REVIEW: Bella Materna Plunge T-shirt Bralet



Some of you may or may not know that I am currently 7 months pregnant with my husband and I's son Jace. One thing I've learned from this pregnancy is that every pregnancy is different. My daughter I had a rather smooth and easy going pregnancy with no discomfort until about the last trimester. With my son, I've been having some sort of issue left and right. Nothing serious of course, just the normal pregnancy stuff, but intensified. For instance, I've had acid reflux pretty bad starting ar around just 5 or 7 weeks! My back is almost near constantly hurting. I often feel like passing out (I'm not anemic either). On top of that, I'm often feeling squished! No, nothing is squishing me literally, but clothes on or off I just feel like it's hard to breathe often and all that jazz. Like I said, typical pregnancy things, but nothing I had issues with when it came to Sophia. Well I teamed up with Bella Materna to give their Plunge T-shirt Bralet a try, which couldn't come at a better time since I feel like for the 3rd time my bras aren't fitting right!


About Bella Materna


Bella Materna is the premier source of quality apparel for pregnancy and breastfeeding. We create sophisticated styles and beautifully crafted designs to help you celebrate and support your body during this amazing phase of life.

Founded by Anne and Candace, they were seeking to use their talents as designers to serve other women. We met designing for Nordstrom, and started dreaming in 1999 about this company, hearing; 'there is no such thing as a pretty nursing bra'." Bella Materna was born to help all moms around the globe.

Launched in 2000, our Bella Materna collection includes maternity bras, camisoles, sleepwear, transition, workout and loungewear. All designs reflect the knowledge that women grow more beautiful during pregnancy and nursing, and what they wear should enhance, not hide, this loveliness. All moms know this time of life is amazing, but not without challenges. We exist to support you through these challenges and achieve your goals with strength and grace!

Using intrinsic elements of style, design, fit and comfort, Bella Materna has revolutionized the maternity/nursing bra proving that fashion and function can beautifully coexist. The line is designed with quality first. Always with easy access & versatility at the forefront our products are flattering during both the pregnancy and post pregnancy phases; and for your next baby too!

In 2008 we created 'Infinity Rings' because so many moms came back to us when finished nursing because our bras were the most comfortable they had found; made to last and they were pretty! So we turn many of our nursing bras into regular bras for moms. We have served moms for all of their babies; women say; "I love my Bella Materna it served me well in the last pregnancy, I am going to add more to my wardrobe". Or we will also hear; "the last pregnancy I suffered with low quality bras, not this time, I deserve quality that will last for this baby and any future pregnancies".

Bella Materna products are made from high quality, materials that are Oeko-Tex 100 certified to be free of toxins for moms and babies. 90% of all items are manufactured in the USA (Seattle WA) and are always produced under safe healthy conditions. We believe in what we make: 100% satisfaction guaranteed.


My Thoughts

You see, I knew the "girls" would be growing - it's inevitable and it's going to happen when you get pregnant among other things. So of course I bought me some new bras when the time came to need some. Then a couple months ago I bought some more because well I needed them again. And then NOW I'm seeing I could use some more. You have got to be kidding me! Once again, with my daughter buying just once was good enough - not this one! So as I said, the opportunity came at a perfect time to try out the Plunge T-Shirt Bralet!



Seriously sexy, versatile, adjustable, and comfortable, our T-Shirt Wire free bra pairs lifted shaping, alluring mesh and gold with all the functional features sophisticated new moms ask for.  This style works wonderfully both for your maternity & nursing bra.  Features include:
  • Easy S, M & L sizing with flexible cup fit
  • 3 extra set hook and eye closure at back for maternity ba
  • Moulded cups for smooth coverage and extra support
  • Convertible racer back hook option built in
  • Patented nursing clip access
  • Wide plush band at hem for comfort and support
Recommended care: Hand or Machine wash warm gentle cycle. Line dry for longevity.  Imported.

  • Large: 36E, 38C, 38D, 38E

Price: $58.00      Style: 1699      

While this bra isn't the fanciest, it definitely did fit me much better and more comfortable than the other bras I have been wearing. What I like about this particular one is the fact that instead of just 3 hook settings, it comes with 6. If all the bras I had purchased came with this feature it would have saved me many shopping trips because that's where the problem comes in! As the size increase I need more hook room and this bra gives it to me so I can comfortably wear the bra. Also, it is a nursing bra and since I do plan to breastfeed I can comfortably wear this once Jace is born and still nurse him.



Overall I had a wonderful experience with Bella Materna and the bra I selected. I would highly recommend them and their products, especially for all my pregnant mama's going through a nice sized growth spurt as well!
