Since Quinn was born (5 years ago now!), both my real life and internet friends have asked me about the best sports bras for nursing moms. Of course, I realize sports bras aren’t the ideal undergarment for nursing a baby, but life happens and sometimes you need to feed your little one right before, during, or after a workout. (Hey, it’s just a tiny bit of sweat, right?) The best sports bras for nursing moms mentioned below are all-around awesome when it comes to support, comfort, and, well, easy access when you need it.
I know it’s been a little awhile since I nursed Quinn, but these sports bras continue to be some of my favorites (particularly for running), which means they definitely have some longevity when it comes to my exercise wardrobe. I wore a number of them when I was pregnant and still continue to wear them today. With that, here are the best sports bras for nursing moms!
The best sports bra for nursing moms:
SYROKAN Women’s Front Adjustable Lightly Padded Wirefree Racerback High Impact Sports Bra – Once my beloved Brooks Juno Bra was discontinued, I was on the hunt for a substitute – this is an exact dupe! It’s perfect for high-impact activities and running because it’s a sports bra that basically has it all — plenty of support, shape (no uni-boob), full coverage (no crazy cleavage), soft-padded keyhole back closure for proper fit, and adjustable straps that completely un-Velcro when you need it. And I love that it’s a racerback to go with all of my tank tops.
Fiona Sports Bra – The Fiona is similar to the Juno, but it’s not a racerback. I’m a big tank top person, so I often picked my Juno over my Fiona. The Fiona is still an awesome sports bra for nursing because it has front-adjustable straps that completely unhook with the same molded, lightweight cups for a natural shape and lots of support. It just depends which style you like better. They’re both great sports bras for nursing!
Maia Sports Bra – This sports bra has some serious coverage. It’s quite generous and covers a good portion of the chest. The support is almost like two-in-one since there’s molded cups to maintain shape and underwire to support each breast individually. Once again, there are adjustable straps and a soft-padded back closure for a great fit and plenty of comfort for fuller-cupped women. It’s also for sale on Zappos, so be sure to take advantage of the free shipping both ways!
Rebound Racer – This is a new-to-me sports bra, but I was pleasantly surprised by the style and fit because it was so comfortable and supportive. But what set this sports bra apart as a nursing sports bra (or just a really customizable one) is the front-adjustable straps. They stay nice and flat again the chest, and I know they’re not going anywhere!
