It’s best to try to wait until as late as possible in your pregnancy to buy a nursing bra – ideally until after your 36th or 37th week of pregnancy. While it’s great to plan ahead, there’s no way of telling what size you are going to be after your baby has been born so you may well need to re-assess! Don’t forget that we offer an express delivery service, so we can get bras to you very quickly if you need a different style or size - or if you have an unexpected early arrival!
If you choose to breastfeed we’d advise wearing a non-wired nursing bra for at least four weeks after the birth of your baby. After that you can stick to wearing non-wired styles or you can wear a nursing bra with flexi-wires (unless you have been given specific medical advice to avoid wires). Some women prefer nursing bras with flexi-wires as they find them a little more supportive and that they give better separation and shape. Once you stop breastfeeding and your milk has gone, or the size of your boobs has stopped changing so much, you can choose to return to underwired styles.
If you need any help or have any questions at all, we’re here for you so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re happy to talk to you or see you as often as you need advice. Our Customer Services teams are trained to fit nursing bras and you can talk to us on the phone, by text or video chat on our website, or by email.
