Post Baby Bra Shopping

Posted by Brasnyc on 1/22/2015

Pregnancy can be a wonderful thing; there is nothing that will ever compare to the months you develop a life inside of you.  Your body will go through change after change, and that can be a happy and scary time.  While you are pregnant, the changes your body goes through are new and exciting but the after effects on your body can be disappointing.

After you give birth, you realize that your body is not the same as it was pre-pregnancy.  Diet and exercise can get you back to your old weight but your body is forever changed.  You can be lean and toned or soft and round but your hips, buns and breasts will likely change shape permanently.

It's not uncommon for women to drop a full pre-pregnancy bra size after having a baby.  You probably know that those full and glorious mid- and post-pregnancy breasts are temporary but probably didn’t realize that your pre-pregnancy C cups may be B cups afterwards.  Another thing that can happen is the sag.  Your full and firm breasts aren’t nearly as perky and proud as they once were.

Bra shopping after having a baby can be a challenge.  You know what size bra worked prior to pregnancy but your breasts are different so when you are bra shopping, take these few tips into consideration.  The right size bra should have an under-band that is snug and horizontal across your back.  The wires at the front should sit flat at the breastbone, and sit around your breast tissue, not on the breast tissue.  Your breasts should be fully enclosed in each cup and there should be a smooth line where the cup ends.  You don’t want your breasts spilling out or the cups of your bra wrinkling or gaping.  Cleavage should be purposeful and sexy, not haphazard and sloppy.  Finally, the bra straps should be secure, but not tight. You should be able to run a finger underneath the straps without too much difficulty.
