recommendations for bras during BF

Posted by on Nov. 9, 2011 at 7:29 PM

Hello!

I'm expecting my first child in February and will be breastfeeding assuming all goes according to plan.  I wear an odd bra size (I was a 32F before pregnancy) and have never been very comfortable in bras without underwire.  However, it's been mentioned in every breastfeeding class I've taken that wearing a bra with underwire can contribute to clogged ducts.  Does anyone have any suggestions for bras for me?  Thanks!!

I am a 38DDD and I love my nursing tanks.  They have been the best and most comfy for me.

I'm not a large size, but i am two different sizes...a large B on the right and small D on the left.  I wear the Sports nursing bras from Motherhood.  They are the most comfortable bras i have ever worn! :)

I have always worn underwire. You just have to be VERY picky about fit. I didn't get very many clogged ducts, never had mastitis, and I always had a huge oversupply. So you can use underwire, just wait a few weeks and try to get fitted.

I where regual bras, underwire and all & only get clogged ducts occasionally (like if ds overnights at gmas and i fall asleep w/ bra on) But, I am rather small chested, so idk if that would effect anything....
