Pregnant women may choose soft cups during their pregnancy because the breasts are constantly changing and often become sensitive and sore. An underwire bra can further irritate the outer breast tissue, causing discomfort.
If you are not ready to purchase a special bra, then opt for a soft cup bra with extra support during this time of transition. Purchase special pregnancy or nursing bras for optimal comfort and functionality. Nursing bras feature convenient clips that make nursing easy and many open with one hand, allowing you a free hand to cradle the baby.
