4 Nursing Bras Every Breastfeeding Mom Needs
Courtney here! I had baby #2 this in April and I’ve been so excited to try some new nursing bras. These bras have been tried, tested, worn, washed, and used. They've pretty much been through the ringer! I’ve compiled my favorite nursing bras every breastfeeding mom needs in her drawer and I can’t wait to share them with you. Plus, all of these bras come in a wide range of sizes. Hallelujah!
Transition Nursing Bra / Sleep Bra
These wireless bras are perfect to wear until your milk regulates. It's a must-have in your hospital go bag. The sizing is generous and the fabric is incredibly soft. They're so comfortable, they can be worn as sleep bras or just lounging throughout the day. Here are my favorites:
Molded Spacer Foam
Molded cups are perfect to wear under just about anything. No seams means nothing to show through tops. Spacer foam is great for nursing bras because they don't hold creases created by unlatching and lowering the cup. In addition, it's breathable, perfect for those in warmer climates. They come in both wired and wireless options. Two of my favorite spacer foam nursing bras are below:
Anita Miss Anita (wireless)
Panache Eleanor (wired)
A good wireless nursing bra offers both comfort and support. Soft, contoured cups offer a rounded shape under clothing. We don't recommend sleeping in underwire nursing bras, so these are perfect from going to day to night without a thought. Wireless nursing bras have a high spandex content, keeping things comfortably contained without quickly stretching out. Below are some of my suggested wireless:
Cut & Sewn Nursing
Underwire cut and sewn (seamed) bras give the ultimate lift, which can be extremely beneficial for heavy nursing breasts. Underwire bras are safe and comfortable to wear while nursing as long as they are the correct fit. The goal is to have each breast encased in the underwire for comfortable support. Cut and sewn bras can be viewed as sexier as well, which can add a confidence boost for new mothers! A couple of favorites are below:
