After complaining about my lack of nice maternity underwear in my 24 Weeks: Update from Mom, Kara from ChelseaMamma recommended I check out Hotmilk, a lingerie company specialising in designing maternity and nursing bras that are “empowering, feminine, practical and SEXY!“. Literally the answer to all my prayers! Even better, the very lovely team at Hotmilk heard about my plight, and very generously offered me a maternity/nursing bra to review for the blog. Amazing!

After browsing through the gorgeous selection available, I couldn’t decide whether to opt for a maternity or nursing bra style. Luckily, Hotmilk advised me that their nursing bras are suitable to wear throughout pregnancy too, so it wasn’t a difficult decision for me to choose what I wanted: the Eclipse Nursing Bra in Nude.

I wear a lot of light coloured tops and shirts, so having a nude coloured bra is essential for my day-to-day wardrobe. I particularly liked the lace detail and the subtle sheen to the fabric made this feel like a real luxury item, certainly a step up from the cheap non-wired bras I’d been wearing (no offence, Tesco… your £10 for two non-wired bras have served me well, but they’re just not a patch on Hotmilk’s Eclipse!).

Considering this is a bra without any underwiring, I couldn’t believe how much support it gave. It goes to show how much good design is worth. I finally felt like my boobs had a decent shape back to them! I could really tell the difference when I put my cheaper bras back on. With 6 sets of hooks and eyes on the back strap too, there’s plenty of room in there should my ever-expanding body continue to grow over the next few months and beyond.

The pretty lace detailing is what caught my eye about this design.

I’ve already had some fun playing with the nursing cups that fold down (it’s like an X-rated version of Peek-a-boo!). The clips holding them in place are easy to un-clip and strong enough to not risk any nipple exposing accidents.

My only problem now is that I only have one. I’ll definitely be investing in more of these and already have my eye on the Chic Denim Nursing Bra and the Luminous Nursing Bra. I’ve made some very non-subtle hints to LPD that should he ever want to show me some loving appreciation and fancies buying me a present… he need look no further!

If you’re currently pregnant or nursing, I can’t recommend Hotmilk‘s lingerie enough. They’re definitely worth checking out, and I think they are 100% worth the price. Hotmilk have a really handy sizing guide including detailed instructions on how to measure yourself so you can order online with confidence. Also, grab yourself a cheeky 10% discount on your first order if you sign up to their newsletter. It goes without saying that I’m a complete convert. Thank you, Hotmilk! You’ve made this pregnant lady very happy.
