Nursing girls deserve proper fits and attention, too

December 27, 2013
Livi Rae Lingerie

Confession time. I used the same 2-3 nursing bras for all three of my girls. To say they have been worn and abused is a total understatement. I can’t even read the tags on them and have no idea what size they are. And, really, I doubt that my breasts were the same size every […]
