Purchasing a nursing bra isn’t simple, according to Shana, co-owner of Tryst lingerie, 465 Eglinton Ave. W. There are 150 bra sizes! According to this professional, “80 per cent of women wear bras that don’t fit them properly.”
Pregnant women should go for a nursing bra fitting in their seventh to eighth month. It should fit on the loosest clasp, to be tightened as your stomach shrinks, and there should be room in the cup for breast enlargement. Try these for comfort and support:
>> Nummies, with underwire and lining, are most similar to non-nursing bras, but aren’t recommended for the first several months of nursing. Available in black or nude; sizes 32-38, A-DD; $65.
>> Emma Jane is Tryst’s bestseller. Supportive and made of cotton, this pretty bra has eyelet detail and comes in black or white; sizes 32-42, B-G; $68.
>> The microfibre Anita bra comes in black or nude; sizes 32-42, B-E; $70.
