The 6 best padded nursing bras on Amazon

Padded nursing bras provide extra protection for sensitive nipples, preventing milk nipple show-through and milk leaks. Padded bras with contoured or molded cups also give you a nice silhouette under tops.

More importantly, you don’t have deal with removable pads that move and fold at their own will.

Best padded nursing bra overall: Cake Maternity Croissant Nursing Bra

Cake Maternity Croissant Soft Wire Nursing Bra for Breastfeeding, Full Cup Flexi Wire Supportive Maternity Bra, 36DD UK/ 36E US, MauveCheck it out on Amazon

Why I love the Croissant Nursing Bra

  • it’s so soft and light on your skin, like a croissant!
  • has molded cups with 3D spacer fabric which is lighter and more breathable than foam cups
  • OEKO-TEX certified to be free from harmful chemicals
  • has A-frame slings (pictured below) for more support and coverage during breastfeeding

Cake Maternity Croissant Soft Wire Nursing Bra for Breastfeeding, Full Cup Flexi Wire Supportive Maternity Bra, 38G UK/ 38I US, NudeCheck it out on Amazon

What I don’t like about it

  • The straps are thin like a regular bra’s and isn’t padded so it can be scratchy and cut into your shoulders if you have large breasts.

Bear in mind

  • The Croissant Bra has flexi-wires which are not suitable for new moms

Best padded nursing bra for large breasts: Elomi Molly Lace Nursing Bra

Elomi Women's Plus Size Molly Stretch Lace Underwire Nursing Bra, Black, 42JCheck it out on Amazon

Why I love the Elomi Molly Nursing Bra

  • it looks good, and no one would know it’s a nursing bra.
  • the stretch lace on the top cup helps you feel sexy
  • provide great support up to size 42KK/44HH despite not having flexi-wires
  • has a full circle internal foam sling (not the usual side sling) for more support during breastfeeding

What I don’t like about it

  • It’s not breathable
  • the lace collects lint

Bear in mind

  • this bra is not for moms with smaller breasts – there is too much material and the molded cups will gape on you

Best padded nursing bra for small breasts: Natori Feathers Contour Nursing Bra

Natori Women's Feathers Contour Plunge Maternity and Nursing Bra (Cafe, 34B)Check it out on Amazon

Why I love the Feathers Nursing Bra

  • the plunge neck line is sexy and flattering
  • beautiful lace trim
  • doesn’t look like a nursing bra at all
  • the molded cups give you a push up effect

What I don’t like about it

  • it has a flexi-wire. I feel moms with small breasts get more than enough support from wireless nursing bras

Bear in mind

  • it’s not suitable for new moms because of the underwire

  • it’s wireless with a wide underbust band for support
  • the racerback design means more support and no falling shoulder straps

What I don’t like about it

  • the side slings stretch out quickly so there’s basically no support during breastfeeding

Bear in mind

  • you won’t be able to wear spag straps and camis with it

Best padded nursing sports bra: Cake Maternity Zest Nursing Sports Bra

Cake Maternity Zest Nursing Sports Bra for Breastfeeding, Sports Maternity Bra, Grey, 36GG UK/ 36J USCheck it out on Amazon

To wrap up

Personally, I would choose padded nursing bras any time. It’s wonderful not having to fiddle with nursing pads that move and fold every time I breastfeed.
