A well fitting bra makes all the difference in the world, especially during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Your changing body makes even your favorite bras feel uncomfortable.

Frequently asked questions:
Did you know that one of the main things we started Waddle n Swaddle for was for bra fittings? You don't have to guess your size or be uncomfortable. We often get asked when a mom should be fit for a maternity/nursing bra. After 10 years of bra fittings, I have found these rules are good guides:
1. As soon as your uncomfortable in your current bra (don't keep sizing up in "regular" bras). YES we can accommodate in most instances for long term sizing, some exceptions occur in large cups.
2, When you are 34 weeks pregnant if you have been comfortable in what you have.
We suggest 3 bras/tanks prior to birth so that you have a clean bra or tank available in the early weeks when laundry is a challenge.
Why are fittings important?
1. A poorly fitting bra can cause clogged ducts
2. Lack of support can cause both upper and lower back pain for mama
3. I find as an LC a comfortable mom makes all the difference for attention to breastfeeding.
