    Before you begin

    • Get a measuring tape, a notepad and a pen.
    • To measure your true shape, wear an unpadded bra (not a compression bra or a sports bra).
    • Stand up straight and relaxed, with your arms at your sides.
    • If you can, ask someone to help you measure. If you’re on your own, measure yourself in front of a mirror.

    Step 1

    Band Measurement


    Wrap the measuring tape around your back and underneath your armpits. Check that the tape is on a bit of an upward angle and positioned directly under your armpit. The tape should lie flat and parallel on the hook and eye closure of your bra. Pull the tape snug—you want it to feel tight, but not constricting. Read the measurement without removing the tape. Write down the number.

    Hint: If your measurement falls between even numbers, round up. For example, a 33” would become 34”. If you are just above an even number (for example, 32.5”), then round down.

    Step 2

    Chest Measurement


    Wrap the measuring tape around your back and place it on top of the fullest part of your chest. Be sure to push the measuring tape in between the center of your breasts (it should be touching the space between your breasts). Check that the tape is horizontal when wrapped around your body. The tape should be lying flat and parallel on the hook and eye closure of your bra. Hold the tape loosely in place. Look down and read the measurement, then write it down.

    Hint: For more accuracy, ask someone to help you take this measurement.

    The Right Bra

    Buying any bra can be challenging but buying a maternity and nursing bra with all of the changes that come with pregnancy and breastfeeding, choosing a nursing bra can seem downright confusing. That’s why Bravado is here to help, with nursing bras tested and approved by moms.

    Wondering how many bras you need? Most women like at least three: one to wear, one for the wash and one backup ready in the lingerie drawer (babies are mess geniuses). We’ve got a wide variety of comfortable, high-quality and innovative bra types to suit your style and stage.

    Three months pregnant: Best styles

    When you’re in the newly pregnant stage, your breasts are often tender and subtly—or dramatically—fuller, and probably the only part of you that actually looks pregnant. Hellooo, hormones. Every woman's body changes at different rate. If your current bras aren’t comfortable anymore, consider a stretchier bra that will grow with you throughout your pregnancy.

    Six months pregnant: Best styles

    In your second trimester, your breasts continue to grow (thanks to increased blood flow and expanding milk glands), and you’ll most likely be craving more support than your regular bras can offer. Choose bras that offer comfortable stretch and support to make your days that much more comfortable. One of these bras are guaranteed to become your favorite and in some cases you'll be able to wear the bra right through until the baby is born and beyond. Note: Bravado also has a special converter to turn your bra into a "regular" bra when you're finished nursing.

    Nine months pregnant: Best styles

    Because your rib cage has expanded to accommodate your baby, your band size could be one size larger than it will be after you deliver. Your cup size has increased one-to-two sizes from pre-pregnancy, and could go up one more size (really!) in the first days after your baby is born. Bottom line: buy bras where the band fits comfortably on the loosest setting, so you can tighten it after your baby is born, and with stretchy cups that can handle the changes in breast size.

    Three-four days after giving birth

    Your changing body has one big finale: Your milk comes in during the first few days after giving birth. This can be when your breasts are at their largest, usually one cup size up from your third trimester. Other changes include a higher body temperature and tender nipples, so for breathability and comfort, opt for cotton bras with flexible cups. Most moms feel more comfortable sleeping with a bra at this stage so be prepared with a comfortable and well-fitting bra for sleep and everyday. Bravado bras offer key features that will help you to establish breastfeeding including cups that drop right away so that the baby has skin-to-skin contact and access to the breast, plus, an easy, one-handed clip.

    Three-to-four weeks and onwards

    After you and your baby get used to breastfeeding, your breasts will adjust too, going down one cup size from when you were nursing a newborn. You will likely tighten your bra band as well as your rib cage goes back to normal. After breastfeeding has been established, around 6-8 weeks, you can choose whatever bra you prefer, including a professionally fitted underwire nursing bra. Remember that your bra should not be uncomfortable or tight—constriction can lead to plugged milk ducts and breast infections.
