Having spent a long time lusting over the garments on this site throughout my pregnancy I finally succumbed to purchasing this bra after a bad experience in a popular bra store where I was looked at like a weirdo for asking if they had any nice maternity bras, maybe some with a little shape to them, was told no they are just for nursing. Received this one in the mail just 3 days after buying it online. It is pretty and oh so comfortable and is so nice to finally have a nursing bra that keeps the girls where they should be. So there, you can breastfeed and look and feel good too.
Best nursing bra ever and trust me, I've gone thru many. It is super supportive. I highly recommend it. The cup sizes tend to run a bit small, so I recommend purchasing a size larger than you typically are (going by US size).
Very pleased with the quality and fit of the bra. Naturally large chested and a first time mom, I didn't know what size I would be once my milk came in. The size charts were really helpful. Abd tgrv shipping was very fast. Overall a great experience.
So pleased to see how well constructed & functional, yet feminine & sexy this nursing bra is. It has enough give in the cups to allow for growth while my milk is coming in. Lots of hooks & eyes to adjust for a shrinking rib cage. Love it!!!
A very pretty nursing bra. I would advise going a size up in the cup as they run a tad small, but for me once my milk supply has adjusted, this will be my favorite day time bra. Easy to clip and unclip the cups and did I mention how pretty it is! Love the flex underwire for added support!
Best maternity/nursing bra! Very well constructed, supportive, and very beautiful all in the same bra. Large range of adjustability in the bra really assures a comfortable and perfect fit. I also love how you have large cup sizes available for small band sizes.
I bought this bra to wear underneath a dress to a wedding while 7 months pregnant. The sweet relief of having a supportive bra that fitted beautifully and gave me the nice smooth shape under the lace bodycon dress I chose for my friends wedding. I'd tried several bras on under the dress and they'd all given me the underarm bulge which I didn't like. I got fitted with this bra and immediately felt supported and held up (I'm a 12G so not feeling like I'm hanging down near my knees is important). I got so many compliments on the day of the wedding and felt so good in this bra that I ended up treating myself to every colour of flexiwire bra I could get in my size. I'm still breast feeding my one year old and all the bras are still going strong. I will be treating myself to the best for all my future pregnancies and breast feeding. Thank you Cake Lingerie!
This bra is great! Stylish and holds the "girls" in place. It's also great because there is double back clasps than a regular bra. Room to fit.
I don't usually leave reviews but this bra is amazing. I have large breast and found it difficult to find a breastfeeding bra to fit. My specialty shop only had one in my size and it fit horribly But I was afraid to order online. So when this bra finally came I was happy it fit wonderfully and is so soft. It does run on the smaller side.
I love this bra! It is so comfortable. Usually bras in my size 34I are very blah, but this one is really pretty. The fit is very good, the band is soft and doesn't slip up or down. The straps are sturdy but I really like that they're not the typical 3 inch wide straps that I usually find with this size. Makes it show easier when they're that thick. The material is light and does hold in heat. The extra hooks in the back make me feel very secure so my girls are held right in place which helps my back not feel strained. Would definitely recommend; And I'm working in another color!
This bra is very supportive. I wear a 40J and support is very important. I love this bra so much I have owed two.
I love my new bra.
its firm in the cup for added support as well as the flexiwire.
its a shame that it doesn't come in a bigger cup but its still the most comfortable and supported bra I own.
I like my new bra but wish it came in bigger cup sizes.
As a nursing mum it's never good to compromise on size.
It's a good quality bra. highly recommend.
Second time around, I decided to get myself some nice new feeding bras! I shopped online and was pleasantly surprised with the range Cake Lingerie had to offer. I wanted something very supportive and also something that was not too sheer and somewhat concealed the "nippleage". I found both features in the Licorice Twist Bra. I feel 'uplifted' and confident in this Bra and have no issues feeding with it. Initially I did not order the right size but found the online sales team to be super helpful and that was sorted for me, no problems.
Really pleased with my purchase it's a pretty bra, the cotton lining makes it really comfortable especially if you are on the larger side and are prone to sweat a bit in the warmer months. At first it rubbed slightly under my arms, but as with all new bras I found it just needed to be worn in a bit. I wish the sizes went up higher I think I could do with one or maybe even 2 sizes bigger as I have very large breasts (uk size J) I purchased the largest size I could and with milk my breasts are almost overflowing, but it is by far the best nursing bra I have found and believe me I have tried a few! The adjustable back straps are excellent, very wide so provides a lot of support, and the wide shoulder straps have a felted side so they feel really comfortable against your skin. I love the fact that it underwired as I still feel sexy in it, and my breasts are given a lift, which they need, I hate the way most maternity bras give you the uni boob...very unattractive! Thanks Cake you definitely answered my prayers!
Beautiful bra, great quality! Better than any bra I've seen sold in the US.
Unfortunetly, even after speaking with a specialist to convert my US size to an AU size, the size I ordered was too small. I am considering ordering another one in a bigger size.
Anyone ordering a bra, I would suggest going up a cup size from what you currently wear. The band is wonderful, as it provides 6 rows of hook and eye clasps, giving lots of extra room on the band.
I had been looking for a wired nursing bra in my size and I found this one at a store then decided to purchase two more online. very supportive. The side boning does pinch a little.
Caveat emptor: let the buyer beware. For the price, one would expect a higher-quality product. Be certain you're familiar with the costs involved in returning Cake products prior to purchase!
PrettY, BUT NOT supportive at all! I am a larger cup size and this bra is about as supportive as the ten dollar nighttime bra I bought at a chain store. Do NOT recommend if you have a larger bust. I would return, except I've already washed it.
