Bravado! Sublime Wire-Free Nursing Bra
My favorite nursing bra for large busts
I have breastfed 5 children over a total of 11 years, and this is hands-down my favorite nursing bra. I like the shape it gives my bust (34/36 I/J) -- not powerful pointy boobs like other high-end nursing bras I own. The support is certainly not going to take me running, but it's enough to play DDR with my kids or chase a toddler. Plus the black cherry is gorgeous as nursing bras go. The cups do run a tad small but they're pretty forgiving.

band size cuts into your rib cage
I bought this bra about 8 months ago. I have tried wearing it again and again since then, but it just hurts. You don't notice it right away but after wearing it for 2 days or so you will feel almost brused by it. I normally wear a size 34DD. But before I bought it I read a review that said to go to the Bravado website and follow the instructions for size there because the bra runs small. so after the instructions I came back to this site and bought a size 34DDD. Like I said, at first it is fine..but later on you will notice it hurting. It may have been ok if I would have bought a 38DDD. But my measurements on the website said 34DDD. so that's what I went with. If you are deciding to get this bra I would definitly buy a bigger cup size then you normally are and even maybe 2 band sizes larger. The band size is very small. Also I don't like how the bra makes me look smaller than inproportion with my body type in my clothes. It's not bad on cup size for me because the weight of my breasts are more towards my armpits. But I would def. not recommend it for you if your breasts are fuller towards the middle of your chest as I think it would cut into your breast and make you look like you have 4 boobs. Also If you get it make sure you wear it for more than 5 days BEFORE you take the tags off!!!So you can return it if you need too! I wish I would have done that!

Only worth sleeping in
Very disappointed because I have always had such great luck with Bravado. Unflattering, no lift, double boob cause the lace cuts into breast.
Looks well constructed yet offers ABSOLUTELY NO STRUCTURE.
Took the take off so I'll be sleeping in it. So disappointed.

This bra basically has triangle cups. And there is a seam right down the nipple line. Most unattractive bra I have ever tried.

Seemed great but didn't fit
I liked this bra upon trying it on, but after moving around for a minute or so, my boobs started poking out the top for a second boob. I might have my cup size wrong, but the bra also seems like it might be better for boobs that aren't super close together - which mine aren't ever since I'm an H cup. I'm going to try the J/K and see if that fits any better, and if it does, I'll amend my review. The bra itself seems really nice, well formed and will probably fit perfectly if I can get the size right. I am really hoping the next one fits, it's too hard to find a good quality bra, especially when your body changes so much for pregnancy and nursing.
