How to Measure Your Bra Size & Hotmilk Lingerie Nursing Bra Giveaway (Closed)

Hotmilk-Lingerie-Chic-Pink-Nursing-Bra

I am hosting this giveaway on behalf of Hotmilk Lingerie. As usual, all opinions are my own.

When I was younger, my mother owned a lingerie store and I worked there for about 3 years. In that time, I learned the importance of the right undergarments. I’m so glad that I had that experience because I always focus on my undergarments when I dress. Let’s face it, you can have the most gorgeous dress but if your underwear doesn’t fit well or the wrong size it will ruin your outfit. I think the hardest period for us women to find the perfect underwear pieces especially bras is immediately after giving birth. I shared some tips and outfit ideas here and in my postpartum styling video to get through that period but I wanted to ensure that you get the right size bra. It’s important that you educate yourself on bra measurements and to find the right size.ย  You may need to abandon these bras later as your body changes again and you lose pregnancy weight but to be comfortable I would recommend that you invest in a few new bras for this period.

If you don’t feel comfortable with a stranger taking your measurements or you are ordering online you can measure your bust size at home.

Okay, so once you’ve determined your size it’s time to get a new bra. Finding nursing bras that don’t look like granny underwear is a serious challenge. Recently, I learned about Hotmilk Lingerie which got me really excited. I have to say that I love this company’s name, fits the brand perfectly. Hotmilk sells beautiful nursing and maternity bras. If you are determined to not slip up and lose your sexy during and after pregnancy these bras are perfect for you. What I love about Hotmilk is their flexi-wire system, I remember my Lamaze class teacher telling us to purchase nursing bras without under-wires during my first pregnancy and thinking “Say what?” She explained that under-wires reduce your milk production. That may be the case for some women (wasn’t for me) but if you want to be on the safe side the flexi-wire is perfect or you can choose from the brand wire-less bras which are perfect for sleeping in.ย  Here’s everything you need to know about how flexiwire works.

Here are some of my favorite styles from Hotmilk Lingerie.

      Congratulations Valerie! That’s true as your body will change. These are some of the most beautiful ones I’ve seen.

    I am not yet a mother but knowing about the proper type of nursing bra is certainly something I need to know about….

    • RattlesandHeels

      That’s awesome that you have someone who you’re comfortable with to go with you Reginia.

    • RattlesandHeels

      That’s right MJ lol That’s what Fab Haute Mamas like ๐Ÿ™‚

  • iluv2globetrot

    This is great advice! I used to work in the lingerie dept of Macy’s and it’s amazing how many women had no idea what their correct bra size was.

    • RattlesandHeels

      It’s pretty sad as a mom I will definitely teach my daughter the importance of sizing.

  • These nursing bras are cute! Definitely thinking about ordering some so that I’ll be prepared whenever we start TTC for baby 3.

    • RattlesandHeels

      These are perfect and if you’re thinking about ordering, I saw some nice ones on sale.

  • Camesha

    These look nothing like the nursing bras I wore! Very pretty. I love the name “Hotmilk” too!

    I used to work for Victoria’s Secret catalog and learned so much about undergarments! I totally feel you! I totally carry with me ALL that I learned.

    • RattlesandHeels

      I feel the same Camesha! I’m not sure why the nursing bras are usually look like “old lady” bras.

  • Hotmilk…what a name and my nursing bras looked nothing like these…these are so cute!

    • RattlesandHeels

      I know the name is definitely a catchy but fit’s the brand oh-so perfectly.

  • So many of us wear the wrong size bra. Thanks so much for the valuable information especially with the helpful hints on how to measure your size in the comfort of your home.

    • RattlesandHeels

      Hey Kimberly, no problem. Our bodies change so much over the years it’s nice to be able to do it ourselves.

  • Christine St.Vil

    Aw man, these bras are about 3 years too late for me, but oh so super cute! I’ll definitely be sharing with my nursing/pregnant friends! And thank you so much for the sizing tips so now I can do it myself.

    • RattlesandHeels

      I feel the same way Christine, they are so beautiful.
