Maternity and Nursing Bras
Maternity and nursing bras are all designed to provide comfort and support. However, there are differences between them to know about. Maternity bras focus on supporting your growing breasts during your pregnancy, while nursing bras support easy access to breastfeeding. What’s great about The Larken X is that it’s an all-in-one nursing and pumping bra that is perfect for pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond, so you don’t need to have multiple bras!
What To Look For in a Bra
The important things to look for when shopping for a bra are size, support, style, material, and ability to nurse.
Size⎯Your breasts will grow throughout your pregnancy and when breastfeeding, which can make it difficult to find a bra that fits correctly. Also, look for a bra that will stretch as it adapts to your changing body. A properly fitting bra will provide the support and comfort you need, day and night. Our Larken X, an all-in-one nursing and pumping bra is made with OEKO-TEX® certified fabric, and its silky softness won't stick to your sensitive skin.

Comfortable, Light Support⎯Having some support during pregnancy and postpartum is crucial, but it should be comfortable. As your breasts grow, they become heavier and can cause strain on your back and shoulders. Look for bras that are wire-free with relaxed support and don't compress your breasts too tightly.
Style⎯There are many different styles of pregnancy bras available, including underwire, wireless, and sports bras. Consider your needs and preferences when choosing a style. Wireless bras are typically more comfortable and offer more flexibility when going about your day and to sleep in. An all-in-one nursing and pumping bra is a great option to choose if you plan to nurse and/or pump because you can seamlessly transition without having to switch bras day and night.
Material⎯The material of your pregnancy bra can make a big difference in comfort and support. Look for bras made from breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics that will keep you cool and dry. Soft, stretchy materials can be a good choice for sensitive skin.
Nursing ability⎯If you plan to nurse or pump, consider getting an all-in-one nursing and pumping bra. These bras are designed to be worn all day and night and allow for easy and discreet breastfeeding or pumping.
