If you choose to breastfeed after having your baby one thing you will need are
good fitting breastfeeding bras. There are several different factors to consider
when trying to find a good breastfeeding bra.
As most women who have had
children know, your breasts get at least a cup size bigger during pregnancy.
Even if you do breastfeed, after the baby is born your breasts will go down
some. In order to fit your bra correctly, do the following:
Measure high above your arms above the breast to determine bra size. Then
round your measurement up to the next even number. You will then measure the
fullest point of your breasts. Subtract that number from the first number you
got. If the difference is 2" you are a B cup, 3" you are a C cup, 4" you are a D
cup and so on.
Above all your bra should be comfortable. At this point fitting your
breastfeeding bra is not necessarily about looks. Though there are a variety of
stylish breastfeeding bras for you to choose from. Convenience is also another
issue that most women consider when choosing a breastfeeding bra.
For comfort most women choose cotton for their bras. Some doctors recommend
not using under wire bras because they have been known to clog milk ducts.
Plenty of women have found that they prefer the under wire bras and have had no
problems with them. Choose a bra that you can open and close with one hand,
because that is what you will doing a lot of.
