I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own. The one thing I cannot stand is hair in my face. I don’t wear my hair down very often for this reason. And on days when I do wear my hair down, it’s only for about half of the day because I can’t take… Read more »

Having an ill-fitting bra can be a nightmare! But how does a new mom know what size nursing bra to buy (especially when her breasts change size almost hourly!)? I’m currently on my 3rd size of nursing bra, now at almost 20 months postpartum, and I’m still not back to my pre-pregnancy bra size.
