The well considered clothes you periodically buy to spruce up your wardrobe will never look quite right without the proper underpinnings. Not to mention your overall comfort. It always amazes me how many women are wearing the completely wrong bra size or have never been properly fitted. The most common mistake I see women making is that their band is 1 to 2 sizes too big! 80% of your support comes from your band so, please take the time to either measure yourself or have a professional do it for you (not the teenager in the big box store). Your form fitting cloths will thank you!
Here are some solutions to common bra issues:
Solution: The hook needs to be tightened. This could happen after a few months of wearing that favorite bra, or it could mean you need to choose a smaller band size.
Solution: If the bra is new, try getting into the bra by bending at your waist and let your breasts fall into the cups and positioning them so they are fully in the cup. If there is still extra fabric you may need to go down a cup size.
Problem: Front Gap
Solution: The center front of the bra should lay flush against your sternum. If this does not happen the bra may be the wrong size or style. Different brands are shaped and sized very differently so don’t get discouraged. You may simply need to try another brand or deviate from the size you think you are.
Problem: Lack of Support
Solution: The one place that gives you great support in your bra is the bridge, or center. This is very important. A plunge bra is meant for special occasion outfits, not every day wear for support. Your bridge length should get bigger with your size (ie: the bridge length for a D cup is going to be longer than an A cup). Another area that gives 80% of your support is the band and clasp size. A larger band/clasp (three or more) gives you more support.

Nizo Wear is the first nursing bra to have a unique, patented pocket in the pull-down flap that can hold a heating or cooling pack helping bring moms relief and healing faster while being extremely comfortable and super chic.
Nizo Wear nursing bras were inspired by the real-life experience of the company’s founder, Nicole Zoellner. When Nicole became pregnant with her son, she eagerly read all the materials her doctor had given her about the benefits of breastfeeding. She happily anticipated the feelings of serenity and bonding that nursing promises mother and infant.
So, Nicole set out to do for other nursing moms what no-one had been able to do for her: provide a practical, comfortable way to get relief from the soreness breastfeeding mothers often experience. Her design was patented, andNizo Wear was born.
