New moms tend to wear nursing bras for a variety of reasons:
- When you're breastfeeding
- When you want extra support for milk-swollen, sensitive breasts

Some women prefer to wear nursing bras to sleep because milk-swollen breasts can be larger, heavy, uncomfortable and cumbersome in bed. We have a few maternity and nursing bras with super-soft cups and designs comfortable enough to wear even while sleeping, so if you find yourself uncomfortable at night, check them out!
