Vitality Yoga Nursing Bra – our review
In this review of the Vitality Yoga Nursing Bra by Hotmilk we’ll cover 12 areas of testing. We’ll dive right into our review here with the 12 different areas we tested.
1. Overall Quality
This is a great quality bra.
The website states that the sizing is ‘fitting firm’ and it’s advised to order one size bigger than other Hotmilk bras. The sizing is S = 30, M = 32, L = 34, XL = 36, XXL = 38. I ordered an XL usually wear a 36D bra.
Lovely fitting and super comfy. The bra came with an 5 hook and eye extension to make the band bigger if required. I didn’t need to use it.
4. Fastening (front/back/other)
Rear racer back fastening.
5. Wired / Non-wired?
6. Easy to put on
Yes. Pull it up over your hips or over your head like a t-shirt. Fasten the hook and eyes, twist round and pop your arms in. Voilà!
7. Overall Comfort – before, during and after exercise.
This bra is so comfortable… in fact you hardly notice you’re wearing it. I tested the bra several times doing different types of exercise (if you check out my Instagram feed you’ll see it in action). It’s a really comfortable yoga nursing bra that provides enough support and comfort during low impact activities such as bodyweight workouts, yoga, pilates, walking and stretching. I also nursed my 13 month old wearing it.
8. Chest movement when exercising
This bra isn’t designed to be ultra-supportive for high-impact activities. It was supportive enough however during the low impact workouts I did.
9. Easy to nurse wearing
Very easy. It has a traditional side sling opening to breastfeed baby.
10. Pocket for nursing pad/does it stay put
Not applicable with this nursing bra.
11. Sweat/moisture wicking
I barely broke a sweat during my workouts so wasn’t able to test this fully.
12. How it washes
As with many sports bras the label recommends hand washing only however I washed it at 40 degrees with no loss of shape, colour or size.
Vitality Yoga Nursing Bra – summary
A lovely nursing bra for pregnant and breastfeeding mums. Great quality, so comfortable, washes well, easy access for nursing and looks good too.
