Maternity Bras

Firstly, a maternity bra is a nursing bra is a maternity bra. Thats that cleared up.

The right time to be fitted for a maternity bra varies from woman to woman and there is no right time for everyone. The breast begins to prepare for lactation quite early in pregnancy and some women will outgrow their usual bra size earlier than others. Generally speaking, most of the changes to the breast have occurred by around four months (16 weeks gestation) and this is a good time to be fitted, if you haven't needed to earlier.
 
A correctly fitted bra gives you comfort and support, so it is a good idea to be professionally fitted. You will be fitted for the size you are at the time, as maternity bras have your changing needs incorporated into their design. It is not necessary to buy a bra you will grow into - indeed too big can be as bad as too small!

All you need to know about nursing bras:

  • Breasts may frequently change size and shape throughout pregnancy and after giving birth.
  • A wire-free maternity bra should be worn until a nursing bra is required.
  • Mums are advised to get professionally fitted for their nursing bra at 36-38 weeks. At this stage, breasts have often grown to their approximate nursing size.
  • In the first few days following delivery, breasts often swell as the milk comes in. The soft and stretchy micro fibre in the Bravado bras can accommodate subtle changes in breast size and shape, as the fabric grows and shrinks with the breast.
  • Mums experiencing extreme changes in breast size should avoid wearing any under garment that restricts breast tissue leading to blocked ducts. 
Nursing bras should:
  • be fitted correctly
  • be non-restrictive
  • support your breasts well
  • open easily for feeding
  • have comfortable fabric which allows your skin to breathe
  • be machine washable and hard wearing
