Belle Lait: beautiful feeding bras for the modern mom

Belle Lait

I’ve written about extensively about breast milk and my breastfeeding journey over the last few weeks, but what you don’t know is that up until a few days ago, I was wearing nothing remotely close to beautiful feeding bras. Instead, I wore shady sports bras which I bought while I was pregnant, because they were stretchy and offered comfort when my nips were violently sensitive. The reason I’m not in thaaat situation anymore is because I met two dynamic moms and businesswomen who were tired of the same struggles.

Nobuhle and Nyasha are young mothers looking to make an impact on maternity fashion, specifically feeding bras. Inspired by the lack of sensual feeding bras for the modern mom on the South African market, the idea of Bella Lait as conceived. Belle Lait means “Beautiful milk” – two words that strongly resonate with me, through the ups and downs I’ve experienced in my breastfeeding journey. Belle Lait was born out of the need by new and expecting mothers to maintain their beauty and good looks during a period where they are experiencing a lot of change.


The main reason that I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on feeding bras is that they’re not of much use AFTER you stop nursing and it turns out I’m not the only one with that concern and the ladies have us covered, literally. The Belle Lait bras can be used before, during and after pregnancy. The sizes currently range from 32B-38DD and they are looking to go up to 40E in the next few weeks. Their online store has a size chart, where they indicate whether or not it is “true to size” or not, because there is nothing worse than an ill-fitting bra right?

  1. I LOVE it. And I love the fact that they also run small. It’s been very hard finding pretty nursing bras specially in my size 32B. Certain companies seem to forget that even smaller breasts produce milk. Thanks for this!

  2. Oh my gosh Thando!! I wish I knew about these during my nursing days 🙁 🙁 I searched high and low but could find nothing decent. These are really awesome. Great work to the founders!
