How to Choose the Right Nursing Bra for You

When it comes to maternity clothes shopping most women think of cute dresses to show off their new baby bump, or maternity pants and shorts that will fit them the rest of their pregnancy. However, they don’t think about another part of their body that is also going to grow. Their breasts. Nursing bras are definitely important to purchase during your pregnancy. But how do you know which nursing bra to get? There are so many on the market. I’m going to break it down so you know what to look for to choose the right nursing bra for you.

1. When Should I Buy Nursing Bras?

You want to buy a nursing bra (or two) not too early in your pregnancy, but not too late. If you purchase them too early your breasts will (more than likely) get larger due to your milk coming in, and your rib cage will expand to make room for your baby. Purchasing your nursing bras too early will lead you to purchase the wrong size. However, if you wait until too late, you will find yourself ordering several quickly online with a baby on you. The problem with this last minute purchasing is the tendency to buy the wrong size and style in haste.

So when is the right time? We recommend buying two nursing bras during your third trimester. By doing this your breasts will be closer to the size they’ll be when you’re breastfeeding and you will only have made a small investment. After you have your baby and your milk has come in, you will know which style you prefer from your two bras and will be able to get a bigger size if necessary.

2. What Material Should I Choose?

Our nipples are sensitive. We all know that. They become even more sensitive when you start breastfeeding. All of the sucking and tugging from breastfeeding can really take their toll on the girls, so finding materials that will be soft and comfortable to wear are key. I highly recommend getting a nursing bra that is made of cotton, especially when you are first starting your breastfeeding journey.

There are some other newer synthetic materials on the market that also allow your skin to breathe. Bravado has quite a selection of fabrics that are delicate enough for your breasts. If you are purchasing elsewhere, just make sure that you don’t buy anything with a plastic lining.

3. What Style Should I Get?

Nursing bras have really evolved over the years. There are several styles available that you can choose from. There are:

  • Comfort nursing bras – Instead of a cup size and measurement, these range in sizes from small, medium, large, etc. They are a favored by many women since they provide good support, but less structure. I personally love comfort nursing bras and adore The Original Nursing Bra as well as the Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra from Bravado. They are super comfortable to wear and you can wear them anytime, anywhere. If your girls are a bit bustier, try The Original Full Cup Nursing Bra.
  • Underwire nursing bras – When I am going out for a work appointment or a date night with my husband I love the Belle Underwire Nursing Bra. Underwire bras are fine to wear as long as they fit you properly and have enough stretch to grow as your breasts grow.
  • Sleeping bras – I love a good sleeping bra! Sleeping bras are made to be worn at home lounging with baby as well as for sleeping, of course. They are incredibly comfortable and allow you to pull the soft elastic fabric to the side to nurse your little one. I recommend you only wearing these at home since they provide very little support.

4. Should I Get an Underwire Nursing Bra?

Some women hear that they shouldn’t get a nursing bar with underwire because it can cause clogged milk ducts. While this can be true, there are actually things that you can do to avoid this. The first step is to be properly fitted, preferably by a professional. The second step is to wait six to eight weeks before you wear one. Why? The underwire in the bra can obstruct the breast’s milk-producing tissue around your rib cage and your armpit. Waiting until you have breastfeeding and your milk supply established helps avoid clogged ducts and getting an infection.

5. How Do I Measure Myself for a Nursing Bra?

Our breasts change dramatically after we have a baby. Here are some steps to help you get the right measurements for your nursing bra:

Step 1: Determine your band size –  How do you do this? Grab a measuring tape and wrap it around your back, under your armpits and up above your breasts. Always round up to the nearest whole number when measuring. You will then determine if you are 34, 36, 38, etc.

How to Choose the Right Nursing Bra for You | Baby Chick

Step 2: Determine your cup size – To do this, measure yourself around your back and then over the center of your breasts. This should be the fullest part of your breasts. Subtract your band size circumference from the mid-breast circumference to determine your cup size. For example, if your band size is 38 and you have a 42 inch mid-breast circumference, you have 4 inches worth of cup size. Each inch stands for a bra cup size: A, B, C, D, etc. With 4 inches, you should be looking for a bra around 36D.

If the Difference Is:

  • 1/2″ – 1″
  • 2″
  • 3″
  • 4″
  • 5″
  • 6″
  • 7″
  • 8″
  • 9″
  • 10″
  • 11″
  • 12″

Your Cup Size Is:

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D
  • DD/E
  • DDD/F
  • G
  • H
  • I
  • J
  • K
  • L

6. What If My Body Changes More than I Expected?

On a standard bra you will have a few rows of hooks at the back so that you can adjust the fit to your body. Nursing bras usually have several more rows of hooks, which is great since your breast size will change throughout your pregnancy, after baby and even throughout the day as your breasts fill and your baby empties.

I love how Bravado also provides bra extenders for their bras as well in case you need more room for better comfort.

Another cool thing they provide with some of their bras is a bra conversion kit. This bra conversion kit gives you the option to convert your Bravado nursing bra to a “regular bra” once you have completed your breastfeeding journey.

7. How Many Nursing Bras Should I Get?

Professionals normally recommend that you buy three: “one to wear, one in the laundry, and one in your drawer.” I have more than three which allows me to wash less often. 😉

8. Still Having Problems?

Make an appointment with a pro! You can get fitted by an expert–a certified bra fitter–that knows exactly what size and style you need. Call your local maternity stores to find one near you. If you’re unable to find one, visit Bravado’s bra fitting guide page or contact them at 1-800-590-7802. They’ll answer your questions and help you with your nursing bra purchase!

Good luck on finding the perfect nursing bra for you!

Becoming a #newmom is simultaneously one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments in a person’s life. Your baby is finally here, and you get to embark on this amazing new phase of life. 😍 On the flipside, you also suddenly have a new life to take care of –  and one that is 100% dependent on you. Cue the anxiousness! 😳 To make it even more fun, there’s definitely no instruction manual for this new tiny human, but seemingly everyone has an opinion and they are not afraid to give their (well-meaning but usually irritating) advice to new moms. 🙄 What new moms need to hear and what most everyone tells them are, unfortunately, very different things!⁠ So if you’re wondering what you should and shouldn’t say to a new mom, here are a few quick tips.⁠ 👍⁠ {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

Congratulations! 🤗🎉 There is so much oxytocin in the room (the "love" hormone) that everyone is on a high! 😍 Your body has accomplished so much up to this point, growing and birthing a baby, and it will continue to do hard work during your recovery post-birth. 💪 But you've done it!

As the days pass after giving birth your exhaustion levels go up. 😴 After delivering a baby, regardless of the method of delivery, and staying up all night (night after night) #sex may be one of the last things on your mind. 🙅‍♀️ Between the physical changes to your body from the delivery, the exhaustion of caring for a newborn, and the emotional changes induced by hormones, there are just a few barriers to #sexafterbaby. If you feel this way, the good news is these feelings are very normal, common, and temporary. But, it is also normal, common, and good to want to have sex with your partner as soon as you can. ❤️ But how long do you need to wait to have sex after having a baby? And why?⁠ 🤔 We have an OBGYN answering these questions and more on baby-chick.com {Click the 🔗 in our bio!}⁠

❤️ How to Parent With Encouragement Instead of ❤️ How to Parent With Encouragement Instead of Criticism ❤️⁠
.⁠
As a both a parent and an educator, my hope is to parent with encouragement instead of criticism. But like any parent, I’m not perfect, and I’ve been on my own journey to learn how to discipline my children without criticizing them when they make a mistake. This topic has been of particular interest to me over the years.⁠
.⁠
A fascinating article published in The Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology found that children who are constantly being criticized develop a habit of avoiding looking at other people’s facial expressions—whether those people are expressing positive or negative feelings. By avoiding looking at other people, children’s ability to receive positive information and make positive social connection with others is undermined. Researchers suggest that this could lead to anxiety and depression in that child.⁠
.⁠
More and more scientific research shows how parenting and education techniques that revolve around encouragement rather than criticism can lead to a healthier self-image and positive behavior in children. With depression, anxiety, and suicide on the rise for youth across our nation, it is more important than ever before for us to lovingly examine the ways we parent and how we talk to our children during these early childhood years. {Continue reading by clicking 🔗 in bio❤️}⁠

🧘‍♀️ 10 Self-Care Necessities for Moms 💅⁠
.⁠
As mothers, we are usually the last ones on our priority list. There is so much to do . . . for the house, for our jobs, for our partners and pets, and especially for our children. It can leave us with little to no time for ourselves. With self-care making a comeback and more people recognizing the importance of "me time" and mental health, people are speaking up and making themselves a priority again. As moms, we need to do the same. Because as they say, it's not us saying "me first" it's us saying "me too." Moms matter! So if you're looking for some items that can help you put yourself back on your to-do list, we're sharing our self-care necessities for moms that we love and recommend. ❤️ {Click 🔗 in bio to check them out!}⁠

😴 Finding Rest During the Newborn Days 😴⁠ 😴 Finding Rest During the Newborn Days 😴⁠
.⁠
Nothing is more amazing than the moment you see your baby’s face for the first time. The joy, excitement and love that overcome you make it feel like you are literally on top of the world! It isn’t until you get home where the doubts, fear and overwhelming feelings begin to kick in. Suddenly, you are responsible for this tiny, helpless being . . . who won't sleep! 😳 You are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. And you start to wonder how you will ever find rest during these seemingly endless newborn days. 😖⁠
.⁠
Unfortunately, nothing can prepare you for how hard, exhausting, lonely and overwhelming motherhood can be. There are levels of tired no one can accurately describe. The good news is that you are not alone, and the way you're feeling is very normal. And I am here to tell you that you are doing great and that these hard moments won’t last forever.⁠
.⁠
As a mom of three little ones (6 years, 4 years and 2 years) I have experienced first-hand MANY exhausting moments. As a Certified Sleep Consultant, I have worked with hundreds of families who are experiencing exhausting moments themselves. We all go through really hard times on our parenting journey and that is okay. I always tell my fellow moms that it is okay to NOT be okay! One of my favorite quotes is “we are wired to do hard things.” But that doesn't mean you can't get some help and advice along the way. {Click the 🔗 in bio to continue reading how to find rest during the newborn days}⁠

.⁠
Welcome to #parenthood! After what seems like forever, baby has finally arrived. 😍 This is one of the most exciting, nerve-wracking times a person can have in their life, and it can be very easy to get overwhelmed and lost in the moment. 🙈 But this first week as a new parent can be one of the hardest.⁠
.⁠
I thought reading a few books was all I really needed to prepare me for motherhood, but in the end, it was completely different from anything I ever imagined. The first week, especially, was much more overwhelming than I expected; you’re physically recovering from #childbirth, your hormones running haywire as they start to resettle back to some sort of normal, and you’re getting to know your baby, all while trying to get them to eat, sleep, and stay healthy and strong.⁠

Looking back on that time, there are definitely more than a handful of things I wish I could have told my newbie-mom self to do, but here are my top five pieces of advice for the first week as a new parent. {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

🍌 Baby-Led Weaning is Actually the Best Lazy Pa 🍌 Baby-Led Weaning is Actually the Best Lazy Parenting Hack 🥑⁠
.⁠
Baby-led Weaning has become a very popular feeding trend in the last decade or so. When I first started having kids, though, I'd never heard of it. After my daughter was born, I assumed I would eventually give her purees when it was time to start her on solid food. However, I knew I would never give her the awful canned baby food in the grocery store.⁠
.⁠
For one thing, I had terrible college experiences (hey, sorority games!) trying those purees and the thought of it made me gag. Secondly, I knew from research that most of these store-bought purees were not made with quality ingredients and often had sugar added. I preferred to feed my baby good food, so I decided I was going to make her purees. How hard could it be?⁠
.⁠
Long story short, I survived one week making homemade purees. ONE WEEK. I discovered the hard way that I did not have time, nor patience, nor energy, to make my kid food every several days. Admitting to myself that I was a lazy mom (i.e., tired mom), I was determined to find a better way. I started researching other methods of introducing solids and (praise the heavens!) I stumbled onto Baby-Led Weaning. 🙌 {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading about Baby Led Weaning!}⁠

Yes, pregnancy is a blessing. But no, you don’t Yes, pregnancy is a blessing. But no, you don’t have to love every minute of it to be a good mom. Just because you might not like moments (or days or weeks) of being pregnant, it doesn’t mean you don’t want your baby or don’t love your baby or that you’re ungrateful to be pregnant. Pregnancy is a lot of work and can be crazy uncomfortable and exhausting. But, of course, you love your baby. It’s okay to be tired and over it and ready to meet your baby. And yes, you are still a good mom. ❤️

❤️ Low Cost Date Night Ideas for Couples on a ❤️ Low Cost Date Night Ideas for Couples on a Budget ❤️⁠
.⁠
Ah, #dating. Do you remember those days? After #marriage and a baby, dating your partner is probably the last thing on your mind. I get it. Dating is expensive. It takes time. It takes energy. These are things you may be lacking as a busy couple. But, there are low cost #datenight ideas you can incorporate into your busy schedule and I think you should. Why? Because dating your partner now is more important than ever.⁠
.⁠
Not only is dating after you are #married incredibly beneficial to your marriage, it's also really important to the rest of your #family dynamic. When mom and dad are happy and show #love toward one another, kids can feel that energy. The same is true when mom and dad aren't happy. For these reasons, date night should be one of the most important appointments on that very busy family calendar!⁠
.⁠
With a little planning, you can incorporate date night back into your schedule. Start with one night a month, for example. Then perhaps try to find time for one night a week. There are a lot of ways you and your partner can invest in one another without spending much (if anything!) and, perhaps, not even leaving the house! Here are some low cost date night ideas you can use to start making your dating life a priority again. {Click 🔗 in bio to check out our low cost date night ideas!}⁠
