Postpartum Bra Update

Vanishing 360 Bra \\ Vanishing Underwear \\ Collins’ Onesie \\ Denim \\ White Duvet Cover \\ White Sheets

It’s no secret that your boobs will change once you are done breast feeding. Or once you give birth. How fun. It’s crazy how much your body really does change after growing and nurturing a tiny human. Also it’s so amazing!

I breastfed Collins for 6 months before my milk dried up and we switched to formula. During that time I was mostly wearing nursing bras so when I stopped nursing, I needed to invest in new bras. I had been wearing the Soma Enbliss wireless bras throughout my pregnancy and loved how comfortable they were. I actually still wear that bra and would highly recommend if you are looking for a wireless bra that still provides good support.

Soma reached out to me about trying their new Vanishing 360 wire bra and I’ll be honest, I was not excited. I hadn’t worn a bra with a wire in YEARS. I just didn’t like the way they fit. I should probably also clarify that I have breast implants and have since 2012. So for me, wire bras weren’t super comfortable since I didn’t exactly need the wire for support.

I decided to give the Vanishing 360 Bra a chance and I’m so glad I did. In the 2 months since nursing I feel like my boobs have changed. I couldn’t quite put my finger on what the difference was but my wireless bras just weren’t doing the trick for me. I also needed to adjust my sizing and figured that played a part in my discomfort. I am shocked to write this but the wire bra is actually really comfortable. It provides the right amount of support without hurting or digging into my skin like other wires bras do. I really like that it lays flat on my chest so there isn’t that awkward bulge of my bra line showing.

If you are looking for a new bra, please give this bra a shot! I’m actually excited to wear it – never thought I would say that about any bra! If you’ve tried it, let me know your thoughts in the comments below!!

    Does Soma provide sizing guidance? When I was newly postpartum I went to another (VERY pricey) retailer to find some new bras and I felt like they didn’t have any clue how to properly size! I’ve been struggling for the last year to find something that feels and fits better. Thanks for sharing this!

      Yes, they do! They provide online support for sizing as well as personal assistance in store!!

    I’m definitely going to add this to my wish list! I haven’t had a comfortable bra in a while and gaining weight hasn’t helped much haha.

    Thank you for sharing! As someone with very small boobs, I’m interested to hear more about your breast implants. Not sure if there is a blog post on that somewhere already.

    Would love to hear more about your body changes and how you are emotionally dealing with that. For someone getting ready to begin the IVF process and fear of all that comes with it. Body changes, how to get your pre baby body back, and how having a baby changes your perspective on your body.

    Hi Brittany! I can’t help but see where you mentioned that you’ve had breast implants since 2012 in your post. I don’t mean to pry, but I’ve also had implants for almost ten years now and I have recently learned about Breast Implant Illness. The FDA has also just recently admitted that ALL types of breast implants can cause cancer and they have also recently banned quite a few different types of implants. I only tell you this, to warn other woman, of the dangers that implants can cause. My health has significantly declined in the last few years and I now know it is because of my implants. I am only hoping to bring awareness to an issue many woman don’t realize is happening. I loved the post and will look into getting these bras for when I get my implants removed later this year.

    Love & light — Lynn
