What’s the difference between a maternity and breastfeeding bra?

Our bras are created for use across all stages of pregnancy. By designing with versatility in mind, you will get use out of our maternity garments after the birth of you bub, as well as during your pregnancy journey. 


When should I buy my maternity/breastfeeding bra?

The right time to be fitted for a maternity bra varies from woman to woman and there is no right time for everyone. The breasts begin to prepare for lactation quite early in pregnancy however every woman is different and some women will outgrow their usual bra size earlier than others.

Generally speaking, most of the changes to the breasts have occurred by around 4 months (16 week gestation) and so this can be a good time to buy yourself a maternity/breastfeeding/nursing bra if you haven’t needed to earlier.

All Matchy Mumma maternity/breastfeeding bras come with extra hooks and eyes to enable you to adjust your bra as needed. 


What size should I order? 

All of our garments are designed with maternity and nursing in mind, so we recommend you select your usual size unless you have gone up or down in sizing since falling pregnant. Please have a look at our size guide here or contact us here and we will be more than happy to help you find the right size for you.

To find your right size bra firstly, take a measurement under your bust, making sure the tape measure is firm against your rib cage. This will give you your band size. If the number is an odd number, round up to the next even number.

Secondly, take a measurement around the fullest part of your bust, again making sure the tape measure is firm around your body. The difference between the band size measurement and this measurement will give you the cup size.

For example, if your under bust measurement is 34 and your bust measurement is 39, you have a 5 inch difference between those two measurements, so we’d suggest you are around a 34DD (or a 12DD).  


Cup size difference in inches

A - 1

B - 2

C - 3

D - 4

DD - 5

Please note that for the measurements to be as accurate as possible we suggest taking them without a bra on.


How many bras do I need? 

We suggest that you need at least 2-3 bras. One to wear, one in the wash and one in your drawer ready to go if and when you need it.


What are the common fit issues to avoid when purchasing a nursing bra?

  1. If the back band is too tight or loose. You should be able to comfortably fit two fingers between you and the band.

  2. If the straps are too tight and digging into your shoulder or too loose and slipping off. Our Nursing bra and Cami both have adjustable straps for a comfortable fit.

  3. If the cups is too big and gaping off the body, or too tight and restricting the breast tissue

If you are worried about the fit of you garments, please note that for products purchased online from Matchy Mumma we accept returns for change of mind within 60 days from date of purchase. Read more about our return policy here.
