Nursing moms have a slightly different kind of need, when they are nursing their baby or babies. They need that extra support, as the milk makes the breast bigger, so most women need a larger nursing sports bra than they would ordinarily wear.
The tissues are much more sensitive, so a sports bra gives that extra padding, as they are more cautious about bumping them. They will have the peace of mind, when wearing a nursing sports bra. Camis or tank tops are wonderful to wear alone or under a shirt or blouse, as they have a shelf under them to help keep everything lifted. These could even be worn to bed, as they are so comfortable.
A nursing mom is always concerned about leakage, so be sure to buy two, when you find one that fits you well. The cotton nursing sports bra are ones that are cooler, so will not be a breeding ground for bacteria, which can be a problem for nursing moms. Not only are they cooler, but they are also easy to wash and dry, which means a lot when you are a busy mom looking after that precious baby.
Many of the nursing sports bras have a flap that is easily opened when the time comes for feeding. If you are used to wearing an underwire bra, these are available in a nursing bra also. They have a soft plastic, rather than wire and are covered with a soft material to keep the skin from chafing. This bra will have extra support for those breasts filled with all that milk.
There is an endless variety of nursing sports bras to choose from, the over the head type, ones which do up at the front, some at the back. Then there are the kind where the flap will come down from the top, or to the side, or in the middle.
It is your choice, because you are the only one who knows what would be best for your lifestyle. Just because you are nursing, does not mean that you can not do the same sport that you did before. With a good nursing sports bra, you will be out there as before.
