Frequently Asked Feeding Bra Questions
Q. What is maternity bra for?
A. Many women wrongly assume that their breasts grow only during the last couple of months, but that is actually not the case. The breasts begin to grow in the early weeks or months of your pregnancy. Also every pregnancy is different; you cannot tell for sure what your breasts are going to look like by the end of it all. But if you start feeling tight and uncomfortable in your bra, it is a good sign that your breasts are growing and it’s time to buy a maternity bra. Another important point to note is that a maternity bra is different from a nursing bra. Maternity Bras are just stretchier and have more hooks & eyes to make sure you breasts sit in them comfortably as they keep growing. Normally, during pregnancy or after it, your breasts will grow a cup size or two bigger. Invest in maternity bras because otherwise you end up wearing the wrong size and feeling uncomfortable.
Q. Why is nursing bra used?
A. Earlier women had special attires or undergarments to wear when their body underwent changes. Isn’t that sad? Imagine having to suffer in ill-fitting clothes all day and then having to undress every time to feed. Not only is it messy and annoying, it is also unhealthy and unhygienic. To put an end to all that pain, the nursing bra was invented. The nursing bra is worn after pregnancy, during your breastfeeding months. It is specially designed for feeding mothers, for easy and convenient feeding. Also called feeding bra, they have flaps in the cups that are attached to the strap. These flaps can be unclasped from the strap for feeding and then clasped later on. Some have a different technology but they all follow the same principle. Nursing bras give the support and shaping you need even while feeding. All our nursing bras are made of 100% cotton ensuring perfect hygiene.
Q. How do I know what size nursing bra to buy?
A. To find the right nursing bra for you is to get accurately measured. You can take the help of a professional at a shop or can measure yourself at home.
Measuring you to get the right fit
Step1: Find your band size - To do this, you must measure yourself around by placing the measuring tape around your back, under your armpits, and above your breasts. Exhale fully and round the measurement to the nearest inch. If you got an odd number round off to the nearest even number.
Step2: Find your cup size - By wearing a non-padded bra, using a tape you must measure around your bust at the fullest point. This would be your bust size. After measuring you must subtract your band size from your bust size to get the cup size.
The current bust size can give you a right fit but they will increase to one cup size bigger when the milk comes in.
Q. How much does your bra size go up during pregnancy?
A. The size and shape of your breasts will change during pregnancy. Every woman will remain different and the band size will increase from 2 to 4 inch high as well as the cup size from 2 to 4 sizes high during pregnancy. The band size can increase from 34” to 40” maximum during pregnancy and the cup size can increase from B to E size. The cup size will further increase after delivery when your milk first comes in. You should measure your breasts every three weeks during pregnancy to find out whether the size has increased or not. You will need to change your bra size multiple times throughout your pregnancy. So it is ideal to invest in 3 feeding bra each at 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimester. For every woman, the change and growth of breast size will differ and they do go back to normal once you stop breastfeeding.
Q. Can I wear an underwire bra while breastfeeding?
A. Apart from the general complaint about underwire bras which is that they cause pain in the breasts, there are some other concerns for breastfeeding women. So, underwire bras are not recommended during breastfeeding. This is because the underwire can resist blood flow and produce blood clots. This in turn hinders the milk production which again causes clogged ducts. Oops!
But women prefer to wear an underwire bra during this period because the breasts begin to sag. This is totally understandable. So instead of shunning the whole idea of an underwire bra, you can wear it occasionally. Just. Occasionally. Which means you can wear it once a week for not more than six hours. This is no calculated time but just an approximated one, because wearing it occasionally but for long hours won’t make much of a difference. Have a safe and happy motherhood!
