Nursing Bra Express: Le Leche League Wrap N Snap Nursing Bra

I was thrilled when Dara contacted me regarding another review of one of the nursing bras she sells at Nursing Bra Express, as she was fantastic to work with the first time. This time she was interested in having the LLLI Wrap N Snap Nursing Bra featured. Let me start by saying this nursing bra is nothing short of awesome.

For starters, I love the most obvious feature - the fact that it is fully adjustable.As you can see, you wrap the bra around and snap at the bottom, allowing the bra to grow with you. When I received the bra, I was battling a mild case of mastitis and didn't want anything touching me, however, that Monday I had to take my guy to preschool and needed to wear something while out in public. My nursing tanks were all to constricting and hurt so much, but this was perfect, I could wrap it loosely, allowing comfortable support.

I would think this bra would be perfect transitioning from pregnancy to having a newborn - knowing how my own ribs expand while pregnant (and how hard it is to get that perfect fit!) and allowing for much adjustment during the time when your milk is coming in and regulates.

I thought that the outer 'wrap' would bug me where it ends:but I don't even notice it (see how it just...ends?) I thought it would be totally noticeable under clothing - it's not!

It hooks just like a traditional nursing bra:and is very easy to do one handed (very important with a squirmy baby!) Also, the cups easily stay out of the way while nursing.

The back is 'solid' (in that it is very similar to a sports bra back). There are no hooks or anything, allowing bra to be very comfortable, even while sleeping. It is very smooth under clothing and incredibly comfortable to wear!

And the colors are fantastic (who doesn't love a bit of color to spruce things up?!) The Wrap N Snap comes in Black Jacquard, Chocolate, White and a fun Print.

My only complaint was that all of my cloth nursing pads would slip around inside the cup and fall out! (and as you can see - the cups are not padded and very thin! Great for breathability, but, I personally need more 'coverage' than this bra offers alone!)I spoke with Dara to see if this slippage was a common problem and she said that she had not encountered this before. She suggested finding disposable nursing pads that have a sticky back to them, such as the Lansinoh Disposable Pads, and see if the problem remained. I tried a different brand of disposable pads and this did resolve the problem. If I'm home, I just use my usual cloth and adjust as needed and save the disposables for outings.

If you're looking for a great transition bra, you should definitely consider the Le Leche League Wrap N Snap. It retails for $22 and comes in two sizes: S/M (which fits 32-34-36 A-B) and L/XL (which fits 36-38-40 C-D). If you have any questions regarding which size you should purchase (or anything else!), contact Dara and she'll help you out!

You can find Nursing Bra Express on Facebook and Twitter.

This does look like a great bra for pregnancy due to the adjustability. However, I'd like to see more innovations in the nursing and maternity bra market for those with larger breasts. Finding a supportive, comfortable and functional nursing bra past a DD cup is VERY difficult.

I agree with Christine! The adjustability feature looks great, but I don't understand why SO MANY nursing bras come in sm, med, lg, and xlg. sizes. The sizing on this bra will prevent me from ever trying it. As a 32F/G during pregnancy, I don't fall into any of the size categories. It makes bra shopping extremely difficult.

I am a DD as well and I found the best nursing bra's for me were found at Motherhood Maternity. I prefer under wire and they had that feature as well. http://www.motherhood.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=919100382&MasterCategory_Id=MC30

I think the bra looks fantastic!

Charlotte said...

I agree with what some of the other ladies have said. It looks great... but I'm a DD pre-pregnancy! I doubt a size "C/D" is going to fit me.

Hey Mamas! I am writing to you on behalf of Nursing Bra Express, unfortunately the Wrap N Snap does only come up to a size L/XL. We sell many bras (even up to an M cup!). If one should win this Wrap N Snap and your breasts won't fit, I will send you another nursing bra that goes up to a DDD cup. It is the molded cotton nursing bra http://www.nursingbraexpress.com/nursing-bras/molded-cotton-nursing-bra .

So comfortable, full of support, breathable, I just love Playtex bra. I wish I could have 20 more of them but sadly can't afford that many! lol
They are truly great, especially as a Mother of an 8 month old.
