The Anytime Bralet from Bella Materna: Review and Giveaway {Ends 4.24)

*Please note:  I received a complimentary product for review purposes. As always, I will only promote products that I personally use and/or recommend to my readers.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably heard me griping at some point about my inability to find a decent-fitting nursing bra. grumble grumble… 

Some of the problems I’ve encountered during my 3-year quest to find a great bra:

  • Weird shapeless mom boob or uniboob
  • Lack of support.
  • Lack of coverage (the always-embarrassing “headlights” issue)
  • Inability to accommodate the varying sizes from pregnancy to breastfeeding
  • Loss of support as the day goes on. (Great at 8:00am, saggy by lunchtime.)
  • Flimsy straps
  • Itchy fabric
  • …and the list goes on.

The folks at Bella Materna thought that they might have the answer to my issues, so they graciously allowed me to give their Anytime Bralet a shot. 

(And let me tell you, nursing a newborn along with a 3-year-old makes me a pretty good bra tester, because there are all kinds of things going on with “the girls” these days. I probably hit 3 or 4 different sizes throughout the course of a day! And, with all the hooking and unhooking and stretching and pulling cups aside, I really put my bras to work.)

Look out, Mamas! It seems we have a winner!

And it’s even pretty, right? In the photos, the Anytime Bralet from Bella Materna looks a little bit like a sleep bra, but it’s not. It IS comfortable enough to sleep in, but it’s made from a luxurious smooth and silky Oeko-Tex fabric (certified to be toxin free!) 

Available in sizes S through XXL, the fit is flexible enough to take you from pregnancy through your nursing days. Since I originally thought this was similar to a sleep bra, I was excited to discover that it features a back closure with extra hook settings for more adjustability.

Another welcome feature is the removable pad in each cup for smooth shape and lift. I’m not a huge fan of pads because I find they often wrinkle or get scrunched up when you nurse a lot, but they’re a nice option. Especially for coverage. I have mine out for now, but I think I’ll put them back in once we start nursing a little less often.

The last thing I’d like to point out is the pull-aside nursing access. I’ve broken many a clasp trying to get things unhooked for a hungry baby, so this is a nice change. Just pull it aside. It makes nursing in public a lot easier, too, when you don’t have to worry about re-hooking.

Is there anything I didn’t like?

The way this bra is constructed, the support comes from the sturdy band and shoulder straps rather than the cups. I would say it’s built more for comfort than contour, since there is no wire or side support in the cups. Overall, this wasn’t a big problem for me, and since it’s Bella Materna’s #1 selling wirefree bra, I guess it’s not a problem for most!

For a long time, I chose my bra each morning based on which one I disliked the least. Now, thanks to Bella Materna, I have a pretty bra to grab first each day!

Buy it!

  19. Rebecca Villalba says:

    I am also a long-term nursing mom, having nursed my first two for 2 1/2 yrs each and am now nursing my 3 mos old. I too have tried MANY different brands of nursing bras that were uncomfortable and not great quality in general. I can absolutely vouch for the quality and durability of Bella Materna bras. I still have a bra that I bought 6 yrs ago and put in a lot of use that’s in great shape! I have sensitive skin and get itchy very easily, however the fabric is very comfortable. I would definitely continue to use these bras past my nursing days as they are supportive and look great! My cup size has gone up with my 3rd baby and I’d love to have another Bella Materna bra that fits my current size.

  20. Michelle Garcia says:

    I would choose the regular coverage bra. I have yet to find a great nursing bra so would be interested to see if this one is THE one for me as well. I am on my third nursling and have been nursing at least one baby for the past 5 1/2 years now.

  21. I would go for the full cup! I also really like the T-shirt bra full cup. It looks comfy and sexy :)

  22. I would choose the regular in bare!

  23. I would love either of these nursing bras. Nursing in and of itself can sometimes be a daunting task so anything to make it easier would be awesome! Thank you :)
