• Comfort. This should be at the top of your nursing bra must list during the first four to six weeks after having baby, says Stephanie Nguyen, founder of Modern Milk and a certified lactation consultant. She recommends stretchy nursing bras to accommodate the breast changes mom experiences during this time. “Look for nursing bras in soft fabrics,” Nguyen says. You'll also want to pick a maternity bra with thick back closures that have four or more hooks; wide, cushioned straps and a band that doesn't ride up in the back.
The features of a good nursing bra include, additional support for your fuller bust which can be approximately 35% heavier, side support to avoid flattening of the bust which can lead to ligament damage, non-restrictive, a wider set frame to avoid pressure on the milk ducts, cotton lining for comfort and breathability, six hooks and eyes for room to reduce as your rib cage contracts & one hand drop down clips for easy nursing.
Real mom review: “I bought this bra because I had a number of cute maternity dresses that needed a strapless bra, and at 25 weeks I cannot bear to wear underwire anymore, but there is no way I can go braless. This bra is so comfortable, offers great coverage, and has decent enough lift where I don't feel like I look sloppy. I bought two, and I may buy more after the baby as well because I just love it that much.” —Sarah via Motherhood Maternity
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.

Noppies' range of maternity lingerie includes various maternity bras. Choose from a maternity bra with secure, flexible clips, padded nursing bra with nursing clips, maternity bras with wide straps for extra support and bras that will grow with your changing shape. They offer support and are made of soft materials that provide a comfortable fit. Every pregnancy bra can be matched up with pants, shorts or a thong. Make endless combinations with Noppies maternity bras.
As with all bras, finding the right fit can be a challenge. It is the same process as with standard bras, the band under your bust should sit flat across your back not riding upwards. Avoiding any cutting in on your breast tissue is important. Bras which are too tight can restrict the flow and amount of milk produced – so it is important to change to to a Maternity/Nursing bra after you feel like your non-maternity bras are uncomfortable and no longer fitting or offering the right support. You may find your cup sizes change as your pregnancy progresses, every pregnancy and woman is different, however you may find you need to go up 3-4 cup sizes and increase your band size as your baby grows. Further changes can occur during the nursing cycle, when your milk flow comes in you may increase in the cup size before your bust size settles again. This great video can help you check if you have the right size.
