• 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.
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
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.
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.
