It’s been just a couple weeks since we brought home a baby boy, and in my discombobulated and sleepy state, all I know is that every day down feels like a victory! I am so grateful for the little things, like a stolen nap here and there, chocolates sent from a sweet girlfriend, and encouragement from veteran mothers. I also never dreamed I could love and depend on a bra so much, specifically the life-saving T-shirt Bra by Swedish company Boob. The package was waiting for me as soon as I arrived home from the hospital, so I immediately switched to the super-comfy bra. Since then, I have only taken it off to wash it! Since keeping the little guy satiated requires feedings every 2-3 hours, quick access is paramount and comfort is a must as I fall asleep wearing it. Once I start returning to the “real world” and wearing something besides maternity clothes, I wanted a bra which gave me some shape and smooth contours, and this fit the bill perfectly. The T-shirt bra comes with removable pads and just in case, the size can be extended with the hook-and-eye ribbon. There’s no uncomfortable underwire but it is still firmly supportive. The fastening is extra wide (4 rows of hooks) so it doesn’t dig into skin. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, the fabulous people at Boob have created the bra from recycled polyamide, making it a green option!
Even though we ended up with a fresh blanket of white snow on the first day of spring, I am optimistic about the weather warming up very soon. I’ll be living in Boob’s super-comfy and cute Simone dress with nautical stripes, which will never give away its identity as a nursing dress! The nursing overlap is cleverly hidden as an empire waist, adjustable with a drawstring. The soft and stretchy high-quality material is not too clingy as to give away unsightly lines and bumps, which I definitely appreciate. The knit is 95% certified organic cotton (perfect for baby’s skin to rest against) and 5% elastane. So bring on the sun, this mama can’t wait!
