Tested by mum Jane Hobday for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This bra is absolutely beautiful! I spent all of my pregnancy wearing unattractive but comfortable bras - finally I have a nice pretty bra which feels nice, is comfortable and also very practical with nursing straps. The quality of this bra is fantastic and it had co-ordinating briefs. I felt this bra fitted really well and it had a nice shape when worn under a T-shirt. I think this bra is well worth the money.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This bra felt nice and looked nice, whilst serving a thoroughly practical purpose for feeding. I think this deserves an award because I really struggled to find a nice nursing bra but I finally found this and I'm very happy.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I'm not sure there's anything I would change with this product – it’s pretty much perfect. It isn't the cheapest nursing bra out there but I do think it is well worth the money.

Tested by mum Candice Sharp for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would definitely recommend this bra to a fellow Mum because not only is it beautiful, it is very comfortable.  It made me feel sexy something which doesn't happen often while breastfeeding or after having a baby.  The design is gorgeous and I loved that it came as a set with matching underwear.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It was comfortable and easy to use.  It also looked good and made me feel good on the outside.  I can see myself wearing this bra even after I have finished breastfeeding.  I think the cost is really reasonable for a good quality bra and even more so if I keep wearing it in the future.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change a thing.  I think it was designed perfectly and ticks all of the boxes. The price is reasonable, the design is beautiful and the quality of the materials used is excellent.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love that this bra looks like a gorgeous piece of lingerie not just a boring old nursing bra! Soft cups against the skin and a lovely lace design outside. Very comfortable and practical and I would wear this if I wasn't breastfeeding too!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Easy to breastfeed on the go whilst wearing a supportive bra. Unclips and clips back up easily.

Tested by mum Amy Hasler for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I loved the look of this bra, it's very pretty with the lace over the nude colour which makes you feel good at a time when it's tough and you might not be feeling your best - even if you're in leggings and an old shirt this bra is a lovely thing to have underneath! And the feel of it is comfortable, it doesn't scratch or pinch anywhere which is important.  I did not think the size I chose would be that well-fitting without trying it, but it was fine. It came wrapped in a lovely package and was a fantastic 'present' to open so it would lift your spirits a bit to receive this in the post.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This bra set does look really lovely, so it makes you feel like you are wearing something pretty rather than just a nursing bra. With a new baby, I am usually wearing loose, not particularly fabulous clothes that are functional, rather than looking good, so this makes you feel good in that sense!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The main thing that it lost a couple of marks for in my opinion is the cups being quite thick which makes it a little bit harder to push them out of the way and keep them out of the way when feeding out and about. At home it's easy to undo all your clothes and fold them down, but in comparison to other bras which are not as thick, this was the main issue I had, so perhaps they could be softer/more easily squashed down.

Tested by mum Laura Roberts for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love this bra I like that I have an underwire again that is comfortable, gives me the support and shape that I long need after years of feeding. There are two colour choices both in a beautiful lace with a silky bow there is also a choice of matching knickers. I found this bra easy to open and close one handed during feeding, and it has a good number of back fasteners for keeping up with the weight and body shape change after having a baby. The cups are lightly padded which is a must for me. This bra is slightly more expensive than other feeding bras but I feel it is very good quality and should wear well.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I find feeding very easy in this bra, it's quick to open and close. It makes me feel good and I know I'm getting the lift and support that I need.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would like to see this bra available in a 30.

Tested by mum Faye Jones for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This product is gorgeous, it isn’t your normal frumpy maternity wear, it gives support, is easy to unclip and clip back up for feeding and is really pretty, the matching underwear are also functional but not ugly looking and are also very comfortable.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This product has made my life easier as the clips of the bra are really easy to unclip one handed and there is still support when the product is unhooked unlike the flimsy versions of nursing bras on the market. The Bra is well made and really pretty so you don’t feel unsexy whilst wearing. It also washes well, which is important for milk leaks.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There isn’t anything I would change about this product, I really liked the material, the detail and the comfort that the product supplied and it passed all expectations that I had of any nursing bra, and it is worth the price although this is more than I would normally spend on underwear.

Tested by mum Naomi White for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This bra is so incredibly pretty which is unusual for nursing mums to find pretty bras.  Unfortunately though the sizing is way out, I requested a 36 D and was informed that a 36 is the largest size on offer at the moment by Lorna.  The cup size is fine but I found the 36 very tight.  Personally I thought 36 was quite a small size to stop at as usually during pregnancy and postpartum everything seems to need to be a little bit bigger until returning back to pre-pregnancy size.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I wouldn't recommend this bra for sizing to a mum but I would recommend it for the design and how beautiful it is.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The sizing needs to go up to a much larger size maybe a 40 and the sizing needs to be increased.  Other than that, a beautiful bra.

Tested by mum Heather Harkness for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I loved this nursing bra. It was both comfortable and stylish, and felt more like a normal bra than for feeding, which gives you the feel good factor! The bra is easy to unclip and perfect for day time feeding, however I wouldn't recommend it overnight due to the style. The fit is also lovely!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It's nice to have a supportive and flattering bra that is practical for feeding, and this bra certainly delivers both.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change anything about this bra.

Tested by mum Elizabeth Emmanuel for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This bra came with lovely knickers as well.  The bra and the knickers are lacy and made a lovely change from the underwear I'd been wearing recently, which had been more functional than feminine!  Trying the set on, I began to remember that I was also a woman and wife and not just a Mum!  Apart from that the set was very comfortable to wear and made me feel good!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Nice to wear something that is more than practical when I'm breastfeeding!

Tested by mum Kelly Dunlop-Chatburn for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would recommend this as it’s the first nursing bra I have encountered which is worthy of the ‘lingerie’ description. The Grace Nursing Bra is really pretty, lacy and underwired with moulded cups. And with a £36 price tag, the price is reasonable as it’s something a bit special.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The bra can also be purchased with matching briefs which just adds to the ‘lingerie’ appeal of this nursing bra. The bra is comfortable, supportive, and easy to use in terms of unclipping the clasps for nursing. 

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

If I could change anything, I would like it to be machine washable, available in more colours and offer more padding. As a nursing bra it is prone to breast milk leakage, so that would improve the appeal and usability of this product greatly.
