Fit Nursing Mamas

Wearing a supportive bra while working out is always important but even more so when you are pregnant or nursing. More than likely your breast size has increased so it's best to invest in new sports bras to support your new shape. Luckily there are some great sports bras that are supportive, allow easy access for nursing and aren't matronly-looking. The two fitness bras below are reasonably priced and while not marketed specifically for pregnant/nursing moms, are versatile enough for both. 

The Fiona Bra ($44) by Moving Comfort is what I am currently using and love. It's supportive, flattering and the front adjustable straps not only allow for a customized fit but also easy access for nursing. Best of all it comes in lots of fun colors!

The Rebound Racer ($48) also by Moving Comfort is a new bra in their line and one that I definitely want to try. It has the same front adjustable straps as the Fiona but has a more sporty look to it with panelled details and heathered fabric. 

The biggest difference is that the Rebound Racer has a racerback design (see picture) whereas the Fiona has a scoop back. In general a racerback design tends to be more supportive. 

Both are great bras for low to high impact exercise, have a large selection of sizes and are fashionable unlike most nursing specific fitness bras. Whether you are a mama to be or a nursing mama get out there and get moving!
