I bought what I thought was a maternity bra from an online retailer however when I opened the packaging it is actually a sleeping bra. Can anyone tell me what the difference is?
Thanks katie

Hmm I think there's a lot of overlap. I think maternity bra seems to cover any kind of soft cup bra in general including more structured ones and the sleep type bras? Sleep bras are the plain fabric crop top type ones with not much support. Nursing ones are the same but with the clip on front strap so they come down for boobage to escape easily.
