Now that I am nursing what size Nursing Bra should I buy?
Your breasts size changed quite a bit during your pregnancy but now the best way to choose the right size is to measure your breast during your 26th week of pregnancy and add 1 cup size and 1 band size to your bra. So, if at 26 weeks your bra size was 36C, you will probably now fit into a 38D. After nursing for about 8 weeks your band size is most likely decrease to your pre-pregnancy size but you cup size with stay up one size from your pre-pregnancy size.
If you buy your nursing bra before you deliver than your bra should have enough space to run two of your fingers under the bra band, and your hand should fit inside the cup to allow for padding. Make sure you lift your hands over your head and if the cups come up over your breasts or the band curves at the back then try on a bra with a larger band and/or cup size.
