Nursing bras are great at being comfortable and discreet when you are with your baby to nurse, but they are not always the most supportive or even pretty. For those who prefer more coverage or worry about portruding, nursing bras leave them feeling unprotected. Fortunately, non-nursing bras are still an option. To avoid the need for nursing pads, use a bra that is slightly padded. Even if you have leakage, it will not likely seep through the bra, however you might find yourself washing bras more often than before. To pump or nurse with these bras you can always lift your breast up over the cup itself. Be careful when doing this so as not to stretch the bra too much. Staying in your comfort zone will keep you nursing longer.
