Maternity Bras

No one wants to waste time and money on getting maternity bras that don't fit or are uncomfortable to wear. Finding the right maternity bra can be a struggle but you don't have to go through it alone. At Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore online, we can help you choose the best maternity nursing bras for your body type and lifestyle.

What are maternity bras?

Maternity bras are designed to provide support for your changing shape and the needs of breastfeeding. They are available in various shapes, styles, and colours. Some come as strapless bras or have racerback designs. One option is an underwire bra that gives you all-day comfort with moulded cups created explicitly for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. 

Are maternity bras necessary for every mum-to-be?

If you're looking to make your nursing journey as comfortable and easy as possible, then a pregnancy bra is an essential item. A maternity bra provides support in all the right places during those early stages of pregnancy and later stages of breastfeeding.

When should you start wearing maternity bras?

Ideally, you should start wearing a maternity bra from around the third month of your pregnancy. This is when your breasts are most likely to begin feeling sore and tender as they increase in size. Doing this will help you avoid potential discomfort later on and will also aid in preventing stretching of your skin.

At this stage, you should wear a bra that has an underwire and gives good support around your back while also helping to avoid any gaps between the cup and breast tissue, leading to irritation or sores. 

Maternity bras with cups that are too wide will cause discomfort as they can’t provide the necessary support for your breasts. Meanwhile, a bra with cups that are too close together will cause discomfort in later months when you've gained weight, and breast tissue is beginning to sag.

What size maternity bra should you buy?

Maternity bras can be particularly tricky if you've had a baby before. Even with the same person, different pregnancies will often lead to different size requirements, so always read the sizing guidelines when trying something on.

Bras are measured in two ways: band and cup sizes, of which there is no universal conversion from one type to another; what works for someone else may not work for you depending on your shape and breast changes during pregnancy.

Bra size is determined by measuring underbust circumference or chest girth (i.e., around the rib cage just below the breasts), then dividing that number by two. This measurement corresponds closely with actual bra/cup measurements.

Most bras come up small, especially at the first stages of pregnancy so expect to be going up at least one or two sizes.

What should I look for during my search?

There's no one-size-fits-all approach here. It can be tricky finding a perfect match if you don't know what qualities you're looking for. That's why we've put together this guide so that new mums will know how to choose a nursing or pregnant bra.

1. Bra size

The most important factors to consider when you go shopping for maternity bras are your under-bust, and-girth measurements. These measurements correspond closely with your actual bra/cup size and will help you find the most appropriate style for your changing body.

2. Support

A good maternity or nursing bra should offer support and a comfortable fit that accommodates fluctuating weight. A well-fitting bra should have a wide band at the back for extra support and let it stay in place no matter how much you move around.

3. Fabric

Bras are made from different fabrics, each with its unique qualities. You can take your pick from cotton, spandex, or latex.

4. Comfort

You can choose from a variety of styles such as bralettes, crop tops, sports bras, or camisoles, which will be more comfortable for you as your body changes.

5. Cost

A maternity bra's price depends on the fabric and style that it's made from, plus any additional features like underwire or padding.

6. Customisation

Sometimes, getting a standard size may not work because bras come in different shapes and sizes to accommodate your changing body.

7. Style

New moms often opt for a simple style that offers the coverage and support they need without compromising comfort.

8. Shape

As your body changes, you'll want to try feeding bras with different shapes. For example, going from a full coverage bra to a balconette bra or full coverage to a plunge bra.Whichever maternity bra you'll pick, ensure it's soft and comfortable to put on, considering how extra tender your breasts are.
