Finding a bra that fits sounds simple enough. But it's harder than it seems - statistics show that 8 out of 10 women are actually wearing the wrong size bra. And finding the right fit only gets trickier as your body changes throughout pregnancy and nursing.

But don't worry. our site is here to help you find bras for every stage of your pregnancy and breastfeeding experience. We'll make it the process as simple and comfortable as your bra itself will be.

We’re here to help

Comfort and support. That's what you want in a bra. It wouldn't hurt if it looked great, too.

You probably have lots of questions about how to find a bra that will contain, support, lift, and shape your bust as your breasts grow and change throughout pregnancy and nursing.

We're here to help you find a bra that feels as good as it looks. Our Bra Fit Guide has the answers to make your shopping experience simple and successful.

How your breasts change

Even before pregnancy, your breasts change with your lifestyle. Your cup size changes as you gain or lose weight or start or stop an exercise program. So it's no surprise that breast tenderness is often one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. Your breast tissue is beginning to grow.

You may experience this growth as a feeling of fullness, or you may find that you need a larger cup size, or several larger cup sizes, during the course of your pregnancy.

Every woman is different, every pregnancy is different, and your breasts will change in a way that's unique to you. You may find that your cup size continues to increase throughout your pregnancy, or your breasts might grow during your first trimester and then not increase in size again until the very end of your pregnancy.

As your belly gets bigger, the measurement of your bra band will also increase. You will probably go up one or two rib band sizes during the course of your pregnancy.

Then about 3 days after you've given birth, your milk will "come in", and you may find that your cup size goes up again. These fluctuations will settle down after about 6 weeks of nursing. As you establish a breastfeeding routine, your cup size will decrease and your rib band size will begin to return to pre-pregnancy measurements. You will probably stay at about your pre-pregnancy rib band size, but up one cup size until you finish breastfeeding.

When to buy

You will know when you need a new bra. Your breasts may feel swollen early in your first trimester, or you may not feel a big difference until your fourth month.

Listen to your body. Comfort is key, so if your old bra feels uncomfortable, it's probably time for a new one.

A good rule to follow is that your new maternity bra should fit you on the tightest hook when you buy it. That way you can loosen it, or even buy bra extenders as your breasts continue growing. You can also buy a pullover bra with a flexible band.

Many bras are made to fit you throughout pregnancy and nursing. If you decide to buy a separate nursing bra or bras, your 36th week of pregnancy is a good time to make the purchase. Unlike your maternity bra, your nursing bra should fit you on the loosest hook when you buy it, because your rib cage size will begin to decrease after you give birth.

How many bras do I need?

The number of new bras in your closet is really up to you. A common rule of thumb is to always have 3 to 4 maternity or nursing bras on hand so you always have a clean, dry bra available.

A good suggestion is to purchase 2 to 3 maternity/nursing bras that you can wear out and about, and 1 or 2 sleep bras that you can wear at home and to bed.
