Melinda G T-Shirt Soft Cup Nursing Bra Review

Disclosure; This is not a sponsored post. I did receive a product sample to facilitate my review however the opinions here are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

     As a breastfeeding Mom, having great and functional nursing bras is very important to me. I’m excited to try this Melinda G T-Shirt Soft Cup Nursing Bra and share my experience with it. Going on nearly 5 years of breastfeeding, I’ve tried my share of nursing bras. I enjoy the ease of nursing, ability to get a boob out in public and am able to feed fast on-the-go when I’m out with my family. Nursing bras are an important part of my wardrobe and I’m thrilled to add this to my bra drawer. Here are some photos and information about this style!


     When I opened this bra and felt the fabric, I was impressed with how soft the entire bra is. It’s wireless, has a nice curve and shape, comes in black/nude, is made from Tactelยฎnylon/Lycraยฎ in Costa Rica of American fabrics. It has easy to operate nursing clips and is soft enough to make a great sleeping bra. The soft synthetic fabric feels silky and is thin. This bra needs nursing pads to keep the girls from high-beaming when under a thin shirt and/or to catch leaks, but is fine under a heavier shirt with my maternity tank during pregnancy.
     While it’s wireless, it is structured and has an inner-layer to provide support. The back hooks have 4 layers of 3 hooks. The strap is nice and wide ensuring a seamless look and a nice fit. The shoulder straps adjust in the back, so you either need good shoulder range of motion or to adjust the straps before putting this bra on to get a good fit. I personally prefer when a bra strap adjusts in the front, so I can adjust fit as my supply goes up and down throughout the day, but this seems to be an uncommon feature in nursing bras. Most of the bras I own adjust in the back.
     I am reviewing the Large (36D-38B-38C) and am swimming a bit in the bra. I would estimate that this bra runs big, and while I’m currently a 36D, I would fit better in a Medium. I anticipate this fitting better after I deliver and my bust size increases when my milk comes in. Previously my size has increased to a 38C until my milk regulates around 6 weeks. However, if you’re between sizes, or near the small end of one size you may have better luck choosing down a size. Because it’s large on me, it doesn’t feel very supportive and I’ll make sure to update you after my son arrives.

      Where do you find Melinda G Nursing Bras? They were recently added to the Nursing Bra Express catalog. The bra is even offered in their Amazon store! Nursing bra express carries the Melinda G T-Shirt Bra seen here, and also the Melinda G Sleep Nursing/Maternity Bra. Free shipping for orders over $35 makes ordering really easy and you can see a big selection and lots of reviews. I’m an Amazon frequent purchaser. I love the returns and get free 2-day shipping with my Prime membership…and I can order a Nursing Bra, finger paints and a spatula all in one order!
     While this bra is silky smooth, it wouldn’t be the first I’d recommend. My wishes for this bra in the future include; Soft cups or liners to hide high-beaming pregnant Mama nipples, shoulder straps that adjust in the front and a tag-less tag. I find this one a bit itchy, but it can easily be removed if needed and I’m sure I’ll cut it out. 

     If you see this bra and LOVE it, or are shopping for different styles, Nursing Bra Express has a huge selection of nursing bras. It’s fast and easy to shop from home. They also offer breastfeeding advice, articles and parenting articles. Make sure to follow them on Facebook for updates and visit their website for the entire selection! In addition to their website, they’re also on Amazon! So if you’re like me, and always in need of odds and ends…you can get your nursing bra along with Christmas shopping if you desire.

    Having the three rows of clips in the back helps me with the digging I sometimes get with just 2 rows of clips… I also like that it is wireless I feed my son mostly at night and it would be helpful. I don't think I have enough bras that fit me right let alone nursing bras… Could definitely use some!!!

    I like that it does not have an underwire. I agree that it is much easier to adjust if the adjuster is up front I like that it looks like the nursing pads have more of a pocket to hold them in. So many bras anymore barely have anything to help hold the pad in place.

    Thank you for the review! I am actually not breastfeeding yet, but cup size has almost double since the beginning of pregnancy. I like the size range and that it is available on Amazon. I am a Prime member too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thank you for this review. After I had my daughter, 3 years ago, I had such trouble finding a nursing bra that was both comfy and still held up the girls. haha I am excited to try this one with our new squish who is due in April!

    I'm going on 3 years of nursing (now on 2nd little one) and, like you, I've tried a variety of nursing bras! lol! I love that this one clips down on either side in the front, which is almost a must. It looks very soft and seems like something that would be great for immediately after baby comes, when the "girls" are more sensitive. I wish it was a bit thicker though, so it could be a full time bra once through the first weeks of life with a new nursing baby.

    Buying nursing bras is something I've put off for fear of spending the money and not having a good experience. Thanks for the honest look at this particular bra, especially the tips about sizing. It will definitely come in handy if I decide to try these out)

    That bra looks so comfy! I like all bras, not just nursing ones, to have nice thick straps like that, they feel like they are actually for support, not just to look cute lol I 100% agree, all nursing bras should be able to adjust in the front!

    I agree on the strap adjustment. I hate having to adjust bras when it's in the back. I feel silly on top of uncomfortable.

    This bra does look super comfy. Maybe it would be best as a sleeping bra, that way you could set the straps where you need them and not have to worry about adjusting them hopefully. The tag would drive me crazy too! I definitely think I'll be doing some Amazon shopping for nursing bras soon.

    I definitely think it looks comfortable – similar to one I have (which came with nursing pads)… but my least favorite thing about that one is that it isn't supportive enough. So I'll be checking back for that update on this one! Thanks

    My biggest question about this bra would be how well does it actually "hold" things up. Being on child #3, my girls definitely need extra support as well as the functionality to have quick and easy access too. It does look like this bra at least has the extra support around the band that many of them don't. I would be curious to try it and see for myself.

    Thank you so much for your review. As I prepare to meet my little one, I've read over and over about how important a good nursing bra is in those first weeks. I was gifted a few and bought some others, but will be flexible as I learn what works for me. Ease, comfort, and beauty are all important to me as I become a mom.

    Thanks for admitting this isn't actually your first pick even though you do like it. I also appreciate the list of things you would change. With the design as it stands, it sounds like a phenomenal bra for around the house in the first few weeks and for sleeping but not for daily wear for women whose nipples like to make an appearance.

    Nursing bras are the bane of my existence. Comfortable ones don't make my boobs look good. Ones that make my boobs look good (or at least not worse) aren't comfortable. This looks like it would only be good for around the house, but still a great option for new moms.

    It's hard enough to find a bra that fits well let alone a nursing bra. I never found any good ones with my first daughter so I ended up converting regular bras. I'm always on the lookout for good nursing bras. These are going on my Amazon prime wish list.
