News flash: Your breasts are going to grow and change—a lot—during pregnancy and postpartum. Invest in a supportive athletic bra (or two) to make maternity sweat sessions more enjoyable. Also, check your bra size as you go to make sure your fit is correct.
Destination Maternity Sports Clip Down Nursing Bra, $20
Running bras and nursing don’t always go together like babies and pacifiers, but this one does, thanks to a run-ready design, easy-to-use panels and a sweet price point. Of course it’s supportive enough for maternity too!
Brooks Fiona Bra, $46
While not a maternity or nursing-specific bra, this perennial favorite has the adjustability and support necessary to accommodate your shifting size.
“The Fiona is adjustable, so it grows with you. I was able to buy one new size that I used throughout my pregnancy and postpartum. I continued wearing my ‘pregnancy-sized’ Fiona until I finished breastfeeding.” —Robin Gunn, mother of one from San Diego
Cake Lemon Zest Pro Impact Flexi-Wire Nursing Sports Bra, $80
If a bra can have it, this one does—molded cups, flexible underwire, padded straps, racerback conversion clip, stylish looks—oh, and it’s a nursing bra, with drop-down flaps! The result is comfort, security and easy nursing, even mid-race!
Giggle All-Purpose Wonder Balm, $14
Growing breasts can rub in unexpected places, so double down on the anti-chafing balm while expecting.
