Maternity / Nursing bras are special bras that give extra breast support for pregnant and lactating women and offer comfortable breastfeeding without removing the whole bra. This can be achieved with specially designed bra cups that have flaps, which can be opened to expose the nipple. This style of bra is designed with fuller cups and manufactured with soft fabric and wider shoulder straps for a comfortable fit.
It is not recommended to wear a regular style bra while pregnant or lactating as they may not give the extra support and may place pressure on the breast which could increase the risk of blocked milk ducts and infection.
The trained staff at You Really are Beautiful can advise and fit you in a maternity bra from Cake Maternity and Triumph.
