This bra was designed to meet you perfectly in the moment when you are finally ready to get back to feeling more like you. 


Meet The Back At It Bra, a Stage 2 nursing bra that looks and feels like a pre-pregnancy bra.  Now you can get back to feeling like yourself again faster, while still optimizing breast health.  

Made with an IBCLC lactation expert, the Back At It Bra provides easy one-handed clip-down nursing, mid-level support, and a chic shape that looks and feels great under clothes. Crafted in a powdery soft and smooth, OEKO-TEX certified fabric, this bra features a wide band and our signature five-row extended back closure, enabling the bra to flex with your bodily fluctuations without creating points of constriction.

With the Back At It Bra all-day nursing comfort is available with the stepped-up support you crave, all while optimizing breast health and letting you get back to being you.

Details & Features

Thoughtfully Designed

  • These nursing clips are easy to use with just one hand and audibly snap when unclipped and clipped securely in place.
  • The OEKO-TEX certified material feels like butter on skin, is cool to the touch, and has a subtle luster for sleek style.
  • Made with a premium fabric that stretches to comfortably flex with breast fluctuations throughout your day with light support and no compression.
  • A soft V-neckline with balanced coverage and a smooth material that looks great under clothes.

When can I wear a Stage 2 bra?

  • Perfect for all-day wear in pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, Stage 2, Stage 3, and every day after. You can also wear for shorter windows (under 3 hours) in Stage 1. Designed with an IBCLC to optimize breast health in these times.

Why aren't pads included in a Stage 2 bra?

  • In Stage 2, we don’t recommend fixed or structured padding. During this time, the risk of experiencing common breastfeeding ailments is slightly reduced, but not completely gone. If you are looking for coverage that padding provides, we highly recommend utilizing solutions like nursing pads. Our Low Profile Breast Pads were designed exactly for this – because they’re not fixed against your breast, they provide mobility that is necessary when experiencing engorgement.

Our Straps

  • This grosgrain strap is designed to look minimal, but like all of our bras, we increase the width for sizes L-XL sizes, ensuring additional support without digging into skin for a range of body shapes.

How to choose a bra that optimizes your breast health.

Months 0-3 Postpartum

In Stage 1, you will likely experience major fluctuations as your body adapts to increasing levels of milk production. This is when breasts are most likely to get engorged and the associated risks of clogged ducts and mastitis is highest.

WE RECOMMEND

All-day and sleeping:
No bra or a super stretchy, non-compressive bra, like The Everything Bra or The Effortless Bra

For pumping or more support:
You can wear a more structured bra—like The So Easy Bra, The Back At It Bra, or The Do Anything Bra—for 3 hours or less. In Stage 1 you’re at greater risk for complications like plugged ducts and mastitis, which is why we recommend wearing more compressive bras – like pump bras – for only a few hours. The idea is that you want to avoid becoming engorged, or even full of milk, while wearing a compressive bra. In Stage 1, that happens more frequently, hence the 3-hour limit for wearing compressive bras during this period.

Months 3-6 Postpartum

In Stage 2, your breasts are still adjusting to lactation, but fluctuations are less extreme. This means the frequency of engorgement decreases so you can introduce a bit of support in your all-day bra.

WE RECOMMEND

All-day:
You can introduce more shape and support as long as it still stretches with fluctuations — like The So Easy Bra or Back At It Bra.

For sleeping:
If you are lactating, you should always go back to a Stage 1 Bra — like The Everything Bra or The Effortless Bra — or no bra at night when breasts are most full.

For pumping or more support:
You can wear a more structured bra — like The Do Anything Bra — for 4 hours or less. In Stage 2 you’re still at increased risk for complications like plugged ducts and mastitis, so we recommend wearing more compressive bras – like pump bras – for several hours at most. The idea is that you want to avoid becoming engorged, or even full of milk, while wearing a compressive bra. In Stage 2 that happens more frequently, hence the 4-hour limit for wearing compressive bras during this period.

Months 6+ Postpartum

In Stage 3, your breasts have adjusted more and fluctuate less. The fat content of your milk also increases and the rate of your baby's growth slows, so feeding may be less frequent. With that, the risk of complications is much lower (but not zero), so it's safe to wear a bra with more support during the day.

WE RECOMMEND

All-day:
You can wear a more structured bra — like The Do Anything Bra — as long as you pump or nurse every 3-4 hours to avoid engorgement.

For sleeping:
If you are lactating, you should always go back to a Stage 1 bra — like The Everything Bra or The Effortless Bra — or no bra at night when breasts are most full.

Pre-Lactation

While pregnant, the bra you wear comes down to comfort. Only once you are lactating does your bra impact breast health. Until birth, wear what feels good.

Bodily Tip: During pregnancy, the balance of support and stretch in our Stage 2 bra — The So Easy Bra — is an ideal combination to maximize comfort through your bodily changes.

Did You Know?

Most common breastfeeding issues are linked to the bras we wear. But wearing a bra that you like shouldn't expose you to features that can negatively impact milk supply, or potentially increase risk of clogged ducts and mastitis. That's why we created a system for selecting bras that makes it easy to optimize for breast health (check out The Stages of Breastfeeding for choosing a nursing bra that's right for you), and designed all of our bras together with a lactation consultant.
