5 nursing bras for breastfeeding that are pretty and practical

Who says maternity and nursing bras need to be frumpy? These covetable designs suggest otherwise…

Pretty or sexy aren’t typically the first words that spring to mind when you think about nursing underwear. Comfort and practicality tend to be the key factors in selecting nursing bras for breastfeeding, and often the way they look can be a bit frumpy or downright ugly.

But what if we told you that it is possible to find nursing bras that are both pretty and practical? The likes of Ann Summers and Bravissimo have launched underwear that makes it easy for mums to nurse anywhere and any time, all while feeling that bit more like themselves. Here are five top picks…
