Storq Nursing Bra

Posted on by

Nursing bras are notorious for being ugly things a breast feeding mother has to wear, day in day out.  Horrible design, clips, unattractive, chunky and old fashioned on the whole.  Admittedly ladies need that extra support when full of milk, and big boobed mama’s more so, but there should be more on offer that doesn’t cost a fortune.  It is true that it makes you feel more confident, comfortable and happy if you are wearing nice underwear.

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-20-03-29This Storq nursing bra is very simple, no fuss, even fairly boring but it isn’t chunky and unattractive.  It doesn’t have clips, just pull to the side access, made in super soft fabric and extra flexible when your cup size changes or boobs are super full.


Maybe not ideal for those that need extra support for the bigger chest, but if you don’t we highly recommend these.

Nearly A Year

The 3rd bean is nearing a year old, so I’m going to quit my breast feeding stint.  Bitter sweet, but I’m looking forward to a treat of a new bra or two.  Which of course means I have to do some online shop browsing and bookmarking, perfect in time for Xmas.

Love this Polish brand no sweet.  The fabrics are 100% organic cotton, cut comfy and wearable and the prints and colour palette completely unisex.  Our favourite is the cloud print, and the bug range is very cool.  I love they have  basic, simple underwear in all the prints too, a gap in the market is finally being catered for well.
