Look no further for affordable, comfortable, practical and fashionable nursing bras. We now have a range of nursing bra to suit every woman. And if you’re unsure of what to look for in a nursing bras, read on as we demystify nursing/maternity bras.
With pregnancy comes an increasing in breast size and if you’re already on the well endowed side it can be a daunting prospect that your breasts will increase in size.
Remember, wearing a well fitted and well support bra may help reduce the stretching of breast tissue that can lead to breast sagging.
When should I buy a nursing bra? You can start wearing a nursing bra at any point in your pregnancy. Some women start at the end of the first trimester, others after they’ve given birth. We think you should start wearing a nursing bra when your everyday bras become uncomfortable or once you outgrow them. Nursing bras are designed for comfort and support so if you’re suffering from tenderness, or are more sensitive then we suggest swapping to a nursing bra once the first signs appear.
What is a sleep bra?
Whilst breastfeeding some women prefer to wear a soft cup bra or crop top to bed. This ensures that nursing pads stay where they should and some women find it more comfortable to sleep with a little more support. Most of our maternity/nursing range could easily be worn as a sleeping bra and we have soft cup cotton bra can use as a sleeping bra. When looking for a bra to sleep in, avoid anything with an underwire or padded cups.

How many nursing bras do I need?
We recommend 3-5 nursing bras as a great foundation. Whilst breastfeeding your breasts may leak milk so expect to change your bra more frequently than usual. By having 3-5 bras in rotation you can always have one on, one in the wash and one on stand-by.
If you need advice or help with breastfeeding the Australian Breastfeeding Association is a wonderful resource. They have local meet-ups across Australia, an active forum where you can ask any questions as well as a helpline that you can call.
