Just Say No To Beige Nursing Bras

We are all about comfort and function when it comes to nursing bras, but sometimes a lady likes to feel fancy. Here are a few pretty nursing bras in colors beyond black and white.

Basically no article of clothing ranks function over fashion like nursing bras. Of course comfort and access to the milk trumps all in those early months, but after a while those dingy undergarments can leave you feeling like you'll never be your old self again. For those times when you need to feel pretty and put together, ditch the beige and try out something with a little more sparkle.

Velvet Delight Plunge Maternity Underwire Nursing Bra

A huge kudos to Cake Lingerie for being the only website I could find featuring images of just the bras. Everywhere else only showed them on taut models who look far more perfect than I felt postpartum. I love this simple, lacy number in a gorgeous cobalt tone. Available in sizes 32B-32D. (Cake Lingerie, $60)

Sophie Wireless Nursing Bra

Anita Anthracite Nursing Bra
