My first recommendation is a quality nursing bra. If you are a plus size mom with smaller breasts, my recommendation is the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra in size 2X. This bra is a great transitional nursing bra as it fits multiple cup sizes for your changing shape. The 2X nursing bra size in this super comfortable seamless nursing bra with removable foam pads works well for the following bra sizes. 42DD, 44DD, 444D and 46DD. If you are a DDD ie F cup or larger, there are more supportive options in your size.
For our bustier mamas, the Bravado Embrace Nursing Bra is a great choice. While it is a soft cup no wire nursing bra, it has a proprietary fabric that holds it's shape and your shape beautifully! Although not technically a plus size nursing bra, the 36 band nursing mom who is well endowed can benefit from this bra as well since it is available in 36JK and 36LM nursing bra size as well.as 40D/E, 42D/E, 44D/E and 44F/G.
Another great option that is priced for every budget is the La Leche League Jacquard Nursing Bra. This bra is perfect for the F, G and H cup nursing moms. Lactation Connection has a special purchase price of below $20 on their LLL nursing bras, so now is the time to snag your bra. Keep in mind that since the LLL Jacquard Nursing Bra is not a multi-cup nursing bra to fit more than one size like the Bravado Embrace, don't go up a size as the molded cups may be too big. La Leche League also offers style 4315 which is a lined wire free nursing bra in sizes up to 42DDD/F
Next, you will want to shop for a great nursing nightgown or pajama set. Most brands don't accommodate curvy moms well and with sizing all over the place, it is hard to buy online. We offer Amamante Nursingwear which is sized by bust for the nursing nightgowns and both bust and pant size for the nursing pajamas making it easy to order online. These fit so well that we rarely get returns on these nursing nightgowns and pajamas. Amamante's styles offer a built in sleep bra with enough support for sleepwear and to keep nursing pads in place while you sleep! Available in sizes 2X and 3X for our curvier moms. Choose the Signature Nursing Gown or Belleza Nursing Nightgown in 2X if your bust size is 40DD-42DD. If you are a 40DDD/F, go up a size to the 3X which fits 40F, 42DD-44DD. For the pajama pants, size 2X fits 20/22 and 3X fits 24/26. Sold as nursing pajama sets or separates if you need a different size for your nursing top vs your pajama bottom!
Here's hoping these selections make you feel like the beautiful nursing mama you are!
