Any woman that has nursed her children knows the difficulties all mothers face in finding lingerie that makes them feel good about themselves while at the same time being practical for the women and their babies to use. In other words, the lingerie must be sexy, luxurious and nursing-accessible.
Since 2006, Condessa Los Angeles, has been filling the gap in this much-needed sector of the lingerie industry. A team who believes that “Breastfeeding is Beautiful”, Condessa provides “the fine breastfeeding lingerie that nursing mothers deserve”. In the short time that the company has created nursing lingerie, it has grown to become a high profile label with features in many magazines, television shows, and distribution throughout the world. Dozens of retail boutiques and online stores offer the brand that includes two collections, the Cassandra and the Veronica.
The Cassandra Nursing Bra with its patent pending design and matching panties is one of the sexiest, stylish, practical and most comfortable nursing bras on the market. In seven rich and alluring colors, Captivating Mocha, Tempting Rose, Seductive Sunset, Enticing Turquoise, Rapturous Grape, Ravishing Red, and Alluring Black, this wonderful collection includes the front snap nursing bra, bikini panty, briefs, thong, shorts, and minimizer briefs.
Meticulously detailed, the Cassandra line offers bras with pretty pearl closures, three-quarter cups, plenty of lace, eighteen percent spandex, no underwire, and wide, soft satin shoulder straps. The matching panties are cotton lined inside with pretty lace on the outside coupled with a hint of spandex for fit and durability. They are made to fit comfortably during pregnancy and after. And the minimizer briefs are high waisted with reinforced front panel and delicate lace inserts.
In addition to the Cassandra Lace line of garments, there is also a Cassandra Smooth with the same pretty detailing and excellent features absent of lace. The bras are a molded, seamless design in microfiber to give a very smooth appearance.
The Veronica Collection offers a more daring design with the demi-cup bra, underwire support, and a sleeker fitting panty. It is available in bolder metallic colors that shimmer of motherhood. Intense colors called Shimmering Pearl, Treasured Copper, Precious Chocolate, and Sparkling Silver look lavish and regal. The bra is made of molded, seamless, Shimmering Miliskin microfiber and conveniently unclips at the satin shoulder strap. The matching panties are offered in bikini, brief or minimizer styling.
Bra sizes come in 32C to 40E but the panties are only available in sizes four through ten. This seems quite odd as many women would not be that small and could not benefit from having matched sets. It may be that sizes run large but there is no chart with which to compare. They do have a toll free number and a customer service page so it might be wise to call or email first.
Magazines that have highlighted Condessa include Beauty & Style, Mothering, I’m Pregnant, Canadian Family, Underlines, Celebrity Baby Clothes and Mommies with Style.
