Maternity Bra Styles - as part of the women's style series on clothing and fashion by GeoBeats. We are going to talk about nursing bras. Now it is very important that you get the right type of nursing bra at the right time. This is a bra without an underwire, which is very important to have at least two or three of these when you first deliver your baby. You want to take them to the hospital, so you have a nursing bra in the hospital. You want to wear them to sleep in and you want to wear them while you are engorged. Once you get regulated, then you can start wearing underwires but in the beginning you want to make sure you wear soft cups. Something that is very easy to hook and unhook, which this is very easy to hook and unhook. You want to get something that has an adjustable back band, has a lot of adjustments in the back. This is important because your size is going to change, usually drastically, in the first month. So you want to have something that adjusts in the straps and a lot of adjustment in the back. This is the next stage of nursing bras. This is an underwire. You want to wear an underwire after your milk becomes regulated so you get the right kind of support. Your breasts are going to be the heaviest that they ever were in your life and you want to make sure that you always have a lot of support. You want to make sure that your band is very, very snug in the back. That is how you are going to get support. You are not going to get support from your straps so make sure that everything is nice and snug and that your wire starts right where your armpit begins and it goes all the way around your breast and encompasses your breast and lifts it up. If your underwire does not fit properly, it can clog your milk ducts. So it is very important to make sure you go into a store that knows how to measure you and get you in the right size before you buy underwires when your nursing. The next bra is a sleep bra. Now a sleep bra is a bra that you, of course, sleep in. It has no underwire, it is cotton, it is very comfortable. It can move with your breasts getting larger and smaller, which is important. It also has a lot of adjustment. This is just like a little cotton bra that will pull over your head. It has no adjustments in the back. You can sleep in it. It does not give you the kind of shape that you probably want to go out in, but it is certainly a good bra that you could take to the hospital and you could sleep in.
