5 Best Nursing Bras and What To Look For

Finding the best nursing bras may be hard but that’s why we have a guide here to help you find the best one for you.

Nursing and breastfeeding are the best times for you to bond with your baby. We often hear the horror stories of doing it every 3 hours but that doesn’t mean we can’t be comfortable while doing it. There are nursing clothes that make you feel great even as a mom which means there are also bras that help you do it in comfort and make it easier. These bras often have a variety of supports and underwires to make sure your breasts don’t feel extra heavy and sore.

1. Bravado Nursing Bra

What makes the Bravado Nursing Bra so good is that it has 3 different flexible band sizes and cup sizes. Especially while you’re nursing, your boobs will change size. Before nursing, it’ll probably swell and maybe ache a little. After nursing, it’s going to shrink. So, it’s good to have the Bravado Nursing Bra which is known for being flexible in size. It even comes in different colors in Mama.Baby.Love and Rustan’s.

2. ThirdLove 24/7 Classic Nursing Bra

With its 80 different sizes and smooth fabric, the ThirdLove 24/7 Classic Nursing Bra is perfect for moms who don’t want to fuss too much about what kind of bra they should wear. The sizes are not the typical size either; they’re custom-made with an allowance for drastic breast size changes for both pregnant or postpartum moms. They have various designs that make it more adjustable for you depending on your lifestyle. They’re an American company so if you’re going to order, make sure you have a debit card specifically made for online purchases so it’s easy to track.

3. Medela House Sleep Bra

Medela House really watches over moms when it boils down to their nursing journey. Not only do they provide breast pumps but also nursing bras. The Medela House Sleep Bra has a criss-cross pattern and doesn’t have locks so it’s easy for you to lower one of the sides for your baby to access. The bra’s also seamless meaning it won’t show if you wear tight clothes and it’s made from an elastic but comfortable material. The material’s also dry fit so you won’t have to worry about sweating. If you want to buy one, you can get one either from Lazada or call 0917-5614366, 725-3723, 738-6272 or 964-7331. They usually deliver from the Parenting House in New Manila.

4. Mamaway Crossover Sleeping & Nursing Bra

The Mamaway Crossover Sleeping & Nursing Bra’s known for giving moms a silky feel while they’re nursing. But the best part of this nursing bra is that you can remove the breast pads if they’re not to your liking. It’s also easy access for your baby when you start nursing since it’s made of a stretchable material. To buy the Mamaway Crossover Sleeping & Nursing Bra, you can get it on Lazada or you can check Mamaway’s website!

5. Babymama Semi Push Up Non Wire Nursing Bra

If you’re on a budget, the Babymama Semi Push Up Non-Wire Nursing Bra’s perfect. The greatest feature of the Babymama Semi Push Up Non-Wire Nursing Bra is that it offers support with the underwire in the Nursing Bra. It helps keep your breasts up so the weight’s taken off your back. If you’re looking to buy a lot of these, you can check Babymama PH and who knows? You might get lucky when they have a sale.

Nursing your baby should be a comfortable experience!

Nursing is an experience that lets a mom and baby bond. Although it can get frustrating and tiring, that doesn’t mean it can’t be comfortable. Nursing bras help ease along the process, supporting your breasts, taking the weight off your back, and stopping you from mangling your other bras just to make it easier. But when it comes to choosing, take all the time you need because the best nursing bra is the kind that can last you a long time without making any other drastic changes to your lifestyle.
