What is a Nursing Bra?

Are you about to give birth, or have you recently given birth? Are you looking for a bra that's convenient to wear while breastfeeding your new infant? Want a bra that will be comfortable for sensitive, swollen breasts? Take a look at our nursing bra collection, and let us help you demystify the process of shopping for a nursing bra!

Nursing bras are designed to make life easy for new moms who want to breast feed their babies. Nursing bras are specifically designed with cups that open so you can breast feed conveniently. Some of our nursing bras feature inner slings to hold the breast in place even with the cup open, which makes it easy to close everything up when you're finished and are great from a support standpoint.

Our premium nursing bras include features like quick clip one-handed systems for opening and closing your bra cups while holding your baby, or markers so you can easily keep track of which breast you've used for your last feeding.

Nursing bras are designed to be comfortable, with soft fabrics that won't irritate sensitive nipples and swollen breasts. Many of our nursing bras stretch to accommodate growth in breasts as your milk comes in, and some feature pads or pockets for pads to absorb any leakage while you're breast feeding.

A few good nursing bras are a must-have for new moms!
