When shopping for maternity bras for smaller chested women, it’s imperative that you factor in the impact that your milk production will have on the size of your breasts. Even women who’ve lived with smaller busts their entire lives can find themselves waking up to swollen breasts as their breast milk comes in. And whilst you do eventually get used to these fluctuations in the size and shape of your breasts, it’s still important to get yourself a nursing bra that can not only grow with you, but can also help you feel beautiful on those mornings where you’re feeling less than yourself, to say the very least.

That’s what makes the Triumph Gorgeous Mama Lace Wirefree Bra our pick for the best maternity bra for smaller busts.

Best Bra For Small Chest & Large Band
