Cake Lingerie Sorbet nursing bra and panty set Review and Giveaway: 3/18-25. Prize valued at over US$110 – and the contest is open internationally!
We all know Cake Lingerie as the manufacturer of the really gorgeous nursing bras. The ones with details and pretty lace… The ones we *should* buy for ourselves but often don’t….
Cake Founder, Tracey Montford, began her business when she couldn’t find well made, feminine, functional lingerie for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Just like Bamboobies, Cake was started by one mother who was frustrated at the lack of good options for other nursing mothers and decided to change things. Tracey went to fashion school, spent years looking for the best manufacturers and insisted on quality. That’s why Cake Lingerie is famous: it’s mom-inspired and designed, high quality solutions speak to other new mothers in a way no large corporate company can. Cake’s bras are legendary because they’re great – and gorgeous.
Tracey got in touch when they launched their new line for larger-breasted women – I agreed to do a review because it’s a great fit – literally and figuratively! (Yes – I received a free bra set but was not paid to write this review.
The Sorbet bra is uniquely designed for the fuller busted women. The Cake ladies have gone out of their way to use special fabrications, elastics, trimming and design features, to produce a superior unique product, which has not been seen in the market before now! Especially for those of us with larger breasts.
This isn’t your typical big bra – it’s gorgeous and really does it’s job! I only have a couple of bras these days that still make my boobies look great in a t-shirt. Trouble is, they feel awful. I can’t get through dinner without adjusting and complaining to myself about the things I do to try to look good! When I put the new Sorbet Cake bra on, it felt great…. Then I put my shirt on and was amazed at how good it made me look too!
The Sorbet collection is made in 2 pretty color combinations: Apricot/nude Payday Loans and Lavender/Navy. I tried the Lavender/Navy – great for wearing under dark colors and very pretty. Both bras have matching panties available as well.
The bra alone is a new-mama must-have. Together with the panties they make a very cute set and a great idea for a baby shower, an upcoming birthday/Mother’s Day present! The came wrapped in a gorgeous box that made me feel so special. (That sounds corny but I’m serious!)
Send this link to your husband/mother/etc if you don’t win – you’re going to love this bra!
Note: It is called a maternity bra online but it’s a great nursing bra. It has the nursing clasps fyi. Also – the model in the picture doesn’t look like a ‘plus-size’ in my mind but know that the sizing is great, I’m larger than average and it fits and supports me wonderfully.

Worried about sizing? I found my bra and panties were very true to size and my expectations… But – Our sizes change so much over the course of pregnancy and nursing – bras seem like the last thing we’d order online, right!? Cake has several neat tools on their site that help with finding the right size yourself and ordering online – check them out: http://www.cakelingerie.com/fitting/
