To feed your baby, you not only require a proper spot along with a comfortable position but also, most importantly, a good nursing bra, which can no doubt make feeding your baby so much easier than usual. Although there are a number of bra types that are supportive, only a handful of them allows proper access to breastfeeding, depending on the brand and style.

Therefore, to make it easy for you, we have listed 6 such bras that will make nursing easier for you.   

1. Underwire nursing bras

These are among the most widely-used nursing bras and are designed in a way that can give you the required support. Also, they make you feel like you are wearing a regular underwire bra. However, these are different from normal bras because of the presence of clips that allow you to open or close the bra cups for easy access to breastfeeding. However, a number of women avoid buying such bras because of the belief that they cause mastitis or blocked ducts, which is not true when it comes to the latest designs of these bras.      

2. Soft cup nursing bras

Soft cup nursing bras are the most popular type of breastfeeding bras, as these make the task of breastfeeding quite effortless while keeping your breasts supported comfortably. Such bras let you lower the cups from their hook closure near the shoulder straps easily.They also have fixable/adjustable closures for different breast sizes.

3. Nursing sleep bras

Although these bras are not of the same supportive level as the aforementioned bras, they are seemingly soft and comfortable to breastfeed at night. Overall, these bras are designed solely for those mums who prefer comfort over standard support.

4. Tank top nursing bras

These bras are a combination of a tank top along with an inbuilt bra. The bra is built into a tank top and allows access to breastfeeding via nursing clips present on them. The bra makes it easy for you to easily wander around your house, or even better, you can wear them under your favourite blouse.

5. Breast pumping bras

Breast pumping bras, as the name suggest, is capable of making it convenient for mothers to do other tasks while pumping breast milk. These are designed to replace all the other types of nursing bras or even can be worn over one. Such bras allow you to pump with the help of any good quality electric breast pump, and hence, allow you to do other work around the house.

6. Sporty nursing bras

For mothers who like to get all sweaty at the gym, this bra would work best for you. These wireless bras are designed for active mothers. They are made of the combination of nylon and spandex and are therefore very much preferred by the mums who are outgoing and like to participate in outdoor activities with their babies.
