You would think that HOT MILK sell nursing bras wouldn't you?

I've only gone and bought a bloody maternity bra angry. What's the point in maternity bras, why not just make them all nursing bras!

Can't send it back 'due to hygiene reasons'. Haven't tried it on yet but it is probably too big for me still, and I wanted a nice bloody nursing bra! Wah! What a waste!

I got it on Brandalley (so fortunately it was only a tenner - but still...) but now they are not on sale I can't see them on the site so I can't see whether it was sold as a nursing bra. ut on at least one other website it calls it a maternity nursing bra, and on a another it says 'for maternity and beyond'.

Feckers! The company is called HOT MILK!

Sorry, am irrationally angry. In fact just bloody irrational at the moment.

What size are you?

I'm not perving I promise just I have 3, 2 never worn that I'm happy to share.

Bumperliouzzzzzz Mon 19-Apr-10 21:34:44

Oh how lovely of you to offer, thanks. I don't know what size I am. haven't been measured since being pg (just wearing my old ones and hoping for the best!) and all my nursing bras are different sizes! But the one I ordered (which was again 'hope for the best') is 36DD. Some of mine are 34C though.

LOL at not perving grin

monkeysmama Mon 19-Apr-10 21:37:34

They're too big then. But pleeeaassee get measured. Seriously, it's the bestt weight loss, morale boost I've had. I looked a stone lighter when I started wearing the tight size nursing bra and felt so much comfier.

Bumperliouzzzzzz Mon 19-Apr-10 21:41:18

Thanks for the offer anyway

I'm ok for the minute (only 18 weeks) but I know what you mean about getting fitted properly. When my milk had settled down I went to a decent place (not just M&S) and got a lovely bra which made a lot of difference. I'll get measured next time I'm in town.

monkeysmama what size are you trying to sell? I've just bought another one online for £24! Royce as I have big norks ;( but if yours are the right size I'd buy the unworn ones ;0)

Bumper - cut the nursing clips off a tatty old nursing bra and convert your new one?

chipmonkey Mon 19-Apr-10 22:09:59

That's strange. All the bras I bought from Hotmilk had nursing clips and I don't think I was particularly careful about making sure they had them.

honeydragon Mon 19-Apr-10 22:36:32

Phone them direct and tell them they are rubbish - I've taken maternity tops back to mothercare before on the basis that they are not nursing so don't put them near the nursing tops in store!!!!!!

I also point out that if they can't make shopping ridiculously easy then they should not be selling to harried mothers - I think the same advice goes for hot milk - I too would assume that all hot milk bras would be for nursing.

Hot milk DO sell nursing bras (just not in my size sad)

here you go smile

You are allowed to be irrational wink

You can send things back if they are faulty, and I think you should send it back on the basis that you expect it to have nursing clips in. You can email the company here so maybe you could check whether it was meant to have nursing clips or not?

Are you sure you can't return for a refund? I've bought plenty of nursing bras online that I've returned when I've found out that they don't fit... That was with Mothercare, JoJoMamanBebe and Blooming Marvellous. I don't know who you bought it through, but i'd double check the refund policy.

If you're within 7 working days of delivery, you can also reject the item under the distance selling regulations.

I think when you buy things remotely you might be entitled to a refund anyway. Have a look for the Distance Selling Regulations (or put a shout out somewhere on here for someone who knows about them).

Bumperliouzzzzzz Tue 20-Apr-10 21:20:17

Thanks all. Have emailed BrandAlley but it came with a note saying no refunds for lingerie. I didn't even think to check, I assumed they were all nursing bras. It's called Hot Milk FFS!

SirBoobAlot Tue 20-Apr-10 21:36:47

Monkeys could I ask how much you're selling yours for? Two of mine have broken this week hmm

monkeysmama Tue 20-Apr-10 22:49:08

I am giving two away for free as someone gave them to me but they were too big so are unworn. Need to check but think they're 36e. I'd like them to go to someone who needs them rather than someone who wouldn't think twice about paying Hot Milk prices (I am not means testing obv grin)

SirBoobAlot Tue 20-Apr-10 22:56:24

* clears throat *

I am a disabled teen mother (19 next month), with M.E. and BPD, living off my DLA with my five month old DS in my bedroom at my parents house. Would that do? grin

In seriousness though - if you can't find anyone else to send them to I would really appreciate it, and would be more than happy to pack postage at least.

largeginandtonic Tue 20-Apr-10 23:05:05

Oooh i LOVE my Hot Milk nursing bras. I am so relieved i didn't sell them on after the last baby.

It made me very happy to think of them still in my drawer for feeding this baby.

Try again, they are worth it.

Irrational behaviour entirely appropriate grin

Wotcha Bumper.

monkeysmama Tue 20-Apr-10 23:33:34

What size are you Boob?

butterscotch Wed 21-Apr-10 07:36:43

Too small for me :-( thanks

confusedfirsttimemum Wed 21-Apr-10 13:23:56

Bumper _ I've just had a look online and I think you've got 7 days to demand a refund, even if they claim there are no returns. Found it here

vix206 Wed 21-Apr-10 17:52:38

Bumper, I own and run a lingerie business in the UK and I can tell you that by law every UK website has to accept returns within 7 days, it is your right as a consumer. They may say no, but they are breaking the law and I am sure if you quote the DSR's as linked to below by a PP they will back down. Makes me so mad when companies try and do this!

SirBoobAlot Wed 21-Apr-10 20:21:45

36/8 E/F depending on style. Am still amazed whenever I type that - my back used to be a 32 pre-pregnancy shock

Just found this on google so sorry for bumping a zombie thread.

Wish I had seen this as I've just done exactly the same thing. Bought a hot milk bra from Zulily and turns out its not a nursing bra. I'm so pissed off as was really excited to have a nice, pretty nursing bra to replace the manky ones that I'm currently wearing which are 3 years old.

Even worse I've sent it straight back but then just seen that zulily don't allow you to return bras. Not sure what happens now, will they send it back to me?

Did anyone else order one of these? I'd like to know what the original listing said as im sure it wasn't clear that it wasn't a nursing bra. Why would you make a range called hot milk anyway if it wasn't nursing bra's? angry
