When it comes to choosing the right nursing bra for you, keep in mind that during and after pregnancy, your
breasts will go through many changes. While they are enlarging, they are also getting heavier and becoming
more sensitive. Finding a comfortable, properly supportive nursing bra is absolutely necessary.
Nursing bras are designed with convenient flaps on the cups, or drop cups, that will open up for easy access
to nurse your baby while the rest of the bra stays in place. You will want to have a bra that supports your
breast from beneath even when the cup is open.
Breathability is imperative! You will want the cups of the bra to be made out a breathable fabric. It will usually
be 100% cotton, although there are some newer synthetic fabrics that allow the skin to breathe.
Taking measurements for a nursing bra is a little different from your regular bras. For the band size, you will
need to measure around your body, just under your arms. If the measurement is an uneven number just round
up to the next even number. In determining the cup size you will need to take a measurement of the bust,
make sure that you are measuring at the fullest part of your bust and that the measuring tape is level and lies
flat against your back. Trying on the bra with the help of a certified or professional bra fitter will get you into
the right size and style that suits you best.
