Are these bras supportive?
These styles offer minimal support by design. Traditional support can be restrictive and compressive. In Stage 1 of breastfeeding, when engorgement and fluctuations are most common, it's important not to have any acute points of constriction to avoid issues like clogged ducts and mastitis.
What does Stage 1 of breastfeeding mean?:
We worked with an IBCLC lactation expert to break breastfeeding into three Stages, based on your body’s needs across the journey. Stage 1 covers the early days of feeding, months 0-3. For a more in-depth explanation on The Stages of Breastfeeding, click here to learn more.
Can I wear these bras in all stages?:
Yes. Because it has zero points of constriction and offers super-stretchy coverage, it’s safe to wear 24/7 through every stage, even for sleeping. And our ultra-soft material makes it comfortable enough that you’ll want to, from pregnancy to postpartum and beyond.
Is sizing different during pregnancy?:
No. This bra was designed with lots of stretch to flex as your ribcage and cup size expand during pregnancy and early breastfeeding, so our size guide is the same for pregnancy and postpartum. That said, if you’re in between sizes while pregnant, size up. If you’re in between sizes in the first 6 months of breastfeeding, size down.
