Bella Materna Review/Giveaway

Today I'm gonna get my estrogen on & talk GIRL talk on the blog.   Bra talk to be exact!  One of the first pregnancy symptoms I had was breast tenderness.  At first I thought it was all in my head since we were trying, & thought I might be imagining things, but every day it got worse.  Honestly, it is still here to this day!  I didn't know why this happens so I looked it up for all you kind people: Basically -  hormonal changes, additional blood flow to the area, & my personal favorite: growing to make room to feed that baby!

Bella Materna has been my saving grace ever since I got a lovely little package from them to review their "Anytime Bralet" bra.  (And I'm not kidding about the packaging -- gorgeous!) This certain bra is designed for pre pregnancy, pregnancy AND nursing. (Literally an "anytime" bra!") No need to go buy a separate bra for each.  Not only is this bra the creme de la creme of comfort, it is high quality & affordable.  Also, if you're going green -- it's certified toxin free!  Always a plus.

As soon as I put the bra on, it felt HEAVENLY.  It was so comfortable, I almost forgot to take it off to go to bed :)  I cannot wait to use it come nursing/pumping time - it has pull aside nursing access instead snaps, which I've never used before.  I love that because of this, it doesn't even look like a nursing bra!



Here is the picture of the bra.

Today, Bella Materna is kind enough to give one Tales of a Young Housewife reader a bra of their choice!  Go check out their site, find your favorite bra - (They've got some PRETTY stuff, if you're more into the lacy designs.), & leave a comment below with the name of the bra.

For additional entries, share this giveaway on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest!  Leave a comment for each entry.  Good luck!  Winner will be announced Tuesday morning.

  1. I love the Peacock Lace Bralet! I've been having to buy the ugliest, most giant bras during this pregnancy (I went up TWO full cup sizes)! And I would looove something to make me feel a little bit sexier during the nursing stage in a few weeks when our peanut arrives!

  8. I would definitely get the anytime bralet in black! I actually need a nursing bra and hate the one I have with the wires and love the fact that there are no snaps!

  14. Oh my gosh I am so in love with this blog! This is such a HUGE issue with pregnancy (I quickly learned after getting pregnant). I fought maternity bras until I seriously could not BREATH in mine anymore! I bought one of these bras and O.M.G. I kick myself everyday for not doing it sooner.

    I only have one maternity bra right now, which I wear EVERY day and wash every 2 days - because they're so expensive and to be honest, my boobs are growing so fast I don't want to invest in a new one every month.

    SO! With all that - I am DESPERATELY hoping I can win this giveaway!! After looking on their site I'm amazed at all their different styles and types of bras! I'm with you I LOVE the nursing bras with the nursing capabilities and instead snaps! They're amazing!!

    Out of all the bras on their site I think the Peacock Lace Bralet bra is amazing (wireless for more of a comfort fit). I am so impressed at how versatile it is AND at how gorgeous it is! All the maternity bras out there are beige or white, and totally unflattering. THIS bra is amazing! As much as I'd love the underwire version for a little "pushup" - let's face it, these bad boys are a little too big for my liking as is - so I'll go for the wire free version of it and be comfortable, and get a little of my sexy back!
