The Best Plus Size Nursing Bras for Women

The last thing you want to worry about as a new mother is your nursing bra. Your nursing bra should be comfortable, come with easy access for your baby, and offer support, which can be easier to find in theory than in reality - especially if you’re a plus size mom. Luckily, our selection of plus size maternity and nursing bras, which extends up to a 56DD, is the best there is. 

How to Choose a Nursing Bra for Full Figured Women

When you’re shopping for your nursing and maternity bras, you’re going to want to keep in mind the qualities that make a bra comfortable. Because that’s really the most important part of choosing a nursing bra as a new mother; your comfort. To help you as you shop for the best plus size maternity bras for you, here are two helpful tips to think about before you make your purchase.

  • Wear your correct bra size: It’s sometimes recommended that you should add one band and one cup size to your normal bra size when purchasing a nursing bra. This, however, is not the right choice if you want a pregnancy and maternity bra that fits you well. Especially with full figure sizes, it’s best to wait until you’re far along in the pregnancy to measure your chest. This will give you the most accurate size for your plus size nursing bras. Don’t forget to measure your bra size again when you’re ready to shop for regular plus size bra styles again.

  • Fabric makes a difference: When you’re wearing a bra towards the end, or just after your pregnancy, you’re going to want to pay attention to the material it’s made out of. Materials like cotton or lightweight microfibers are going to feel light against the skin and will be a great choice for a maternity bra.
