Although there’s no definitive proof that wearing a bra can prevent sagging, common sense tells us that support can stave off drooping, especially during pregnancy. There are ligaments that stretch as the breasts enlarge, and these connective tissues are unable to bounce back; so wearing a supportive bra can certainly be helpful.
The rapid growth experienced during pregnancy can make it difficult to stay in perfectly fitting bras, but many maternity and nursing bras come in less-strict small, medium and large sizes, giving you more room to grow.
When bra shopping while pregnant or breastfeeding, keep in mind that most doctors recommend avoiding underwires, as poor fit could hinder the flow of milk and lymph, potentially leading to clogged milk ducts.
