• 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.

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.
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.
• 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.
