Le Mystère 'Sexy Mama - 163' Underwire Nursing Bra
A pretty nursing bra?!
It's surprisingly difficult to find a nursing bra that fits a small band size and larger cup size, not to mention one that is comfortable and attractive. The "Sexy Mama" manages to fulfill all three criteria reasonably well. It offers plenty of support while still being comfortable. The clips are easy to undo and redo with one hand, and the cups fold down easily. The lace is smooth enough that it doesn't show through most t-shirts. The strap placement is unfortunately slightly too far out on my shoulders, but I have this issue with most bras. Overall it's a solid purchase for a nursing mother who needs a wider size range than most retailers offer.

I love the fact that there's a little padding so it still gives you a true sexy feeling even though it's a nursing bra. It's a beautiful bra!
so pretty in the store
I wanted to like this bra. It was going to be a replacement for my now too big original nursing bras. And I also wanted something pretty and feminine. I tried it on in the store after being fitted but they did not have it in stock in my size/color. So Nordstrom's shipped it to me at no cost (love this). But as soon as I got home and read the reviews I instantly regretted my purchase. I had been in a hurry in the store so that's what happens I guess. I also saw that this same bra is half the price online at another retailer. So when the bra came I immediately tried it on to see if my fears were true. And almost instantly began to feel the itch of the lace. I tried my shirt on over it to see how it looked and noticed the less than attractive lines down my chest. I think the final straw for this bra was how it pulls down to nurse. It would be okay in my situation as I only nurse a few times a day, but for a new mom/less experienced nurser who is having to pull it down frequently I can see the flaws. It was back to square one for me and I settled on a tried and true Anita (boring yes, but functional for now!). One day I will get to enjoy pretty bras again, when functionality and comfort don't reign supreme. I will say the return process is always easy and hassle free.
Ideal Nursing Bra
I debated for months about ordering this bra. I just wasn't sure how long I'd be breastfeeding and really didn't want to spend this much on a nursing bra, but after five months of nursing, I bit the bullet and so glad I did. I was having the hardest time finding a nursing bra that did the job of a bra! This one holds and lifts in just the right places. Many of the other nursing bras I've purchased for half the price just do half the job. They are comfy and easy for nursing, but not shapely and not appropriate for work. Not this bra! It is beautiful, sexy, comfortable, and practical.
I will say though, if you are looking for a "sports bra" type nursing bra, this isn't it. This is more of a dressier bra. One you'd want to wear when you need some shape. The padding is nice. Helps with leaks, without out being too cushiony. My only regret is that I didn't purchase this bra months ago!!!
