What kind of sleep bra and how many do I need? A good number is 3. One to wear, one to wash, and one to get lost in the laundry. The third one is a sad reality, but we aren't all supermom so we do get behind on our laundry. As far as the sleep bra goes, my favorite is my own design, the Amamante Night and Day Nursing Bra. It is double layered in the cups and has seams under the breasts for extra support that flimsy sleep bras don't offer. Crossover style sleep nursing bras are the easiest to access when you are half asleep because you just pull them down to nurse and they are so comfortable you won't want to put on your daytime bra. Every good sleep bra pulls on over your head or hooks in the front so you don't have hooks to dig into you while lying on your back. Styles for larger busted moms such as the Bravado Original Double Plus Nursing Bra are made for wear 24/7.
Any other options for sleeping? Most Amamante brand nursing gowns and nursing pajamas have the sleep bra built right in! Amamante Nursingwear's best-selling Signature Nursing Gown and Serenity Nursing Pajamas have a night-time nursing built in bra. Our customers love these fashionable nursingwear styles; and because of the easy nursing access, it is moms best friend at 3 am! It comes in standard B-D sizes, but if you choose the next size up for DD cup or two sizes up for DDD, bustier moms like it too.
Best wishes for a few minutes of sleep,
