I’ve been living out of the same nursing bras for what seems like years (my fave are from Bravado which I bought at NDG café/shop/everything nursing related Melons et Clementines). They ARE comfy but I’m ready to move on in due course (even though I know I’ll probably cry the last time I nurse the little peanut).
My whole bra situation is pretty dire and now that I’m done with the inflate/deflate cycle I think that it’s time to invest in some new underwear. I’ve been noticing a lot of bralettes around (did these even exist a few years ago?) that are just gorgeous. I know that, ahem, I won’t need too much support in the future and I love the fact that there are so many locally designed and sewn options that are also affordable because MAN can bras be expensive.
Here are some of my faves!
I pretty much love ALL the bralettes from Vancouver designer Alesia Akehurst but I’m particularly smitten with the white floral and lilac. They are also made right in Vancouver.
This is one of the few padded bralettes that I found which, let’s face it, might be nice once in a while. I love the dark purple and beautiful lace.
These super soft bamboo jersey bralettes which are designed and made in Montreal are the perfect choice for an everyday option.
Montreal-based lingerie company Sokoloff has some gorgeous pieces but I especially love their lacy numbers and this bralette is perhaps my fave. All their lingerie is 100% made in Quebec.
