Breastfeeding my children has been extremely important to me; and even more so this time around with Gemma. I feel she is way more attached and into nursing than my other two were. She rarely takes a bottle, and only had formula a few times while in the hospital. Breastfeeding is like second nature to me now, and in my opinion easier because I would probably forget to bring a bottle with our daily chaos. But unfortunately, breastfeeding this time around has taken a toll on my body. I’ve been experiencing several clogged ducts, which are extremely painful and was just nearly on the verge of having mastitis. Mastitis is an infection cause by bacteria entering the nipple or by clogged ducts. I finally figured out the problem behind all of these issues was not having the correct nursing bra. I have a few nursing bras left over from when I had Siella which weren’t so supportive and then I was wearing my non-nursing bras that have under-wire. While the under-wire was supportive, the wire was actually causing my milk ducts to clog.
Luckily, I was introduced to the new Bravado Essential Embrace bra by the lovelies Julia Beck and Nancy Horn. They insisted I try the new “three years in the making” bra and guaranteed this should help my situation. Already being a fan of Bravado, I lived in their Rebecca Minkoff design tanks all throughout my pregnancy, I gave it a try. I’ve been wearing the Essential Embrace Bra for a few weeks now and I have to say…no more clog ducts!
The Essential Embrace is the first bra to feature Bravado Dynatex fabric, a ground breaking industry innovation providing the expectant and nursing mother with a superior comfort, breathable and lightweight fabric. The bra features a modern, clean design, and exclusive Bravado Designs molding technology that changes shape along with you. Essential Embrace features a deep v-neck and is constructed to give a balanced and flattering shape. The bra cup drops down and away from the body to give baby skin-to-skin contact which is essential for bonding and establishing a breastfeeding rhythm. I cannot say how happy I am with my E.E. Bravado Designs has come to my rescue and made nursing worry-free and enjoyable again. I am excited to test out the rest of the Bravado collection…stay tuned.

I wish that I read this post years ago! I had no idea that a bra could create plugged ducts? I had this problem while nursing both of my kiddos and even had mastitis with my second (it was a nightmare!). Sound like you found a good one :).
I had mastitis and many clogged ducts with my first pregnancy!! Thank you so so much for this article!! Definitely getting one for my second!!
Did you use underwires? Bravado bras are definitely the way to go. They actually have an underwire on their line called the Allure. At first I was hesitant to try but they are the only nursing bra company to make them and the wire doesn’t go all the way around. Loving that one and the embrace! Next week, Ill have the low down on all the bras!!! xoxoxo
