5 Places to Buy Nursing Bras

Looking for a high-quality nursing bra? Here are our top five favorite brands – there is something for every budget!

When it comes to breastfeeding not all bras are created equal. If you plan to breastfeed you will want a nursing bra that fits well, is comfortable and allows for easy nursing.

Every breastfeeding and pumping mom should invest in a few good nursing bras. Wearing a bra designed specifically for nursing will make the experience so much nicer and comfortable.

I have breastfed all of my children and have worn nursing bras- but I’ve also breastfed without wearing a nursing bra and I can tell a big difference between. Wearing a nursing bra is hands down- way more comfortable!

Even if you only plan to breastfeed or pump for a short while you will want to wear a nursing bra- it really will be worth it. And don’t worry- nursing bras have come a long way over the years so there are plenty of bras out there that are stylish, modern and won’t make you feel frumpy.

We’ve rounded up our top five favorite nursing bras and giving you all the details so you can choose which one will work best for you!

How does a nursing bra work?

Nursing bras can look very much like a regular bra. They come in all sorts of colors and styles. The biggest difference is that nursing bras allow for easy nursing or pumping using a a snap-down closure or a V-shaped, lower cut front that can be easily pulled down making way for a nursing baby or breast pump.

How many nursing bras do I need?

How many nursing bras you need depends on how regularly you plan to breastfeed or pump. If you are exclusively doing either one than it might be nice to get as many a five nursing bras but you could get away with as little as three as well.

You want to make sure you always have a couple clean ones ready to go as well as one to change into for night time if you would like.

How do I know what kind of nursing bra to buy?

Before buying a nursing bra you will want to decide what features are the most important to you and how often you will be wearing it. Some women wear nursing bras day and night while other may only wear a bra during the day time.

A few things to consider when buying a nursing bra might include:

  • Comfort
  • Color
  • Style
  • Padding\Lining
  • Hooks
  • Wireless or Seamless
