REVIEW: Lucky Sew & Sew’s Lucky Muthah Nursing Bra

I’ve been sent a bra from Lucky Sew & Sew to do an honest review. I have not been paid to write this.

As I’ve basically had to get rid of all my nursing bras after being ‘Boob or Busted‘, this is a welcome addition to my collection!

On their Facebook page, Lucky Sew & Sew describe themselves as…

“… the brain child of a Mother and Daughter team who both love vintage style lingerie and clothing and love to create pieces that they day dream about wistfully in a little town in Essex, UK.”

I’ve been measured as a 32HH/J (bra dependant) so finding a bra that fits is no easy feat!

I gave them my measurements instead of ordering a size. I measure 34 underbust and 44 overbust. My measurements seem to defy logic as I fit most comfortably in 32 band bras!

When the bra arrived, I was quite impressed with the box it came in, as well as the awesome accompanying badges which I will wear with pride!

When I tried the bra on, I was pleased it managed to fit my boobs! The first thing that came to mind was: this is much less tight on the band then a ‘normal bra’. It’s like it’s made of a slightly looser elastic. This meant the band was much looser and therefore a bit less supportive than I am now accustomed to! But that was ok because one of the perks of ordering from Lucky Sew & Sew is the free alterations! I sent it back and asked her to whip off a few inches. It came back feeling MUCH better and more supportive.

Aesthetically, these bras are definitely not for everyone. The style is quite alternative and vintage looking. I personally love this style and have no fear of it being seen alongside my clothes. It’s a long time coming that a nursing bra deviated from the ‘norm’!

The extra stretch in the bust means it makes a fantastic maternity bra and the non restrictive cups also means it is great in the early days when your boobs are doing good Dolly Parton impressions several times a day, if not all day!

To conclude, if super supportive bands are your thing, this probably isn’t the bra for you. However, if you want a lightly supportive comfy and alternative then this is right up your street! I would pick one of these over HotMilk soft bras any day!

These bras are currently reduced to £30 from £40 for the month of October!

These bras are available in 3 patterns!

    I think these look so great. Like you say it’s nice to have something different on the market and date I say it, sexy!

    They look really cool…love the personal touch – one of perks of brands like this. It’s great it can be made to order, to your particular size…and that they offer free adjustment of needed.

    Lovely style too. Does it unclipped top down like other nursing bras?

    Good review, thanks.

      Yes it’s the standard nursing bra clip bringing the cup down! ?
