Anita Maternity Microfiber Underwire Nursing Bra Review
Anita is a famous manufacturer of elegant and quality swimwear and lingerie for more than 30 years now. Its mission did not fail soon-to-be and breastfeeding moms, too, when they also included maternity and nursing bras in their collection.
Not all nursing and maternity bras are wireless. One example is this Anita Maternity Microfiber Underwire Nursing Bra. It is comfortable to wear while giving your breasts the right amount of lift they need during these sensitive times.
- Light, breathable fabric for increased comfort
- Front clips for quick access
- Backstrap adjusts in 3 levels
- Thick straps for stronger support
- Thin fabric allows it to dry quickly
- Thin cups do not conceal the nipples enough
What To Expect
Don’t get your hopes too high. You might assume that this is a good-looking bra by its advertisement. However, this actually does not look like Calvin Klein’s T-shirt bra. Although it is wired, it does not have any pads at all.
That being said, your biggest problem with this Anita bra would be concealing your nips. In terms of comfort and support though, why not? This Anita creation will be good enough.
The Anita Maternity Microfiber Underwire Nursing Bra uses 100% polyester material. Needless to say, polyester is both lightweight and breathable. Imagine how much comfort wearing this bra would bring on your skin.
This is a great bra to wear during the warm months or simply if you’re the type who sweats a lot. Who says you need to deal with your brassiere’s wet fabric brushing against your skin the entire day? With the polyester material, sweat evaporates instead of just lingering in the fabric.
Also, because it uses thin, breathable fabric, it makes washing and drying fast and easy. Remember that you cannot spin dry brassieres for their delicate fabric, so it’s a good thing this Anita nursing bra dries out too quickly.
Style and Design
On first look, yes this bra can be a turn-off. Its cups lack shape. It does not look like your ideal everyday bra although it is wired. Yet, you shouldn’t judge bras based only on their appearance. In fact, you should consider other factors more such as fit and comfort.
Since this Anita maternity bra does not have enough lining and padding for shape, it will be more flattering on women with bigger breasts. However, given that the pads are thin, this will affect anyone who wears it by making the nips seen under a shirt.
While some women do not mind, if you are not comfortable with your nipples showing underclothes, a better solution to this would be using good nursing pads under the bra. Just make sure to insert them properly to avoid creating unpleasant bulges.
Fit and Comfort
The Anita Maternity Microfiber Underwire Nursing Bra is comfortable to wear mostly because of its light and breathable fabric. It stretches well that it makes a good choice for nursing breasts which are naturally tender and sensitive.
If you have fuller breasts and don’t want to make your breasts look a lot bigger, then this one’s for you. While its thin cups will not increase the size of your breasts, it will retain if not improve the shape. Thanks to its underwires that lift and support the breasts without the stabbing pain.
Back and Shoulder Straps
For the back and shoulder straps, this Anita maternity bra is also using polyester. The back straps are stretchable and have 3 sets of hooks and eyes for adjustment. You can also adjust the shoulder straps which allow you to still be able to wear the bra when you gain or lose weight.
Most women gain weight after pregnancy and their breasts get bigger too. With all components stretchable and the latches padded, you would barely experience any chafing and pinching or digging pain from its bands and straps.
Cups and Underwire
While the cups only look padded on some sites, even though it has no way to shape and contour your girls, it is still a comfortable bra. It stretches well, yet if you fall in between two sizes, choose the bigger size to have some additional room.
Remember that the breasts may become fuller with every missed nursing and this will help make the wait more comfortable.
The underwires are also impressive in terms of comfort. They extend all the way up to the midsection of your breasts. Although they are sewn right next to each other, you will appreciate that this does not create the uni-boob effect.
Just like in the b.tempt’d B.wow’d Push-up Bra, the underwires do not stab the sides of your breasts when they get stiff and full. While some bras will never fail to remind you about the underwires, this bra is different. The underwires are extra padded to avoid discomfort, similar to the Syrokan Max Control Underwire Sports Bra.
Certainly, you know the hassles when you are a breastfeeding mom. Thankfully though, the Anita Maternity Microfiber Underwire Nursing Bra has front clips to help nursing moms simplify breastfeeding.
With the front clips, breastfeeding is simpler. This is an ideal bra to wear when you are outside or at work and need to pump breast milk. It would not take much time to clip and unclip the closure.
With careful handwashing, this maternity bra by Anita may last longer than expected. Its seams, straps, and other components are finely stitched. Still, you have to avoid the spinner to dry this bra.
Anita Maternity Microfiber Underwire Nursing Bra may not be impressive when it comes to its cups for the absence of pads and linings. Still, this is a good bra in terms of comfort. It has adjustable straps and underwire for support, and front clips for easy breastfeeding.
