About Me

Admit it. Most nursing bras are kind of industrial-looking. At least that is what I thought when I was shopping around for a nursing bra. I also found that while breastfeeding is natural and wonderful, it is also difficult and complex and sometimes it really hurts! The best advice I could find was to use warm compresses before nursing and cold compresses afterwards. But nobody could give me any tips for how to make the whole compress thing practical or COMFORTABLE! So, my design was patented and Nizo Wear was born. I firgured while I was at it I should make them pretty as well. Nizo Wear makes nursing bras that are de both functional and pretty. Lace and rhinestones, playful prints, shapely lines, all designed to help you feel stylish and good again.

Tips you always wish you knew on how to get the right bra fit

Tips you always wish you knew on how to get the right bra fit
1.The bra should be quite firm around the body, and ideally fitted on the 3rd eye adjustment.
2.Shoulder straps loosened or tightened as necessary.
3.Breasts well enclosed within the cup.
4.Center front going back reasonably well to chest wall.
5.Snug fit at neck and underarm edges (not too tight and not gaping)

Here are some solutions to common bra issues:

Problem: Back Rides Up

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. 

Problem: Shoulder straps fall down

Solution: If adjusting them fails, try going down a size. Your band should lay level across your back. If the angle of your shoulders are sloped you may want to try a T-back style bra. 

Problem: Cups are wrinkly or gaping  

Solution: If the bra is new, try getting into the bra by bending at your waist and let your breasts fall into the cups. If there is still extra fabric you may need to go down a band 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 either too small or the wrong style. Different brands are shaped and sized very differently so don’t get discouraged. You may simply need to try another brand.

Problem: Spillage

Solution: If you are busting out of the cup anywhere you need to either move up a cup size or pic a shape that offers more coverage on the sides and top. Demi cups are only half cups, they are not mean for coverage. 

Problem: Lack of Support

Solution: The one place that give you the most 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 support is the band and clasp size. A larger band/clasp (three or more) gives you more support. 

Happy bra fitting!
