When shuold I buy a Nursing Bra

You may no longer feel comfortable in the fit of your pre-pregnancy bras,
but you should only consider buying a nursing bra only in the third
trimester of your pregnancy. Your breasts should stabilize by the
6th to 8th month of your pregnancy. We do not recommend waiting
until your baby is born to buy your first nursing bra.

Immediately after birth, your breasts will most likely surge in size.
Establishing a regular feeding schedule will balance the supply of
milk in your breasts. This takes about 2 weeks time. Your breasts should
re-stabilize to about one cup size larger than your pre-birth or maternity bra size.
You will again be able to wear your the nursing bras you have purchased
for breastfeeding comfortably.

If you do order nursing bras after the birth of your baby, our general
recommendation is to buy a nursing bra one cup size larger from the current
size you are wearing. However, every woman's body is different.
This is only a guideline.
