How is a maternity bra different to an everyday bra?
A maternity bra will adapt to your changing body to give you extra comfort during the delicate time of pregnancy and nursing - when you need it most. Medela Maternity & Nursing Bras are wireless and seamless to be as comfortable as possible to the delicate skin of a pregnant and nursing mum. They also include clips for full drop down cups - making nursing more practical, and are wireless so as not to compress your growing breasts.
When should I start wearing maternity bras?
We recommend you start wearing a maternity and nursing bra during pregnancy. Many women experience breast changes in early pregnancy – in fact, it’s often the first sign you’re pregnant. Surging hormones and a shift in breast structure mean your nipples and breasts may feel sensitive from as early as three or four weeks. Some mums-to-be have tender breasts during pregnancy right up until the birth, but for most it subsides after the first trimester which is often a good time to switch to a maternity bra. During this period in fact, your regular bra can get uncomfortable and you will need to look for a bra that is soft to the skin and can adapt as your breast grows. Our maternity & nursing bras are made of Adaptive Stretch™ material that grows with your changing body from pregnancy through nursing. Use our size chart to find the right size of your next nursing bra.
How long I should wear a maternity and nursing bra?
There is no time limit to how long you can wear a maternity and nursing bra. Medela Nursing Bra feature Adaptive Stretch™ which makes them comfortable and supportive throughout your journey from pregnancy till nursing. Many mums have told us that they get so used to the comfort of our bras, they don’t want to let them go – so don’t be surprised when you grow to love them!
When should I check my maternity bra size?
During the 2nd trimester you may notice that your breasts are growing and you may get uncomfortable in your regular bra. We recommend as soon as you are experiencing this you move to a wireless and seamless maternity & nursing bra. All our bras feature Adaptive Stretch™ material that grows with your changing body from pregnancy through nursing.
How many nursing bras should I need?
You should keep in mind that a nursing bra might need to be washed frequently so we recommend you have enough to wash and wear in exchange. We have a wide offering of bras to fit different needs. Check out our Keep Cool™ Sleep Bra with no hooks and eyes, plus a crossover nursing feature. If you need more support during the day, you might find that the Keep Cool™ Breathable Maternity & Nursing Bra will offer you that gentle support. If you want to have extra support you can opt for our Keep Cool™ Ultra Breathable Maternity & Nursing Bra.
Are these nursing bras comfortable enough to sleep in?
You can wear a nursing bra to bed as long as it is comfortable for you. During pregnancy and nursing the breast grows and you might want to have a little support even when sleeping. Our Keep Cool™ Sleep Bra is designed with minimal seams and no hooks, so nothing disturbs your skin while you sleep. It has a crossover function to allow for easy access for nursing during the night. Another benefit to wearing a bra for sleep is that you can also wear breast pads to avoid any leakage marks on your clothes.
