Mamaway Antibacterial Crossover Sleeping Nursing Bra – Nude – XL

Offered by Mamaway Maternity

I ordered this bra for a different reason than being a nursing mother. I have some very debilitating health issues and have to spend most of my time in bed. I have been looking for something that is comfortable to wear but still gives me some support and coverage under my pajamas. If you don’t wear any bra at all, gravity will soon take its toll. I also have the occasional visitor and still have a young son who lives at home. You can definitely tell the difference when someone as large as I am (40DD) is not wearing any bra at all. I ordered a size XL.

nursing braPROS:
* Comfortable enough to wear all the time
* Anit-bacterial and anti-odor
* Can slip it over your head or use the two-tooth catch at the back that has three different clasps about an inch apart
* The material is whisper soft
* Wide straps and a deep back help it stay put where it belongs, comfortably
* Wide elastic band at the bottom that stays put! I can’t stand a bra that rolls

* Sewn in place flexible support bars on the sides deep the bra from digging into my sides
* Has held up well in the washer
* The material is lightweight and breathable, it is nice not to have a bra that makes me feel hotter

sleep braI know nursing mothers will also appreciate how the material is very stretchy to support your growing figure. It also goes back into place after washing so as you go back to your normal size, the bra can still be worn for sleeping if you want. The cups also have a double layer of material with a slit at the top so that you can slip in nursing pads. And of course, you can see by the pictures in the listing and the ones I am including that it gives your child easy access without you having to do anything but pull the cup over.

What caught my attention the most about this sleeping bra is that it actually has silver microparticles in it that I know can keep you healthier since bacteria can not grow in silver. I am not sure what Meryl skinlife fibre is, I will just take their word on that. Since it is so painful, difficult, and exhausting to even shower on a daily basis, it is important to me to keep as clean as I can by other means. Not showering every day can also cause you to not smell as well as you would like if you aren’t judicious with disposable cleaning cloths. Having a bra that is antibacterial, anti-odor, and comfortable to me is something I couldn’t pass up. These are far better than a normal bra and even much better than a sports bra to sleep in.

The bra fit true to size, I just checked my measurements against the chart they provided with their pictures in the listing. I am always a little uneasy about ordering clothes made in Asia because they can be hit or miss when it comes to size. This fits perfect, though. It doesn’t offer all of the support a normal bra does and doesn’t make my bust look as attractive as a wired push-up bra, but I didn’t expect it to. That is not what it is made for or claims to be. It gives me enough support to be comfortable, keeps gravity at bay, and to be modest.

This is a perfect option for pregnant women who have a bust line that is improving quickly, nursing mothers, anyone who wants a comfortable sleeping bra, and especially for women who need something comfortable if they have to stay laying down all of the time.

Now I know some of you are still reading this to see if I will tell you what a Spoonie is! A Spoonie is a person who lives with chronic illness and has difficulty with common day to day tasks and often has to spend most of their time in bed. There is a very good article on where that term originated, just google ‘what is a spoonie.
