Form Over Function?

A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times published an article about nursing bras.  Their angle was discovering that surprisingly (?) women who are nursing are also interested in having pretty bras that are also nursing bras!

{insert awkward silence}

The article sparked a series of blog posts about how it shouldn't be surprising that women who are breastfeeding might also like to wear pretty lingerie.  Given the "controversy," one of the brands featured in the article, Cake Lingerie, is hosting a survey and giveaway on the topic.

Can maternity and nursing bras be feminine, functional and versatile all at the same time? 

Cake Lingerie will be giving out 30 bras; one each day from 12th Sep to 11th Oct – inviting pregnant and nursing women to judge its fit, function, support, attitudes and designs.  Register your participation at and follow the prompts.

If you are in one of these categories, I highly recommend you check out the survey and Cake's offerings.

As for my opinion?  I do think, just like any lingerie, nursing bras can and should be feminine, functional, and sexy.  Relegating nursing women to terrible looking undergarments is awful!  Maybe the Surgeon General could take up our cause...
