Having the right bra can make breastfeeding an easier and more comfortable experience, which is why the best plus-size nursing bras offer shoulder, back, and breast support without putting too much pressure on your bust. And depending on your preference, you can choose between wire-free bras or styles with a flexible underwire for more structure.

When deciding between wireless or underwire styles, some nursing experts, like La Leche League International, recommend choosing wire-free bras while nursing because the firm structure of a bra can put pressure on enlarged breasts and may lead to blocked ducts and mastitis. However, if you want additional support, the Australian Breastfeeding Association recommends a bra with a flexible underwire that will adjust to your changing shape. If you go wire-free, you can look for an elastic underband, wide straps, or molded cups to provide support without adding excess pressure.

Given that your body and your breasts can change in size while you’re nursing, each of the picks below has adjustable straps and some stretch. It’s also worth keeping an eye out for a bra that comes with a back extender to help you stay comfortable as your body changes.

Finally, there are a few styles to choose from — including pull-on and hook-and-loop-closure options — so you can find the bra that’s most comfortable for you. All of the bras below have drop-down cups, but for added convenience, some nursing bras are also designed for hands-free pumping.

Scroll on for the best plus-size nursing bras in many sizes, including harder-to-find cup sizes up to M.
