Hotmilk nursing bras are not only stylish – but are both functional and comfortable! Our bras come with one handed maternity clips allowing for ease of breastfeeding, 100% cotton lining (allowing the bra that contacts your body to be comfortable and great against sensitive skin), and great support. Seam friendly cups offer the ultimate in comfort and support, but without any compromise on sophistication or style. Breastfeeding bras have 6 hooks at the back allowing you to extend the bra out with your pregnancy and clip back closer after you have given birth. Hotmilk follows global recommendations that a nursing bra should not have hard metal wires, we either use no wires at all, or flexi-wires allowing the bra to move with your body.
Bravado Designs Body Silk Seamless Yoga Maternity/Nursing Bra is wire-free and has wide straps and a generous under-bust band. (The plus size nursing bras can accommodate up to a 44DDD cup size.) Whether you’re easing back into exercise with gentle yoga or jumping right into your pre-pregnancy running routine, this nursing bra provides support that feels just right.
La Leche League Convertible Strapless Nursing Bra slips under a strapless dress, halter or strappy tank for instant—but gentle—support. Clear straps are included, should you want a little more lift, and the frame itself is built so it can be easily flipped up for nursing. If you want a little more wiggle room, plus size maternity bras are available up to size XL, which accommodates a size 38 band.
• 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.
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.
