    Maybe the sensation of it being tight is due to your milk letting down when you feed? So maybe it is actually your boobs feeling tight/full rather than the bra actually being tighter?

    Itchiness could be the same? Worse scenario would be thrush on your boob or nipple? But I don't think it would only be itchy when you feed, I think that would be itchy all the time?

    Good luck x.

    I would suggest let down too, rather than anything to do with the bra. Maybe try feeding/getting a letdown without the bra on and see whether it feels the same.
