Bravado Designs Review & Giveaway



I received a sample from Bravado for the sole purpose of this review

When I posted my Breastfeeding Must Haves post, I sent the link to Bravado letting them know they made my list. I just love their Body Silk Seamless Bra and I also have a Bliss Bra as well. I have loved Bravado from the moment I first tried them with my middle child, 3 years ago now. So I was excited to get to use some items from Bravado with my infant. And since we've now made it 11.5 months nursing I can say that Bravado quickly became my favorite nursing bra. 

So Bravado got back to me and asked if there was anything else I'd like to try! I mentioned the Essential Nursing Tank, which is perfect for layering in this winter chill (or not so chill here in Michigan). They agreed and sent it on my way!

 I received the Essential Nursing Tank in Tuscan Red

It is more burgundy than my camera shows.
 Easy clasps, These are different than the bras and do require 2 hands (for me anyway) but it's still a 2 second thing.
 They turn to the side and then slide out the bottom of the clip.

Bravado has AMAZING customer service as well. 

I was sized for bras by Nordstrom in April (I think?) and got my new nursing size which was a 34 G/H. Since I wear my Bravado body silk seamless 95% of the time (I have 3 of them), I assumed my size was still the same. Body Silk uses the S, M, L, etc sizing, not actual sizes. They are stretchy and fit a variety of sizes. After getting my first Essential Tank in the 34 F/G size, I quickly realized it was big. So I went to try on my D bra and sure enough it fit me, maybe a tad small, but then I tried on my G and it was HUGE!!! So I quickly discovered that I'm pretty much back to my normal size again!!

I let Bravado know and she quickly sent me out a replacement in my correct size. She said having a comfortable fit was the first key to Bravado. It was such a nice gesture since I didn't even ask. But Julie is right, the one that is my size feels a lot more comfortable around the sides of my breasts. But I can still wear both tanks no problem!

The tank washes and dries great. It has a full built in bra inside that is actually supportive and does a great job for me. This tank is really soft and comfortable, has easy clasps and comes in wonderful colors. I love to layer it under my sweaters right now so I can stay warm. 
Some other colors. The other seasonal color is Mykonos Blue


Then it comes in white, black, brown and this Dark Plum




Price: They are about $44 on Amazon

Overall: ***** Love the tank and Bravado themselves

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Bravado in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Bravado for allowing me to review this product and for offering a giveaway
