The Most Popular Brands to Buy in Nursing Bras

Maternity and nursing bras are created to provide greater support, comfort, flexibility to avoid restriction to the breast tissue. There is a noticeable difference in a normal non-maternity bra and a nursing bra. Women's breasts go through a lot of changes after becoming pregnant, during pregnancy, and then again after birth.

When should you be fitted for a maternity bra?

Experts recommend that you get fitted as soon as you start to feel discomfort or become sore. This can occur between week 12 to 15, or earlier. Due to glandular development, your breasts will increase in size. Certainly, after the first trimester, it would be ideal to be fitted when your breasts have stabilized in size. By around 38 weeks, your breasts will have developed in size again due to becoming ready for milk. After birth, your breasts will settle and regulate themselves.
