About Me

My photo
Admit it. Most nursing bras are kind of industrial-looking. At least that is what I thought when I was shopping around for a nursing bra. I also found that while breastfeeding is natural and wonderful, it is also difficult and complex and sometimes it really hurts! The best advice I could find was to use warm compresses before nursing and cold compresses afterwards. But nobody could give me any tips for how to make the whole compress thing practical or COMFORTABLE! So, my design was patented and Nizo Wear was born. I firgured while I was at it I should make them pretty as well. Nizo Wear makes nursing bras that are de both functional and pretty. Lace and rhinestones, playful prints, shapely lines, all designed to help you feel stylish and good again.

Amazing gift

Met with Lori from "Tied up with a Bow" today. Not only does this amazing lady offer personal shopping for the holiday season (perfect for those either to busy or not physically able to shop on their own) but she will

1. drive to your house (no additional charge here people!)
2. pick up your already purchased gifts,
3. and either wrap them there with you if you prefer or she will take them home and return to you in two days! (again, no additional charge)
4. She uses all of her own wrapping supplies (and I have seen first hand that she does an beautiful job!)
5. She will also ship them for people who are unable or simply want her to!

The best part, besides that she is completely affordable, you can give her as a gift to someone!!! It is the gift that keeps giving! To give a gift that is not only practical, but to give joy to someone who no longer can wrap and give their own gifts? PRICELESS. If you live in the Madison area consider using her services or giving her as a gift! I love it! tiedupwithabow@hotmail.com

Your milk is here-and you can't believe what it feels like! Here is how to explain it to your spouse.

It's like:

-An alien replaced your boobs with fourteen-pound explosive bowling balls.

-Truck tires that are dangerously overinflated.

-A wicked witch cast a spell on you that makes your boobs as solid as stone.

-You're wearing a superhero chest-plate of steel, and the villain is shooting lasers at it.

-There's a miniature army in your boobs and they are punching you from the inside.

-Your chest is the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead is pushing so hard, the dam is going to collapse in about two seconds.

-You went in to the hospital to give birth, but they accidentally gave you an enormous boob job.

If all this fails, relate it to him: It's like he woke up to find his testicles swollen to the size of grapefruits and as heavy as a pair of sandbags. (Oh yes, and burning like someone lit a bonfire inside of them.)

Thanks S. Seip & A. Hedger for giving us "If these BOOBS could talk" ! It is a much needed comic relief!

Tips on how to choose the right bra

Choosing the right bra is always a difficult process! Here are a few tips

-Make sure the band is snug. Your band is what provides you with support. You should only be able to fit one or two fingers between your back and the band.

-Buy a bra that fits on the last hook since bras will stretch over time and you will want to maintain the snug fit for maximum support and comfort.

-Department store bras only last three to six months; a better-quality bra will alst for a year or more and is worth the investment.

-Hand washing (with a lingerie detergent) and air-drying flat will extend the life of your undergarments. Bras should be washed every few wears as the oils in your skin break down the elasticity of the bra.

Thanks Modern Bliss for these great tips!

What was the thing that surprised you the most???

Think you can't live without an underwire?

I hear from some women that they just cant live without their underwire bra. Well, I get it. There are many poorly constructed bras out there that need an underwire to offer any support.

But when you are breastfeeding, wearing an underwire greatly increases your risk of getting a plugged milk duct.

Nizo Wear has designed a bra that offers gentle support without the underwire. Here is what store owner Tina Marie from Tina Marie's boutique in Algoma Wisconsin has heard from her customers about Nizo Wear's Solace style nursing bra.

"My underwire gals are just as excited about the non-underwire nursing bra (Solace) once they get it on! They can hardly believe how great they truly are!"
