So how does the sizing work? Well, rather than picking, for example, 36E you might pick a Medium instead. Each size (Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large or Extra-Large) covers several different sizes.

It is recommended, that, if possible, you avoid underwires during your nursing months. So you may be pleased to know that this bra is wirefree. This bra is suitable for both pre and post birth.

The Chi nursing bra also has an internal A-Frame which will give you additional bust support. It is not padded.

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!!
