Cake Lingerie recommends your nursing bras be purchased about a month or so prior to your baby being born. Cake suggests a seamless nursing bras to start (about the 1st month), as your bust will fluctuate wildly as your body tries to regulate its flow of milk. Typically sized XS-XXL, they will accommodate your changing bust. The soft-cup or t-shirt bras, with or without flexible wire will be ideally suited about 4-6 weeks post birth when your bust fluctuations have somewhat stabilised. The Cake Nursing bras are ideal post birth, with each one fulfilling a specific purpose.

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.
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.
