Nursing bras have come a long way in the last few years. Long gone are the boring, utilitarian bras of the past that forced us to sacrifice personal style while breastfeeding. Many lingerie companies have transitioned to lifestyle brands, creating stylish nursing bras that mimic pre-pregnancy lingerie looks and disguise cutting-edge technology. Pretty, fashion-forward nursing bras now seamlessly transition through pregnancy and nursing, and keep up with today’s active and trendy moms.
While your body certainly goes through major changes through pregnancy and nursing, your lingerie style doesn’t have to. Keeping this sense of style goes a long way to helping breastfeeding moms feel like themselves. And when a nursing mom feels confident and attractive, it’s a good thing for baby too.
Whether you prefer lacy plunge styles or smooth and sleek looks, there’s a stylish nursing bra suited for your unique personality!
