Today I want to share with you an awesome company, Kindred Bravely.
Kindred Bravely is a company devoted to creating maternity and postpartum clothes that are effortlessly chic and beautiful, while still being comfy and practical.
Founded by Deeanne Akerson, who was sick of all of the impractical and often times, ugly, maternity wear (especially for breastfeeding moms). She set out to make a change, and Kindred Bravely was born. She wants moms to look and feel great all the time. I love how Deeanne describes her clothing line; “Our clothes have been meticulously designed to make your superhero journey easier.”
Our Team at Breastfeeding World leaped at the opportunity to collaborate with Kindred Bravely to pull of the most epic Big Latch On Events in NYC, Times Square, Central Indiana, and Martha’s Vineyard.

As a mom to an eight month old boy, I understand how difficult it is to find the “perfect” nursing bra or an adorable nursing set that you feel comfortable flaunting around the house in front of close friends and family. The struggle is real…well, until I found about out KB.
To test out some of the products first hand, Kindred Bravely sent me two nursing bras and two pajama sets- one was with long pants and the other shorts.
When it comes to bras, I never seem to get it right. I find that every bra fits differently. I feel like every bra is a different size, in every new bra style that I choose from. Does this ever happen to you too? When KB asked me what size to send me, I was a little hesitant that yet again, they wouldn’t fit me right or be uncomfortable. Man, was I pleasantly surprised. When I received my package in the mail, I instantly ran over to grab my phone to do an ‘insta-unpackaging story’ -because obviously everyone on my Instagram had to know about this 😉
The first thing that grabbed my attention when I opened the pack of bras, was the feeling of the fabric.
I have never owned a bra that felt that soft. Kindred Bravely Sent me the Simply Sublime Nursing Bra in beige and the Marvella Nursing Plunge “T-Shirt” Bra in black. Now, you may think that what I am about to say is just ‘a way to get you to buy these products’ – truth be told, it is not. I put on the Marvella Bra first and instantly shouted out loud,
“OMG finalllllly!!! This bra is amazzzzing!”
My husband looked at me like I had two heads. I kid you not, I did a little dance around our living room. I had never experienced a bra like this. Usually bras are so uncomfortable for me or like I said, never fit, but this bra was magical. It fit PERFECT!
Since I received both bras, I haven’t worn any other. They fit great, are super comfortable and convenient for nursing mamas- being that the straps snap off for easy access. You can tell right away that KB made both bras with high quality fabrics.The soft and stretchy nylon makes them feel almost like you aren’t even wearing a bra at all!
The Marvella bra has a criss-cross back.
I love its wire-free design and how comfortable it feels on my chest. After trying on this bra, I now realize that I am willing to pay a little more to get the better quality. This bra offers great support and is very appealing to the eye. The Marvella sells for $39 and comes in a variety of colors.
In comparison, the sublime bra is a great everyday bra to wear to work.
It is comfortable as well as supportive. This bra sells for $29 on their Site. It’s Designed to fit multiple cup sizes, which is great for fluctuation in size when breastfeeding. Kindred Bravely offers six other bra options as well, so be sure to check them all out here.
The ladies at Kindred Bravely were kind enough to send me two pajamas sets to try out as well.
I have slept in them every night since they arrived two weeks ago. They are probably the softest pajamas I have ever owned. Now I feel spoiled! The pant set that I received came in long pants and shorts. The shorts are perfect for summer and the top is silky smooth on my skin. They are also super cute and I would be totally comfortable wearing them around friends & family. The material for these pajamas are super stretchy which is great for pregnant mamas. I wish I had these pajamas when I was pregnant- perfect for a growing belly!
Overall, I have to brag at how happy I am with these amazing Kindred Bravely’s products. The bras are by far the best bras I have ever worn. They have gained a lifetime customer through me!
I want to take a final moment to thank everyone at Kindred Bravely for sponsoring Breastfeeding World’s Big Latch On events, and being behind our mission and values. We wouldn’t be where we are without you!
I am a first time momma to Landon and I am loving every sweet moment that passes by with him. I work full-time as a Registered Nurse, so I know how important and beneficial breastfeeding is for your baby. On my free time, I am a writer, avid photo taker and cook. As a contributor for Breastfeeding World, my goal is to encourage and inspire other new moms as they start on their own personal journeys through motherhood and breastfeeding. We are all in this together!
