Top Maternity/Nursing Gear
Posted on 31 October 2019
Why the need to ditch your regular bras?
As a breastfeeding mummy of two for close to 6 years (with a year of gap during my second pregnancy), I have since learn the importance of not having the flesh-digging regular bras during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Not only was it not comfortable, mastitis soon became a close acquaintance. Bras with harsh and rigid underwire are a big No-No as it places pressure on the milk ducts and tissues, which potentially resulted in plugged milk ducts.
I remember clearly now an incident when I suddenly feel such a localized pain in my breast during a meeting with client, to the point of me unable to even hooked the wired bras. Next thing I knew, I was down with mastitis, an infection in the milk duct which causes fever, chills and a host of unpleasant experience.
Regular bras with rigid underwire simply couldn’t accommodate to our growing bump and body as it constricts the growth of diaphragm. A quality maternity and nursing bras on the other hand, allows the bras to have room for the expansion of diaphragm as the lil bun in the oven grows=)
Maternity & Nursing Bras that is Both Comfortable & Beautiful
Comfort is an extremely important factor in selecting the right maternity bra. Maternity and nursing bras with soft cups and increased rows of hooks and eyes are ideal to accommodate the change in breast size. Nursing mummies often find themselves having larger and fuller breasts in the morning and vice versa.
In addition, natural and soft fabrics are not only comfy but it minimized irritation and possible risk of chafing due to friction and sweatiness.
May I add here that beautiful nursing bras and lingerie are as important as the comfy factor? Just as our life experience dramatic changes with the presence and joy of the lil one(s), our beauty and wardrobe doesn’t have to! My mum was quick to remind me of how I soon looked like some disheveled creature and chided me for it. Not only for the visual right of the loved ones, but I soon realized it is more for myself. Women ought to feel feminine, sexy and empowered! Having a wardrobe of plain looking comfy lingerie certainly does nothing to that.
