rocky road romance {Cake Lingerie Nursing Bra}

Cake Lingerie is the creator of the very best maternity and nursing bras.  I will believe this 100% until someone can prove to me otherwise.  Until then, I have to share with you what’s new at the boutique, and what I was sent to review.

cake lingerie rocky road review

The Rocky Road Maternity and Nursing Bra and briefs are the most gorgeous pieces to hit the collection.  Featuring candy pink details on a sophisticated charcoal grey, this is one stunning lingerie set.  Lovely lace, feminine ribbon ribs and bows, you will feel all that is woman inside the Rocky Road.  Upon opening for nursing, there is a cheery polka dot sling that is pretty, stretchy and soft.

For me, support was always, and still is, more important than anything.  A pretty bra will bring me in, but support will get me to stay.  With flexible underwire, you have all the support you need for the growing girls, but no harsh, uncomfortable wire issues.  The wider straps are satiny smooth and offer further support that will not cut into the skin.

80% of the support comes from the back band, so measure wisely!  Back when, I could never find a 32 band with the cup size I required, so I always settled for 34.  Just so wrong!  Years of wearing a bra without the adequate support… Cake Lingerie offers a really great range of sizes, especially for the larger than life breasts that come with pregnancy.

Sizing is just so key, isn’t it?  If I had a penny for every high end (read: expensive) bra I bought that wasn’t the right size… I’d have like 11 cents.  Cake Lingerie makes it easy for you to buy the correct bra size, as you know during pregnancy it changes quite a bit.  The interactive fitting guide will hold your hand through the process as you measure and plan for months to come.  The customer service as Cake Lingerie is also quite amazing and can answer any questions you may have here.

tips for a perfect bra fit

Your breasts are changing and with that comes your size and support needs.  What to keep in mind when shopping for a bra?

  • If you are bulging over the top or out the sides, go up a cup.
  • If back fat appears, go down a band size.  Your bra is too big!
  • When pregnant, start out and end with wire-free bras, a nice flexible wire from month 3-9 for support.
  • If your straps are falling down, go down a band size.
  • Bras lose tightness over time, make sure it fits on the loosest hook day one.
  • Never wear the same bra two days in a row.  They need a rest!

So ditch the boring bras we’re all told to wear during these times of pregnancy and nursing.  While you’re feeling like a cow (during both events) treat yourself to an everyday indulgence — a fabulously feminine lingerie collection, all of which you can find at Cake Lingerie.

    I’ve bought a ton of bras the wrong size, too.

    Ugh, I hated my nursing bras. To jump from my Fredericks and VS bras to granny nursing ones made me feel less feminine than ever before. These look so cute…and would definitely make a new mama feel sexy again.
