Would you prefer a supportive and comfortable breastfeeding bra? Why not consider the Freya Chi Charcoal nursing bra? Our customers love this bra as it is so easy to get the right size...
How does the sizing work? Rather than picking, for example, a 36D, you might choose a Medium instead. Each size (Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large or Extra-Large) covers several sizes. During your nursing months your size may change, even several sizes each day! So this bra should fit well as your size changes. This bra goes from a 28B right up to a 38HH.
To find out which size is best for you, please see the table below.
Most breastfeeding advisors tend to suggest that you should, if possible, avoid underwires during your nursing months. So you may be pleased to know that this bra is wirefree. It is also suitable as both a pre and post natal bra.
The clips of this bra are hidden behind the straps. They are also easy to open using just one hand.
The Chi Charcoal bra features an internal A-Frame to help give you additional bust support. This nursing bra is not padded.
So why might you choose the Freya Chi Charcoal nursing bra? We think you will find it incredibly comfortable, and it is very easy to get the right size.

MATERIAL THICKNESS OF CUPS:
We try to rate how thick the cups are of each bra, so you are not surprised by this when the bra turns up! We rate this out of 5, so 1/5 is thin cups, 5 out of 5 is thick. We would rate the thickness of the cups of the cups of this bra as 2 out of 5. Cups are not that thick.
WIDTH OF BRA STRAPS
How wide are the straps of this nursing bra? The straps of this nursing bra narrow as you move away form the cups, so it is difficult to get an accurate measurement of this! Sorry!!
