The Cake Maternity Zest delivers on all fronts with this wire-free maternity sports bra.

The extended band has 5 hook-and-eye placements so you can cinch up or let it out as needed, and the wide padded straps disperse pressure for increased comfort. If you’re nursing, the cups drop down for easy access.

Love and Fit’s top-selling nursing sport bra has been redesigned, with firmer fabric that gives stronger support and a convertible back: wear the straps conventionally over your shoulders or cross them in back for varying support or to suit your outfit.

Just because you have a little on the way doesn’t mean that you need to stop moving, in fact, women are encouraged to continue their exercise routine during pregnancy.

But thanks to your pregnancy hormones and the realities of breastfeeding, your breasts will likely be tender and your nipples extra sensitive, which means you will want a sports bra made to provide you additional comfort and support for your prenatal and postpartum workouts.

While some sports bras in your closet may fit during pregnancy, many women find it necessary to invest in a maternity sports bra or two. Be prepared for your bra size (cup size and band size) to change a few times throughout your pregnancy and postpartum journey as your body makes room for your growing baby and prepares for breastfeeding.

Investing in a sports bra made specifically for pregnant and nursing moms will help to support your larger, heavier breasts, alleviating discomfort you might experience during a workout.
