An underwire nursing bra lifts and supports breasts using a wire channel that sits under your bust. Some women experience pressure on their milk ducts that may lead to a treatable breast infection called mastitis but nevertheless wearing an ill fitted underwire nursing bra can complicate your nursing success.
Some women experience no pressure on their milk ducts and prefer an underwire nursing bra which is why Bravado designed the Allure Nursing Bra with an wide round wire that is shorter than the under-bust channel to minimize pressure and constriction. Although some moms love wearing Allure while pregnant and during the early stages of nursing – we recommend this bra 6-8 weeks after birth when your nursing routine is well established and fluctuations in weight are less frequent. In addition to the Bravado underwire nursing bras, we offer a small selection of other nursing bras with the recommendation that mothers do not use an underwire until at least 8 weeks postpartum once they have established a consistent size.
