thanks! Claudia from NYC

I struggled with how many stars to give this bra because I really *want* to love it... I just don't. It gives me great shape and support, which is WAY more than I can say for any other nursing bra I've tried, but the fit is just not that great for me and it's not super comfortable. The lace around the ribcage and back is kind of itchy. I will continue to wear it because it's the best I have and it looks great under clothing, but I'll hope for something better to come along. I also agree with the original poster-- I wish they made it in nude. Jamie from Washington, DC

I wanted something that is padded, uplifting, cute, and easy to use. This bra fulfilled a couple of those guidelines. It seems to run small for anyone with larger breasts because when I haven't nursed in awhile I can definitely spill over the cup. It also shows my nipples which I was trying to avoid by getting a padded bra. I still haven't found a nursing bra that can do that. But it does support very well for me being rather busty and it does look really pretty on. My husband really likes the new bravado bras!

It looks smooth under clothes but will show through a white or light colored shirt. It's definitely not a nude color which I wished they made. Also, it's easy to unsnap and fold down for nursing and easy to hook back. All in all, a pretty good bra but not great. I might buy it again in black because it's better than the soft cups I have but I'd like to find something that covers better. Allison from TN, USA

I am going back to work and am ready for a regular bra even though I'm still nursing. I love that the cups are a D and E because sometimes I still change a bit in size between when I breastfeed my baby. Awesome bra! Hazel from Canada
