Figuring out where to start shopping when you find out you are pregnat can be daunting. There is a lot of stuff a baby needs but there is actually quite a few things a mom needs too and that is a good bra. There are many different styles of nursing bras and I’m here to help you figure out when to where what. Our bodies go through a lot of changes and we need to acknowledge it. There is a subtle change in our breasts at first and once the baby comes there are a lot of changes. I am so happy to be writing this post for you guys. I was lucky to have my very knowledgeable sister help me during this process and I learned a few things myself along the way too. Here is the 101 on nursing bras, what’s out there and why you should have it.
Let’s start with the sleep bras. I choose to sleep in these bras because they are seamless and very lightweight, I have the black and the purple. I do occasionally wear these out of the house, I should say I accidentally wear these out of the house, but since they are lightweight they aren’t ideal for every day wear. I had these seamless bras sent to me and they are very similar to the Target ones but run a little big which was great for when my milk first came in.
If you are an active mother you will need a maternity sports bra. I am always rushing to feed my baby after a workout and taking off a sweaty sports bra is not easy. Working out in a supportive nursing sports bra is very convenient. I have one that has more support that I like to run in and I have 2 medium support ones that are perfect for weight training, yoga and barre workouts. These are the ones I have and I absolutely love them. The padding can sometimes get twisted when you pull the clip down to nurse but I tend to leak often and I love the extra padding these bras have. While looking at nursing bras online I found this yoga sports bra which seems similar to the ones I already have, I definitely want to try this one.
I was late to the game on an everyday basic nursing bra but my cousin had one from Target that I ended up purchasing for myself . It has a pretty low cut which is perfect for clothing with a deep v-neck or if you are going somewhere and need to dress more on the conservative side. It is no longer available online but I found this one that is very similar.
Cosabella also has two other nursing bras that I haven’t tried. The Talco nursing bra which has a deep V and looks perfect for that everyday basic bra and the Trenta nursing bra which has a v neck but also some lace.
Thank you Cosabella for these fabulous bras!
