How to Choose The Best Nursing Bra?

maternity braYou’ve just brought a new bundle of joy into the world and realized you don’t know the first thing about picking out a nursing bra. Unfortunately, all those maternity bras you purchased during your pregnancy will be of little help to you once you start nursing. Luckily, there is a lot of great options available for new mommies.

If you haven’t discovered it yet, once you begin nursing, a good quality bra for breastfeeding will be your new best friend. This specialized bra usually offers additional features for extra support, such as wide straps, extra clasps, leak guards and super soft fabric choices. In addition, its main feature is, of course, the extra removable panel which makes feeding your little one quick and simple.

When it comes to picking out the best nursing bra, take into consideration what sort of additional features you desire from your bra. Some breastfeeding bras offer underwires while others simply stick with “soft cups.” “Sleep bras” or “lounging” bras are available as well as tank top style bras. As far as pure comfort, these may be the way to go. If you’re looking for straight up durability and utility, try “Leading Lady.” This bra is all about easy access and soft cup comfort. Missing your days of pre-pregnancy lacy lingerie? Check out “Nummies Fashion Bras” or the Allure bra from “Bravado”. Both brands offer styles that can make any mommy feel gorgeous and sexy, even if it is a bra for nursing. Both of these brands offer comfort, support and are made with cute, girly lace.

Like regular bras, every woman will have her own favorite one, depending on her particular body. That being said, there does seem to be an overwhelmingly large consensus by breastfeeding mommies that the “Bravado” brand is definitely worth checking out. Comfortable, affordable, and available in a wide range of styles and sizes, including plus sizes, this brand seems to be a definite winner according to most nursing mommies.

For the majority of women, both during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, their breasts increase in size. Although you may be able to get away with simply picking out a larger cup size than you normally would, you make also need to check out the plus size nursing bra selection. Good rule of thumb: if your bra is leaving dent marks on your skin or pinching you in places, then it’s probably time to try a size up.
