Finding a frazzled looking mom in the search of a right nursing bra might not come across as an unusual sight. As your body preps up for your breastfeeding journey, so should you to provide the required support that your breasts demand (and rightly so!!).
Some women wonder about the difference between maternity and nursing bra styles and whether or not they need both. The primary difference is that nursing bras come with special openings for quick, easy breastfeeding accessibility. It’s also important to consider how your needs may change during the postpartum period. In the early months, you’ll likely be doing a lot of lounging around the house so you’ll want a soft, smooth, stretchy material, with flexible sizing and quick access to the breast. Later, as you start venturing out more, you’ll want a more structured bra that looks good beneath your clothing with contoured cups, additional strap support, and sexier styling.
Now that you know the difference between the types, we recommend not to wait for discomfort to settle in and create demand. Take your time to consider how a perfect fitting nursing bra will fit with your lifestyle. A good nursing bra is more than just “a bra without underwire (as underwire bras are controversial for many reasons for a long time now).” The best postpartum bras are made from soft, stretchy, non-abrasive materials, with easy one-handed access for breastfeeding.
To help you find the best bra, we’ve compiled these tips for choosing the right bra—based on three most common mistakes moms often make.
1. Shopping Too Soon
It’s impossible to predict how your breasts will respond to pregnancy and milk supply for every woman (and every pregnancy) is different in their own unique way. Some moms don’t have much of a change in cup size while others may notice an increase of four cup sizes. Many experts agree that the most accurate time to size yourself for a structured nursing bra is three to four months after your delivery, which gives you ample time to establish and regulate your milk supply. The best time to measure is midday, when the breasts are full, right before a feeding session.
If you want to purchase nursing bras before you deliver, try to wait until you’re around eight months pregnant. By then you will have gained most of your baby weight and undergone most of your major body shape changes. The size your breasts are at eight months should be fairly close to what size you’ll be eight weeks post-birth when your body has learned to regulate its milk supply.
Just as there are different dresses for different occasions, you will find different styles of nursing bras to suit your needs. For some women, one really high-quality nursing bra could do the trick for sleeping, lounging, and going out. For most women, having several different bras and styles makes this period of life much more comfortable.
