I’m delighted to bring you a giveaway from TLB sponsor Nursing Bra Express. With a wide range of styles and products, Nursing Bra Express has something for everyone, fitting from A-M cups. I hope you enjoy this interview with founder and owner Dara Davignon. She shares about her business, working with moms, and what she personally looks for in a bra.
TLB: What is your favorite part about working with moms and helping them get into comfortable, quality bras?
Dara: The nicest thing about moms (and moms-to-be) that I’ve encountered is how nice they are! I have yet to come across an difficult or overly hormonal pregnant or nursing mom. Any mom that has called in, has been very excited about her new journey as a mom and is looking forward to nursing. Times are tough, and it’s so refreshing to know there is a lot of positive energy out there.
TLB: What are mistakes women often make when selecting a bra?
Dara: A lot of first time moms immediately choose an underwire bra. If they call or email me, I have to route them to a comfort bra style for their early stages of nursing…many of them don’t realize how uncomfortable an underwire bra will be when their milk is stabilizing.
TLB: Share your favorite tip for finding a good fitting bra and any advice you have for buying bras online.
Dara: Our staff lactation consultant wrote an article that’s posted on our website about “when to buy a nursing bra”, there are lots of helpful tips about fit. I hope all moms who come to our website read this article http://www.nursingbraexpress.com/content/when-buy-nursing-bra-proper-bra-fit-nursing-mom .
TLB: What do you personally look for in a bra?
Dara: I like stylish bras best, like the Sexy Lace Nursing Bra we are giving away. The best thing about this new bra is that it’s cotton, non-underwire, affordable AND it looks good!
