Do I need a nursing bra while pregnant?
Many women find wearing a pregnancy or nursing bra gives them the extra comfort and support they need during their later trimesters. It’s not always easy to know just how much your breasts will grow, as every woman is different. What’s certain is you’ll want to be as comfortable as possible, and wearing specially designed maternity underwear such as the Medela Comfy Bra can help.
Can I also wear my Comfy Bra once my baby arrives?
The Medela Comfy Bra is designed to fit your shape whatever stage you’re at – whether you’re pregnant, a new mum, or have been breastfeeding for a while. The seamless bra made from a super-soft, lightweight fabric with an extra-stretchy under-bust band that adapts to your changing shape. In fact, this nursing bra is so comfortable you won’t want to take it off!
How the Comfy Nursing Bra makes breastfeeding easier
Of course, another reason for choosing a maternity bra is that it makes it much easier to breastfeed! This comfortable nursing bra has drop-down cups with one-handed clips that open up the full breast, maximising skin-to-skin contact during feeding – this has lots of benefits for you and your baby. It also means that wearing the Comfy Bra speeds up the breastfeeding (or pumping) process, wherever you are.
A nursing bra with a smooth and comfortable fit
As well all the practical features of the Comfy Bra, its cups have removable foam inserts that gently shape your bust for a smooth fit – so unlike some maternity underwear, it won’t look unnatural under your clothes.

Taking care of your Comfy Bra
Washing this comfortable nursing bra is quick and easy: like all Medela maternity underwear, it can be popped in the washing machine. Simply follow the care instructions provided on the pack and launder with similar colours at 60°C (140 °F).
