If there is one thing that changes after having a baby… it’s your breasts.
Chances are you don’t quite recognize them anymore. Breastfeeding initially means your breasts are a lot bigger than they used to be and probably leaking milk on a regular basis.
Once your babies grow a little, the engorgement might end, but that just means they turn into a couple of slightly deflated balloons. One thing that is a MUST is a good quality nursing bra, and we’ve scoured the internet for the best ones according to real breastfeeding moms!
These nursings bras have actually been recommended by breastfeeding moms. We will break down the pro’s and con’s of each.

Medela Maternity and Nursing Comfort Bra
Let’s start with the standard. When it comes to anything breastfeeding, Medela is the brand that comes to mind for most.
This bra is basic, but comfy.
You can grab them on Amazon for a little over $30, or grab one on your next Target run.
The Medela nursing tanks are pretty bomb too!

This design is very similar, it gets great reviews on Amazon, AND it comes in a variety of colors. (Pretty cute ones too!)
Thousands of moms are currently counting this one as their fav, and comes in sizes XS-XXL.
The pretty colors come with a slightly higher price tag though, $49 on Amazon.
Calling all well endowed and plus sized mamas! This one is for you.
This one isn’t just cute and a bit sexy, it’s also available in large and unusual sizes!
Great for support! This one was so good, one mama bought multiples!
It’s simple, but supportive (and actually not unattractive).
The perfect bra for super active moms who still need access for those nursing sessions.
And… it’s not too pricey, selling for just $19.99 on Amazon.
Only drawback is it is a bit thick for some moms, but for those who don’t want to be able to cut glass with those breastfeeding nips, this might do the trick.
We can personally attest to the comfort of this bra!
When it comes to looks, it does tend to go towards the granny side of sexy, but I didn’t care.
We wore this nearly every day for at least two years before it wore out, making the $60ish price tag on Amazon totally worth it!
AND this particular bra comes in many sizes from 32B to 42H!
(I also just love Hot Milk bras in general, and will share more below)
Wacoal Women’s Nursing Bra
These babies are super cute, and dare we say even a little sexy??? 😍
A bit pricier than others. This option runs for about $65 on Amazon.
BUT – it does go up to some larger sizes, including 38G.
A lot of the reviews say this is the ONLY wired bra a lot of moms have been able to wear comfortably and they totally swear by it.
These definitely seem like they are worth the investment!
