I received the Dark Toffee Convertible Nursing Bra and French Knickers. There was a little confusion on getting the right size at first, but it was quickly fixed and Stephanie was very helpful. Cake Lingerie is shipped from Australia where they use a different measuring system. Using the measuring chart on the website, I was able to determine what size I need. It walks you step by step through how to determine your size. There is a handy conversion chart to help figure out your size based on what country you are in since many countries measure bra sizes differently. I emailed my size in, but didn’t specify I was using the US size, so the bra I received was the wrong cup size. I simply shipped back that one, and quickly received the correct size. Their customer service was fantastic! And, their shipping was really fast. Because it was coming from Australia, I expected it to take longer, but it only took a few days to arrive. There is a 28 day return policy and 100 % satisfaction guarantee.
When my bra arrived, I excitedly opened up the package (I am like a little kid on Christmas every time a package arrives). The first thing I noticed was the beautiful bag. The bra is hand wash, but if you put it into the bag and wash it, you can machine wash it.
The Dark Toffee Convertible Nursing Bra is beautiful. This foam molded bra just screams sophistication. The outer fabric is a matt microfibre with a pretty modal floral print lining on the inside. The inside is 100 % cotton lined enabling the skin to breathe. There are 3 beautiful bows placed by the nursing clips and in between the two cups. Because it is a convertible bra, it has 3 different ways you can wear it and comes with a spare strap. The cups are contoured for a smooth profile under your shirt. The bra is a balcony styled nursing bra with cotton lined straps for comfort. The bra is available in band sizes 32-38 and cup sizes B-H. For cup sizes B, C and D, the bra is wire free. For cup sizes E, F, G, H, the bra has flexible wire for added support. The outside of the bra is made from 90 % polyester and 10 % elastane (exclusive of trims).
I love this bra. It is my new favorite bra to wear most days. The clips are very easy to clip and unclip one handed and quickly. 2 important features in a nursing bra. The back of the bra has 3 hooks for each setting. There are 6 different size options to get the perfect fit. I like how simple and elegant the bra is. The bows on the bra coordinate with the inside color of the cups. We have the wire free size, and I feel like it is really supportive and comfortable.
The matching Dark Toffee French Knickers are low rise, seam free and made from microfiber. The soft textured cut eliminates the worry of visible panty lines. The knickers have matching embellishments (the bows and print). The low cut is designed to fit under your growing belly during pregnancy. The knickers are also hand wash or wash in the lingerie bag.
