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.

• 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.
La Leche League Convertible Strapless Nursing Bra slips under a strapless dress, halter or strappy tank for instant—but gentle—support.

If you want a little more wiggle room, plus size maternity bras are available up to size XL, which accommodates a size 38 band.
• 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.

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.
