Congratulations on your journey into motherhood! Your body is undergoing incredible changes in preparation for the arrival of your baby. With these transformations, it's crucial to ensure you have the appropriate bras for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Why is this important?

Well-fitting bras offer vital breast support and facilitate easy and discreet feeding for your child.

Choosing Between Soft Cup and Underwire Maternity and Nursing Bras

Soft cup nursing bras (those without underwire) tend to be more comfortable when breasts are fullest, typically during the last months of pregnancy and the initial 6-8 weeks of breastfeeding. These bras accommodate the changing size and sensitivity of breasts. Modern options provide both style and support, such as You! Lingerie bras.

Underwire bras are known for their support and lift, but some caution against wearing them during breastfeeding. If you've always favored underwire bras and need the support, opt for a flexible and cushioned underwire nursing bra. Ensure the wire fits well beneath and behind breast tissue to prevent pressure-related issues like plugged ducts and potential infections like mastitis.

Wishing you a joyful experience in finding the perfect nursing and maternity bras to suit your needs!
