Pregnancy and nursing aren’t exactly the most comfortable times. Your body is coming out of left field with all kinds of changes. Some are amazing. Some are very unpleasant. All are miraculous. You might feel a little uncomfortable in your own expanding body as change to accommodate that little life growing inside you. Your breasts go through a lot of changes as they prepare for you to give birth and again while you’re nursing. Nursing bras are specifically designed to adjust with you.
These bras have no underwire to speak of. There will be no wire pressing into your rib cage. Usually made out of a breathable fabric and combined with spandex, these bras can contract or expand with you. These bras usually come with expanders, too, so you can manually extend your bra if you need to. The bras also have removable padding and have adjustable drop cups, which make breastfeeding easy. The makers know you’re going to be holding a baby and trying to unhook the drop cups. They designed it so you can unhook the clasp one-handed.
We picked out the best nursing bras that are comfy and durable. These bras can take you from pregnancy to motherhood seamlessly. Some of our options are even cute and stylish, so you can feel good about wearing them.
