When we talk about preparing for the arrival of a newborn, there’s a very long list of what you need. From a crib to a car seat and from little booties to soft mittens, there are a million things that a baby needs. And don’t even get me started on all the things that mums plan for the nursery!
But in all this, it is typical to forget about what the mums might need after the baby comes home. Physical changes in the body continue even after childbirth and what you need when you start the journey of motherhood with breastfeeding is a good nursing bra.

Have you thought of buying yourself a maternity bra or a nursing bra? This guide will walk you through everything you need including maternity underwear.
Why do you need a Nursing Bra?
You might feel you don’t need one – after all, you already have a lot of bras in your closet, right? But a nursing bra can make your life a lot easier. Here’s how.
- A nursing bra can give you more comfort with its soft, breathable fabric. A welcome relief from tight bras in the Singapore weather.
- You don’t have to completely take your bra off to conveniently breastfeed when you are using a nursing bra.
- A nursing bra won’t be tight around the bust area.
- It will be stretchable and accommodate the changing size of the breasts.
- It can give your breasts adequate support and prevent sagging.
