If you think finding a bra that fits correctly is tough, try finding a nursing bra that fits. It's so hard. The sizes are limited, the styles are weird. After two babies and almost 3 years of wearing a nursing bra, I was fed up. I finally found a few bras (this and this) that fit me well at my local Nordstrom Rack and I got to work.
Let's get started:
w h a t y o u n e e d
nursing bra clasps - A&B (I took mine from an old nursing bra but they can be purchased here)
ribbon or elastic - C
and a bra that fits like a glove
w h a t t o d o
1 . cut the straps an inch above the connection at the front of the bra
2 . sew the strap (E) to clasp (B)
3 . sew the strap (D) to clasp (A)
4 . sew the ribbon (C) to the bottom of clasp (A)
5 . determine the length of ribbon (C) needed. sew ribbon to the interior of the bra.
It's actually a really quick process & I am over the moon with how it turned out. I recommend a soft cup bra although it will work a formed cup bra as well.
Have you ever made your own nursing bra? Are you ready to get started?
