Need to Dine and Dash? 2 Great Maternity/Nursing Sports Bras

Let’s not downplay the extent your body changes during pregnancy and post-birth: you’re growing and nurturing a tiny human, which is AMAZING! One thing you’ll notice is that your breasts will undergo a radical transformation: they’ll get pretty big. Breasts start preparing for lactation early on in pregnancy, and whilst everyone’s pregnancy is different, most women will see changes in their breasts around the fourth month. It’s common for breasts to go up one or two cup sizes, especially if you’re expecting your first child. Because breasts need support, it’s important to find a bra to accommodate this increase in size (and weight!) That’s­­ where maternity and nursing bras come in. They’re designed to provide fuller breast support and reduce discomfort. If your bundle of joy has already arrived, then a nursing bra allows for hassle-free unfastening. Nobody needs to be fumbling around in a panic when baby decides it’s time for breakfast (or elevenses, lunch, dinner, post-dinner snack, you get the idea). For women who enjoy keeping active or are looking to get back into fitness after the birth of a child, it’s vital to find a good-fitting nursing and/or maternity sports bra. Painful conditions such as jogger’s nipple or repetitive trauma are definitely something you do NOT want to be experience, let alone when breastfeeding or about to welcome a newborn. Nursing and maternity sports bras provide careful support and come in a range on styles depending on what type activities you're doing. For those of you who are embarking on the special journey of motherhood, we’ve put together a small guide featuring low to high impact sports bras we’ve carefully selected for expectant and nursing boobydooers. We had our dear friend Guna, (who is expecting her first child imminently) in to try out these bras - so you know they're mum-to-be approved! Guna did some gentle weight exercises and yoga (she was concentrating as it was her first time trying it out!) during our shoot.
  1. Boob design Fast Food Soft Sports Bra
This bra offers support for low to medium impact activities, so is ideal if you're going for a brisk walk or pilates session. It has smart clips to allow for easy breast access when your little one starts feeling hungry. It also features a racer back that provides freedom of movement. boob classifies the support level of this bra as 'firm.' Guna's verdict: "A really comfortable bra and feels quite soft."                       2. Cake Maternity Zest Sports Bra In contrast to the boob Fast Food Soft Sports Bra, Cake Maternity Zest offers a higher level of support and is classed as a 'high impact bra'. This makes it an excellent choice for mums and mums-to-be who fancy going for a jog . Like the Fast Food bra, it also has clips to allow for easy feeding, whilst also featuring a folded edge feeding sling for a secure fit. Guna's verdict: "The straps didn't dig into my skin like I thought they would. I also really love the colour!"
