I did a small research and found out that there are 2 types of clothing shops for breastfeeding mums: expensive ones and those who sell small sizes (max size 14 or 16). How disappointing right?!
Thankfully I found Bella Mama who kindly offered to review Ava nursing top (£22).
Bella Mama is a small, busy boutique specialising in chic, contemporary breastfeeding clothing and transitional maternity wear for new mamas, blending fabulous style with amazing comfort. To complement this, we also offer a lovely range of beautiful baby bags,swaddling blankets, nursing necklaces, nursing covers, changing mats and indulgent skincare.
The Ava nursing top in black (comes in amethyst colour as well) is a very practical, smart looking and flattering. I wanted to feel comfortable whilst breastfeeding and the Ava top certainly gives me this feeling. It doesn't look like a typical baggy top, you can wear Ava for an occasion as well.
I was a little bit worried about "love handles" and big-ish arms but Ava top complements my figure and it's soft fabric seems to hide those lumps and bumps I didn't want to be on show as well as it is very easy to clean if you had a little bit of baby sick or baby food on just use wet wipes and it will look as good as new.
Most importantly it is very easy to feed in by using the holes in the under layer, which looks quite discreet. Having said that I always use nursing cover when out and about as it is more convenient for me to have an extra layer covering myself and my baby.
