I have a highly fashionable friend who recently gave birth, who is dealing with being a new mom like a superhero but is really struggling with the loss of her former style. Like many new moms, she feels trapped in her cheap and ugly stretch clothing but also unable to move on from it (she says she’s changing her shirt at least three times a day at this point due to the baby). She wants to feel functional and glamorous, and the loss of her personal style has hit her hard.
I always tell people that I believe that no one deserves ugly underwear, but sometimes we have to live in functional underwear due to our circumstances. Luckily, there are lots of nice minimalist maternity options these days that are both functional and still let you retain a sense of personal style. The Next to Nothing Micro Wireless Nursing Bra by On Gossamer is a really good entry in this category.
Sizing runs from 32B to 38DD and the bra comes in both champagne and black. The look is sleek and simple, using featherlight microfiber to create support and fit flexibility for women who are nursing. Easy to use nursing clips complete the look, making this bra easy to use and comfortable to wear. Unlike many nursing bras, this one has fashionably skinny straps and light elastic, so you don’t feel like you’re wearing your grandmother’s nursing bra.
This wire free nursing bra is a great basic that won’t make you feel like you’ve become someone you don’t recognize.
Some days, you want what is the tried and true. It’s easy to get seduced by fancy laces and embroidered details, but what most women tend to reach for on a regular basis are the most comfortable basics. On Gossamer’s latest additions to their ‘Next To Nothing’ line add more lightweight 4 way stretch, microfiber options to layer up with on days where you feel like wearing nothing. It’s a perfect example of the old adage “Less is more”.
The Next To Nothing Micro Wireless Bra features narrow straps and a lightweight microfiber that feels weightless on. It comes in both Black and Champagne and ranges from 30A to 36D in size. It’s a great choice for a wire-free t-shirt bra that can be worn every day.
Bodysuits make great layering pieces, so it’s nice to see the Next to Nothing Micro Bodysuit being added to the line in both Black and Champagne. This bodysuit makes great lingerie or layering piece, as well as an easy alternative to a camisole. Sizing runs from XS to L. Kudos to this heritage brand of clean, cool intimates!
An On Gossamer favorite: the Beautifully Basic Lace plunge bra is this month’s intimate highlight. Part of the On Gossamer entourage of weightless, light as air lingerie, the brand’s legacy, this particular style fits sizes 30-38, A-D cups. Microfiber lightly padded cups provide a seamless lift. The sweeping neckline with the high apex center is also appreciated by petite women and women with shorter torsos. A clean, modern front is offset by stretch lace wings and straps, adding a touch of delicate glamour to a modern everyday basic. Transforming into a racer back bra with the j-hook attachment, the Beautiful Basic Lace Plunge bra is perfect for backless and one shoulder fashions. Lauded for its amazing comfort, it is a brand best seller, season after season.
