In order for a bra to have optimal support, it needs to hug the body, including the bridge. The cup needs to capture all of the breast tissue inside. Breast tissue is a living thing and it needs to breathe. When the underwire cuts into it, oxygen supply is cut off.
Every bra has a different shape. We like to work with different shapes to figure out which shape will flatter/minimize every customer’s frame. Just because a bra doesn’t have a “minimizer” tag, doesn’t mean it won’t minimize beautifully. Most of our best-selling minimizers don’t have “minimizer” tags.
Soft breast tissue is common. It usually occurs when lots of weight is lost, breastfeeding was stopped, postmenopause… Try to find a bra with a band under the wire for more support. Or, add a rubber in addition to the band for optimal support.
At the end of the 8th, beginning of the 9th month. Try to get 2 comfy bras for the beginning that you’ll be comfortable lounging and sleeping in. Usually, at 6-8 weeks, the milk supply settles and a regular supportive bra can be purchased then.
