Wire-free bras are usually the most comfortable option for women who are pregnant or nursing. Soft cup nursing bras are designed to offer the ease of a drop-down cup along with support for the naturally larger breasts that are a part of nursing. Typically, nursing wireless bras may be designed with some or all of these features: seamed multi-part cups, side support slings, elastic underbands, leotard backs and easy plastic clasps.
Although meant to be hard-working, softcup nursing bras may also be pretty, even sexy. Some are embellished with lace overlays, scalloped lace, bows or other feminine touches. All will have some stretch to accommodate the fluctuating cup size that is typical when nursing.
