When buying nursing bras, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure that you get a comfortable, supportive and convenient bra for breastfeeding:
Comfort: Choose bras that are made from soft and breathable fabrics to reduce friction and irritation. Look for wide straps that distribute weight evenly and don't dig into your shoulders.
Support: The bra should provide additional support to the breasts, which can become heavier and more sensitive during lactation. Look for bras with a wide band or straps that cross at the back to provide additional support.
Adjustability: The bra should have the ability to expand or tighten as your body changes throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding. Look for multiple rows of hooks on the back and adjustable straps. A seamless nursing bra is essential for its ability to adapt to your changing body.
Easy access: Look for bras that have flaps or clips that can be unfastened with one hand to provide easy access to the breast for breastfeeding.
Size: Look for size charts or measuring guides provided by the retailer and compare your measurements to find the right size.
Reviews: Read reviews from other customers to get an idea of the fit and comfort of the nursing bra. This can also give you an idea of any issues to watch out for when buying the bra.
Variety: Nursing bras come in different styles such as full coverage, balconette, plunge, and wireless. Consider your wardrobe and lifestyle when choosing a style.
In general, it's a good idea to have a few different types of nursing bras to accommodate for different occasions and your changing body during breastfeeding.
