First, it’s essential to know your pre-pregnancy bra size and keep in mind that during pregnancy, your breasts will likely increase in size. To choose a nursing bra before birth, I recommend using a flexible measuring tape to measure around the fullest part of your bust and just under your bust where the band of the bra sits. This will give you an accurate starting point for finding the right size. Also, consider the different styles of nursing bras available – including seamless, underwire, and sports bras – to determine which style best suits your comfort and support needs.

It’s important to consider any specific features you may need in a nursing bra such as adjustable straps for easy breastfeeding access or extra back support if you have larger breasts. It is also useful to check for moisture-wicking fabric if you plan on being active while wearing the nursing bra. Be aware of any potential allergies or skin sensitivities when choosing materials like cotton, polyester blends or lace.

Consult with our experienced fitters at our store who can guide you through selecting a nursing bra that provides proper support and comfort throughout pregnancy and post-birth. They can provide personalized recommendations based on your measurements and preferences ensuring that you’re well-equipped with options before baby arrives.

A common misconception is that all nursing bras are unattractive or bulky; however, there are plenty of stylish options available that offer both functionality and aesthetic appeal. The truth is that modern nursing bras come in a variety of designs including lacy details or sleek silhouettes without sacrificing practicality.

A less-known fact is that certain brands carry extended sizing specifically designed for fuller figures providing additional support without sacrificing style; knowing this can be beneficial for those who require more specialized sizing options.

The next step would be to schedule a fitting appointment at our store so we can find the perfect nursing bra tailored to meet all your needs.

Remember: Finding the right fit now means one less thing to worry about after baby arrives.
