This is a very nice bra, especially for a nursing bra. It fits well and gave me some shape which I have been desperately missing since I've been nursing for 7 months. That being said, the clips are a little difficult to use. They are not the standard clips I'm used to on most nursing tanks and bras so it made it a little difficult to unclip, especially while holding a squirmy baby. Sarah from Elgin, IL

Unfortunately, I'm a size larger than the bra I tried on, so I don't have the best impression for a review. That being said, this bra has a very strange construction (at least to me) in that the inside of the cup is made of something like a breast milk pad. That's the only way I can describe it, but what happened for me was that the interior padded portion wrinkled along the edge underneath the outside/drop-able portion of the cup. So when I was wearing the bra, there were bizarre wrinkles running diagonally across the front of the cup. Sarah from Charlotte, NC, USA

I really wanted to like this bra. It looks so good in the pictures. When I tried it on, though, it had lumps in it. The inside layer of the bra was kind of puckered and just showed under everything. I'm not even talking about the seams, which do show just a little. I think the cups fit OK, too, so it's not that it was too loose...just...the inside fabric kind of puckered when I put it on.

I was hoping for a nursing bra that offered more support than the ones I've found in stores. This one isn't any better. Yes, it has an underwire, but the cups are just fabric that don't hold you in at all. I don't know anyone nursing or not with size E breasts that can wear this flimsy of a bra out of the house! I hate that I have to spend my own money on shipping just to return it. Amanda from Pikeville, TN

This bra is very pretty and relatively comfortable. It's not the bra that I wear every day because it has underwires, but it fits well and has a nice shape under clothes. M from Brooklyn

While this bra is well made, it is not the best bra for larger busted women in my opinion. I've been wearing it for a month and the straps don't offer much support, the cups don't lift much at all, making me feel un-supported and heavy. The cotton cups are much to stretchy and cause you to "fall" in them. You'd think since they make this bra in larger cup sizes, it would support better, but it just doesn't. I wish I could return it, but can't since I've worn it already :( It's hard to tell if a bra is going to fit well with just trying it on, it needs to be worn and moved around in a bit to me to feel if it's going to be the right bra.

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you are not pleased with your Florence nursing bra. Part of the allure of this bra is the soft, stretchy cup which is extremely supportive for full busted women as well. However, keep in mind that when purchasing a nursing bra, you should still keep all of the normal bra fitting rules in play: nice firm band for most of the support and a strap that doesn't need to be pulled too tight because you are anchored and secured at the band. Also, as with any bra, it is extremely important to give it a chance to rest. Even if not washing after every wear, you must give the bra a day or two between each wear so that the elastic fibers have a chance to rest and recover. And of course, no dryer ever.

Perhaps you would find our Sexy Mama 163 nursing bra will make you feel more secure. It has a contoured cup with a nice, wide band for superior lift. The lace lays flat giving a smooth look even under thin knits. We do hope that you will give us another try. Lindsey from Alabama

It was too small and the straps are not as supportive as i thought....too stretchy which causes them to bounce more than I like them to. Breiann from Wayland,NY

Strange clasps for a nursing bra and don't really need the padding at this size.

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you found our Florence Nursing Bra did not work for you. The clasp is designed with convenience in mind and in addition, the thick cotton cup provides irritation free comfort and modesty for the nursing mother. Perhaps you would consider giving our Sexy Mama nursing bra a try. It has a lightweight memory foam cup that will mold to your body which aids in the comfort and coverage without adding additional bulk. We do hope that you will give this style a try.

I love love LOVE this bra. I finally found a nursing bra with excellent support and lift. The only reason it didn't merit five stars was because part of the bra that supports the underside of the breast gets in the way while nursing. It can be pushed aside, but it's a little thick. Bra is comfortable and the nude color is great. There is a visible seam across the breast that shows through knit shirts, but with limited underwire nursing bra options, I'm not as picky about that as I used to be. Mel from South Florida

This bra is not very comfortable. Cup lining stops short of nipple, so there is no coverage and cup itself is too low. I would have thought Le Mystere would have a better quality nursing bra. Additionally, despite having 6 rows of hooks, the second time I wore it I was already on the smallest adjustment...I wear a 32. I only wear this bra when I am at the end of my wash cycle and need to get, by until all my other bras are

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that our Florence nursing bra did not suit your needs. Perhaps you would find our 263 Sexy Mama nursing bra a bit more practical and comfortable. Sexy Mama comes in both wire and non-wire versions with a fully lined cup, so you won't have to worry about a loss of coverage. Also, this bra is very pretty with lace that lays completely flat and is virtually invisible under clothing. Kate from Gilford/nh

This is a great bra! I had ordered the off-white and then ordered the black one, too. The clasps are a little unusual, but they do work well and are easy to get used to. Lee Ann from Weatherford, TX, USA

I found this bra a lot more comfortable than I expected. It takes a few days to break in, but then it is awesome. The lift is unbeatable. I'm so glad Le Mystere made a cotton nursing bra! Their designs are fabulous. Would definitely recommend. Rachel from USA

I was very impressed with this bra. It fits well and supports good. The clasps were a little different than I was used to, but it doesn't take long to get used to them. I even ordered this in black. A GREAT bra!! Lee Ann from Weatherford, TX, USA

I usually buy Le Mystere because of the brand's superior support. I had anticipated something even better given that this was a nursing bra. Unfortunately, the cups cut too low to make me feel kept in place. I also didn't like that the interior lining was somewhat padded so that with nursing pads in place I was really bulked up. Finally, I just didn't care for the cotton fabric. Brand new it seemed too stiff and I would anticipate that upon washing it would be too loose.

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that our Florence nursing bra did not give you what you were looking for. We understand that this bra may not have given you as much coverage as you may have liked, however, it was designed as such. Florence was designed to give nursing and pregnant moms functional support, without having to be completely covered. That being said, instead of just containing the breast tissue, this bra does accentuate the beautiful bust line of mothers. When worn with a thin nursing pad, the lined cup also serves as additional leakage protection. Washing would also soften the fabrication slightly for comfort without making it too loose. We do hope that you will give Florence another try. Perhaps if you find that it isn't enough coverage for day to day, you might consider utilizing it when out on the town and you won't have to compromise functionality. Good luck!

It's so nice to have a cotton bra with underwire. With all the other discomforts during pregnancy & nursing, I like that this bra doesn't irritate my sensitive nipples, which most of my synthetic bras do. Plus I'm finding it very supportive & has a great shape for me. Pregnant from Southern New York

Great bra and great support. It looks nice too. The cup is much smaller than other bras. I had to get 2 cup-sizes larger compared to other bras. Rula from NJ

This is a really nice bra. I've had such good luck with Le Mystere in the past that I *almost* feel I can buy without worrying it won't work (there have been a few missteps in the past, but thank goodness for this site and the reviews here!). So when it came time to get a bra for nursing our first child, I knew to look here first! This bra is pretty, first of all. It's mainly cotton and lace so it's not shiny or meant to be super sexy but it's pretty enough that it is pretty sexy. I like the round shape it gives, and I like how it looks. The way it hooks is a bit counter-intuitive to me, but I am hoping that with time I will be able to do and undo this extremely easily. I don't forsee this being a problem. Because of the reviews here, I purchased a cup size smaller than what I would have otherwise purchased, and I think the fit is perfect. Overall very pleased with the look over and under clothes and the wear-ability of this. Recommend. kristen from San Angelo, TX

When I first received this bra I was very excited that this bra had feminine details with the lace and didn't come up to my neck like many bras in this size. The clips are very easy to use and can definitely be used with one hand. The material is soft and comfortable in the cups and the additional fabric inside the cup provides great support and hides nursing pads well. However, after wearing the bra for two days I found that the narrow material in the back doesn't provide as much support for my bust as I would like. Kristen from Woodbridge, VA USA

I really like this bra. I can use cotton nursing pads with it and they don't show through. Its fairly supportive and has a few feminine details that make it pretty. The clasp is not the regular clasp, and so far I still need both hands and eyes to close it after nursing. Some reviewers commented on the little piece of fabric you have to fold down to nurse - it's really not a big deal and I feel like that piece of fabric helps with support. B from NC

This is a nice bra and very attractive the only thing I would suggest is that you buy it a cup size smaller. I have been a 34/36 F thru my pregnancy and nursing and this was the only bra I have bought and wished I had gone smaller. Sandy F. from Hermiston, OR USA

This is an excellent nursing bra, very supportive, with wide underwires that don't (if fit properly) press on milk ducts. It's VERY supportive, in fact the most supportive nursing bra I've found for larger cup sizes, and the straps are wide apart with a low front, so it fits under some tops that are more low cut or with a different neckline, like square. I was put off at first by the double-layer design. There's a very soft cup that folds down when you undo the clasp, and then beneath that is a supportive molded demi-cup that has to be folded out of the way also. I thought it would be unwieldy but it's actually very easy to use. The cup does have a strong diagonal seam that shows through very thin tops, but I've found it diminishes as it's washed, and I love the bra so much that I don't care. The only complaint I have is that the clasp is very difficult to fasten (but super easy to un-fasten, which is sometimes much more important!). I can occasionally manage it one-handed, but usually it takes two, which is fine because my baby is older, but I can imagine that this bra might be daunting with a newborn. Jen from Virginia

This is a very pretty nursing bra - FINALLY, I feel like a real woman again! I like the color and the shape of the bra and the lace is very feminine and flattering to my shape. The clasp is very easy to use (I can easily manage it one handed). The cotton is comfortable as well. The only things I don't love about it are that the seam on the cup is visible under clothing (polo shirt) and the lining under the cup gets stretched out when you pull it down a bit, so there is some puckering when you put it back in place. It doesn't seem visible, though, once you pull the top layer back up. Courtney from Milwaukee, WI, USA

I really liked this bra. My only complaints are about sizing. Honestly I think the sizing of this bra is more true-to-size than most nursing bras, but I'm so used to the nursing bra bands being larger than with non-nursing bras. With this bra, if you're normally a 34 band in Bravado or Anita, I'd order a 36 in this one. Also, the cup size seemed to run a little large, but again that's based on the sizing of other popular brands. I think that if you take accurate measurements of yourself and order based on those measurements, you'll probably get a great fit. I didn't have any issue with too much breast tissue sticking out of the top of this bra like some reviewers. Maybe they got a cup size too small. The bra looks very nice and is soft and comfortable.

fits nice, but you need both hands available to reattach bra front after nursing, major inconvenience. don't think designers of this bra tested the product or are people who have nursed an infant.

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are happy that our Florence nursing bra fits well and are sorry that you are having difficulties with quick re-attachment after feeding baby. Part of the reason for the design of the snap was to make it as inconspicuous as we could – allowing it to resemble a “normal” bra as much as possible. I am sure that this will be taken into consideration when designing into this genre of bra in the future and we hope this does not hinder you from continuing to wear this bra! svetlana from browns mills, nj usa

This bra is amazing! I have really been struggling to find a bra that I still feel sexy in at this size. It is not your grandma's bra!! It's great because even though it is a nursing bra it doesn't have to be...it's a great bra period. I love that it's cut low enough that I can wear v-neck shirts and yet still really supportive and fits well with nothing bulging out! I would recommend this bra to anyone and everyone!
