When to Wear a Nursing Bra

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
  • At night, when you're sleeping

Nursing bras are often simply more comfortable to wear than a regular bra if you've recently given birth - even if you're not breastfeeding. 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!
