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.
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.
Stage 2-Optimized Nursing Bra:
When to wear it: The Back At It Bra is perfect to wear all the way through pregnancy, all-day in Stages 2 and 3, and beyond. It can be worn in short windows during Stage 1 as well, but be mindful to refer to our guides to optimize breast health during this 0-3 month postpartum window when the risks of complications are highest.
No matter what stage you are in, if you are lactating you should always go back to a Stage 1 bra or no bra at night as it is optimal for breast health. In addition to resetting your breasts after a full day in a Stage 2 bra, the overnight period is typically when breasts are most full in Stage 2.
IBCLC Guidance: Stage 2 Bras reintroduce support while still prioritizing stretch and are designed to combine both comfort and functionality. These bras are meant to complement your Stage 1 bras for when you want to reintroduce a little bit more support and wear a bra that feels like a non-nursing bra.
Did you know that many of the most common breastfeeding issues are linked to the bras we wear?
It is true! 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.
