I have under-estimated the value of a decent bra for most of my adult life. I love pretty underwear. There’s something feminine about it. It makes me feel good… I like it – I just never thought it was a worthwhile investment. Until I had my first bra-fitting for a decent bra: one that doesn’t cut in the shoulders, bulge in the wrong places, or cause red marks in the elasticated areas. I think every woman should have a bra fitting from time to time, after the big changes, and before spending money on the wrong sized bra. Remember, it’s pregnancy, not breastfeeding that changes your breasts!
BoobieMilk is owned and run by Karen, mum to two little people. She lived and worked in the US for 8 years before returning to her home town of Sevenoaks a year ago. Since then she has set up BoobieMilk – the at-home and online bra fitting service and store.
What makes BoobieMilk different from some other services is that Karen arrives with her stock, so that you have your fitting and she leaves your new goodies behind on the day, meaning there’s no waiting for orders to be filled, and post to arrive.
Karen has extensive experience supporting mothers in breastfeeding and in bra-fittings in a professional capacity in the US, and is utilising that experience here, now.
The nursing camisole has an A-frame support cup the flap of which drops down to reveal the nipple and part of the breast, without losing the support for the rest of the breast, so you’re not fighting gravity one-handed when trying to reattach the clip after nursing, which I think is pretty useful. It’s also fantastic for wearing under a normal, non-maternity top, as you can then breastfeed discreetly by lifting the top shirt, which exposes the camisole, then dropping the cup without having to expose your middle, which is particularly useful in winter, as well as while you may still be feeling a little self-conscious about that extra layer of eating for two you know you really shouldn’t have done.
