Often we think of nursing bras as being uncomfortable, frumpy or both. I am thankful that even in my last eight years of nursing, the trend has moved towards better looking and more functional nursing wear. The Cotton Candy Sleep and Yoga Nursing Bra by Cake Lingerie is a fun and flirty nursing bra. It is extremely practical and can take you from maternity through nursing your baby.

I love the aqua color of the bra, which is a fun secret to have under your workout clothes or something pretty to offset the color of spit up on the rest of you.

There is that little secret that you have that only you know about. The Cotton Candy Sleep and Yoga Nursing Bra is also available in white, black, nude and steel gray. The bra goes on my going over your head but also has a hook and eye closure in the back. This makes for a nice fit. The straps come in closer towards the neck and the straps did frequently show under my t-shirts. This may or may not bother you, as that is a personal preference and depends on the size of the neck opening in your shirts too. I found that the sizes are generous, so if you are unsure of your size, err on the side of sizing down. With sizing being small, medium, large and extra large some of the guesswork is taken out for you.

In terms of support, I consider this a light support to medium support bra. I don't think it would do very well in a real workout, but it's fine for everyday milling about the house, errands, and the like.

This would also make a very comfortable sleep bra. The stretch around the ribcage gives you room to grow or shrink through pregnancy and postpartum. The cups are unlined – nursing pads are likely to show if you are wearing a tighter top. This is a great bra for light workouts (hence the name yoga bra.) The low, t-cross back helps give support.

It is a very comfortable sports bra.

One of my favorite aspects of this bra is the side sling that helps provide support to your breast even while the flap is down. It is a pet peeve of mine when nursing bras only provide support if they are latched. This can also help with modesty while you are nursing in public.  Side panel support ribbing gives support while still maintaining comfort. The materials are 90% polyester and 10% Elastane. I found that the material does show milk spots but they come out easily in the wash. In an effort to simulate real life, I washed and dried the bra multiple times in the washer and dryer. The bra held up very well through multiple washings and did not pill at all. The color of the fabric remained vibrant which is not often found in bra materials. The recommended care is cool machine wash and hanging to dry.

The price on the Cake Lingerie website is $53 which is in line with high-end lingerie and a bit less at Amazon and other retailers. This is a bit more than most sleep or yoga bras but the quality is better than other bras on the market. I feel like you will get your money’s worth over time.
