Best Nursing Bras for Breastfeeding & Exclusive Pumping Moms
Finding a comfortable nursing bra for breastfeeding or pumping is tough. If I’m being totally honest, finding ANY bra to be comfortable is damn near impossible, hah.
As a mom who breastfed and pumped in between (due to low supply), I had my share of trial and error with many, many nursing bras.
Luckily for you, I narrowed down my TOP Nursing Bras and compiled them into a couple of categories (you might see the same bra in a couple of categories, that just means it’s legit the BEST nursing bra):
- Best Nursing Bras for Breastfeeding
- Best Nursing Bras for Exclusive Pumping
- Best Breastfeeding and Pumping Bras
- Best Nursing Sports Bras
- Best Nursing Bras for Large Breasts
- Best Sleep Nursing Bras
Before we jump in, you might also be wondering when to get a maternity bra, nursing bra or pumping bra – I would say if you even think you plan to breastfeed, get at least ONE to pack in your hospital bag.
They are made much differently than traditional bras to provide not just extra support, but lots of comfort while wearing. However, with anything, there’s always some duds and this list does not have any duds on them!
Best Nursing Bras for Breastfeeding
1) Kindred Bravely’s Simply Sublime Maternity & Nursing Bra
The Simply Sublime Maternity & Nursing Bra is one of my favorite bras because it’s very supportive, comfortable, seamless, and has removable padding! Perfect for those last couple of months of pregnancy and postpartum!
It provides a very nice fit with a little lift to make it the PERFECT full coverage nursing bra! They also have a TON of sizes to choose from, unlike many others.
2) Kindred Bravely’s Lace Nursing Bralette
Their Lace Nursing Bralette is SO cute! As much as I find nursing bras way comfier than regular bras, sometimes it just feels nice to wear a bra that actually looks cute.
This bra, unlike the others, is a simple pullover bralette. It has wide straps providing great support with a gorgeous lace design all over. It’s also wire-free so guaranteed comfort (and cuteness) is what you’ll be getting with this bra!
Best Exclusive Pumping Nursing Bras
1) Bravado Maternity Clip & Hands-Free Nursing Bra
This clip-on hands-free bra was a lifesaver for us since I nurse and pump. Even if you don’t nurse, you can still use this bra! It clips onto ANY nursing bra – talk about easy!
The best part of this bra is the design of the flange holes. It’s snug enough so that your pump flanges actually STAY IN PLACE while you pump! YES PLEASE!
2) Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bra
If you don’t mind having to put a bra on each time you pump, this is my go-to pumping bra.
In addition, it has removable straps, however, I don’t find them comfortable. You could also wear it strapless, but I find it slides down as the day goes on, making it uncomfortable for all-day wear.
Overall, it’s very affordable and does the job if you need just a basic pumping bra to get the job done!
Best Breastfeeding and Pumping Bras
1) Kindred Bravely’s Sublime Pumping and Nursing Bra
This is the ULTIMATE all in one, hands-free nursing bra that is surprisingly comfortable!
It features an underwire free design with dual clips, making it comfortable to wear and easy to use!
Not to mention, it minimizes you from having to strap on a pumping bra to go about your business each time. Just wear one bra, all day long solving all of mom’s problems!
I have 2 pairs of these bras and I will continue to use them until they wither away with time LOL!
2) Kindred Bravely’s Sublime Pumping and Nursing Tank Top
This AMAZING pumping & nursing tank tops is one of the latest items added to Kindred Bravely’s online store!
With how fast their bras sell out, there’s no doubt this bad girl won’t sell out right away!
If you’ve tried any of their bras, you can bet this is will be just as comfortable, but since it’s a tank you can use it for sleep, running errands and more!
Best Nursing Sports Bras
1) Motherhood Maternity Clip Down Sport Nursing Bra
I was quite surprised by this nursing sports bra because of the mixed reviews online
As a mama who loves working out and lifting weights, I was looking for something with good support, but easy to clip down for nursing when needed.
This bra checked off all the requirements I needed AND is one I’d consider pretty affordable too!
2) Cadenshae High Impact Sports Bra
Cadenshae was kind enough to send me some pieces of their apparel line to try out and review, this bra being one of them!
Being a mom with a larger chest AND who works out pretty vigorously, having high impact support is a must!
However, it was important to also have a bra that was breathable and EASY to snap down to nurse my little dude when needed. This bra checked off all the major points I was looking for!
Best Nursing Bras for Large Breasts
1) Kindred Bravely
Most of Kindred Bravely’s bras have busty sizing available. Making the search for the perfect nursing bra SO much easier!
Often times you’ll find the perfect bra, but the cups are too small or the cups are perfect and the band is too tight. You’ll never have that issue with Kindred Bravely. I always suggest checking them out first if you’re a busty mama!
2) Motherhood Maternity Seamless Nursing Bra
This seamless nursing bra is very comfortable and has a great design for moms with larger breasts. It provides comfortable support, no annoying wires, very soft fabric, and full coverage!
Best Sleep Nursing Bras
1) Kindred Bravely – French Terry Racerback Nursing & Sleep Bra
This was my VERY first purchase from Kindred Bravely – their French Terry Racerback Nursing & Sleep Bra. I had ordered it to pack in my hospital bag, but when I tried it on to make sure it fit, I realized how soft & comfy it was! I ended up using the bra every day 2 months before our son was due and ordered another as a backup #sorrynotsorry!
2) Best Budget-Friendly Nursing Bra Pack — Cakye Maternity Nursing Bra
This my personal favorite if you’re looking to be ultra budget-friendly. Cakye makes this 3 pack set of Maternity Nursing Bras that are overall comfortable and durable.
I don’t find them to be the most comfortable, but I do wear them during my ‘lazy days’ & they are convenient for both breastfeeding and pumping in my opinion!
I hope this helped you explore all the options of nursing bras out there so you can find the BEST ones fit for you!
