Leakproof Maternity Bra FAQ

You've got questions about maternity bras. We've got the answers! Read on for our most frequently asked questions on the Rose & Thorne Leakproof Maternity Bra.

Will I still feel wet?

The Leakproof Maternity Bra has been specifically designed to keep you feeling dry - it wicks away the moisture into the unique Dry Layer.

How do I wash it?

We recommend you wash your bra on a warm machine wash with the hooks-and-eyes done up and inside a lingerie wash bag. Dry it in a warm dry place out of direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry. Always make sure your Leakproof Maternity Bra is 100% dry before wearing. (Read on for more tips on how to best wash and care for your bra.)

How many Maternity Bras should I buy/will I need?

We recommend at least 3 Leakproof Maternity Bras. Wear one, have one in the wash, and one drying.

Will I still need to wear breast pads?

No! We designed the Leakproof Maternity Bra to wick the moisture away into the Dry Layer. As with all materials (breast pads included), there is a saturation threshold so we suggest wearing the Leakproof Maternity Bra as you would breast pads, making sure to wash your bra daily and ensure it is completely dry before wearing it again.

Can I nurse while wearing the bra?

Absolutely! The Leakproof Maternity Bra has super-easy one-handed drop-down cups, designed with enough room for feeding but enough coverage for modesty.

Can I sleep with it on?

Absolutely! Day or night, the Leakproof Maternity Bra will keep you feeling dry, supported and comfy. However, do keep in mind that if you are sleeping whilst wearing the Leakproof Maternity Bra your breasts can move to one side and can cause milk to roll out of the bra rather than be absorbed.

What is the sizing like?

Our Leakproof Maternity Bra is a very firm bra (unlike lots of other maternity bras). It's been designed to give extra support and shape, particularly for the fuller cups and requires the back of the bra to be firm to achieve this.
