Nursing Bras for Pumping

Nourish by BeliBea is my favorite nursing pumping bra

Nourish by BeliBea bra while nursingI have been nursing and pumping for 13.5 months so I consider myself an expert in nursing bras and while I’ve tried a variety of them throughout the course of my breastfeeding relationship, the Nourish by BeliBea bra is by far my fave.

After months of nursing and pumping, my once perky, full-of-milk boobs had started to get a little deflated and saggy. Even though I was still nursing I was about to go out to Nordys and throw myself at the mercy of the sales gal there and beg them to help me find something to make the girls look good again.

But then came the Nourish by BeliBea bra. I’d been chatting with the company for a bit so I was well versed on the story behind it: a new mom was unhappy with the available bras out there so she created her own, a bra she could both pump and nurse in. I was a little skeptical at first. I’d tried other pumping/nursing bra combos and the bras never seemed to get tight enough to hold my breast shields in place. I often times pump on the way to work in the morning so I really need a bra that requires so hands or fussing.

Even though my nursing days were winding down I jumped at the opportunity to test it out.

The logistics:

Nourish by BeliBea bra: my boobs look hotThe bra has two layers: the inner layer is super thin and soft with a hole cut in the middle for your breast shield to pop through. This layer hooks on the lower hook of the strap. The second layer is the outer shell of the bra and it hooks on the upper hook. You have to unhook both layers to expose your boob for the baby. I used the bra for pumping or nursing but the other benefit of this bra is that you could hook up one boob to the pump and nurse from the other.

The pros:

  • My boobs look hot. I think it’s because of the light layer of padding. It’s not stuffed in the bra but rather a removable shell. It defines them without giving me a uni-boob. And adds some nice cleavage.
  • Great under t-shirts. I’m a big v-neck tee fan and some of my other bras were too straight across so they poked out of my shirt. This one doesn’t show. Also the light padding means my nipples don’t show so I can wear this even under sheer shirts
  • Super comfortable. The fabric is so soft and everything is flexible but snug. I’ve also been wearing this bra non-stop for almost two months and the straps don’t stretch out like some of my other bras.
  • It works! I was able to wear just this bra all day, switching between pumping and nursing. I was even able to wear this bra while I pumped in the car in the morning. Even though it was super soft it was still tight enough to hold the shields in place.
