Just as there are different dresses for different occasions, you'll find different styles of nursing and maternity bras to suit your needs. For some women, one really high-quality nursing bra could do the trick for sleeping, lounging, and going out. For most women, having several different bras and styles (pumping bra, racerback bra, sports bra, etc.!) will make this period of life much more comfortable. It’s also important to consider how your needs may change during the postpartum period. In the early months, you’ll likely be doing a lot of lounging around the house. You’ll want soft, smooth, stretchy material, with flexible sizing and quick access to the breast. Later, as you start venturing out more, you’ll want a more structured bra that looks great underneath your clothing and has contoured cups, additional strap support, and sexier styling, like our T-Shirt Bra, the type of plunge bra with molded cups that you’ll want about three to four months after having your baby. Moms who pump will want a pumping bra -- and our double pumping bra can be worn whether you’re pumping, nurse, or both at the same time! Active moms love having sports bras with nursing access, so they can attend to a hungry baby between yoga poses. And for moms who love a little lace, our Sublime family of bras now has an adorable lace racerback nursing & maternity bra.
