Do I Really Need a Maternity Bra? What to Wear When Pregnant

Breasts are supported by ligaments as opposed to muscle, making them much more susceptible to hormonal changes. During the first trimester your breasts may swell, or feel uncomfortable, and your current bra may be contributing to that.

Why wire-free?

Most healthcare professionals advise against wearing wired bras during pregnancy. Non-wired bras will accommodate changes more comfortably, and won’t dig into sensitive breast tissue. It’s important to opt for a fully supportive non-wired bra, to help your breasts to retain shape post pregnancy and beyond.

We’ve put together a round-up of our favourite maternity / nursing bras to give you an idea of what’s out there. Ideally, you should get your breasts professionally measured during your first trimester, and again if your bra starts to feel uncomfortable. Breasts can increase by up to 2lbs in pregnancy, so be prepared for the many changes ahead!
