Finding the perfect pregnancy bras may seem to be almost impossible.
This is because your breasts are constantly changing size and shape, not to mention that they could also be sore and tender.
A lot of women don’t feel like wearing a bra at all, but in some cases it is a must.
Nursing bra as the bra for pregnancy
While some of the women would simply get a larger bra, the specialists usually recommend women to get a special nursing bra. After giving birth, your breasts will continue to change their size especially if you opt for breastfeeding. The size should stabilize as soon as you get a regular feeding schedule.
The best thing about the maternity bras is that you can adjust them so that they will continuously meet your needs. As a result even if your breasts change their shape and size, you will be able to use the same maternity bra so you can make economies by buying only a few bras.
Pregnancy bras and regular bras
The main point of these bras is to offer accessibility and comfort. However this doesn’t mean that they have to be ugly. The majority of the manufacturers understand the need of women to feel sexy and they offer a wide range of styles to choose from. These bras, just like the regular bras have clasps in the back.
The bras for maternity, unlike the regular bras, come with four clasps and they also offer more support. The bands of the bras are also wider. There are also some differences when it comes to cup support. The nursing bras offer different options. One of the designs comes with clasps for a part that can be folded down for feedings.
Another kind of the pregnancy bras come with snaps that you can fold towards your armpits when breastfeeding. The third kind of bra makes it possible for you to move a part of the bra around the breast while propping it forward. Make sure that you can undo the clasps easily with one hand.
If you are thinking about the fabric of the bras for pregnant women, the most popular choice is cotton because it dries very fast. There are also some bras made of synthetic materials but these don’t breathe as well as cotton. However some others say that these may breathe even better than cotton.
It is important for the pregnancy bras to have a perfect fit. If the bra is too small, it will add some pressure on the breasts that could result in plugged milk ducts. The sad truth is that about 80% of all women are wearing the wrong bra size. You should take steps to make sure that you have the right fit.
To find the perfect pregnant women’s bra you should start by a wearing a perfect fitting, non-padded bra. Then wrap the measuring tape around your rib cage right under your bust. This will be your band size.
