Nursing bra fit tips

by leadinglady on May 02, 2018

It is very important to make sure that your nursing bra fits well through all of your nursing stages.  In the first weeks of breastfeeding you will probably notice the biggest changes in your breast size, sometimes by even several cup sizes.  Please do NOT try to “squeeze” your fuller breasts into a bra that is too snug.  Added pressure or tightness on lactating breasts could cause plugged ducts or even mastitis which is a breast infection.  Make sure you have enough room in the band to expand it to another row of hooks on the clasp, if needed.
