Best Sleep Bra for Nursing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lamaze Cotton Spandex Sleep Bra for Nursing and Maternity (Apparel)
I was looking for a cotton sleep bra for nursing. After reading many of the negative reviews, I was hesitant to buy this bra but decided I would go ahead and try it anyway. I am so glad I did!
I am a size 38D and have not experienced any problems with being a larger size. I use the nursing pads with a sticky back which probably helps them stay in place. I can lay on my sides and the bra supports them well. The fabric is definitely of higher quality than other sleep bras.
I've worn the Medela and the Fancee Free sleep bras for nursing and this Lamaze is by far the best. The Medela fabric was too thin and had scratchy lace on the sides and the Fancee Free (similar in design to the Medela but again, better fabric) runs large in sizing.
I'm guessing this bra doesn't work with the shells (which I too use in the first few weeks of nursing) because it's not made to be used with them. I wear a more supportive bra at night until my milk levels off and there is no more need for the shells (usually about the third or fourth week).
I haven't washed it yet but another reviewer says it shrinks so I will probably just let it hang dry. Over all this is an extremely comfortable bra which makes it very easy to nurse in at night.

I would also like to know what size you ordered. I'm bigger than a 38D and I am wondering what size would be best if at all for me.

Sorry my response took so long but I've had another baby since I wrote this review and I'm still wearing this sleep bra. All my others either have holes in them or have stretched out, so the Lamaze is really durable too.
The size wore away but I'm pretty sure it was a large. And the black does run a little smaller probably because of the dye but I didn't mind since it seemed to fit even better. I also ended up throwing it in the dryer and it still fit well. Hope that helps!
