You’ve just popped a baby out, your nipples are red raw and there’s milk spraying out when you least expect it. Oh the joys of new mummyhood! Breastfeeding can be a walk in the park for some, but for others it’s a difficult journey which takes lots of practice and saintly patience. And then there is the minefield of nursing bras! Which should you choose and why are they necessary?

Nursing bras are a crucially important addition to your maternity/new mum kit for numerous reasons. A good nursing bra will offer comfort and support, a bad one could contribute to damaging the milk ducts and could cause pain or mastitis. Here we look at the main questions we get asked about nursing bras and why it’s SO important to wear a decent one…

Nursing Bras: All Your Questions Answered…

What is the Purpose of a Nursing Bra?

A nursing bra is (as you might gather by the name) a bra that you wear whilst nursing/feeding your baby.  Nursing bras differ to maternity bras as they have easy access to your breasts for feeding/pumping without actually having to remove your bra (or stretch the cup out of shape!). A woman’s breasts will continue to change in size throughout her lifetime, and it is particularly noticeable around pregnancy and post-birth. New mums will notice large fluctuations in breast size as the body learns to regulate its milk supply to suit your baby. Ordinary bras do not have the ability to accommodate the enormous changes which will happen to your breasts while pregnant and nursing so a nursing bra is a must-have for breastfeeding mums. 

It’s important to use a good quality nursing bra for the duration you breastfeed your baby with soft cups or nursing flexiwires with at least 6 rows of hooks and eyes (ordinary bras usually only have 3). The back band of your bra provides 80% of the support, so this is very important. This will allow your bra to have room for the diaphragm and rib cage to expand during pregnancy, and the ability to tighten after the baby is born and it all settles back down again. Nursing bras have clips on the straps to easily access the breast, and some of our new style nursing bras actually use magnets which makes it even easier still!

When Should I Buy a Nursing Bra?

The rib cage expands in pregnancy to accommodate your bulging uterus and the baby growing inside it, and during this time some women can go up 2 or 3 back sizes. For this reason we advise that you come to get fitted regularly during your pregnancy to ensure that you are wearing the correct size wireless or flexi-wire bra right from the outset when you see that little blue line on the pregnancy stick.

You can wear a nursing bra at any stage of your pregnancy (some of ours are so pretty and comfy that we have women wearing them even if they’re not pregnant!) and we advise getting your final nursing bra fitting 3-5 weeks before your due date to ensure that you have something with you to take to the hospital that will fit well and be comfortable from the outset. When you’re packing your hospital bag you can pack everything but the kitchen sink for baby, but sometimes forget you! So don’t forget the essentials you will need, including that properly fitted nursing bra. 

Here at Mish we advise leaving the tags on just in case you are unable to breastfeed and we will fully refund you (as long as it’s unworn and you have the receipts!) should you no longer have use for a nursing bra once baby arrives.

What Size Nursing Bra Will I Need?

Many new mums make the mistake of choosing nursing bras “off the shelf” just with extra room in the cup. We really don’t advise doing this as an ill-fitting cup won’t offer your breasts that much-needed extra support required and it can lead to problems. 

We can’t accentuate enough the need to get properly fitted by a bra fitting specialist to ensure that your nursing bra is comfortable and correctly-fitting. This is important for your health and comfort; two things which all women need to consider and not just when nursing. A good nursing bra will have stretchy fabric on the top of the cup; this will allow for movement in the breast as it produces milk. Don’t just size up and hope for the best – you will need to visit a proper bra fitting specialist and be correctly fitted to ensure you are looking after your boob’s best interests.   

How Many Nursing Bras Will I Need?

We get asked this a lot! We always recommend starting off with at least two nursing bras so that you can have one in the wash and one on the go. Even with good breast pads (we recommend Hotmilk washable nursing pads), your bras are still likely to get milk-sodden and need washing more regularly than would a ‘normal’ bra. You’re likely to be wearing your nursing bra to bed (see next point) so washing will be required more frequently than you would for a normal bra that you only wear during the day. Definitely start with two nursing bras and then get remeasured a few months in when your milk supply has settled and your boobs aren’t fluctuating so much as in those early days of new motherhood. 

Should I Wear a Nursing Bra to Bed?

We find that most breastfeeding mums like to wear a bra to bed, and this is for two reasons. Firstly, night time is often when milk production is at its highest (hence the sleepless nights!) so leakage might be common and you’ll need breast pads, and breast pads need something to go in – a bra! Secondly; support. Your boobs are likely to be tender and need some extra support when you’re lactating so a comfortable bra is crucial so you can wear it at night too. Seamless multifit bras and nighttime maternity bras such as this one from Hotmilk will prove a god-send for a more comfortable night’s sleep. 

Are Underwire Nursing Bras Harmful?

There’s lots of talk about underwires causing mastitis or stopping lactation. Research shows that an ill-fitting bra which is too tight and squeezes the breast tissue will actually cause more damage than a wired bra that is perfectly and correctly fitted, wired or not. 

Correctly fitted underwired bras can be worn during pregnancy, but we don’t recommend the use of underwire bras during the first three months of your pregnancy or the first 6 weeks post-partum because these are the times when your breasts are fluctuating most. Regular changes in your breast (you’ll find that they can even change hourly!) will inhibit it from fitting perfectly into the cup and could cause some hindrance to you.

What is a Flexiwire Bra?

Flexiwire bras (such as the ProjectMe Warrior nursing bra) are a good alternative to normal underwired bras whilst pregnant, and are a very popular option for pregnant mums. A flexi-wire bra contains a lighter, more flexible wire in it than traditional wired bras. The flexible wire sits in the wire channel in much the same way as in your regular underwire bra, but is more supple and bendy. Flexible wire that is specially designed for nursing bras generally have a wider smile (curve) to help ensure that it sits comfortably below the breast tissue and not on it. If you feel like you want wire then ensure you’re properly fitted and the nursing bra is high quality from a reputable brand (have a look through our range of nursing bras and lingerie to see what we suggest!)

Where Can I Buy Nursing Sports Bras?

If you are a sporty type and can’t wait to get back to your fitness regime after baby arrives then a nursing sports bra will be a necessity because your milk-filled boobs will be heavier and more sensitive than they were pre-baby. Even when not nursing, breasts can move 8.26 inches during exercise as they move up and down, in and out and from side to side! So a good quality supportive nursing sports bra is a must. With cooling breathable panels and sports elastic under the bust to anchor the bra to the body, a nursing sports bra is quite a technical addition to the maternity wardrobe.  Hotmilk make a great range of nursing sports bras for the larger bust such as this Activate Sports flexiwire nursing bra. The good news is that if you exercise/workout when your baby is not around, then it’s fine to wear your usual sports bra.

Dress: Wrap Dresses
Bra: Fantasie Elodie Balcony in Cobalt
Why: Elodie is the one for wrap dresses as it’s balcony style has wide set straps that will sit perfectly underneath. Wrap dresses are great if you require a bra with a higher front for that extra support!

Dresses: Spaghetti Straps & Strapless
Bra: Panache Evie Strapless in Nude
Why: Seems obvious really doesn’t it? Strapless dresses need a strapless bra. But what about those with those teeny tiny thin straps? Best to keep the straps away and opt for strapless there too! We love Evie by Panache as it offers all the support of a normal bra and it’s paneled cups means it has an amazing fit!

2E91D92A00000578-3320542-image-a-28_1447862402649 evie_strapless_bra_black-crop

Dress: Sheer
Bra: Panache Evie Strapless in Black
Why: There’s nothing more feminine and classic than a sheer or lace panel! So again, lets not ruin the appeal with unpleasant straps, and guess what? Evie also comes in Black.

Dress: High Necklines
Bra: Fantasie Allegra with Side Support in White
Why: High necklines can really show off your shape, so stop your breasts from looking east & west by choosing a bra with an added side support panel in the cups! Side support helps project your shape forward and will keep you looking neat and tidy.

Can you believe it? It’s that time of year again. The sound of sleigh bells are coming around the corner, it’s nearly time to pucker up for a kiss under the mistletoe and we’re all starting to get in a tangle trying to wrap those pretty ribbon bows around the presents! All of this can only mean one thing….party dress season has officially arrived!

Whether you’re planning on treating yourself to a shiny new outfit, or you’re dusting off your trusty favourite, there is only one secret you need to know to ensure your dress is looking its best…

Underwear!

Yes you read that correctly, it’s all about the underwear. Get the foundation right and everything else will fall into place. It really is that easy.

The only thing you need to know, is make sure your bra fits!

Not only will it drastically change the overall shape it’ll give you, but do you know what? It’s actually a lot more comfortable (perfect for getting a little Christmas boogie on!) and helps improve breast health.

Our top three tips to ensure you’re wearing a well fitted bra:

1. THE BAND

  • The band should be fitted nice and snug running parallel to the bottom of the cups. If the band is riding up your back, or you can pull it a good couple of inches away from your body, then the band is too big, which means losing 80% of the support of the bra. Try going down a size or 2 and see how that fits. But remember, for every band size you go down, go up 1 size in the cup! (See our post about sister sizing)

2. THE CUPS

  • The Cups! What you are looking for is that the centre gore of the bra sits flat against your body and the top edge of the cup is sitting smoothly over your breasts. To check that the wires are not pressing on the edge of your breast tissue (just under your arm) simply pop your arm out to the side, pull away the side of the cups and check that the wires are sitting behind the start of your breast tissue (you may need to use a mirror to help, you ask a trusted friend of partner).
    • The most obvious sign that your cups are too small is that dreaded 4 boob look! (We’ve all been there haven’t we?) You’ll notice this if you find that your breasts spill out over the top, from the sides, or that the top edge of the bra is beginning to cut into the skin. Other signs to look out for include, the centre gore sitting away from your body, and the uncomfortable feeling of wires digging into you (no Christmas boogieing for you!)
    • Alternatively, if the cups are too big, then you will notice quite a gap between the bra and your breast, or an excess of fabric. If, like most of us, you have 1 boob slightly bigger than the other, then we always recommend fitting to the fuller side to ensure the best support.

3. THE STRAPS

  • The straps offer 10% each of the support in your bra, so check they are sitting correctly by popping your fingers in under the straps and lift them up off your shoulders. A well-adjusted strap should lift no more than about 2 inches. If you can stretch them up over your ears, you might want to tighten them a little.

We always recommend dropping in-store and getting professionally fitted by one of our trained fitters, but if you don’t happen to live nearby then we’ve always got our carefully crafted Bra Size Calculator on our website for you to try!

We know, we know – shopping for bras can be a nightmare. It’s a minefield out there. What are all these bras? What difference do they make? And how on earth do you choose?

That’s why we welcome you to: The Bra Series

As part of our #FreeTheSqueeze campaign, we’ll be introducing you to the wonderful world of bras (and if that bra is right for your boobs). By the end of this series, you’ll know so much about bras, you’ll be calling up ITV, challenging The Governess (or old ‘Frosty Knickers’ as Bradley likes to call her) to a bra special on ‘The Chase’.

So let’s begin:

What is a Balcony Bra?

Jasmine by Panache Balcony Bra

The Straps

A balcony bra (or balconette, as you may know it by) has wide-set straps that sit right on the edge of the cup. It creates a square-ish neckline that makes the balcony perfect for wearing with a variety of stylish, low-cut tops and dresses (go on, show off your décolletage).

The Cups

The trusted balcony offers just the right amount of coverage (about ¾ of the boobs), so is a fantastic option when you’re looking for that extra something, to make you feel super feminine and glamorous, but also, incredibly supported.

The cup is usually made up of 3 parts, which will mould to your breasts, and make the most out of your natural shape. The wires come up about mid-way on your chest and fully encase your boobs, to enhance your cleavage.

Susanna by Fantatsie 3 Part Cup
3 Part Cup – Fantasie Susanna in Fuchsia Balcony Bra (with side support)

Side Support

Some balconies have this amazing secret panel known as side support (it’s not really a secret, nor is it secretly hidden, but it makes it sound snazzy right?), which will project your boobs forward, and keep you looking neat and tidy. So, if you happen to have wide-set boobs, with a considerable gap in between them – or your boobs are quite full on the side – then a balcony with side support will be the perfect choice for you.

Julia by Fantasie Balcony Bra with Side Support

Balcony Plunge

A sister style of the Balcony, combining all the benefits of both Balcony and Plunge – it’s the best of both worlds. The cups provide less coverage than a standard balcony, but more than a regular plunge, creating a beautiful sweetheart line to frame your chest. If you’re busty, it’s got the oomph, without compromising on the support. Rest assure, your boobs are not going anywhere.

Is a Balcony right for me?

A balcony is a great all round bra, and suits almost all kinds of boobs.

They are especially good if you have boobs that are fuller at the bottom. The shape of the cup will naturally lift you up, giving you that fabulous cleavage you’ve always dreamed off.

If you find that your breasts are fuller on top, you may want to opt for balcony styles that have a top panel (quite often in lace) with a little more stretch in it. Bras with stiff or fixed fabric used on that panel, could end up cutting into that fullness, giving you the appearance of double boobs (even if the rest of the cup fits well) – I think we can both agree here, that’s a big no, no.

Just for fun

And in case you happen to be sat here wondering “Where does the name balcony comes from?” (and why wouldn’t you be, it’s an odd name for a bra after all, isn’t it?) – Well apparently, back in the day at the theatre, men would supposedly look down from their balconies, trying to catch a glimpse our lady lumps! – they couldn’t see this type of bra from above (shame on you men. Tsk tsk).

(We cannot confirm how factually accurate that is, but never-the-less, it made us chuckle).

Stay tuned for our next post, where we’ll be revealing the wonders of the Half Cup.

Happy belated 2015! – It’s been a great start to the year so far, and it’s about to get even better with the launch of our new campaign, #FreeTheSqueeze

But first…Let me ask you this: Would you put your feet in shoes 2 sizes too small? No? That would be silly right?! So why do it to your boobs?

Think about how uncomfortable it is when you’ve squished your feet into a pair of shoes, that don’t fit (no matter how gorgeous they are!). It hurts. Prohibits your movement. It might even cause you physical damage!

Well…The same applies to your boobs.

#FreeTheSqueeze was born, because I value empowering the women I meet every day. I want you to know, that bras don’t need to be uncomfortable. It is possible for a bra to be pretty, fashionable, comfortable and supportive all at the same time, we really can have it all!

#FreeTheSqueeze is about spreading that positive message, so you, and your boobs can enjoy the realisation that a better more comfortable fit, might not actually be that hard to find!

But if it’s the ultimate surprise you are looking for then just remember these 5 TOP TIPS:

1. It’s all about the size! Especially when it comes to the bra! And this is no guessing game, oh no. When she’s not around find her favourite bra (with hope she’s not wearing it that day!) and make note of her size. Mish stocks from cup sizes B-JJ and band sizes 28-44.

2. Know her style! Take a moment to look at what she likes…yes I’m sure you’ve seen it all before, but take a closer look this time. Is she vibrant? Love feminine prints? Bold colours? Or does she prefer lace in classic tones such as white, black or nude?

3. Once you’ve got the style nailed, it’s time to think about the different shapes bras come in! Some women prefer a full cup, others a balcony, whilst many prefer a plunge. Check the style of shape your partner has more of, and you’re sure to get it right.

4. And lastly, we cannot forget about her knickers! Every women loves to match her undies, Mish recommends 2-3 pairs per bra. But ask yourselves this first… Is she a thong lady? Or does she favour shorts or briefs?

5. Once you’ve found the perfect lingerie…Don’t forget to ask us to Gift Wrap it for you!

With Christmas fast approaching it can mean only one thing, party dress season has arrived! It’s time to glam up and let the world know you’ve got it and you’re going to flaunt it!

But just in case you’re a little stuck on how to make the most out of your body and you’re struggling to find the perfect lingerie to wear under your fabulous outfit, we’ve put together some top tips and advice to help you know how to dress your killer curves this Christmas!

It’s all in the Shape

To create perfect harmony between your lingerie and your party dress, pay close attention to the style of the neckline!

For sweetheart or V-shaped necklines, wear a plunge bra to avoid any accidental bra spotting’s (we don’t want that now, do we?) A padded plunge will give you that extra oomph! While side support will create a natural uplifted look. The Fantasie Abigail and Elodi are firm favourites of ours. For fuller figures, Lexi by Elomi is a fantastic choice for a plunge with extra support!

Going the full mile with a super sexy low cut neckline? Then you need Rochelle by Gossard for its sensual deep plunge.

But for higher necklines go for a smooth finish; no lumps or bumps wanted here thank you. The ever so popular Deco range by Freya is the ideal solution due to its moulded seamless cups. But if you find the Deco’s plunge too low for your shape, then try Eclispe by Fantasie for a better fit.

Look at that Body

Make a statement with a bold body con or dazzling cocktail dress and highlight your assets with stunning shapewear.

The Panache Envy Body is a great alternative to your everyday humdrum control pants. It’s a little bit sexy, which makes it perfect for dressing up and still comes with all the support and control that you need. This piece is a guaranteed confident booster.

For those of you looking to simply enhance your waist line for some classic feminine glamour, then our waist clincher will be perfect for you!

Stay away from the Straps

When wearing flirty strapless styles or chic dresses with lace yokes please keep those bra straps hidden (even the ‘invisible’ ones – come on, you know everyone can see them!) and get yourself a strapless bra! The Panache Evie is an elegant option and because it’s nude it will go with everything!

Multiway bras like Curvy Kate’s Desire Plunge Bra, come with adjustable straps which makes them perfect for sexy racer backs and halter neck styles.

Say goodbye to the VPL

We’ve all experienced that moment when we take one last look in the mirror just before heading out the door and to our horror…uh oh. The dreaded VPL.

Avoid spending all night trying to hide your visible panty line and show off that butt in all its glory by opting for styles with a delicate lace edging that will lie flat upon your skin. We love the Ivana deep thong by Fantasie and as a bonus, these knickers make your bum look incredible!

Alternatively, if thong’s aint your thang. Try seamless edged briefs in super soft fabrics like Lepel’s Lyla.

But the most important rule of all is….make sure your undies fit correctly! Trust us when we say, it’s your secret weapon to confidence!
