Hello!
I'm looking for comfy, supportive maternity bra that still gives a nice shape and not sure where to start. This is pregnancy 2 and last time I went to m and s to be measured and whilst the cup was ok the band around was just too rigid and restrictive. I ended up with the bravado bras which I loved for their stretchy band and comfort. This time around though I've just started wearing them at nearly 20 weeks and they just seem to make the bottom of my boobs go into a square shape- attractive hey!!! I'm around a 36E non pregnant and would love to hear about a bra with a stretchy band around under boobs and cups that still allow my boobs to be round and supported- does it exist?!

* sorry, I meant, she was adamant I didn't need the nursing one...

I second what sleepy head said about bra back extenders. They have been a life saver to me when cup size has not changed and to improve comfort. I bought them in white and black. My SiL said they will come in very handy after baby is born too

I found after my fourth child that I went from a 38 under bust measurement when pregnant, down to a 32. I have used bra extenders this time because I ended up going through so many bras last time in a couple of months and they are expensive.

I found Debenhams were good and small independent shops the best for fitting, but not so much choice.

Another vote for Bravissimo - M&S fitted me for these awful 50s style non-wired bras that made me want to cry, having bullied me into not going for wired bras (she also insisted I was a 44C when I have been a 36G for nearly a decade).

I only went up a back and bra size at 20 weeks and although it was £38 it's pretty comfortable and have an extender if it gets tighter.
