No matter if you choose to go 'cold turkey' or wean gradually, your breasts are likely to become slightly to very engorged for up to two weeks. During this time, your regular bras, even nursing bras may be stretched or not be supportive enough. Thus, for weaning, an athletic bra may be perfect to give you the support you need during this uncomfortable time. Unsupported breasts will cause you more pain. Just make sure you use nursing pads with the athletic bra as you are also likely to leak.
