Hotmilk nursing and maternity bras
Hotmilk nursing bras are not only stylish – but are both functional and comfortable!
Our bras come with one handed maternity clips allowing for ease of breastfeeding, 100% cotton lining (allowing the bra that contacts your body to be comfortable and great against sensitive skin), and great support. Seam friendly cups offer the ultimate in comfort and support, but without any compromise on sophistication or style.
Breastfeeding bras have 6 hooks at the back allowing you to extend the bra out with your pregnancy and clip back closer after you have given birth. Hotmilk follows global recommendations that a nursing bra should not have hard metal wires, we either use no wires at all, or flexi-wires allowing the bra to move with your body.
Why a nursing or maternity bra?
Nursing bras offer added features. They have the added feature of a clip, which some maternity bras may not have. This allows for easy fuss free feeding of your infant. There is no reason why you can’t wear a nursing bra during your pregnancy and you may find that after giving birth this nursing Bra may fit you well to breastfeed in.
What is my size?
Your body and breasts will change through each trimester, so you may require 2 - 3 different sizes throughout your pregnancy. A perfectly fitting bra should not be too tight, and sit beneath your bust with the band flat across your back.

When should I buy a nursing bra?
Unsure of when you should make the switch from your standard bra to a nursing one? Each pregnancy is different, so the answer will depend on a number of factors. Keep reading to find out when you should make the switch.
Finding the right bra fit
As with all bras, finding the right fit can be a challenge. It is the same process as with standard bras, the band under your bust should sit flat across your back not riding upwards. Avoiding any cutting in on your breast tissue is important. Bras which are too tight can restrict the flow and amount of milk produced – so it is important to change to to a Maternity/Nursing bra after you feel like your non-maternity bras are uncomfortable and no longer fitting or offering the right support.
You may find your cup sizes change as your pregnancy progresses, every pregnancy and woman is different, however you may find you need to go up 3-4 cup sizes and increase your band size as your baby grows. Further changes can occur during the nursing cycle, when your milk flow comes in you may increase in the cup size before your bust size settles again.
