Nursing Bras

A nursing bra, custom-made for breastfeeding mothers, has a unique feature that allows you to open the cup with one hand. This allows you to comfortably breastfeed without having to take off your entire bra. In addition to this special feature, a nursing bra offers superior comfort and perfect support compared to a regular bra.

When should you wear a nursing bra?

The ideal time to switch to a nursing bra varies from woman to woman, as each pregnancy is unique. However, it is generally recommended to wear a nursing bra as soon as you notice that your regular bras become uncomfortable and your breasts start to grow – a common early sign of pregnancy. Nursing bras have a flexible size to accommodate breast growth during pregnancy. After giving birth, they become an essential part of a new mother's life. The easy-to-open mechanism of nursing bras, in particular, makes breastfeeding easy, anytime and anywhere.

What is the difference between a nursing bra and a regular bra?

A nursing bra differs from a regular bra due to the unique features tailored for breastfeeding mothers. While a regular bra is designed to provide support and shape, a nursing bra is designed with the changing shape and size of a woman's breasts during pregnancy and after childbirth in mind. Typically, nursing bras have a larger and more flexible cup size to accommodate this growth. Additionally, a nursing bra provides exceptional support to accommodate the larger breast size and increased sensitivity. The straps are wider to distribute the weight more evenly and reduce strain on your shoulders. The band around the ribcage is also wider for added comfort and support.

Should you wear a nursing bra at night?

A nursing bra can also be a valuable companion at night, especially for new mothers. Many mothers find that their milk supply does not follow a fixed schedule, so nighttime breastfeeding is common. Wearing a nursing bra provides easy and quick access for those surprise nighttime feedings, making the process much smoother. Furthermore, nursing bras are designed to offer excellent support for the increased size and weight of your breasts during this period. This means that wearing a nursing bra at night can help reduce discomfort from fullness and keep breast pads in place to absorb any potential milk leakage.
