I really like this bra! It is so hard to find a nursing bra that still flatters you, but this one does and is very comfortable to wear all day. Wish I would have had one with my first baby...didn't get it because of the price, but I figured this time around I would go ahead and put the money out and it was/is worth it. I nurse for a year, so I figured since I would pay the same amount for a regular bra, why not the nursing bra too. Shawna from Bradenton, FL, USA

This bra was exactly the same as the one that I had purchased in a different color from a store and very true to size. Suzanne from CT, USA

Immediately felt comfortable in this bra! An excellent lift for sagging breasts (this is my fourth time breastfeeding!) and looks great under fitted tees. I am surprised this is wireless since the lift is so great! The material may show nipples but if you are wearing a nursing pad this isn't an issue. I use this bra for work when I can't pump for a stretch of time and it allows my breasts to "grow" without spilling. It is a shame with all my years of searching I didn't find this one with my first pregnancy. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I haven't worn it long enough to find out if it will eventually lose its shape. For now, I highly recommend it! Sherilyn from Minnesota

This bra is one of my favorites, mostly great with only a few small complaints. This is by far the most supportive of my underwire-free nursing bras, very much a plus since I don't like wearing underwire bras every day. It is a pretty bra with the lace on the top that works great as a faux-cami under low-cut shirts (I bought a black one). It is very easy to use for nursing and is a well-made, soft and comfortable bra. The things I don't like about it--it gives a shape that is similar to what some sports bras will do, at least for my breasts. It is also a fairly thin material so nipple coverage is an issue without a pad, and along the same lines the material isn't cotton so it doesn't breathe that well. All in all it is a very nice bra and definitely a good one to have, I would buy it again. Sommer from California

Good support for a larger size who wants a wirefree nursing bra. I like the 6 rows of hooks to adjust as size changes. The clasp is easy to hook with one hand. I am nursing twins and give a nursing bra double the normal use. Two thumbs up. Kristin from Shallowater, TX, USA

By far the most comfortable nursing bra I've tried. I used this bra constantly with my first child and purchased additional ones to wear while nursing my 2nd child. Not only is it supportive and pretty during the day, but it is very comfortable for sleeping in at night (as needed during the first few months!) Misty from Rancho Cucamonga/Ca/USA

I have a small frame and large breasts. I wore a 30F before pregnancy and went up to a 34 DDD +++ during pregnancy. After I got thru the initial engorgement period, my breasts began to gradually decrease in size, however remained quite large (32DDD) by most peoples standards. One of the issues I have is that my large breasts are not full so I need a bra that I can pour them into and still get a nice shape. I have also found that alot of larger cup sized bras are harder to re attach the clasp after nursing as the other half of the clasp has disappeared over my shoulder ( so much for a one handed clasp). This bra solves ALL those problems and is soft and comfy too! I get great shape, great support and easy to re clasp while holding a squirming 2 month old and still have a shot at getting my nursing pads correctly placed over my nipples. I have found that the nude colored ones tend to run a bit bigger than the black. Also, if you feel that the bra is a smidge small, try gently stretching out the cups and wearing it a few times before giving up- I found this helped and the bra still retained it's support longterm. Best bra ever!!! Sarah from New Hampshire

Overall a good bra - I just wish it were more absorbent. I am on my feet a lot and have trouble with excess moisture and heat under my breasts. I wanted a bra that would lift me up and get more air in there. This bra lifts tolerably well but it seems that it doesn't breath enough for me. I will keep the bra but am still looking for my dream bra. A few more are yet to come in the mail - hoping hoping!! Jen from Virginia , USA

Cup size seems bigger than stated. Significant nipple show through is a problem with this bra for me. Very adjustable band is great. carmen from az

very pretty nursing bra. it comes up a bit high in front so it shows under many shirts but the lace detail makes it look like a tank tap so I don't mind. I wish it was a bit more supportive but it is very comfortable. The extra hooks in the back are excellent and I will buy another bra in this style just because of the extra hooks since my bra size (width, not cups) keeps changing post-pregnancy. I wish I'd had this bra during pregnancy precisely for this reason sarah from tucson/az/usa

I LOVE this bra. It is so comfortable and it has great adjustments around the back. I only wish I would have started with this, instead of wasting money on other cheaper bras. I will be buying more of this bra. J. from GA

Great bra! The band has lots of rows of hooks so it fits now that I am huge and pregnant, but it will also fit when my milk comes in and then after I loose weight. It is also very comfortable. TexasCat from Gainesville, FL USA

I have tried all the nursing bras that come in my size and this is by far my favorite. Good support, pretty, and most importantly very comfortable. I wouldn't change anything about it. All of the others I was compromising in some way. Rebecca from Salem, Oregon USA

Love it, love it, love it!!! I have tried a few other maternity bras and none of them sufficed, but this one is perfect. It is very pretty, but above all it is very supportive and provides really nice shape. It is also is very flexible for a changing body. I would recommend this nursing bra for anyone who needs a comfortable, supportive, flexible, shapely, and pretty nursing bra. Mona from NJ

This bra is great. I've tried tons of maternity bras and this one is the first one that is both comfortable and has a good supportive fit. I'm overall relatively petite and even before being pregnant I had trouble finding bras in my size (32DD - 32F). So now that I'm nursing this has become an even greater challenge. I ordered this bra in a 34E and am really happy with it. The truth is that after a month my breasts are even a bit larger than they were two weeks ago, so I'm wishing that the bra came in an even larger cup size! But, for now this is the best maternity bra I've found. Completely worth the price. I wear one every day. First time nurser from San Francisco

This bra is comfy and supportive. I've tried a variety from cheap, to mid range, to this one that I consider expensive and it is so worth it. I find this one to be much more supportive than the other Elle nursing bra. Although, I love the look of the other one. Can't say enough good things about this nursing bra. If I had more money I would have one for everyday of the week, instead I'm about to buy my third. :) Liz from Portland, OR, USA

I ordered two of these, one a 34D the other a 32DD because I wasn't sure which I needed. Generally, a 34 is too big for me. The 32DD I ended up sending back because the back had a stiff material (I guess to give shape to the extra row of hooks) that really irritated my skin. The 34D has enough hooks that the larger band size hasn't been a problem. It gives pretty good support for a non-underwire but my favorite bra is the Anita 5041. I'm not due for another couple of months, so I can't review the nursing aspects of the bra- but so far it is a really nice bra, but not my favorite ever. owranch from Arkansas

This is the best nursing bra I've tried! It's so beautiful, and it has lots of extra hooks in the back so I can get it nice and snug, the way I like it! It uplifts nicely and the lilac doesn't show through most clothes. I like the fact that the back hooks are uncoated metal - the coating on the metal is usually the first part of a bra that starts to look worn out - so I think omitting that entirely will help the bra age well. The cup hook is easy to fasten and unfasten with one hand. Definitely my favorite! Stephanie from California

LOVE this bra. I bought this new one when baby was 7 months old after I lost 40 lbs. Like other people have said, the 6 back adjustments are wonderful. My first one of these bras was a 36 band, and I lost 30 lbs before I needed a 34 band in this. With other bras a 10-15 lb weight loss made the bra band too big...so this was the one I wore the most and got more use out of. It has held up very well to machine washing and the occasional inadvertent trip into the dryer too. Good support, lace is a little itchy at first but softens after a few washings. Dal

Given that I am a "hard to fit" size, I have had a difficult time finding a nursing bra that is comfortable and supportive. This bra is wonderful! It doesn't give me the "uni-boob" look at all, and really supports my breasts well. It is very comfortable and the styling is very pretty. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in a natural colored fabric. While the petal pink works well under most shirts, it often shows through my white t-shirts. Overall, though, it is a great bra!

I have never had a bra more supportive then this. I first got 32E but the cups were too small. But I liked the bra so much that I decided to try 34E (you know, the bigger band size, the bigger cups). The 3 row, 6 column hooks worked perfectly. the cups in 34E were still a little bit small but I decided to keep it, And I did not regret. I would definitely recommend this bra.

The fit of this bra is perfect. The 3 row, 6 column hooks provide a lot of play area when you're pregnant and need the extra rib room. Then when your band size drops back to normal, it still fits. It does look a bit like a sports bra, but it is comfortable and that's what matters most to me. It comes up higher on the chest on me than the picture shows, so it doesn't work under lower necklines. All in all, I would definitely recommend this bra. Cassie from Baxter/MN

I love this bra! It is very supportive for a soft cup, as well as comfortable, which in larger cup sizes is rare. I bought this to wear around the house. (I typically wear the Anita 5035 and wanted a soft cup.) My only complaint is that instead of being continuous, the back straps hook through a metal fastener which sits just below the back of the shoulder (see back view on website.) At the end of the day, I have grooves in my skin from the ring. I am hoping it's something I'll get used to because I love the bra. On another note - I have ordered many bras over the internet for years and Her Room is the best! They give great descriptions, show whether items are in stock before you purchase, and the order always arrives much quicker than from other sites. Returns/exchanges are always easy as well....and No, they didn't pay me to write that. Erin from Winter Garden, FL

This is a very nice everyday bra. It's moderately supportive and comfortable. The lilac color is nice in the summer under tanks and casual tops. I haven't nursed in it yet but the clips seem nice as well. Leslie from Unionville, PA

I like that the band has so many hooks. I am actually a 32, but the 34 worked well as my ribs had expanded during pregnancy and have now gone back to normal. Alison from Turlock, Ca, USA
