If you're looking for something a bit different, we think you'll love the Royce Blossom Nursing bra. It's designed to be as flexible as possible, with an innovative design that even allows you to adjust the neckline!
Is this bra padded?
We all know how important it is to have a bra that fits well and feels comfortable, and flexibility is the key. This Blossom bra is fully adjustable, with four back fastenings and adjustable shoulder straps, so you can alter it to find your best fit. Each size in this bra can accommodate three cup sizes, so the cups can expand and contract to fit you as your body changes, without any padding to restrict you.
The polka dot material of the cups is soft and stretchy, with a seam-free cotton lining to keep you as comfortable as possible. This means that this bra can be worn both during your pregnancy and whilst you are feeding your baby. And with such a soft design, you could even wear it at night! Definitely one for your hospital bag!
So why is this bra so special? Royce have designed it with a soft cord hidden at the centre seam of the front, allowing you to adjust the neckline. With the cord looser, this bra has a straight, crop-top style neckline, great if you want a bit of extra room. However, if you pull the cord tight, it creates a ruched seam and a plunging neckline for lower cut tops. We think this is a brilliant idea, giving you the best of both words!
So how supportive is it? Experts believe that wearing a bra with underwires when you are feeding your baby can increase the chances of developing mastitis. Therefore, this bra does not have underwires, but is designed with a hidden cradle to give you shape and support without constricting you. And to keep you comfortable when you feed, the cups have side slings to support you when the cups are down.
The nursing clips open the drop cups easily with one hand, giving you quick and easy access, and, like all Royce bras, the shoulder straps are designed to stay in place when the cups are down.
Royce have a reputation for creating great wire-free bras, with the cute black and white polka dot pattern as well as the flexible fit, we think that this one will soon become a firm favourite!
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.

No, but it has a thick lining!
