Would you like a bra from a tried and trusted brand? Freya is a brand that caters to women with bigger busts – this white Rose Nursing bra is available in sizes up to 40G! This beautiful Rosie Nursing bra is a practical white colour, allowing you to wear it under a wide range of clothes.
So how supportive is it? Well, it has an internal A-frame in each cup, which is designed to support you even when the cups are down. The straps are wider than usual, offering you extra support and reducing the strain on your shoulders. Freya is a brand with experience of providing bras for women with larger busts, and despite the fact that this bra has no underwires, it should still be supportive enough even in the bigger sizes! Experts believe that wearing a bra without underwires whilst feeding can help to prevent the development of mastitis, and we think that this Rosie Nursing Bra from Freya is well worth considering!
How practical is it? This Rosie Nursing bra has full cups which drop away to allow you access to the breast. The nursing clips are specially developed to make this easy, a definite advantage with a hungry baby! The cups themselves are soft, and lined with ultra soft fabric treated with Ferran Ice application. To help keep you as comfortable as possible, this finish is designed to draw moisture away from your body. With cup sizes D and E, this bra has two hook and eye fastenings, and three in the larger sizes of F-HH.
So we know that this bra is a practical nursing bra, but we also think that the design is very feminine and sophisticated. The cups have a subtle lace overlay and a spotty navy blue and white bow between the cups. There are also cute ribbon bows on the straps just above the nursing clips, and a lacy edging around the top of the cups and bottom of the chest band. To keep it in the best condition, we would recommend hand washing this Freya Rosie Nursing bra.
So why do we like Freya's White Rosie nursing bra? The lace detailing on this bra is subtle, but we think that it still gives it a luxurious, feminine feel. And as it's from Freya, who make bras specifically for bigger women, we believe that it will provide all the support you need as well as the practical features you want in a nursing bra.
We want to make sure you know exactly what the bra is like so you are not surprised when it arrives, so here are some quick questions and answers from us studying the bra, out of the packet, in depth.
Is this bra underwired? No
Does this bra have a “modesty panel” that covers the top of your breasts (i.e when the cups are open does it have material to help make it more discreet behind the cups? This is also called an “A-Frame nursing bra”. Yes!
What is the “Modesty Panel” like? It is white, and the top bit is lacy and goes over the top of your breast when you are breastfeeding
Is this bra padded? No
Does it have a pre-formed or molded cups? No
How smooth is the material on the OUTSIDE of the bra? Not very, it is quite “textured”, and then at the top of the cups there is an area that is lacy
How stretchy is the fabric on the cups? Not very
Does the bra have removable foam inserts in the cups? No
Would it be suitable as a T-shirt nursing bra? No because some of the material is lacy and textured
Would it be suitable as a Sleep nursing bra? Not really
Does this bra have an option to buy matching briefs? Yes see the panel below called “Other Customers Liked”
As a generalisation, we think this bra is a similar size and fit to a Panache bra and also a similar fit and size to Triumph bras.
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. 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 18mm (compare this to one of your own bras to see how wide this feels). The straps then rise to a width of 24mm once you get to an F cup and above. So from D-E, it is 18mm, then from F and above it is 24mm.
