Simple guide to sizing

Something important to anticipate during and after pregnancy are the many changes that will affect your bra size. Let's walk you through what to expect as we look at a pre-pregnancy-size of 34B.

3 Months Pregnant:

At 3 months, you'll start noticing many changes to your body, including your breasts and ribs starting to pronounce themselves Your 34B may feel a bit tight. You're moving from a 34 to 36 and becoming a C cup.

We recommend: Original Nursing Bra (S+), Body Silk Seamless (Small), Essential Nursing Bra Tank (36 B/C)

6 Months Pregnant:

At 6 months pregnant, you're not only glowing but your belly is more pronounced, and your breasts and rib cage both feel bigger. You're now a 36C.

We recommend: Original Nursing Bra (S+), Body Silk Seamless (Medium), Essential Nursing Bra Tank (36 B/C), Bliss Nursing Bra (36 B/C), Sublime Nursing Bra (36 B/C)

9 Months Pregnant:

At 9 months pregnant you're radiant, and almost ready to deliver. Your breasts may begin to feel a bit puffy and tender the last few weeks, and your ribs may feel very pushed out. You are closer to a 36D now, but not for long!

We recommend: Original Nursing Bra (S+), Body Silk Seamless (Medium), Essential Nursing Bra Tank (36 D/E), Bliss Nursing Bra (36 D/E), Sublime Nursing Bra (36 D/E)

3 to 4 days after you've given birth:

It's now 3 to 4 days after you've given birth. You've been breastfeeding since birth, but today your breasts are significantly bigger and heavier. You've increased at least a full size in the cup (to a E(DD) or more) but feel relief in your rib cage now that the baby is born. You're also wearing a nursing bra to bed for greater comfort.

We recommend: Original Nursing Bra (S++), Body Silk Seamless (Medium), Essential Nursing Bra Tank (36 D/E), Bliss Nursing Bra (36 D/E), Sublime Nursing Bra (36 D/E)

A breastfeeding rhythm has been established:

You and baby are happily working on your breastfeeding relationship. Around 10 to 12 weeks after birth your breasts have relaxed in size and weight and you could easily wear a 34D.

We recommend: Original Nursing Bra (S+), Body Silk Seamless (Medium), Essential Nursing Bra Tank (34 D/E), Bliss Nursing Bra (34 D/E), Sublime Nursing Bra (34 D/E), Allure Underwire (34 D/E)
