Quick Summary: The Best Sleeping Bra For Pregnancy
The Best Sleeping Bra For Pregnancy – Our Top Picks
Our team of reviewers spent 6 nights sleeping in the items below along with an additional 10 hours reading other reviews online to produce the list below.
1. Motherhood Maternity Women’s Wrap Front Nursing Sleep Bra
The Motherhood Maternity Women’s Wrap Front Nursing Sleep Bra is a soft and wireless, nursing bra that is perfect for pregnancy as it offers fantastic support while you sleep, no matter how much tossing and turning you do.
The fit is good, stays put and is a breeze to put on and off.
Available in sizes S to 3X.
2. Boob Women’s 24/7 Maternity Bra
While the Boob Women’s 24/7 Sleeping Maternity Bra is our premium choice product, we feel that it’s worth every penny.
What reviewers seemed to really like was the U-back design which makes it really easy to get on and off. It’s comfortable too with just the right level of support without feeling too restrictive.
Available in sizes small to x-large and colors black, pink and grey melange.
3. Kindred Bravely Extra Soft Organic Cotton Sleep Bra
The thing that first caught our attention to the Kindred Bravely Extra Soft Organic Cotton Wireless Maternity bra was the fact that it’s an Eco Excellence Award Winner!
The next thing that our independent reviewer really liked was that being a 40D she often found that she tends to spill over in some maternity bras. Thankfully this wasn’t the case with this bra!
The Kindred Bravely Extra Soft Organic Cotton Wireless is available in X-Small right through to XX-Large and in a huge range of colors.
4. HOFISH Women’s Full Bust Wirefree Sleeping Nursing Seamless Maternity Bra
The thing we really like about the HOFISH sleeping bra is how well designed it is. You can tell that real thought has been put into everything from the clips that make getting it on and off right through to how comfortable and soft the bra feels with and without the pads in.
Speaking of which, we really like that you’ll be able to use this both through pregnancy and then as a nursing bra.
The band under the cups is a sensation – soft, durable, wide and thick enough around your ribcage to make up for lack of underwire which made it a great choice to wear while out during the day but soft enough with no digging to wear at night.
Think of the HOFISH Women’s Full Bust as a bra that combines the comfort of a sports with the convinience of a nursing bra and the appearance of a normal bra.
Available in sizes Small to X-Large and in a range of colours and patterns.
The Bottom Line
So there you have it – while wearing a bra might not solve all of your sleep issues by choosing the best sleeping bra for pregnancy you’re helping reduce breast ache by making the girls a little more comfortable.
