Finding the right Nursing and Pumping Bra

Welcome to my Motherhood Bra Guide! Being a Mama means buying lots of things for your new cutie pie. Many times, we put our own needs aside. Today I am sharing reviews about 3 Nursing and Pumping Bras I found and tried on Instagram. One of the best things you can invest in is a bra that you love for this new season of life. If you are nursing and pumping, normal bras will quickly become an annoying thing and it can be overwhelming selecting a nursing and pumping bra from the growing selection on the internet. Below I will be sharing my thoughts on the ones that I’ve tried in hopes to make the selection easier for you! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. * I will continue to update as new bras come in!

For reference, here are my measurements.



The first thing I look for is support. Since my breast are on the larger side, I need support! Something that drives me crazy is when you bend over to grab something and your ladies just pop right out! So when I’m reviewing nursing and pumping bras, I’m looking for support that allows freedom of movement.

Ease Of Use

For nursing bras I’m looking for one handed open and close. For pumping I’m looking for openings that are compatible with flanges from different styles of pumps.

Sleep Friendly

Comfort in sleep is important to me. For ladies with larger breast, it’s quite annoying to wake up with one of your breast no longer covered. Because of that, this category I’m looking for coverage and support while sleeping on my side.

Coverage / Modesty

Not everyone cares about coverage and modesty, especially with undergarments but this is still something important to me. For nursing bras, I would like to still feel covered. I want to be able to prepared just in case I need to feed in public.

Things To Consider

Please keep in mind that these are my preferences so these things may not bother you like they bother me!

Sweat and Milk – The Nursing Sports Bra
Nursing Bra Only

Venice High Impact Full Coverage Nursing Sports Bra (Camo)

Size Ordered : XL

Pumping : This specific Bra doesn’t work for pumping but the brand does have pumping bra’s available. (Check them out here)
Ease of Use : Easy, one handed use for clips. Nice cross back. Took a few times to figure out the best way to put it on but it’s pretty easy now.
Sleep Friendliness : I feel comfortable sleeping in this bra.
Comfort : Although this bra is a Sports Bra I enjoy wearing it on a daily basis in casual clothing.
Coverage/Modesty : Full Coverage. I love that my large breast aren’t spilling out. I feel confident to work out in this bra without a t-shirt and wouldn’t feel uncomfortable if someone came in.
Things To Consider : I like the padding but for some it may be a bit too much as you can sometimes see it through your shirt.
