Win a Mammae Nursing Bra & Pads!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

For National Breastfeeding Week 2012, I’ve been asking retailers to support the UK’s breastfeeding mums by searching their collections for fabulous breastfeeding friendly outfits and providing exciting giveaways.

Update: This competition is now closed, but MilkChic is now a Mammae nursing bra stockist so do take a look at the full Mammae range!

Mammae have recently launched their award-winning nursing bras in the UK and I have a gorgeous Purple Promise Nursing Bra with co-ordinating nursing pads, a set worth over £80, to give away to one lucky breastfeeding mum in celebration of National Breastfeeding Week.

So what’s so different about the Mammae nursing bras? Lots of things!

  • It actually looks nice (and has matching knickers!). Good looking nursing bras are still few and far between.
  • It’s designed to hide lumpy nursing pads and nipples with a smooth, contoured finish.
  • There are pockets to keep the (co-ordinated, washable) nursing pads in while you’re feeding so you don’t have that panicky moment when you realise you’ve left them on a friend’s coffee table…
  • It opens in the centre, so the cups double up as shields for a bit of extra confidence without more layers.
  • It’s supportive – even when open for breastfeeding, with powernet lining under the bust for extra lift.
  • The eye shaped opening gives you control of how much breast you expose – narrow for minimal exposure or wide for easy latch and skin to skin contact.

If you’d like to win one to try for yourself, leave a comment below. For a bonus entry, either like MilkChic on Facebook or tweet the following message:

“I want to win @MammaeUK Purple Promise Nursing Bra

To win, visit the Clothing at Tesco website and then tell me in the comments below what you would like to buy from their range.

For a wedding:

“This show-stopping prom dress is sleeveless in design with a low v-neck, voluminous skirt and belted at the waist, it is a must-have for any formal event.”

This dress is cotton with just a little stretch, and it’s one I’d missed before now but it should stretch for feeding. The straps are wide enough for a bra, and the shape is flattering and feminine. Add a cardigan buttoned cape style, or wear with a nursing vest for confident and stylish public breastfeeding.

F&F online exclusive prom dress, £30
F&F Cotton stretch cardigan, £10
F&F Patent strap Sandals, £15

For summer BBQs:

“You cannot beat a maxi dress for its floor skimming beauty. Finished in a floral print, this lightweight maxi dress is perfect for your next island getaway or garden party. Wear with the highest of heels or strappy sandals.”

The elasticated bandeau top gives great nursing access – combine with a strapless nursing bra for a throw on but glam look.

F&F Long Shell Rope Necklace, £8
F&F Corsage Strappy Sandals, £10

For a night out with the girls:

“Mixing a feminine cut with a fun print we absolutely love this dress from Influence. Finished in an all over swallow print the dress is detailed by a wrap over v-neck, cinched faux leather belt at the waist, long sleeves with button cuffs and a flowing a-line skirt thats screaming to be paired with heels. Fab for styling up your office look or making at entrance at a party.”

The wrap over neckline is perfect for breastfeeding. Layer over a nursing vest for easy access. I just couldn’t resist these fab turquoise heels…

P.S. Not strictly a fashion accessory, but if you’re going out with a baby late at night, the Gunamuna Gunapod is pretty desirable – you can unzip from the bottom to remove nappies or completely remove the front section to stop baby from waking up.

Closing date for entries: 07 July 2012
