If you have big boobs, chances are breastfeeding your baby hasn't made things easier on your girls. Whether you're a size D, a size H, or somewhere in between, finding a bra that supports your breasts and makes nursing comfortable is easier said than done. But finding nursing bras for women with big boobs that aren't skimpy bralettes or tiny pieces of fabric that look like they'd fit your baby is not only possible, but recommended for your own comfort and safety.
According to the lingerie brand Panache, choosing a bra that is too tight can cause problems with your milk flow and, in severe cases, cause mastitis or a blocked milk duct. Conversely, if your bra is too loose, you won't have the support you need to feel comfortable and nurse confidently.
It may seem like a small thing, but finding the correct size and style of bra for your daily life is one of the best decisions a nursing mom can make, both for her confidence and her ease in nursing her baby. Whether you've always had big breasts or are adjusting to your new breastfeeding boobs, a new bra designed for your body type will work wonders.
