Innovations and advantages
BRAS 1. Discreet feeding It is the only breastfeeding bra in the world allowing discreet feeding. This means one is at ease wherever and with whomever. 2. Less risk for cracked nipples and stripes thanks to powernet special shaped underwire. The underwire was especially designed for the feeding breast. Thanks to the curved form, the underwire does not put pressure on the milk channels and there is always sufficient space when the breast fills with milk. Helps preventing cracked nipples The inner bra with powernet keeps the breast in place, even during feeding. This always keeps the nipple in the correct position meaning that baby can ‘latch on’ easier. This helps preventing cracked nipples. No need to support the breast continuously anymore with hands or other attributes, which makes breastfeeding in public or during visits far more comfortable. Less risk for stripes Moreover, because of the permanent support, the skin suffers less under the weigh-down, meaning that there is far less risk for stripes. 3. Stylish breastfeeding Slimmer silhouette Because the breasts are well supported, women look slimmer. The performed outer cup camouflages nipples and breast compresses, meaning that one can perfectly wear this bra under tight clothing. No more high triangles, ideal to wear under tops and low-cut dresses. Nobody will notice that one wears a breastfeeding bra. This means that working and extracting are not a problem anymore. 4. Hands free expressing The breast pump fits between the flaps of the inner cup and remains in place, meaning that there is no need for extra auxiliaries and that one can express hands free. CLOTHES: 1. Ingenious opening system Dual opening system compatible with the breastfeeding bra; can also be used with a classic feeding bra. 2. Ingenious system remembers which side to feed from Intelligent system for closing the fold remembers whether feeding left or right.
