Health Happy Round-Up: Part II

health happy round-up

Welcome to Health Happy Round-Up.  This week, we’re discussing the benefits of breast feeding for baby, mom, the entire family, and the planet.

When nursing a newborn, it’s wonderful to have a comfortable and great-fitting nursing bra.  I’ve loved the quality of construction, durability, and aesthetics of Medela’s line of intimate apparel since my early nursing days.

medela_logo_300I  enjoyed using Medela’s sleep bra and bamboo nursing camisole.  Now, I’m pleased to review samples of the microfiber wire-free seamless nursing bra that offers optimal everyday support and the jacquard wire-free seamless nursing bra.

Medela thought of everything when they designed these new bras, including a sliding breastfeeding reminder to help you remember which side you last used.

When I wear the jacquard seamless, I feel completely comfortable, supported, and it’s smooth fitting under clothing.  Perfect.  Where was this bra when I first started breastfeeding?microuwmocha-02-002

Medela sent me a mocha microfiber wire-free seamless nursing bra for review.  Super soft interior and beautiful lace detailing on the band is luxuriously feminine without skimping on support.  The microfiber is perfect for a new mom whose milk supply might tend to leak–while keeping outer garments dry.  The fabric is also breathable and agreeable against the skin.

One fabulous feature in these new Medela seamless nursing bras is the tapered straps.  They prevent straps from falling off the shoulders–a nuisance that I cannot stand.  Medela engineered a lovely solution.

The size D cup offers a hidden sling for support and side shaping.

Medela Intimates also offers a bra fitting video to help you select the perfect one for you.  Both retail for $39.99, and they’re available in cup sizes A-DD.  The seamless microfiber is also available in cup sizes F, G, and H for $44.99.  You can purchase Medela products online or through a local Medela retailer.

Also, you can enter to win a Freestyle Hands-Free Pump in Medela’s Mom of the Month Program.
