Long term thinking
Your breast change during pregnancy and nursing. Therefore, it is a good idea to choose a nursing bra where you can fit one hand inside the cup, so that the size is flexible and allows space for nursing pads if necessary.
Choose a soft bra and give chafing a miss
Choose a stretchy, flexible, seamless and unwired bra, and there will be no chafing seams. This is especially important if you use the nursing bra at night.
Fasten your nursing bra properly
Remember that the bottom elastic stretches with time. When you try on the bra, always fasten it on the outermost hooks, and choose a bra with a smaller girth if the bra rides up too much in the back. If trying out a bra towards the end of pregnancy, start with the outer hooks, or use the hook-and-eye extension for size adjustment. In this way, the bra can be reduced in size after the baby is born.
When you try on a bra, move around, stretch your arms above your head and to the sides, lean forward, or walk on the spot. This way you will find out if the bra offers good support and feels comfortable.
Smooth nursing - One-handed
To be able to serve your baby quickly and easily it is important to have easy access to your breasts. Check the bra clips - are they easy to unclip and clip with one hand?
1. Measure around your body under your bust. If you don't get an even number, round up or down, depending on the desired fit.
2. Measure around the fullest part of your bust. The difference between your bust size and the size under your bust is your cup size.
You will find the size guide for our bras under each product in our collection of nursing bras.
How to get a great fit?
Adjust and tighten the shoulder straps until they fit well. The cup should not wrinkle or slip down over the bust. If so, the cup is too big. The bust should not cut into the edges of the bra. If so, the cup is too small.
