Are you looking for a nursing bra with a high cotton content? This Anita 5051 is made from 90% cotton and 10% Nylon, so not only is it soft, it's breathable too. It has no underwire but is still designed to be supportive, even for mothers with a larger bust.

Brief Overview

- Wirefree
- Not padded
- Sotly padded straps
- 32-48 D-I Cups
- 90% Cotton 10% Nylon


How supportive is this bra? It has a bottom support sling design, combined with laminated cotton piqué, and will provide a brilliant fit up to an I cup.

This bra is built for comfort, with wide, softly padded straps and a leotard back design to relieve pressure on your back. However, it is also practical; the back faster has two or three rows and columns depending on the size, with the larger sizes offering more flexibility, and the straps are adjustable.

****Please see the "FITTERS COMMENTS" tab for this bra****

The band under the bust is stretch microfibre, wide to support you, but also comfortable and breathable. The sides have zig-zag quilting and cool feel cotton mesh, which extends around the back of the bra. This bra can be washed on a cool wash, but cannot be tumble dried, ironed or dry cleaned.

How about the cups? The cups of this bra are made in three sections to shape your breast, with seamless sides for a smooth look under clothes. They are moulded, but free of wires, padding and lining. Experts believe that wearing a nursing bra with wires can lead to the development of mastitis. Nursing pads hardly show through the fabric. The cups can be released with Anita's Kwik Klip system, so you can hold your baby with one hand and open the cup with the other.

So why would we recommend this Anita 5051nursing bra? Well, it's made from 90% natural cotton, and it provides brilliant support without underwires. We think that it's even soft enough to wear at night!

Anita sizes work a little differently to UK sizes ...especially after D cup...here are how they match up:

B cup in Anita is B Cup in UK size
C cup in Anita is C Cup in UK size
D cup in Anita is D Cup in UK size
E cup in Anita is DD Cup in UK size
F cup in Anita is E Cup in UK size
G cup in Anita is F Cup in UK size
H cup in Anita is FF Cup in UK size
I cup in Anita is G Cup in UK size
J cup in Anita is GG Cup in UK size

So, for example, if you would normally wear a 34GG bra in other manufacturers, we suggest you pick and Anita size 34J

MATERIAL THICKNESS OF CUPS:
We try to rate how thick the cups are of each bra, so you are not surprised by this when the bra turns up! We rate this out of 5, so 1/5 is thin cups, 5 out of 5 is thick. We would rate the thickness of the cups of the cups of this bra as 3 out of 5. So medium thickness.

WIDTH OF BRA STRAPS
How wide are the straps of this nursing bra? We measured a D cup bra and it came out as 17mm (compare this to one of your own bras to see how wide this feels). The straps then rise to a width of 19mm once you get to an G cup and above. Then from I-J cups it goes to 21mm.

What if you are still not confident about your size?

Not confident that you know your size? Can we offer some advice that many women, searching for a comfortable nursing bra have found to be “game changing”…it should take around 60 seconds, but could make it much easier to be confident about sizing. Anyway, here is our advice!

70% of our customers pick a “flexible sized” nursing bra. If you are not confident about your size, we highly recommend them too. You should find a “flexibly sized” nursing bra easy to fit and we have them if you are from 30” to 46”, A-JJ cups. Most our customers get at least one. Here are two scenarios where they help:

A) You might think you are a 34E, but are not certain So how do you get a well-fitting, comfortable nursing bra?. We suggest you might, for example, pick a “Flexible sized” nursing bra in a “Medium”. This bra may cover sizes 32DD,32E, 32F,32FF,34DD,34E,34F,34FF,36DD,36E,36F and 36FF. This makes it much easier to get a comfortable nursing bra, when you are not certain of your size.

B) You may wonder how your body may change as your milk comes in and out. Or you may want a bra that you have from pregnancy right through your breastfeeding journey. You may feel more confident picking a “Flexible-Sized” nursing bra that will still fit as your body changes size. So, if you are not confident picking a 38G, you may pick, as an example, an Extra-Large. As an example, this bra may still fit you if you are any of the following sizes:,36FF,36G,36GG,38FF,38G,38GG,40FF,40G or 40GG. So as your size changes, they bra still fits and is very comfortable.
