How do you know what size to pick?
Are you pregnant?
Start with your pre-pregnancy size. You may want to consider sizing up if you are in your 3rd trimester, or if you would like a more generous fit.
Are you breastfeeding now?
Select your current size.
Here are some more detailed guidelines on how your body and bra size may change
In your 2nd Trimester?
Be aware that the band size around the 6th month is likely to be close to what you would be after delivery. But you need to leave room in the cups to grow. Unsure what size to pick? Have a look at our “flexible sized”
nursing bras which cover several sizes which are much easier to fit. We have flexible sized nursing bras that should fit you from 30 inch to 46 inch backs, A-JJ Cups. If you happen to be a larger cup that JJ, please see our Royce nursing bras. “Click here for our flexible sized nursing bras.”
In your 3rd Trimester?
Be aware that your band size will decrease after delivery, and should continue to decrease in the first few months of breastfeeding. You should also leave a little room in the cups. Again, at this stage we suggest choosing a “flexible sized”
nursing bra that should remain comfortable as your size changes.
Right after you give birth:
Be aware your band size is likely to decrease in the first few months of breastfeeding. When your milk comes in, your breasts will feel much fuller as well are firmer. During each day that fullness will fluctuate between feeds. Again, during this time we tend to recommend our “flexible sized”
nursing bras, as these should remain a comfortable fit as your body changes.
When baby is a few months old:
Your breast size typically peaks at around 3-4 months. Engorgement (where your breasts can become overly-full and a little painful) can be common. As you continue to breastfeed after the 6th month, your breast size will start to decrease and you should find your are rarely engorged. This is a good time to shop for a traditionally sized nursing bra (for example 36DD) as your size should have settled down by this point.
