  • Comments Off on Product Review – Anita Under Wire Nursing Bra

One of the more famous nursing bra brands, Anita creates the Under wire Nursing Bra that gives comfort and shaping for new moms. It has under wired lace cups which are also molded to give your milk-filled breasts the support they need. Each seamless cup has the patented Kwikklip that allows you to open and close one side at a time easily with one hand. What makes the Anita Under wire Nursing Bra stand out from all other nursing bras is the unique Anita Memo, a movable pink marker that helps remind you which side was last used for breastfeeding.

The Upside: Breastfeeding moms will love the look of this Anita nursing bra – it doesn’t look like your ordinary nursing bra! The lace cups add a touch of style and femininity. The under wires offer support to your breasts which may feel heavy during these sensitive months. And it gives your breasts some lift and separation, unlike bras that don’t have under wires.

The Kwikklip feature is very helpful for breastfeeding moms as it allows them to open the cups one at a time – this means more privacy while nursing your baby. Plus it gives them ease since the Kwikklip makes it easy to open and close the clasps with just one hand while you’re holding your baby with the other. And because of the Anita Memo that you can shift from left to right, moms will always have a reminder which side your bundle of joy last fed on.

The Downside: Since the Anita Under wire Bra has lace cups, it doesn’t absorb excess milk as much as a usual nursing bra with thicker cups do. It’s a bit too transparent compared to ordinary nursing bras. You can’t wear it under thin shirts without worrying about it showing through.

Moms may also feel hesitant about wearing nursing bras with under wires, fearing that they may disrupt the flow of milk. They may also feel limited about its sizing as it only goes up to a cup F size; women with larger cup sizes would have to find another bra. And at almost $60, the Anita Under wire Nursing Bra seems to be a bit pricey for some.

The Verdict: Moms who are keen on breastfeeding their baby may want to invest in the Anita Under wire Nursing Bra. Not only does it make breastfeeding a breeze, but it also gives new moms the support and comfort they need especially during these sensitive months. It’s stylish in looks, too – unlike the other nursing bras sold today. It may seem a bit expensive for a bra, but the benefits you and your baby will get will be worth it.

  • Comments Off on Nursing Bras – 5 Tips on Choosing the One for You

Are you a new mom who is thinking of breastfeeding your baby? If so, then buying a good nursing bra is one of the first things you should do. But what exactly is a good nursing bra?

If you’ve never bought one before, you should remember that your nursing bra should be comfortable and easy to use. Here are a few tips that will help you find the perfect one for you.

o Your nursing bra must give your baby easy access during feeding time. This means you should get one that’s easy to fasten and unfasten even with just one hand. Or you can choose a bra with stretchable cups if you feel you’re having a hard time with the clasps or front snaps.

o Choose a nursing bra with a comfortable fit. It should be supportive enough for your breasts. Don’t buy a tight nursing bra. This could cause breast infection, which can cause clogs and will make you unable to breastfeed your baby. If you’re choosing one with underwires, take note of how it may constrict the breast tissue – this might affect the flow of milk from your breasts or might cause clogging.

o When possible, choose a nursing bra made of breathable material. Cotton is a good choice. Also avoid bras that keep the moisture in. This may cause bacterial growth – and eventually will cause problems while nursing your baby. If you’d want to wear breast pads under your nursing bra, make sure it has moisture-wicking properties so your breasts stay dry even if you’re lactating.

o Remember that your breast size changes before and after you’ve given birth. So make sure to find the right size first before rushing to buy a nursing bra in the store nearest you or online. Depending on the style and manufacturer, they may have different measurements or sizing options. Get fitted first before buying, so you won’t experience problems during breastfeeding.

o Don’t choose a nursing bra based on price alone. Many moms would think of buying many cheap bras only to find out that they wear down easily. Not that you should buy an expensive nursing bra; you should buy one that’s of good quality so it won’t cause – or cost – you any problems in the long run.

Take note of these tips to help you in choosing the perfect nursing bra for you. When you’ve found the style that fits you and your baby, buy at least three or more of them – one to wear for the day, one in the laundry, and one ready in the drawer.

Breastfeeding should be a wonderful time to feed your baby. Getting a nursing bra that’s easy to use and comfortable will relieve you of all the trouble during this special moment as you bond with your little bundle of joy.

  • Comments Off on Measuring Yourself For a Nursing Bra

For some if not most women getting measured for a bra is not something they enjoy doing or want to have done. What most women don’t know is there is an easy way to measure yourself so you don’t have the embarrassment of having some stranger do it for you.

Did you know that during your pregnancy you will increase one full size or more around the ribs and in the cup? You will also increase at least one full cup or more 48 to 72 hours after birth? Here are some easy to follow steps to measure yourself for a nursing bra.

Step 1: Find your band size

To do this properly you need a paper tape measure and you need to be wearing your current bra that is unpadded. Take the tape and measure around your chest and under your arms. Make sure you have it snug but not to tight. Now breathe normally and make sure it feels comfortable. Remember that bra sizes are only in even numbers so if you measure 37 you will need to go with a 38. You don’t want to go down because they will be too tight and it will be uncomfortable to wear.

Step 2: Find your cup size

You need to wear your bra for this measurement as well. You need to put the tape measure over the fullest part of your breasts, right over your nipples. Don’t pull it to tight when you measure. Take this measurement and subtract your band size from it. The difference, in inches, will determine your cup size. So if your band size is 38 and your cup size is 43, the difference is 5 inches. To get the right cup size you will need to look at a cup chart.

Here are some tips that will help you find a good fitting bra.

1. Position

Position is the most important thing when you are looking for the right nursing bra. You want to make sure that your breasts fit in the cups properly. The straps are not meant to provide support.

2. Hooks

Your bra should fit comfortably on the middle row of hooks. Most bras have three sets of hooks and you’ll want to fit yours so you can use the middle set and have the most comfort.

3. Bulge

If your bra fits correctly, your breasts to be completely covered. If you see breast tissue you will want to try the next bigger cup size but, keep the same band width.

4. Pinch

You should not be able to pinch material from the cup. When the bra is brand new you may be able to see a slight pucker at the seam but this will go away as the cup naturally shapes to your breast.

5. Bottom band

If you run your finger along the bottom band and it doesn’t move easily you will need to increase your band size by one. If your finger moves too easily you will need to decrease your band size by one. It needs to fit comfortably and snug not too tight and not too lose.

Using this measuring strategy and these tips the next time you purchase a nursing bra, you will have a great fit and no embarrassment. You will feel better knowing your bra fits perfect and you will be comfortable wearing it as well.
