I've never done a Works for Me Wednesday before. But, I found a product that really works for me, and I just had to share it.

As my regular readers know, I have a 12-week-old little girl, and I breastfeed her. As my readers also know, I'm pretty well-endowed. So, when I'm nursing, I wear a size 36-K nursing bra. Yes, it's enormous. And it's really hard to get the support I need, even from a great nursing bra, when I'm so ... um ... blessed.

I kept seeing commercials for Strap Perfect, and I often wondered if it would give me support without making me look even more ... um ... blessed. So, I went out to the grocery store and got a box of six Strap Perfects for $10. First, let me say that they are not nearly as easy to put on as the commercial suggests (especially for someone so ... um ... blessed), and I even broke one trying to figure out how to attach it to my heavy load. But, once they were on - WOW! What a difference!

Here is a before shot (you'll have to excuse the self-portrait; I was home alone at the time):

And here is the after shot:

I can't speak for the advertised purpose of Strap Perfect, which is to provide versatility in strap location without buying all different kinds of bras; but, as you can see, there was a significant amount of lift and support. Nothing is as wonderful as my minimizer bras for lift and support, but they don't make nursing bras. Strap Perfect is as good as it gets for ... um ... blessed women who need a nursing bra. I no longer feel like I'm carrying around two canteloupes in tube socks. I love this product!

I'm gonna try this! I'm nursing my 3 month old and feel like my boobs are always at my belly button with so little support from the nursing bras (and I'm only a DD!). Thanks for the tip!

Welcome to WFMW! And thanks for the tip! I too am...blessed (30F) and struggle, too. I'll have to check those out!

I've seen these products and wondered if they worked. For me I'm not so blessed. In fact I may try putting cantalopes in my bra just to help fill out it out!:)

I laughed out loud at Kara's comment!

I'm glad you found something that works for you, Kare. I've been listening to complain about those "blessings" for more than ten years. :)

Oh, and I LOVE your bathroom tile!!! Is this the one Big Daddy re-did? It's beautiful!
