Nursing Bras For During and After Your Pregnancy

In today's tough economic times, investing in maternity clothes may seem more like a luxury than a necessity. However, there are a few items that you just can't do without, like maternity and nursing bras.

Not only is your bust size increasing in early pregnancy, your breasts are more tender and sensitive as they change in consistency and enlarge for nursing. You will find your pre-pregnancy bras quickly become too constricting and can cause extreme discomfort and even clogged ducts during pregnancy. Finding the right bra in the right size is not a luxury but a health issue.

The best way to stretch your dollar when shopping for maternity bras is to invest in nursing bras when you are pregnant. Even though your bust size is subject to change throughout pregnancy and nursing, you are better off buying nursing bras that you can use again when you are nursing. Although your bust size may be bigger the first month or two after you have your baby, you will probably subside in size by your third month when your hormone levels have adjusted. Also, you will slowly return to your pre-pregnancy size during the weaning process later on.

When nursing, you will need at least 4-5 bras at any one time unless you have time to do the wash everyday. Also, it is nice to have a variety in nursing bra types in terms of support and fit. Many larger busted women find it more comfortable to wear a light support nursing sleep bra that they can also wear for loungewear in the daytime. Majamas Easy Bra is an excellent choice for a sleep bra with easy pull down nursing access. There are no clips or snaps to worry about in the middle or the night, so it is easy to nurse your baby in the dark. The Easy Bra is a simple pull over your head to wear bra without any back hooks which make sleeping on your back more comfortable as well.

When shopping for nursing bras, it is a good idea to buy a style which can stretch several cup sizes for maximum wear. Bravado's Original Nursing Bra is an excellent first nursing bra as it can comfortably accommodate your changing bust size. The Original Nursing Bra comes in a range of band and cup sizes such as the Basic, Plus and Double Plus. Each of these styles comes in a Small-XL and each specific size fits several band and cup sizes. The Basic and Plus Styles for the Original Nursing Bra are both cross-over styles that can be simply pulled down to nurse or unsnapped on each side. The Double Plus is made to accommodate larger cup sizes and fits straight across like a sports bra and can be unsnapped for nursing access on each side.

Bravado's Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra is an incredibly comfortable nursing bra due to the seamless soft and stretchy fabric which offers very good support. This bra features removable molded foam cups which hide nipples and breast pads for a smooth silhouette. This bra has no underwire which makes it safer for nursing and has easy to use one handed nursing clips.

Investing in supportive and comfortable nursing bras during pregnancy will allow you to get maximum use from your purchases. Also, correctly supporting your breasts with the right size, structure and fabric is crucial in maintaining breast health and making your nursing journey much easier.
