I have been breastfeeding for nearly 5 years straight! I’ve nursed through 3 pregnancies and started with my first son was born. I have tried many nursing bras from different brands. Looking back at my first time breastfeeding; Shopping for bras while 38 weeks pregnant with no idea what to buy, awkwardly trying to hold my newborn to get a good latch and spending weeks wondering if I was doing it right (sometimes I still wonder!)…I know a few things. First, newborns nurse nearly constantly. It’s normal; Cosleeping is a life saver! Second, a good bra is a must-have. The girls are working hard and need comfort, support and the ability to get out and about at a moment’s notice. I am pleased to introduce this Carriwell Gel Wire Nursing Bra and am thrilled to say that it’s the first nursing bra I’ve run into in a long time that I’m completely happy with. Here are some photos of my sample and affiliate links to find this Carriwell Nursing bra online.
This bra marries the best of two worlds. It’s made of lovely stretchy synthetic fabric like many of my other bras…but unlike it’s less supportive competitors, this bra comes with a gel wire. What’s a gel wire? As you can see in the photo below, the ‘wire’ in this bra is made of supportive but squishy gel. It’s very comfortable and extends under my armpit. While many of my wire bras have a ‘U” shape to the wire, this one is more relaxed. I think the bra is expressing it’s understanding for the width of a nursing breast, and extends farther sideways for comfort. I typically wear this bra during the day, however it’s comfortable enough that if I fall asleep I won’t wake up all twisted with a wire jamming me in the ribs…and it’s pretty! It will definitely be in my hospital bag for baby boy 4!
