We recommend a minimum of 3 nursing bras - one on, one in the wash and one available to wear as needed. It is common that your nursing bra will get wet from excess milk flow & hence a good set of nursing pads is always recommended.

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.

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.
When it comes to the best maternity bras and the best nursing bras, there are endless options. You’ve got everyday nursing bras, sleep nursing bras, nursing bras with molded cups, pumping bras and extra-supportive nursing bras specifically made for women with larger busts. Yes, the cup runneth over with choices, but how do you know which one is right for you? Read on for the best nursing bras and the best maternity bras, plus shopping tips from The Bump’s go-to nursing and style experts, so you can find the perfect fit.

• Support. Breasts filled with milk are fuller (and heavier), so you’ll want more support than you had before baby. A supportive nursing bra also prevents sagging breasts after baby graduates from breastfeeding. “The band under the bust should be snug,” says New York City stylist Samantha Brown, but make sure the straps don’t cut into your shoulders. “An ill-fitting bra can impact a woman’s posture, and lead to strain and tension headaches,” Brown says.

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.
As soon as your body starts showing the signs of pregnancy, your breasts are going to need all the support they can get. To give them a bit of well-deserved TLC, make sure you invest in a fitted maternity bra. Getting measured is a simple way of ensuring that you're fully supported and it's also easy to do – drop by a mothercare shop for a quick and helpful fitting. We recommend popping by at the four to five-week mark.

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
