Breastfeeding may be the most natural thing in the world, but it doesn’t always come easily. Anything that helps you through those difficult early weeks is a good thing, and the Glamourmom Mbody Starter Nursing Bra definitely falls into that category.

The only bra designed specifically for the initial stages of breastfeeding, the Glamourmom Mbody Starter Nursing Bra offers bags of support for post-pregnancy boobs, with a high-cut shape and a built-in inner sling to cradle your breast when you drop the cup to feed your baby. The cups unclip easily with one hand to expose your full breast, giving your baby plenty of room to manoeuvre – and lots of skin-to-skin contact.

The Glamourmom Mbody Starter Nursing Bra comes in sizes from 34/36 B/C to 38/40 F/G, with the under-bust band adjusting over two sizes for comfort during the engorgement stage when your milk comes in.

The cotton/elastane blend is breathable and absorbent, making it ideal for night-time. It’s machine washable, too – a must during the leaky early days of breastfeeding.

What we love

Four days after giving birth to Katie, I breathed a sigh of relief when I put the Glamourmom Mbody Starter Nursing Bra on for the first time. The wide straps, stretchy fabric and supportive under-bust band took the weight of my rock-solid breasts, while the soft, seam-free, heat-moulded cups were gentle on my sensitive nipples.

Katie fed well when I was wearing it, thanks to the generous amount of breast exposed by dropping the cup.

My breasts had been feeling particularly tender overnight, but the bra was comfy to sleep in, and the large cups held my breast pads securely in place.

I also appreciated being able to sling the bra into the washing machine in the morning – after all, who has time to handwash their undies with a brand new baby to look after?

What to watch out for

The large cups of this bra are great for access, but on the down side, it means there’s a lot of fabric to get in the way. I had to scrunch the dropped cup up and tuck it under my breast so Katie didn’t get a mouthful.

The bra is definitely functional rather than sexy, with its wide straps and high-cut shape, not one to wear under a vest top, for instance.

Who is the Glamourmom Mbody Starter Nursing Bra best for?
