In a nutshell

A soft and comfortable bra that will appeal to eco-minded mums, but lacks support for bigger busted women.

Pros: Soft and stretchy fabric, organic cotton, accommodates your changing shape, easy to open and close the cup for feeding
Cons: Not supportive enough for larger busts, thick fabric can get a bit hot and sticky, quite pricey for a basic bra

When you’ve got engorged breasts and sore nipples, comfort is at a premium. With its soft, stretchy fabric, the Carriwell Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra scores highly in the comfort stakes, but wouldn’t win any Oscars for best supporting role.

The Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra is the world’s first 100% organic cotton nursing bra. It’s the latest offering from Carriwell and promises to be gentle to your skin and your baby’s, as well as doing its bit for the environment. The soft, stretchy fabric lifts and controls your bust without underwiring, and there are no irritating seams to aggravate sore nipples. The drop cups open and close with a simple one-handed clasp.

The Carriwell Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra comes in sizes S-XL, equating to an impressive range from 32A to 44DD. The stretch fabric moulds to your shape and allows for growth, and can expand by up to two sizes to accommodate the changes in your breasts. The free hook-and-eye bra extender gives extra room for growth.

What we love

Incredible expanding and shrinking boobs are part and parcel of breastfeeding, and a bra that fits perfectly one day often feels horribly uncomfortable the next. But not this one. The Carriwell Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra is impressively stretchy, and easily accommodates the day-to-day changes in my bust.

The fabric is lovely and soft, and with no seams to rub on my tender nipples, it’s comfy enough to wear overnight.

I like the ruching and subtle lacy edging on this bra, and the seam-free style means I can wear it under tighter tops without unsightly lumps and bumps.

Although I’m no earth mother, I like the idea of an organic cotton bra, if only because it seems softer and gentler on my skin and my baby’s.

What to watch out for

The Carriwell Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra is quite low cut at the front, and I find it doesn’t offer enough support – or coverage – for my oversized breastfeeding boobs. My breast pads seem to work their way free, and when I bend over, my nipples have a tendency to escape, too!

I also find I get quite sweaty, particularly under the bust where the fabric is thickest.

Who is the Carriwell Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra best for?

Smaller busted breastfeeding mums who value a green lifestyle.

MadeForMums verdict

The Carriwell Seamless Organic Cotton Nursing Bra is a comfortable wardrobe basic that accommodates your changing shape and does its bit for the planet. However, well-endowed mums may find it skimps on support.
