Could anyone give me any advice on what bra to wear when you stop breastfeeding? I understand that you need to compress the milk ducts to stop the flow, how/what is best to do this?
I am a designer currently researching into maternity/nursing lingerie and from what i've found, or rather havent found, there isnt a bra that helps you at this stage. What would have been/would be the ideal solution to this? I want to create an full range of lingerie that covers everything mums need, at all stages pre and post pregnancy and I haven't found anything for this time.
What was your experience?
What did you wear?
Were you happy with it?
What would you do differently?
Any suggestions or pointers would be fantastic. Thank you in advance!
I wore my sports bra (shock absorber) as it was tight and well supportive. I was very happy with it and wouldn't do anything differently. I think anything well fitted so that is slightly compresses does the job!
I just started wearing normal underwired bras again. No real discomfort or problems - I certainly wouldn't have forked out for a special bra designed to help stop the milk coming in, I'd have seen it as a bit of a waste of money and another addition to the unnecessary 'essential stuff' that is aimed at pregnant women and new mothers!
