How to choose a good nursing bra for breastfeeding? And why a nursing bra is so important? A good nursing bra is a must for a successful breastfeeding experience, and it makes your “heavy” breast more comfortable. One of the ways to make your pregnancy and nursing life easy is to get a suitable and a proper fitted bra.
​Why a good nursing bra is a MUST during your pregnancy and maternity period? During pregnancy period, our rib cage size is changing from time to time; it is getting bigger along with the growing belly. After your birth or labouring, the milk supply will increase dramatically, which a regular bra may not be as comfortable because the nursing breast tends to change sizes throughout the day. A fitted nursing bra will makes you feel amazing and it provides your body a great support at the same time.
Most of the women experience the changes of breasts size; they are larger when full up with milk; and much smaller after breastfeeding or breast pumping. A good nursing bra is designed with stretchable fabric, and they accommodate well with the changes of our breasts size, and this enables movement in the breast as it produces milk. A seamless bra is much recommended, and make sure the stretching of the clothes is able to change or adapt with the changes of your breast and cage size.
A clasps that enable you to use one hand to discreetly open the cup is very important, this will allow a very quick access for breastfeeding when your little baby is hungry. When you are looking for a nursing bra, make sure the clasp is easy to open just by using one hand; it will be easy to manage while having another hand holding your baby. 
Other than that, remember to get a sleeping nursing bra, a sleeping nursing bra with crossover design is very much recommended. This design is great for night time nursing or just for lounging around at home. It is very convenient and comfortable; just simply pull the clothes under your breast, to have your baby breastfeed.
An anti-bacteria and anti-odor material is also recommended, when milk production ramps up, you might experience leakage or something even worse when your baby thrown up on it. A real anti-bacteria nursing bra makes you feel refresh in every of your maternity and nursing day!
If you have a limited budget, avoid buying plenty of Non-suitable bra, get a few right and comfortable bra, this will makes your pregnancy and maternity life easy! A good bra will be able to adapt to your breast size changes.
