Nursing bras are the perfect foundational clothing for expectant and new mothers. Providing comfortable support for changing bust lines prior to birth and the necessary accessibility and appropriate structure for breastfeeding, nursing bras make the transition from pregnant woman to nursing mother easier.

In order to help women choose the right nursing bra, Belly Dance Maternity carries a range of brands offering a number of styles (such as strapless and racer back) and colors (including white, black, blush, ivory, nude, and charcoal), as well as stylish patterns and sleep bras. Well-made, from a variety of blended, lightweight fabrics, such as cotton, spandex, silk, and bamboo, that provide flexibility and breathability, these nursing bras are long-lasting, as well practical, and many are seamless. Because of the attention to details, they are virtually invisible under clothing and expand and contract as needed to support each woman’s individual shape at each stage of pregnancy and nursing. Many of the brands even offer plus and double plus sizing.

In preparation for the birth of the baby, stock up on a variety of nursing bras for daily wear, as well as comfortable sleeping options. A number of nursing bras offer underwire for extra support and molded or lightly-padded cups to help hide nipples and nursing pads. All of the nursing bras at Belly Dance are designed with comfort and breastfeeding-ease in mind, many with snap-down straps or clips engineered for discrete nursing and one-hand accessibility. Invest in nursing bras that will transition with your body and your baby’s needs.

Q and A

When should I buy nursing bras?

We recommend buying nursing bras two to three weeks before your due date. However, just buy one or two before the baby. You can wear it in the hospital and then grab some more later when you know what works best for you.

Why are there so many different nursing bra options?

Like your pre-pregnancy bras, there are different bras for different occasions. We carry a wide variety, whether you are looking for something a little sexier or something to sleep in comfortably.

Are there any cute nursing bras on the market?

Absolutely, just because you are nursing doesn’t mean you should sacrifice style. We carry pretty and feminine nursing options.

Roughly how many nursing bras should I have?

There’s no specific number to shoot for, but plan to have several so you aren’t stuck in a pinch in between laundry loads.

How does nursing bra sizing work?

The majority of our nursing bras are sized from S to XL. Our team will be happy to help you find the perfect fit for you.
