But when the 32-year-old Australian mother put on her activewear every morning, she noticed that none of her sports bra was breastfeeding.

& # 39; I thought I could not be the only mother in the world with this problem, so I intend to solve it & # 39 ;, she told Femail.

Without previous fashion design experience, Nikki was launched alongside her husband Adam Cadenshae, a line of sports bra & # 39; s, tops and tights & # 39; s that help mothers feed.

& # 39; We launched a range of sports bra & # 39; s and tops in April 2015 that would support both women during training and breastfeed, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; We now have a full range suitable for all mothers with 10 different types of sports bra for every activity level, medically approved leggings and different hoodies and tops that all ensure easy breastfeeding on the go. & # 39;

Knowing that there was nothing on the market, Nikki and Adam, who now have four children, drove all efforts behind the label – which has sold 100,000 copies since launch.

& # 39; Our Ultimate Bra was super revolutionary. There was just nothing on the market like it, & she said.

& # 39; When a mother is breastfeeding, she often has to take a cup size, but not necessarily a band size.

& # 39; Many of the crops from the & # 39; sport type & # 39; available, meant that mothers who were an E + cup had to get a larger size to an XL to get good coverage in the cups, meaning they were left with a bra or a crazy tick big under-bust, so lack of support.
