Wearing a pregnancy bra is all about taking the weight off your shoulders – quite literally. Maternity bras have adjustable four-hook fastenings, giving you more support than a regular bra. The straps are thicker and include padding to help support your growing bust and prevent rubbing. They’re also made from breathable fabrics like cotton to help keep you comfortable while your body temperature rises. If you find yourself feeling a little warmer than usual (carrying a little one can have that effect), we also have bra liners to help wick away any under-band moisture. We have even more helpful information about buying maternity bras in our online guide.
What makes for the “best” nursing bras? Simple, Nguyen says: “If it fits, if it’s comfortable, if it’s easy to nurse in and you like the style.” No matter what you decide are the best nursing bras for you, Brown suggests picking up two nursing bras for daily wear (so you’ll always have one on hand when the other is in the wash) and one to sleep in. Keep in mind, Brown adds, “It's not unusual to change bra sizes within the first few weeks of breastfeeding”—so, if you’re shopping before baby arrives, consider buying one or two sizes larger than usual, so you have one ready to wear after birth.
During weeks 1 to 17 of your pregnancy, it’s important you choose a non-wired bra to leave room for your growing milk ducts. We have many supportive styles to choose from, including multipacks to keep you well-stocked. By weeks 18 to 28, you might find that a sleeping bra is necessary to keep you comfy at night – you are now snoozing for two, after all.
Generally, you should buy maternity clothes in your pre-pregnancy size. As maternity clothing provides extra room around the belly and bust, it gives you the comfort you need for your changing body. If you're in between sizes or are still unsure of what size to buy, consult our maternity wear sizing chart. Take measurements around the fullest part of your bust, your hips (under your bump), and your bump circumference, and compare these numbers to the sizing chart to find your ideal fit.
