Buying a nursing bra is an important purchase. We believe moms should be informed, especially when buying something that affects your breast health. Whether you shop Bravado, Elila, QT Foundations, La Leche League International, Amamante Nursingwear, or Fancee Free for your nursing bras, there are a few facts you need. Nursing bras with polyester cups do not breathe. You don't need to make yourself susceptible to sore nipples or yeast by keeping nipples wet. Bras that have cups that are at least 90% cotton or breathable microfiber are best to keep nipples healthy. Blended bras that have 7-10% lycra or spandex...not polyester are perfect for keeping their shape. Make sure you are not buying bras that are just "cotton lined" because air must be able to circulate through both layers. Under wires can plug milk ducts so if you can't live without your under wire, choose an under wire nursing bra with a removable wire, foam under support or a three part cup for additional lift and support. We specialize in soft cup nursing bras! Plugged ducts can lead to lower milk supply or breast infection so avoiding underwires is optimal. Your breasts are fuller before feedings and emptier afterwards especially in the first two months. This makes it hard to get an under wire to sit behind the breast tissue. Your breasts change again at about six months when your baby begins to nurse less. That's why we don't carry a full line of under wire nursing bras. We care about your breast health. Nursing sleep bras are important for light-weight support and leakage at night. Most don't have hooks in the back to make sleep uncomfortable. Amamante Nursingwear 2012 is perfect for most moms, but if you are bigger than a DD, try Fancee Free 96261, 96360, Amamante 2013 or the 1013 Bravado Double Plus Nursing bra which is great for day or night. We try to keep our prices very competitive and we understand that everyone has a budget. That's why we carry bras in several price ranges, but larger cup sizes need more support and those bras do cost more. Now the Bravado bras are offered in sizes up to K cup and the Bravado Essential Nursing Tank is offered in F and G cups. Most women wear the wrong size. Visit our nursing bra fitting room to measure yourself. A good fitting bra will not ride up your back or push your breast together. Instead it should lift and separate. When trying on a bra, make sure to lift your breast up into it and then adjust the straps accordingly.
