We love to put new styles to the test by getting honest reviews from our community. And we’ve all been following the heartwarming pregnancy journey of @leonieash on Instagram. So, Leonie was an obvious choice to provide an honest review of the Waffles Nursing Bra by Cake Maternity, a versatile nursing bra designed with a flexible wire and A-frame sling to provide added support and lift.
This is what Leonie had to say.
When did you realise that you needed a good maternity or nursing bra?
I always hoped I’d be able to breastfeed and having comfortable support with easy access was certain to play a huge part in making that a reality.
How did you first hear about TKD Lingerie?
TKD’s reputation as a leader in this market means they were recommended to me by almost everyone I spoke to! Helen Farmer always raves about the store on her social media, friends had recommended it too, and then Love Parenting gave me a voucher on top (which I’m actually yet to use!)
You chose the Waffles Nursing Bra and Pants – what do you love most about this set?
I got the Waffles set in both black and oyster pink. And they are the only true nursing bras I have – my others are all more bralette/sleepwear style. I love how comfy it is despite being underwired. (I haven’t worn a wire since I was about 15 weeks pregnant due to tenderness!) I love how it doesn’t look ugly or maternity. I love the shape of the cups that make my breasts look perky even when they’ve had a long night feeding the baby! I love the low cut and smooth finish meaning they work under anything without showing.
As a pregnant woman, how did you find the bra fitting experience?
Being pregnant for the first time meant not knowing what to expect once baby was ‘earth side’. Bridgit was very knowledgeable and made me feel very relaxed. She recommended what size to get based on when my milk came in, and she was totally right. There’s a range of styles in the store and I barely had to lift a finger as I was waited on hand and foot whilst I stayed in the changing room trying things on based on my likes and dislikes. Ordering a size not in store was super easy and delivery was quick to my home. Couldn’t fault the experience in any way!
Is there anything new you learned about nursing bras that other expecting mothers should consider?
I don’t think I learned anything new… but since using it I’ve learned that the Waffles’ polka dot ‘sling’ is great for holding baby’s attention and giving her something to look at whilst feeding!!
The Waffles Nursing Bra is available in a UK 30-38 back size and B-H cup size in black, beige and oyster pink, but TKD Lingerie stock a range of nursing bras from B-J cup.
