Velcro Straps on Juno; Back Closure on Fiona; Front J-Hook on Grace II
It can be tricky for nursing mothers to find a sports bra that delivers on all fronts. Performance on the run, comfort and easy accessibility are all key features to look for when selecting a sports bra to use while you are nursing. To support your efforts to train hard through every stage of your life, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite bras for nursing moms. Check ‘em out here:
Modesty: Moving Comfort Juno Bra
The Moving Comfort Juno Bra has a substantial liner and a nice high neckline that adds a little extra modesty for the woman who wants to move seamlessly from her run to her life-about-town. This bra offers appropriate support for a DD cup size for high impact activities. If you feel that you need more support than usual because of fuller cups, reach for the Juno and head out for your run with security. The Juno also has adjustable Velcro straps that allow you to quickly and easily unfasten one side of your bra to nurse.
Easy On-and-Off: Moving Comfort Fiona Bra
We love the simplicity of the Fiona Bra. The back closure on this bra makes it easy to slip in and out of, so you won’t feel like you have to win a wrestling match to get your bra on. Soft adjustable Velcro straps and stretch fabric allow you to easily unfasten a strap and slip one side of this bra down to nurse. The Fiona is so soft and comfortable it can even be worn all day as an alternative to a nursing bra.
Front Closure: Moving Comfort Grace II Bra
Zip through your day – and your run – in the Moving Comfort Grace II. This update to the Grace Bra flaunts a slimmed-down, streamlined design and a new front j-hook closure that makes zipping this bra on and off even easier. When putting this bra on, fasten the j-hook in the front to hold the bra closed, and then zip the bra up. Front closure allows you to easily unzip and unclip to nurse. The Grace II has a slightly lower neckline, so it is ideal for smaller busted women.

Zoot’s published stack heights are 15mm in the forefoot and 25mm in the heel, lowering the entire shoe by 4mm for a closer to the ground feel.
