To say that breastfeeding changes your boobs is an understatement compared to what actually happens. To put things into perspective, your boobs will likely double (or triple) in size while breastfeeding and then progressively shrink and then inflate day after day until you stop nursing. Once you stop, your breasts might be the same size and shape they were before you conceived. One of the worst parts about breastfeeding is spending hours shopping for nursing bras that you only wear for a few months and then never again. As a result, finding nursing bras that grow and change with your body is almost impossible, especially since no one knows exactly how their breasts will change post-nursing.
But, as tricky a task as nursing bra shopping may seem, breastfeeding bras that will fit your body once you're not breastfeeding anymore do exist — you just have to do a little bit of digging to find them. So instead of throw out your nursing bras when you stop breastfeeding, buy ones that will fit you before and after you become a feeding machine for your baby. This will save you the hassle of having to bra shop when your nursing boobs turn into non-nursing boobs. Not sure where to start? Here are a few options to get you going.
