5 Nursing Bras That Are Actually Really Sexy


leopard print braIf there was one thing I didn't like about breastfeeding, it had to be those depressing, uitlitarian nursing bras. They reminded me of the brassieres my great-grandmother used to hang out on the clothesline: Boring, full-coverage, sturdy cotton undergarments. Actually, they make me think of the tag line from the Saturday Night Live skit "Mom Jeans": "Because you're not a woman anymore, you're a mom."

Bummer. But no worries -- you breastfeeding moms now have it so much better! You'd never even think this leopard-and-lace number was a nursing bra from the looks of it. But it is, and guess what? There are more after the jump!

licorice braNow this is awesome. I remember not even being able to find a black nursing bra when my kids were babies (and, by the way, this wasn't all that long ago. My kids are 10 and almost 6).

fancy black bra

This one's not only black, it's bedazzled! Perhaps not the most comfortable choice for everyday wear, but so much fun for special occasions.

t-shirt bra


As every lady knows (nursing or not), the value of a good t-shirt bra can not be overstated. The value of a good t-shirt nursing bra? That comes in colors like this? Priceless.

le mystere bra

I have to say, I think this one might be my favorite. I've never seen a nursng bra look so delicate. I would totally pretend I was Salma Hayek if I was wearing it.

if I wear an underwire nursing bra I end up w/ clogged ducts and mastitis.  Underwire isn't recommended in pregnancy either because of it's effects on the milk ducts

I could deal with plain nursing bras. I just wanted a comfortable one. I'm plus-size and OMG finding a quality nursing bra in my size is ridiculously difficult. My normal bra-hunt is hard enough. Lol.

So I dealt with boring white and beige nursing bras that were just not exactly right. Sure I found a few online that were cute, my size, and got good reviews on quality...But those were $90. Like, really? There was NOT that much more material used.

My biggest problem with generic nursing bras is that they give crappy support. Thankfully I only have a few more months (child willing) before I can start wearing pretty and functional bras again.

I have to say, I don't get the sexy bra thing... because, really, you should be the only one seeing it. I mean, you don't go out to a special occasion and hope someone catches a glimpse of the girls, ro you??


Functional- my boobs belong to the baby now anyway

I am tempted by the $30 one.  I might just order it.  I hate order bras online though, I have NEVER found one that fit right, and always had to return them.

I buy the largest size available at Target, for a nursing bra.  It doesn't fit me right, but for less then $20 I can't complain.  I'll make do.  It is annoying trying to find the larger sizes.  Usually you have to order them (and then they don't fit) or they are over $70.  As much as I LOVE a great fitting bra, that is just WAY out of my budget.

And I'm a little tired of the white, beige, and black.  Even if it was just for my husband (which it would be), I would love to get something prettier!  I've been in these nursing bra for over 5 1/2 years now and will be in them a few more.  Baby #5 is coming in January and I am still nursing the toddler.

I wear beige every day so I might think about the tee shirt one but that'd be about it

That stinks!  Shipping is $10!!!!!!!  AND, their site states that if you have a coupon for free shipping and have to return the item, they will deduct what would have been charged for shipping from your account.  :(  That's SO disappointing.  Guess I am not ordering one.  :(  (you lingerie.com)

Sorry honey but I need support and comfort. You want sexy go look at a Victoria's Secret magazine. My boobs are for my baby.

Its nice to have at least 1 sexy nursing bra for nights out.  When you nurse for over a year you get tired of those laleche league bullet proof vests.  Even if you keep your boobs strictly for the baby, its still nice to put them in a little package and keep those girls in place for your husband.
