I was sent the Mumba nursing bra several weeks ago for me to try out and share my thoughts on it. I like to think I know a thing or two about nursing bras by now judging from the amount that I own and the few I ended up throwing away because they were just awful.
First Impressions of the Mumba nursing Bra
I love the branding of this product and it looks good quality even before opening the packaging. I particularly like the fun boob logo and design! Impressed so far.
The bra has removable padded cups so you can get your desired look. I’ve been wearing it with the cups because I feel they give me some added support too.
Feed With Confidence
The Mumba bra fits me perfectly and the material doesn’t bunch up or sag. I have the medium size and I’m a size 12. I have absolutely no idea what my bra size is now because my boobs have changed so much since being pregnant! The double panel design (modesty panel) of the Mumba covers a lot of your breast when feeding, unlike other nursing bras. The monochrome print on the modesty panel is designed to stimulate and calm your baby which is another feature I’m in love with. Joel constantly gets distracted when feeding so this helps keep his attention on me!
But the biggest thing that has made me love this bra, is that after 6 months of being scared to feed in public, I finally plucked up the courage to whack it out because of the modesty panel. I was on my own and there weren’t many people about, but I did it! I don’t know what it is that’s stopped me in the past as I’m not normally bothered about what people think of me. The cradle position isn’t Joel’s best position, so I can’t be faffing around with a muslin trying to cover up and positioning him right. Now I don’t have to!
A Clever Clasp
One of the things I think is such a smart idea and will make your life so much easier is the clever numbered clasp. It lets you keep track of which boob your baby last fed on by having two hooks on each strap numbered 1-4. I so wish I had this bra in the early days of breastfeeding when I was massively struggling. This little gem of a feature would have made my life so much easier!
“Mumba Bra is unlike any other nursing bra. Designed to address some of the most common breastfeeding problems.
Created by mum of two Elizabeth Morana in response to her own initial struggles with breastfeeding, the ground-breaking bra and patented design has been carefully developed to support mums from pregnancy through to nursing.” www.mumbabra.com
I believe in the saying “You get what you pay for” and at £29, yes it is a little pricey, but it has the goods to back it up. It’s great quality and washes very well so hasn’t lost its shape. I have soooo many nursing bras and this is my go-to nursing bra. In fact, it’s made me dislike the other nursing bras I have so I make sure to wash my Mumba to wear as much as possible. It’s helped me build the confidence to feed in public, that alone is priceless.
