6 Nursing Bras That Grow With Your Ever-Changing Postpartum Boobs

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.

1VPL's B Bra

VPL's B Bra, $95, VPL

Although the bra looks like a traditional sports bra, VPL (which stands for Visible Panty Line), designs pieces like their B Bra that are meant to be worn before, during, and after breastfeeding. Their pieces are high quality, durable, and can go with anything.

2Wire-Free Nursing Bra

Wire-Free Nursing Bra, $35, Bare Necessities

The Bare Necessities wire-free bras are a great go-to design that will fit you longer than traditional nursing bras with underwires. This one can fit sizes A to E, giving you the flexibility you need as your body changes.

3Seamless Nursing Bra

The Seamless Lounge Nursing Bra, $30, Love Comma

There's nothing more comfortable — or versatile — than a seamless nursing bra with overlapping sides. These bras don't necessarily look like nursing bras either, so they can be worn well after you're done breastfeeding.

4Fast Food Bra

Fast Food Bra, $49, Boob

Boob is a brand that specializes in maternity and nursing wear that doesn't look like maternity/nursing wear. The Fast Food bra, for example, comes in many styles and colors with fabric that's versatile enough to match your body's changes.

5Soft Cup Bra

Soft Cup Bra, $42, Storq

The Storq soft cup bra has no clips or flaps, and is designed to fit moms of all shapes and sizes. All you have to do to nurse is pull it down. And if you don't have to nurse it's still a great comfortable bra to wear everyday.

6Lightly Padded Nursing Bra

YooToo Lightly Padded Wire-Free Nursing Bra, $45, Amazon

This wire-free nursing bra offers light to medium support, padding for those ex-nursing nipples (you know what I'm talking about), and the look and feel of a "real" non-nursing bra.
