Pregnancy is a Pain in the Breast: Coping Tips

Bras, in fact, play an important role in coping with breast discomfort. Wearing the right bra is critical.

Wear a bra that fits properly
Find a store that has a professional bra fit expert. This individual will measure you for the right bra and can advise you about proper fit during pregnancy. Monitor size changes as your pregnancy progresses.

Choose cotton
Cotton bras allow your breasts to breathe, minimizing heat and throbbing feelings.

Use a sports bra
Use a bra specifically designed for sports or exercising when you are working out during pregnancy. This helps support your breasts and lessens swelling and pain. You may also want to opt for a sports bra when not exercising if the extra support seems helpful to you.
