Thank you for your feedback.
I am due in 4 weeks and this bra fit as expected.
This bra fits me perfectly, is super comfy, well-made, and gives great support.
I originally bought 2 of these from my hospital's maternity gift shop the day after my son was born.

    I was surprised to see the other reviews for this bra are so negative. No, it's not perfect. You get the sports bra-style uni-boob effect. And, yes, it can stretch out some since it's made of such stretchy material. It's definitely not as good at shaping and supporting as some bras. Also, I'd like a greater degree of adjustability in the straps. Nevertheless, I have loved wearing this bra since I became a mom six months ago. It has served me faithfully and I'm so glad I found out about it. Here are some reasons to ignore its shortcomings and try it out anyway if you are a size DD or above: 1. High cut - prevents unattractive bulging over the top of the cups. 2. Sturdy straps do the job for those of us who need extra support. 3. TWO big snaps on each side make me feel secure - and they're really durable. 4. The stretchy material does wonders at stretching to fit as your body changes. 5. Durable - mine have been through the wash a zillion times and don't require the kid glove treatment that some bras do. 6. Because it's so stretchy and has a pull-on sports bra style, it's extremely comfortable - no wires or lacey bits or back clasps poking into you. All in all, it's an economical and super-comfortable choice. Yes, it can lose it's shape after a hard day's work, but I find a good wash and machine dry shrinks it back to the correct size. Handy tip 1: If your Bravado! is too tight after machine washing and drying, you may have bought a size too small to begin with. Handy tip 2: If you feel it's not supportive enough, maybe it was too big to begin with. I would love it if this bra was a tad better at shaping and supporting, but until then this is my top choice, hands down!

    I have not had a day in 7 years that I haven't been pregnant, nursing or both. All my kids are 6,4,3 and 1.....at one point (for about 3 months) I had 4 kids under the age of 5.....I have completely breastfed them all - through pregnancy, surgery, hemorrhage and hysterectomy.....and I have not been without this bra yet.....day or night. One comment says the snaps aren't great - it's got to be user error.....I nurse in the night with no lights - resnap with one hand and am a L++ right now (have been XL++ during early months of nursing)....point is - very heavy breasts and not exactly perky after years of nonstop nursing. I couldn't live without these bras....so comfortable - super breathable - great if you've become somewhat lopsided from a baby that prefers a certain side.....no gaps or binding on either side!! I'll actually regret giving these bras up in another several months. Just ordered my last two to carry me though the last few months of feeding and then weaning of number 4. Try them - you won't be sorry.

    Size: Medium Double PlusColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I wear a 36 H now that I am nursing, and the medium ++ fits perfect. This is by far my most comfortable nursing bra. I wear it around the house, while sleeping, running errands, and even playing racquetball. The fit is like a sports bra (it does create a "uniboob" look) but it has great support. If you are looking for a nursing bra for busty women with better shaping for going to work or dressing-up, I recommend the Bravado Bliss Nursing Bra, but definitely buy a Double Plus (or a few) for your days off.

    Size: X-Large Double PlusColor: White Verified Purchase
    I am starting the ninth month of my pregnancy with our first child. I was large busted prior to getting pregnant and it's been a trial to find a maternity bra or nursing bra that's actually comfortable, but this is it! I would recommend it to any woman, large or small busted.

    Size: X-Large Double PlusColor: Leopard Verified Purchase
    I was having trouble finding a nursing bra that was supportive and comfortable. After searching around online for a while, I decided to order one of these bras. I love it! I ended up buying 2 more. It is supportive and comfortable. Even though it is a sports bra style, it doesn't squeeze my breasts together. I use it for sleeping in and during the day. I would even suggest it for larger breasted women who aren't breastfeeding.

    Size: Small Double PlusColor: Blush Verified Purchase
    I wanted so much to like this and make it work. However, when it says a small fits band sizes 32-36 you have to wonder... I'm normally a 32 band, 34 during late pregnancy. When I tried this on the band was HUGE. It wasn't tight at all and had a lot of additional stretch. A proper fit to a good bra means that most of the weight is carried across the band, there is no way this bra can do that if you are smaller than a 36 band size. Zero support to be had here; the band was already riding up my back (classic sign of an ill-fitting bra).
    The material is comfortable! I loved the overall design as well. The cup size was very roomy with additional stretch. But because the band is too loose with no way to adjust it at all I would not recommend this to anyone under a 36 despite your cup size. Bras don't shrink, they only continue to stretch out. Unfortunately all of Bravado's Original Nursing bras (they have 3 types depending on cup size) have the same band sizing and no way to adjust it in any way.

    Size: Medium Double PlusColor: Black Verified Purchase
    M++ doesn't have much more cup volume than S++, but L++ is far too big in the band size for a 30G/H. M++ is a bit loose in the band for anything less than 34, but is ok the first day of wear, or for sleep. Beware of not much support underneath--that folding and compression can cause mastitis just like a too-tight bra can. Fabric in front folds down completely for full access. The sides of this bra are the least likely to cause mastitis--one of the best designs out there for health reasons. Bravado has the best clips for one-handed, reliable, easy removal and replacement. The elastic is just the right length to keep the clips in the right location for reattachment. Cheap enough to buy plenty so that they can be washed cold and hung to dry--most people find they want to wash more frequently for nursing bras. Thin due to the nice cotton fabric, but lansinoh pads disguise just fine. Much better design for larger sizes than the cross-front of the smaller bravado original bra style.I wear them 24/7, they're definitely comfy enough for sleep but provide more support than the stretchy cross-front sleep bras for smaller sizes, and have a small sling at the place where a gore would be on a normal bra, so that when sidelying nursing at night or while recovering, the top breast doesn't fall out the middle and leak all over the baby's face and your bedding. These aren't perfect, but all nursing bra features come with a compromise, and these are the best out there, especially for the early days when dramatic size changes throughout the day are the norm, comfort is the absolute priority, mastitis is likely, and most people need something day and night to hold pads in place.
