There was so much that I didn't like about this bra. The main thing was the amount of support that it provided. Don't assume that you're going to look anything like the model in the picture. There's no real support from the soft cups of this bra--it's just two thin pieces of a knit-like fabric. Since I purchased it to be a sleep bra, I figured I'd check out other features rather than just returning it immediately for the lack of support. The clasps are eye and hook like you would find on the back of your bras to close the band. This is not a very convenient type of clasp for nighttime nursing. Although, it is nice that there are three different sets of clasps to adjust the cup size as your size fluctuates. The straps are comfortable enough, but they are hideously large. Honestly, I'm not sure that there's a good time to wear this bra. I like plenty of support even in the early weeks of nursing because my breasts are so heavy, so I don't think I would ever wear this bra.
Fancee Free Response:This particular style continues to be one of Fancee Free's bestselling nursing bras. As I am sure you are aware various fabric and design factors contribute to the support of a bra, perhaps keeping in mind some of the following technical attributes may help:
-Synthetic fabrics like polyester have very little stretch compared to natural fibers like cotton (think of your favorite pair of jeans). However natural fabrics have more breathability, softer against the skin, durable, advocated by nursing professionals and not to mention good for the environment.
-Bra cups with seams offer more support than a molded seamless cup.
