Kathy Gambito: When a woman's breast is growing, we don't know how large she will become by the time she is ready to nurse. Some women will change may be 1 cup size to go up to one, if they were B, they will go up to a C, and then some women maybe a 36C and they are 40G. They get larger than they would ever anticipate it. The nursing bras here in our store start off with simple sleep bras that we want women to wear prior to delivery as well as the first couple of weeks after, then we have a full line of bras ranging from 34B all the way up to 50K. This is a great bra for women after they've gotten past the first two weeks of the delivery. It's got different hooks for layers, so that as they grow or get fuller, they are able to move and adjust the bra to fit their needs. This bra is a sleep bra, it's designed for woman to use in the first couple weeks after delivery. It pulls open for easier access, it's not constricting and it's meant to hold the breast pads in place, while the moms possibly leaking. A lot of women love something different and we have got leopard skin for moms who want a little flare. We've got polka dot and we also want to have a bra that's comfortable, that's not constricting and fun. If a mom is leaking, it's not something it's going to last the whole time she is nursing, but there are pads that they can purchase to put inside the bra to help to alleviate the leaking as far as it's showing outside of her clothing. The women will change them whenever they are moist because you don't want to keep a moist pad next to the bras. These are something that women will continually change. We have them in disposable which they can throw away and just use once and that's it or they can wash them. Our bras are definitely designed for nursing to make access to the breast area that needs to be exposed for a baby a lot easier. So what we'll do is we'll have bras that will flap down or perhaps open from the middle, that will be more supportive. They're built to keep the tissue supported for the mom and the baby while the baby is nursing.
