Finding a good bra to help you nurse easily as well as effectively pump is something I've had trouble with.  There are not too many bras that take on both tasks, so I was delighted when I found Nourish by BeliBea.  This bra seemed to have it all!
"BeliBea is an innovative maternity bra line designed to help all mothers through the nursing journey, offering comfort and convenience so moms can focus on loving, bonding and reveling in the beauty of their new baby." -BeliBea
The Nourish by BeliBea bra comes in a subtle nude shade and is available in almost ALL sizes.   I was pleased to see that this bra has a decent stretch to it to accomodate the fullness we often experience while lactating.
This bra is made of 92% nylon and 8% spandex.  It is wire-free.  There are foam polyester cup pads inserted within the layers of the cups for extra support, comfort and shape.  These pads are removable.
The bra has a V-neck inset with ruching, which is very attractive.  The straps are a smooth, adjustable elastic that extends from the back of the bra then within the front of the bra, under the cups to the band seam.  There are 2 sets of clasps.  When you unclasp the first clasp, you have access to the pumping bra portion/layer of the bra.  There are slits set in perfectly to place your pump flanges in for hands-free pumping.
When you unclasp the second clasp, you have full access to your breast so you can easily nurse your child.  The clasps are very easy to handle with one hand.
Here are more details about the Nourish by BeliBea bra:
* The BeliBea bra line combines the best of traditional maternity bras with both an improved fit and design for better comfort, with the Nourish by BeliBea style also providing the ability to hold pump shields in place for hands-free convenience. 
*  Nourish by BeliBea includes dual panels in each cup that allow mothers to keep the garment in place while breastfeeding, pumping and during what often seems like the few moments in between. The inside panel fits to and holds a breast shield in place for hands-free convenience while pumping, or both panels can be lowered to easily breastfeed. 
*  The hands-free convenience of Nourish by BeliBea not only makes the individual tasks of breastfeeding and pumping more manageable, but it also allows mothers to do both at the same time – saving even more of your limited and precious time. 
*  The BeliBea bra line has a v-neck scoop and center ruching to maintain a feminine shape – no sports bra "uni-boob" here! Nourish by BeliBea also comes with removable pads between the cup panels that offer extra support, comfort and shape. 
*  Nursing mothers demand a new maternity bra that is comfortable but affordable, flexible and durable, simple yet clever – this is the bra line for nursing mothers everywhere. 
*  BeliBea bras incorporate specific design features to ensure every mother’s all-day comfort, including a seamless stretch fit, plush-lined adjustable straps and a ribbed band to provide flexible support. 
*  BeliBea can be ordered on the BeliBea website.
I wear a 40DD, so I chose the XL in case I needed a little extra room.  I am glad that I did, because the bra honestly seemed a little small on me.  I felt the band of the bra, along the sides did not offer enough support.  Just because this was the case for me, it does not mean that this bra wouldn't fit perfectly on someone else.  We all have different shaped bodies, and this is something I experience with MANY bras I've tried, unfortunately.
I think that the flanges were held perfectly in position and I was able to pump an ounce from each side without any shifting whatsoever.
Washing the bra is simple.  Place in a lingerie bag and machine wash cold on a gentle cycle.  Line dry.
What's my favorite thing about this product?  
Several things!  
1- You can nurse and pump simutaneously
2- You can pump hands-free
3- It offers comfort for all day wear
Is there anything that I'd change about this product?
Yes, as I stated earlier, I personally need more side boob support.
I give Nourish by BeliBea a 8/10!

  1. I have a Medela hands-free, but don't use it because it's awkward.
    I direct-latch my current baby, and pump to donate, so a multi-functional bra would be wonderful!
