Expressiva Nursingwear Review & $35 GC Giveaway 3/17 WINNER CLOSED



An e-mail has just been sent to Carol and she has 48 hours to respond before choosing another winner via random.org.

Thanks to all those who entered!

If you are wiser like me (old), you remember the selections we had for purchasing nursing wear and it wasn't pretty.  I have pictures wearing little bears on my shirts and all sorts of cutsie outfits that were okay at that time if I were 10 years old, which I wasn't.  My oldest laughs at some of those pictures but 22 years ago, there was virtually no selection let alone good selections.  I love children and as I added to my family, I found that the selections were improving and looked so good, you could wear them even post pregnancy and nursing pending the style and fit.

My oldest is now going to make me a proud (young) grandma which has greatly confused my six year old who thinks she's going to be a big sister (again).  She can't comprehend her big sister having a baby but in time, she will.  Nothing can be too good for my oldest so focusing a series of posts on maternity, nursing and baby products is quite fun as I love to share new products, great finds and real deals.  I ventured onto Expressiva Nursingwear by another blogger, Ruminations of a Twenty-Something Mom, and I was impressed in the clothing and other items available.

Look at this adorable Feminine Retro Print Top.  The pattern is special as it's multi-colored to help hide leaks which all breastfeeding moms know, it's almost impossible to stay dry.  To feed, you simply lift the bodice and pull aside the material for discreet, quick feeding.  The tie backs allows adjustment to your waist so it is a long wearing shirt to accommodate your changes in size from post pregnancy to whatever your weight ends up at.

It's 95% cotton and 5% spandex which will allow for a shapely fit but not too huggy as we know how we dislike our little love handles that pregnancy brings on to most of us.  It's machine washable thus allowing a great benefit for such a beautiful shirt that can be worn with slacks, capris, jeans or a skirt.
The Empire Tank Top in Organic Cotton is another eye catcher.  Two wrap style nursing openings are accessed under the horizontal seam.  It's lightweight and made of 100% organic cotton with no tags.  This one is also machine washable. 

As with the other shirt, it is available in XS, S, M, L and XL and a variety of colors.

Expressiva Nursingwear also provides readers to read actual reviews provided by customers.  To me, this shows a profound level of honesty in helping their customers choose.  The reviews were helpful to read and helped shape our decision on what to choose.

Expressiva has many items to choose with a variety of clothes to organic and swimwear to covers, accessories and gifts.

I have not seen a product like this and being a new mother, it's easy to forget given the lack of sleep.  Expressiva also has Mothers Minders Bracelets at only $4.99 and are available in blue or pink:

  • By turning the dial, record and monitor your baby's feedings, nap schedule or medication

  • By using this bracelet, you will discover your baby's natural routine for eating, burping, diaper changes, sleeping, playing and the need for love and attention

  • Reduces stress for you and your baby! When your baby starts to fuss or cry, quickly refer to the time on the bracelet to assess and address your baby's needs

The Reviews:

Two panel members reviewed the Bravado Lifestyle Microfiber Bra and the Feminine Retro Print Top Purple/Black.

The Retro Print Top is made of cotton and 5% spandex which allows for a softness with a little elasticity to make it comfortable to wear.  It's lightweight and will be great for the summer months but versatile enough to wear under a sweater or suit to look great.  The tie backs allow the top to grow or decrease in size which is wonderful news for those that lose weight post pregnancy.  Buying nursing wear can be expensive and finding nursing wear that adapts to the changes in the body is practical and desired.  This top offers that great feature.

Another key feature that promotes versatility and ease is how the bodice lifts up to allow for easy feeding.  This allows any mom to nurse with ease, comfort and privacy.  Color variations include purple and black or red and black in a variety of sizes.

This top appears to be indicative of all the clothing options offered by Expressiva Nursingwear in terms of comfort, versatility and the ability to have the option to feed with relative obscurity.  Our panel member recommends this top to any pregnant mom or nursing mom.
Bravado Lifestyle Microfiber Bra is soft and comfortable due to the silky microfiber material it's made of.  The inner cup lining is made of Bravado's CottonFlex for increased comfort and breathability.  The best feature of this bra is the single handed nursing clips and the ability to adjust as needed.  Any convenience in nursing is wanted and this bra offers that convenience.  The shapely contours of the material are also seamless and with t-shirt weather coming, that is nice. 
Being a past nursing mother, I also looked at the bra before passing it on to LM from our panel and also found the ease with the clasps.  I remember struggling with clasps from bras but this one is so nice and convenient.
Both the shirt and the bra received glowing reviews from our two panel members.  Having a choice to wear fashionable, comfortable and convenient nursing is key to being a happy mommy!  The prices are very reasonable, the quality is high and the comfort is wonderful.  We recommend Expressiva Nursingwear!
