Choose Wisely: How Bras Determine Breast Health
Did you know the bra you choose can affect the health of your breasts?
When not breastfeeding, your breasts are pretty uncomplicated — they're primarily made up of fat and glandular tissue. But when breastfeeding, the biomechanics of the breasts become a lot more complicated.
Things we do, including wearing the wrong bra, can interfere with the lactating breast and increase the risk of common breastfeeding ailments such as clogged ducts and mastitis.
At Bodily, we created a system to help you choose and wear nursing bras with confidence. It's as simple as 1, 2, 3!
Three stages of breastfeeding, and bras specially designed with a lactation consultant and optimized for each stage. Refer to our handy chart with Bodily's guidelines for how to think about choosing a nursing bra to support breast health.
