Nursing & Maternity Bras for Every Occasion

Finding a maternity and nursing bra that is comfortable, supportive and easy for feeding can make or break your breastfeeding journey. When shopping for a nursing bra there are a few key things to look out for:

 Easy Access: For speed, efficiency and dignity, you don't want to be fussing and flailing in the way of establishing your baby's latch. Look for nursing bras with nursing clips or soft and stretchy pull-aside styles.

Adjustability: Pregnant or nursing, its important that you stay comfortable in a well-fitted bra - Your body is going to change fluctuate after pregnancy with nursing and weight loss in the equation. But, thankfully, - as you'll see below - the best maternity and nursing bras are designed to grow with you.

Potential Padding: Most nursing bras don't come with padding as it isn’t a necessity when looking for a nursing bra, but they can offer additional protection for milk leaks, especially during those first few weeks when milk supply can often exceed demand. Our best recommendation for leaky nipples are, naturally, our organic bamboo fleece breast pads

Support: Look for ergonomic designs that cater to your own shape and how you want to feel. For example in the newborn stage, your top priority will most likely be comfort, whilst later on when you start to nurse less frequently, you may prefer to go for more structure and style forward options.
