What is a maternity bra?

A plus size maternity bra is specially designed to support a woman’s breasts through the changes experienced during and after pregnancy. Maternity bras come in a range of different styles, shapes, sizes and colours. They can be padded with foam, unpadded, or provide a firm structure depending on your needs and preferences. 

Maternity bras are helpful in providing additional support for women who have heavier chests, ensuring that you’re supported and that the weight is evenly distributed. A correctly fitted maternity bra that is fitted to your specific measurements can offer you comfort and support throughout your pregnancy, so professional fittings are recommended. Connect with our expert Bra Fitters today and find the best-suited bra for you.

How to choose a plus size maternity bra?

Choosing the right plus size maternity bra will depend on your new lifestyle, what stage of the pregnancy you’re at and also whether you’re breastfeeding your baby. The Australian Breastfeeding Association recommends getting professionally fitted for a bra around sixteen weeks when your breasts will usually have undergone the bulk of their changes. Some women may outgrow their bras earlier, while others might not experience much fluctuation at all, so it really depends on the individual experience. 

Fabric is one aspect you shouldn't ignore. Cotton, for example, is less likely to irritate your skin. Additionally, seamless knit bras are less likely to chafe, and they can stretch a few cup sizes, which is crucial during those transitional pregnancy stages. In the summertime, if you are prone to excessive sweating, you can opt for a fabric that wicks moisture away from the body. 

You can also look for nursing bras that are designed to allow access for breastfeeding through either of the cups, so you don’t have to take the entire bra off. Look for plus size breastfeeding bras that clasp at the front for easy access. You might even prefer to invest in a specially designed maternity sleep bra to provide your chest support while you sleep. At Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore, we strive to make our lingerie as comfortable as possible for mums who will be wearing it all day long.

How to wear a plus size maternity bra? 

Wearing a plus size maternity bra will depend on the style of maternity bra you buy. During the pregnancy, you want the maternity bra to sit comfortably without feeling it digging into your skin where the band, cup, and straps are concerned. When you’re nursing, you want a bra that allows you to move freely without feeling constricted or experiencing too much pressure on your chest. For breastfeeding maternity bras, easy access and clasping will be handy. Your professional virtual Bra Fitter can discuss your needs, take your measurements and recommend a range of products that will be a great fit for you.
