Would you prefer a nursing bra with a lacy vintage style? The Sophie nursing bra from Panache is lovely and has a luxurious feel. It is also available in up to a J cup.
So what does it look like? The cups are made of a lovely nude colour lining with a beautiful linen colour lace overlay and a matching nude bow between the cups. The straps are also a linen colour too.
This nursing bra has soft cups, and it has a full-cup design that drops away to allow you access to the breast. They are lined with soft jersey fabric. The bra also has a side sling that will support you when the cups are down. There is no padding, but the cups are made in three parts to support and shape your bust. The material is slightly stretchy. This means that the bra might not be as supportive as you would usually expect from a Panache bra, so please consider this when choosing your nursing bra.
This nursing bra has an elasticated band around the chest. This will support you without underwires. Health care professionals tend to suggest that wearing a bra with underwires whilst feeding may lead to the development of mastitis.
We think this bra is very practical. It has adjustable straps and six hook and eye positions so you can find your perfect fit even as your body changes. In D-G cups, there are two hook fastenings, and in the GG-J cup sizes, there are three. This gives you more support at the back. Also the back is designed to reduce the amount the straps can move, and there are one-handed nursing clips on the straps This allows you to drop the cups quickly and easily whilst holding your baby in the other hand.
To keep your Panache bra in the best condition, we would recommend hand washing it. Would you like it in a different colour? We also have it in a black and nude colour too…please see the Panache brand page on our site for this option. There are also shorts to go with this bra too. Again, see our Panache brand page on this site.
So why do we like this Linen colour Panache Sophie Nursing Bra? We really like the vintage, lacy feel of the design, and knowing that it's from Panache is a real bonus, especially if you have worn their bras before.
