How To Wear It
How to wear it in Stage 3 (6+ months):
- When pumping: Tighten the straps and the hook & eye in the back to tighten the bra and maximize the pump parts suction with your breast
- When done pumping: Loosen the straps as much as possible and loosen the hook & eye in the back so that the bra no longer offers any compression or lift.
- If for some reason you are prone to overproduction and engorgement and you happen to get a clogged duct (even while doing all of this), we’d recommend that you reduce all-day wear until you reach the 6-month threshold.
How to wear it in Stages 1-2 (0-6 months):
- During the first 6 months of breastfeeding, we recommend you loosen the Do Anything Bra when you’re not pumping so it offers no lifting or acute points of compression.
How to insert your flanges:
Flanges and especially the shield on a flange (the part that goes over your breast) come in many different sizes.There are two different ways to insert the flange through the slit in the Do Anything Bra. We've outlined these 2 methods for you below, should you have difficulty inserting flanges.
- Option 1: unclip the front of the bra using the nursing clips. Place the shield on your breast and slip base of flange through the opening. Clip your bra back into place for pumping. Screw on your bottles or pump directly into a freezer bag. This method is especially beneficial if your flange is too large to fit through the slit, if you have silicone rimmed flanges.
- Option 2: with one hand, open the front slit of your bra by lifting one piece of fabric. Slide the shield into the hole, toward the fabric in your hand. Once fully inserted in the first side, pull the fabric from the other side over your flange and adjust to ensure nipple is in the middle of the breast shield.
If you’re using nipple creams, we encourage you to use breast pads to protect your bra from oil stains. Oil based products, such as nipple creams and even breast milk have the potential to seep into clothing. We carry our Breast Pads in a 4-pack and if you want to stock up.
The Do Anything Bra 101
Stage 3+ Optimized Nursing Bra
When to wear it: In maternity, through Stages 1 and 2 as long as you’re pumping and nursing regularly when engorged, and all day long in Stage 3 and beyond.
Fit notes: This is our super-soft moderately supportive bra for nursing, pumping, and doing anything. (For additional support, you can convert the straps to racer-back.)
Guidance from our IBCLC: At the 6-month mark of breastfeeding, you can welcome back more supportive features as you are less likely to have issues such as clogged ducts, mastitis, and engorgement that are often caused by constriction. However, the risks are not gone entirely, which is why the Do Anything Bra has no acute points of constriction.
