Nursing bras recommendations?

9 months pregnant and looking to buy bras that are both breastfeeding and pumping friendly. Need padded ones since I'm very pointy usually and wires optional.

WFH after maternity leave but will be back in the office someday soon too. Planning to get the Elvie pump for daily use and the Elvie Catch for handling leaks.

How much should you size up from your pre-pregnancy size when ordering nursing bras?

I liked the sia ones on Amazon. They were cheap and comfy!

Also they worked the best with my willow compared to a few other brands.

I'm a huge fan of the Kindred Bravely nursing bras. I was able to hack it to use with my Spectra breast pump. I'm not sure if they'll work well with the Elvie. I wish I could have used something like the Elvie but they don't make flanges in my size.

I recommend buying a variety of bra sizes. I've had four kids and I can't really say that there is a good rule of thumb in determining what size you need. My cup sizes ranged from 1-3 sizes bigger.

M1 this is GREAT to know! Thanks!

I love the bravado ones best for like around the house nursing. If you need a ‘real’ bra, the Auden ones at target worked for me. But they’re way more of a pain to nurse in than the comfy bravado ones. Padding gets in the way. Non padded ones will pull aside or fold down way more comfortably. As long as you’re WFH, I’d just stick with the comfy ones. Recommend getting 2 sizes snd see what fits. You don’t know how much your boobs will grow and what size will be most comfortable on your rib cage.

Bravado makes good nursing bras. I wore them throughout my pregnancy and now postpartum. Definitely get nursing pads and get a pump bra if you plan to pump. (I hate pumping so I got a cheap one on Amazon to change into when pumping is unavoidable.)

Auden nursing tanks at Target. They worked well with my Willow pumps and i still wear them post BF journey

I think it’s just the Walmart brand... last time I was there they were kind of near the women’s active wear. To be clear it’s the tank like the Auden tank. I actually prefer the Walmart one because it has just a little more space around the bottom. Helpful as my body gets back to normal. 😁
