Throughout your pregnancy and after your baby is born, your body will continue to change and you’ll need comfortable, supportive bras that work with your developing shape. Between eight and ten weeks of pregnancy, you may begin to find that you’ve started to outgrow your usual bra. This is the ideal time to invest in a well-designed maternity bra to keep you comfortable and well-supported in the coming months.
When shopping for your first maternity bra, look for wide, firm, elastic straps and an under-bust band for extra support. Bras made of cotton will be breathable and comfortable to wear, while styles with four hook fastening options at the back will allow for adjustments as your baby and body grow together.
It’s a good idea to go for a professional fitting every couple of months throughout your pregnancy and when breastfeeding, to ensure your bra fits comfortably. You may even want to start wearing a soft sleeping bra from the second trimester onwards, to keep you comfortable and supported while you sleep.
The best time to look for a nursing bra is when you’re around eight months pregnant. A good nursing bra should be flexible, allowing extra room for when your milk comes in. It should feel never constricted or tight, even when closed. Look for wide, non-slip shoulder straps and broad sides for extra support. Cup fastenings that you can open and close with one hand are also ideal for feeding.
