Each of our bras is unique, and we hope that sharing our team’s insights will help you decide which bra will work best for you.

French Terry Racerback

French Terry Nursing Bra

Bra basics: The French terry fabric is ultra-soft and soothing for sensitive breasts. The racerback style gives it a sporty look and feel with light support.

Who it’s good for: Those who want to wear a bra without feeling like they’re wearing a bra; anyone who likes the idea of a sports bra but doesn’t like being compressed; those looking for something with light support that will keep nursing pads in place 

“I love the French Terry Racerback! I wear it all the time when I want a sporty look under clothes but don’t want to feel compressed all day long. I also wear it anytime I’m traveling and just want to be comfortable.” - Deeanne, Co-Founder

Organic Cotton Bra

Bra basics: The Organic Cotton Bra is a perfect light-support bra, made of stretchy, structured organic cotton with pull-aside nursing access. 

Who it’s good for: Those wanting an eco-friendly bra with light support; anyone who prefers wider straps and full back coverage

“The Organic Cotton Bra is pretty much my daily summer T-shirt bra. I love that it’s more structured than the French Terry, and the scoopback provides more back support for larger cup sizes. It’s extremely breathable for the hot weather. It also allows me to move freely to chase my kids around but keeps breast pads in place to prevent unwanted leaks.” - Shantel, IBCLC, Pinterest Manager

Lace Nursing Bralette

Bra basics: Our newest bra features the same easy, pull-aside nursing access as our French Terry and Organic Cotton Bras. The stretchy, lined lace on this bralette provides light support for those up to a DD/E cup.

Who it’s good for: Those who want to feel cute and stylish while nursing; anyone who loves lace and a bra that goes from day to night 

“I’m a 36B and love this bra! It’s so pretty to wear under shirts and dresses. There’s no gaping, which I often experience with other bras, and it provides the perfect amount of support for me.” - Gabrielle, Doula, Customer Care Representative 

“I have the Large and X-Large and love them both. Sometimes I want to wear tanks or dresses that don't work with the Sublime. With the Lace Bralette, I'm still able to easily nurse, and I get to feel cute.” - Alix, Facebook Manager 

Simply Sublime Bra

Simply Sublime Bra

Bra basics: The Simply Sublime Bra is a classic style with an adjustable hook-and-eye back closure, easy-to-use nursing clips, and removable padding.

Who it’s good for: Anyone who expects their cup size will change (the material stretches to accommodate size fluctuations); those who want moderate coverage and support with a smooth look

“I’m a 36F, and I love the Simply Sublime Bra in Large. The softness of the material and the overall stretch were a true gift to my nipples and breasts, which were sensitive from my baby’s latching difficulties. Then I tried the Large in Busty sizing and fell even more in love! The wider straps and fuller cups gave my milk-heavy breasts a bit of extra lift and support that I didn’t know I was missing. I highly recommend trying the Busty if you’re a DD/E cup or above!” - Hannah, Customer Service Manager

Sublime Full-Coverage Bra

Sublime Full-Coverage Bra

Bra basics: The Sublime Full-Coverage Bra is a fuller-cup version of our Simply Sublime Bra, with a subtle floral jacquard pattern and fixed padding. This bra has a traditional hook-and-eye back closure and fits up to an H cup.

Who it’s good for: Those who love fixed padding and a touch of femininity; especially great for larger cup sizes (D and above)

“I’m a 36C and love the Sublime Full-Coverage Bra because it’s comfortable, and the material feels really durable and high quality. I can wear it all day without feeling any discomfort! I especially appreciate the convenience of the bra's fixed padding. The embossed floral pattern is a pretty bonus!” - Jogi, Customer Care Representative 

Marvella Bra

Marvella Nursing Bra

Bra basics: The Marvella Bra comes in two styles; both styles feature smooth, molded cups and a stretchy chest band. The Classic is a pullover style with adjustable racerback straps; the Luxe has convertible straps (using a simple o-ring) and a hook-and-eye back closure.

Who it’s good for: Those with an established breast size who want thinner straps and a deep V-neck; anyone who loves the smooth look of a T-shirt bra

“The Marvella Classic was the first nursing bra that I actually liked! Upon returning to work from my maternity leave, having the Marvella on made me feel a little more normal. Since I was pumping twice a day and going home at lunch to nurse, I needed to wear a nursing bra every day. I always wore underwire bras prior to having my son, but I love the Marvella so much that I still wear it now almost a year after weaning!” - Stephanie, Marketing Manager
