Sexy Lace Nursing Bralette

Nursing bras are one of those breastfeeding essentials that no breastfeeding mom can live without. They are designed to be used right from pregnancy when your breasts start to get larger and more sensitive.

This guide contains everything you need to know about nursing bras, along with some of the reasons why every mommy needs one.

What is a nursing bra? 

So, what exactly is a nursing bra?

Well, a nursing bra is a unique type of bra that is designed to offer extra support to pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. They make breastfeeding your little one a whole lot more comfortable for you. This is because most of them feature a special design that allows you to quickly open them up with one hand, making breastfeeding tasks super easy.

There are many different types of nursing bras. From everyday nursing bras (like our exquisite Lace Plunge Nursing Bralette) to pumping bras (moms love our Lace Hands-Free Pumping Bra) to extra-supportive nursing bras and everything in between, there is something to suit every type of mom.

If you have been looking for a simple yet stylish bra that will not only provide you the comfort you need but also have you feeling pretty and confident, it' s not hard to see why our Lace Plunge Nursing Bralette is the obvious choice. 

Why Every Mom Needs a Nursing Bra

A nursing bra is crucial for every mom. The nursing bra you pick should fit your breasts' size and lifestyle. Although most mommies don't consider a nursing bra an important part of their lives, it can provide tons of benefits to every lactating mother.

Here is why every mommy needs a nursing bra: 

1. Nursing bras will accommodate your expanding breast size

Your breasts will undergo several changes during pregnancy and the postpartum period. These can occur irrespective of whether you are breastfeeding or not. Having a nursing bra ensures you have something that will keep accommodating your changing breast size. A nursing bra won't compromise on your support and comfort.

The perfect choice for this is a soft, supportive, and strong nursing bra. Get one that isn’t flattening or restrictive. This makes it suitable for both larger and smaller busted mommies. Our Lace Plunge Nursing Bralette is especially good for breastfeeding mothers since it is comfortable and versatile, allowing you to breastfeed anywhere.

2. It will give you a lovely profile

Your breast size tends to remain the same size during the third and the eighth month of pregnancy. There is some noticeable expansion of your rib cage as the baby continues to grow in the womb. Post-birth, your rib cage will contract slightly.

With a nursing bra, you' ll get to enjoy a beautiful profile even as your body undergoes all these changes. 

3. Nursing bras are comfortable

Lactation can be rather uncomfortable. Your breasts constantly feel full and you' re always leaking for some reason. Well, with the right nursing bra, you get the extra support you need (even at night) and you get straps that don't slip off and nursing pads that are always in the right position. This way, you' ll be super comfortable without having to worry about leakages! 

4. Nursing bras make nursing easier

Nursing bras are specifically designed to make nursing easier. They feature cups that fold down, clip down, or pull aside, often with one-hand access. Regular bras make it difficult to access the breasts for breastfeeding. With a nursing bra, you can easily breastfeed your little one anywhere at any time.

5. They offer flexibility

Nursing bras have a design that can accommodate your breasts' size changes. The use of fabric enables the nursing bra to expand and contract when necessary. Additionally, they also provide a comfortable feeling in exercising and sports, allowing moms to work out without experiencing discomfort.

6. Nursing bras make you feel confident

Even breastfeeding moms want to feel confident and look sexy, right? Being a new mom can be especially challenging since your body goes through a lot of changes, not least of which is gaining lots of extra weight. With a nursing bra, you’ll get to accent the best features of your body (hello curves!), allowing you to feel that extra dose of confidence. 

7. No irritation

Nursing bras are designed with a concealed stitch and seaming across the nipple. When you are breastfeeding, your nipples become extra sensitive and chafe easily. Regular bras don’t take this into consideration, so they have seams and stitches across the nipple. Additionally, nursing bras also have a soft lining that provides a feeling of softness, support, breathability, and comfort.

8. They provide a natural shape to the breasts

A well-designed nursing bra will beautifully hold your breasts in position, giving them the support they need and preventing them from sagging. It will also smooth out any unflattering regions, giving you that perfect silhouette. 

9. Nursing bras are essential for good health

Ordinary bras can pressure your nipples, preventing the milk from coming out of your breasts. This blockage can cause mastitis, a painful condition for breastfeeding mothers. Nursing bras are comfortable, and they can easily support your breasts, ensuring that the flow of blood within your breast tissues is not interfered with. This is essential for your overall breast health.

10. Nursing bras are relaxing

During pregnancy and as you breastfeed, your breasts increase both in size and weight. Ordinary bras can be irritating and tiring to use because a lot of them have rough and thin straps to support your breasts. The best nursing bras have wide and strong straps that are super comfortable, supporting your breasts as they grow in size and weight. Also, nursing bras have a wide surface area that allows the straps and pads to remain in position. This spreads out any pressure you may experience, easing fatigue and helping you feel relaxed. 

11. Nursing bras are convenient

Nursing bras have convenient claps, making it easy to unhook and hook your bra within a second or two. This ensures you can access your breasts without a problem whenever you need to breastfeed.

12. They are great for support

As your breasts grow and become heavier, you need all the support you can get. The right support is essential for your milk glands to function properly. Nursing bras have a soft material on their inner lining, which keeps sensitive breasts comfortable while holding your breasts in position. This not only supports the extra weight but also plays a role in proper breast milk production.

Final Thoughts

Every breastfeeding mom needs a nursing bra. They not only help you stay comfortable as you breastfeed but also help prevent common breastfeeding issues like mastitis. Plus, a good nursing bra will have you feeling confident as you breastfeed, all while maintaining your natural breast shape post-birth.
