Here’s a list of stores that sell nursing bras, with some extra emphasis on finding larger sizes based on our mamas’ experiences.
Finding a good nursing bra can be challenging. Pregnant mamas never know ahead of time how big their breasts will become after childbirth. First-time mamas need to investigate different kinds of nursing bra openings and fabrics to get comfortable with the whole process. Experienced mamas don't always find the same bras work the next time around. We have compiled a list of physical and online stores that sell nursing bras to fit even the bigger-breasted women among us, and that vary in style, from practical to romantic to downright sexy!
Please note: we have attempted to include accurate return policies, especially in regard to online shopping, but it is always important to double check before buying so you are not surprised.

Shopping Online and Returns
If you buy goods online in the Netherlands (or indeed anywhere in the EU) you have the right to return your order within 14 days for any reason and with no justification. You will need to notify the supplier, usually via a special form downloaded from their website. In the event of a return, companies are not obliged to cover shipping costs. Obviously, goods must be returned undamaged and with their original tags attached. In the case of nursing bras, we caution you to be particularly careful: think of trying on a new bra over one you already own, or using nursing pads to avoid staining.
