    I’ve never heard of that. You make milk in your breast. The wire isn’t touching it.

    I have 2 kids and I wore underwire bras all through my pregnancies and had milk like a Jersey cow! HAHA. Even my nursing bras were underwire.

    They do not ‘damage’ your milk. Its all a comfort thing!

    The underwire will hurt a bit once your belly is pressing under your breasts, but other than minor discomfort underwire isn’t a problem. :)

    I wore them all the way through all 5 of my pregnancy’s and it never damaged my milk. i love under wire bras..

    i got told to stop wearing them as soon as i found out i was pregnant, and not only so it does not damage your milk, but also because it restricts and cuts into the vessels, sometimes causing infection, which cant be treated while you are pregnant because of the antibiotics

    it does not damage your milk…? Wear it til it uncomfortable this is my second doctors have never said such thing and your milk doesnt even come in until the baby is a few days old

    I took a prenatal class when I was pregnant and that question was asked… the nurses told us that it is not true that the wire in and under wire bra damages the breast milk, it has no effect what so ever.

    you can wear them as long as you want.
