And the Winner Is: Cake Maternity

Your breasts can change dramatically in size (as well as shape) over the course of your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey. Every woman is different, of course, but you might expect to go up a band size and one or two cup sizes. That means you’re going to need some new bras—and if you plan on nursing, you’ll need bras that offer easy access for your hungry baby. The trick, of course, is finding a bra that’s supportive and comfortable and works best for your body type and style preferences. Cake Maternity to the rescue. The brand offers nine different types of nursing bras—so whether you want underwire or wireless, T-shirt bras or pumping bras, sports bras or sleeping bras, Cake has you covered.

What We Love

  • Cake Maternity offers a fantastic variety of maternity and nursing bras to choose from: crossover, clip-down, racerback, wireless, seamless, flexible underwire, bras for fuller busts (up to K cups!), hands-free pumping bras—you name it, this brand’s got it

  • Not sure what kind of bra you want or need? Cake’s website allows you to search by style or by trimester / stage, so you can narrow down which options will work best for you; you can also head to the “Bra Education” page for even more info and guidance

  • The bras are available in a range of styles, fabrics and colors. The common theme? Every Cake bra we’ve ever worn has been cute, ultra-comfortable and easy to nurse in (not surprising, given that the brand was founded by a mom who was struggling to find bras that were comfortable, functional and stylish)

  • Many new moms opt for wireless bras to avoid the possibility of a clogged milk duct, but if you’re an underwire fan and are craving the support, breathe easy knowing Cake bras feature flexible wire, which is a bendier wire designed to sit below the breast tissue, not on it
