A great quality nursing bra with very useful additional features, with the added benefit of looking good too, however I think that the cup size adjusters looked quite bulky. I loved the look of the bra – the attention to detail was superb. It was not just a practical bra; it was designed to look good too. It was very comfortable to wear as the material is lovely and soft. The only negative is that the clips that open and adjust the bra on the front are quite bulky and if they are in the wrong place then they do dig-in slightly. The instructions on how to fit the bra were on the Lorna Drew website, you did need to watch the online video as it was not clear from the packaging how to adjust and fit the bra correctly. The online video was very easy to access and understand. I would have liked some instructions on the packaging too in case you don’t have access to the internet. Once fitted it is very supportive and it is great that you can adjust the cup size easily as my breast size changes throughout the day. The bra does not look like a nursing bra. Most nursing bras are purely practical but the Lorna Drew bra has made an effort to be pretty as well as practical. I found that it takes two hands to open and close the cups when feeding. If I try to open or close the cups with one hand I find I open the clip that adjusts the cup size which is very annoying as then it needs readjusting. The breast pads were very easy to fit into the bra and were very comfortable when inserted, however I did find that they moved when the cup was opened and close so needed readjusting after each feeding. As the breast pads were white and the bra was black it was obvious if they were not inserted correctly as they tended to poke out. They were very absorbent. I had complete confidence that they would keep be dry throughout the day with no embarrassing leaks. The breast pad were very easy to clean – I just washed in with my normal laundry and come out clean and ready to use again. I will definitely continue to use my Lorna Drew bra. I would recommend this to friends, especially those who are concerned about changing breast size. By getting this bra you don’t have to have a drawer full of different sized nursing bras. Elegant nursing bra that allows me to adjust the cup size easily. Helen Marchant-Hawes – Jake & Heather 2 Years & 4 Weeks

I was very impressed with the overall appearance of the product and was extra pleased to receive the matching knickers which I wasn’t expecting! This is a very attractive bra, made well and of good quality materials. This is by far the most comfortable nursing bra I own. I’m not particularly large breasted but I found the bra very supportive. Some nursing bras sag underneath the boobs but this one did not. Apart from the obvious clips, there is nothing about this bra that screams ‘nursing bra’. Rather than being plain and boring it has a nice patterned section. It was fairly easy to drop the cup to feed. However as I am used to using disposable breast pads, which I just whip out, I found getting the cup folded down a little harder with the breast pads in the ‘pocket’. The breast pads fitted perfectly and were very comfortable to wear. The breast pads were very absorbent. The breast pads are very easy to wash. I simply washed them in with my other whites and left them to dry on the radiator. I will continue to use this bra and have already recommended. I was pleasantly surprised with the look and quality of this very comfortable nursing bra. Tracey Ham – Darcy 7.5 Months

Really love the idea of having a bra with built in, washable breast pads rather than having to use disposable ones that aren’t as soft and don’t stay in place, Great idea and looks more stylish than a lot of nursing bras. Also liked the idea of adjusting the cups. Looks stylish and attractive compared to most nursing bras, would prefer not to have the gold bits on fastenings. Didn’t feel that the cups held me in place very well although the breast pads were soft and comfortable. The adjustable cups I didn’t find that effective, when I adjusted the cup it then altered the strap length so I ended up feeling like the straps were too tight on my shoulders. No worse than other nursing bras but with a large chest I don’t find any nursing bras supportive enough as they lack underwire. Doesn’t look too obviously like a nursing bra an attractive style. When feeding my baby I found the Catch was a little bit tight to undo but not a real issue. The breast pads little bit fiddly to fit them into the cup but fitted fine. The breast pads were absorbent and Fine for my purposes but not sure what they’d be like when in the earlier days of feeding when supply isn’t as well regulated. The breast pads were very easy to launder. I really wanted to love this, the concept is brilliant and I was very excited about it but in practice it just didn’t work for me, it may just be the combination of the style of the bra with my shape, I know with normal bras some styles of bras are great and others aren’t right at all on me. It just didn’t hold me in place well enough to be comfortable. I love the concept of it and I would encourage others breastfeeding to try it and see if it worked better on them than it did on me. Disappointing, the idea is great and I’d really like to be able to write a more positive review for it but not right for me. Emma Payne – Sebastian 9 Months
