To help you find the right bra, we're taking a closer look at some of our favorite nursing bra styles. We'll give you a rundown of their features and what stage they’re best for and share feedback from our team of bra experts, many of whom are nursing moms themselves. Each of our bras is unique, and we hope that sharing our team’s insights will help you decide which bra will work best for you.

French Terry Racerback

French terry racerback nursing bra

Bra basics: The French terry fabric is ultra-soft and soothing for sensitive breasts. The racerback style gives it a sporty look and feel with light support, making it the perfect nursing sleep bra, maternity bra, or regular bra.

Who it’s good for: Those who want to wear a bra without feeling like they’re wearing a bra; anyone who likes the idea of a sports bra but doesn’t like being too compressed; those looking for a bra with easy nursing access and light support that will keep nursing pads in place

“I love the French Terry Racerback! I wear it all the time when I want a sporty look under clothes but don’t want to feel compressed all day long. I also wear it anytime I’m traveling and just want to be comfortable.” - Deeanne, Co-Founder, Designer 

Simply Sublime® Bra

Simply Sublime Bra

Bra basics: The Simply Sublime Bra is a classic style nursing bra with an adjustable hook-and-eye back closure, easy-to-use nursing clips, and removable padding.

Who it’s good for: Anyone who expects their cup size to change (the material stretches to accommodate breast size fluctuations); those who want moderate coverage and wire free support with a smooth look

“I’m a 36F, and I love the Simply Sublime Bra in Large. The softness of the material and the overall stretch were a true gift to my nipples and breasts, which were sensitive from my baby’s latching difficulties. Then I tried the Large in Busty sizing and fell even more in love with the full coverage it provides! The wider straps and fuller cups gave my milk-heavy breasts a bit of extra lift and support that I didn’t know I was missing. I highly recommend trying the Busty if you’re a DD/E cup or above!” - Hannah, Senior Customer Care Manager

Bonus: The Simply Sublime Bra now has a glamorous sister bra in the same amazing material! The Sublime® Lace Racerback Bra features a peek-a-boo lace accent in the back, making it the perfect maternity bra or nursing bra for strappy tanks, dresses, and more!

Sublime® Hands-Free Pumping & Nursing Bra

Bra basics: This dual-purpose product is the multitasker of bras! It features hands-free (yes, really) pumping support, easy access for nursing, and the option to do both at the same time. If you’re looking for one bra to get you through the workweek, this is it! (It may even be as essential as your breast pump!) 

Who it’s good for: Anyone who plans on pumping, whether it’s exclusively or occasionally! This pumping bra eliminates the dreaded pumping wardrobe change and allows you to move seamlessly from work to pumping and back. It saves you time and simplifies your pumping life.  

“The Sublime Hands-Free Pumping Bra was a key piece in my breastfeeding journey. It helped make pumping while at work and away from my baby SO much easier. I didn't dread the process, and it helped save time, which is very, very precious as a mom.” – Lisa, Marketing Manager

Bonus: Purchase this bra in a discounted 3-pack as part of our Wash, Wear, Spare bundle! When you’ve got enough pump bras to rotate, you won’t have to search for a clean one!

Sublime® Nursing Sports Bra

Bra basics: The holy grail of sports bras. Whether you’re taking a walk, doing yoga, lifting weights, or lifting kids, this moisture-wicking sports nursing bra gives you the perfect support for low-impact activities.

Who it’s good for: Anyone! This bra is available in regular and Busty sizes and is comfortable enough to be the extra motivation you need to get more movement in your life.

“I love my Sublime Nursing Sports Bra so much! I find it supportive and sooo comfortable to wear, unlike other sports bras that I've tried. It's not just for my workout sessions. It's also my everyday bra.” – Kristin, Marketing Outreach Assistant

Sublime® Adjustable Crossover Nursing & Lounge Bra

Bra basics: Made of a soft and supple material, this bra provides the pillowy support of a lounge bra with the convenience of adjustable straps and removable padding. It’s perfect as a sleeping bra, with easy pull-aside nursing access, or as a T-shirt bra.

Who it’s good for: Lovers of comfort who want light support so soft they’ll forget they’re wearing a bra (in the best way)!  

“The Sublime Adjustable Crossover is the most comfortable bra I have ever put on. I had to buy another one just so I could put the one I was wearing 24/7 in the wash!” – Kim, Amazon Channel Manager
