Maternity and nursing bras and tanks designer Bravado Designs is celebrating its first customers 20 years ago, as well as the next generation of new moms to come, by conducting a BravadoMama Model Search and Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and I are the judges selecting the twenty finalists alongside Bravado!
