Katherine x Bodily: Black
The Back At It Bra: Katherine x Bodily
Stage 2 bra collab with Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt offers mid-support and clip-down nursing access
By month three of postpartum, you may finally be ready to get back to feeling more like you – this bra was designed to meet you perfectly in that moment and beyond.
Bodily is joining forces with Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, our Chief Bodily Advocate, to introduce The Katherine x Bodily Bra.
This style was inspired by Katherine as she was entering Stage 2 of breastfeeding and starting to uncover the things that felt like getting back to her – reconnecting with her old self, finding her new self, and embracing both. We wanted to design a bra to perfectly match that moment and those feelings, while continuing to be her go-to for all of the months thereafter.
The Back At It Bra features one-handed clip-down nursing functionality, introduces light support, and provides a chic, easy-to-wear shape that looks and feels great under clothes. Crafted from a buttery-smooth, non-toxic fabric, this bra features a wide underbust band and our signature five-row extended back closure to flex with your body through transitions without creating points of constriction.
Like Katherine's platform, BDA Baby (which stands for Before, During, and After Baby), this Stage 2-optimized style was designed to support you as you get back at it.
- A soft V-neckline with balanced coverage and a smooth material that looks great under clothes.
When can I wear a Stage 2 bra?
Perfect for all-day wear in pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, Stage 2, Stage 3, and every day after. You can also wear for shorter windows (under 3 hours) in Stage 1. Designed with an IBCLC to optimize breast health in these times.
Why aren't pads included in a Stage 2 bra?
In Stage 2, we don’t recommend fixed or structured padding. During this time, the risk of experiencing common breastfeeding ailments is slightly reduced, but not completely gone. If you are looking for coverage that padding provides, we highly recommend utilizing solutions like nursing pads. Our Low Profile Breast Pads were designed exactly for this – because they’re not fixed against your breast, they provide mobility that is necessary when experiencing engorgement.
This grosgrain strap is designed to look minimal, but like all of our bras, we increase the width for sizes L-XL sizes, ensuring additional support without digging into skin for a range of body shapes.
