The Best Bralettes for Pregnant and Nursing Moms
Shop Story

As maternity style slowly evolves, so do the undergarments associated with it. While pregnancies of the past may have required bulky beige bras from super-small maternity sections at stores, brands today are creating gorgeous nursing and maternity bras and bralettes that rival the sleek and stylish designs of non-maternity wear. Bralettes are a great pregnancy and nursing choice because they’re typically stretchy, soft, underwire-free and have pretty, strappy details that don’t look bad poking out of T-shirts and thin-strapped dresses or tops. Check out round-up of the best nursing and maternity bralettes out there!
