The best A-frame nursing bras for extra support and coverage

Nursing bras with A-frames are awesome when it comes to extra support during breastfeeding. Especially if you have large breasts, they help hold your boobs in place and prevent drooping when your cups are down.

A-frame nursing bras also give you that little bit of extra boob coverage when you are breastfeeding in public. These are my favorites:

To wrap up

Most nursing bras have side slings but there are a handful of high quality A-frame nursing bras on the market. They are especially useful when you have large breasts and need a bit more support and coverage when your cups are down.
