To be honest, as a mom I breastfed two children with a mediocre nursing bra I found on the clearance shelf of a Thyme Maternity. I didn't think I was worthy of a good nursing bra, or that I could even find a nursing bra in Prince George, BC - so the few times I found myself near a maternity shop, I'd pick something up that was comfortable enough to stretch out.
First, you are worthy of a quality, comfortable nursing bra. Second, we can help you find a nursing bra that fits.
And if we don't have one in store, we can help you find one that does - whether we order it in, connect you with another local bra shop, or help you know your size for online ordering.
This article will explore our favourite benefits of wearing a nursing bra as a breastfeeding parent - curious about which bra to try? Check out this article instead. My first nursing bra may have been a mediocre sleep bra that barely fit, but it was integral to my nursing experience and the nursing journey's of many more new parents.
Nursing bras provide the ultimate comfort and support for your breasts. With their gentle compression and added support, they help to reduce discomfort and prevent sagging. Plus, they're designed to accommodate your changing breast size and shape during and after pregnancy, so you can wear them throughout your breastfeeding journey.
The My Necessity from Hot Milk Lingerie will change up to three cup sizes, while some multi fit styles will carry a wider range of cups for that flexibility.
But what really makes nursing bras, especially Hot Milk Nursing Bra's, is they are designed for your postpartum body - with the right materials, structure, straps, and band to ensure you feel comfort, lifted, and supported where you need it.
Ease of Access.
With their special openings, nursing bras provide easy access for breastfeeding without having to remove the entire bra. For many, it's a simple nursing clip made of plastic, and sometimes a magnetic clip. For other styles, it might be a cross over style. This means you can quickly and easily breastfeed your baby wherever and whenever they need it, without worrying about fumbling with your clothing or struggling to get your bra off - serious win.
With a nursing bra, you can simply unclip or pull down the special opening and nurse your baby without drawing any unwanted attention. No more awkwardly trying to cover yourself with a blanket or shawl - nursing bras make it easy to breastfeed confidently and comfortably in public. Pair with your favourite nursing shirt, or maybe a Naked Tank for the ultimate in comfort and ease of access for nursing wherever and whenever.
Manage & reduce leaks.
One of my favourite benefits of a nursing bra, and probably the main reason I wore one, is that the compression from the bra kept leaks at bay. Without a bra, breasts can sometimes leak at will - but with a bra, it can be much harder to get to that stage of leaking - you'll still have leaks, but the compression will help.
A nursing bra will also help hold breastfeeding pads close to your body - and in place. Some nursing bra's are now made with built in leak protection, while others may look to consider reusable or disposable nursing pads for short term comfort.
Boost your confidence.
When you're a new mom, it's natural to feel a little self-conscious about breastfeeding in public or even in front of family and friends. But nursing bras can help make the experience more comfortable and discreet, which can help you feel more confident and secure.
But, we've mentioned that already - and one of the reasons we opted to carry Hot Milk Lingerie is because their collection is beautiful offering bodies of all sizes the style and comfort they didn't know they could get with a nursing bra.
When you're a new mom, it can be easy to lose your sense of femininity in the chaos of taking care of your little one. But investing in some beautiful maternity bras can help remind you of the amazing woman you are. With carefully selected pieces that accommodate your changing body, you'll feel proud, confident, and sexy - and your partner will definitely notice!
