Pre-babies, I was a lingerie snob. I got my first bra from a well-known lingerie store, and just never went anywhere else. The styles were great, the fit was good. I didn’t have any reason to look somewhere else.
But when I got finally got pregnant, I was at a loss. I assumed that it would be easy to find a nursing bra that was both stylish and functional. Boy was I wrong. I was sadly disappointed when I was pregnant with my first child to find that stylish nursing bras were hard to come by. I bought a couple from the Lactation Consultant, and added nursing tanks into the rotation.
Nursing tanks became my norm. For four years now I’ve basically worn nursing tanks everyday. While they are comfortable, there is no support. It was time to look for new nursing bras. But where?
I was excited when I learned about hotmilk lingerie. But could nursing bras actually be stylish and functional? Honestly, I was doubtful, but hoping they would prove me wrong.
I was impressed by the website. They really are beautiful, and dare I say it? Sexy.
Just because you are hugely pregnant or in the no-sleep phase of life with a newborn, doesn’t mean you can’t wear sexy lingerie under your comfy clothes. You can even get underwear to match!
The quality is great. And they are oh so comfy, which is super important whether you are pregnant or nursing.

- Feminine detailing of satin bows and diamantes
- Wider bra straps on the larger cup sizes
- 6 rows of hooks on the back adjuster to allow the bra to grow with you
I love that these don’t have underwires. I’ve never been able to find an underwire nursing bra that is comfortable for me. But I’ll also admit that my nursing chest is not small. The six rows of hooks are great because it can grow with you. You can wear the bras while your pregnant and continue to wear it while you lose the baby weight.
It’s been great wearing bras that actually fit me again. The bonus is that they don’t look like plain and frumpy nursing. They are stylish and sexy.
Not sure about buying bras online? I completely understand! I’m definitely someone who likes to try things on before I buy. That’s why I love the Your Fitting Room tab. The FAQ page was excellent for answering the questions I had. Especially the “when should I buy a nursing bra?” question. Hotmilk has a generous 30 day return policy. Just make sure you don’t remove the tags.
If you’re in the market for nursing bras that you can wear while you’re pregnant and then while you nurse, I highly recommend Hotmilk Lingerie. You can check out their website for yourself: hotmilklingerie.com
