9 Nursing Bras That Actually Support Your Boobs & Don't Cost A Fortune

To say that breastfeeding changes your breasts is a laughable understatement. For most women, their "nursing boobs" are a few cup sizes larger, much firmer, prone to leaking, and of course, in need of more support than their pregnancy and pre-pregnancy boobs. The trouble is, finding nursing bras that actually support your boobs is usually easier said than done, regardless of your breast size.

Speaking from experience, a good nursing bra needs to be easily accessible, comfortable, and able to adjust to your fluctuating milk supply throughout the duration of your breastfeeding journey — not an easy task for a mere piece of clothing. Although the perfect bra might seem like the things your dreams are made of, there are a few bras on the market that stand above the rest and will put your search to a halt.

Whether you're looking for underwire-free bras, sports bras with extra support, or regular old t-shirt bras that prevent sagging, finding a bra to support your "milk jugs" can make your breastfeeding experience a million times more comfortable. Luckily, there's a nursing bra for every size and preference, because no mom should have to sacrifice her comfort (or her favorite bra) to breastfeed.
