Maternity / feeding bras

My bras are all too tight around my chest, and making me breathless. Been checked by doctor and my chest / ocygen levels all fine. I'm on iron tablets, but the breathlessness and tight chest is worse, when wearing a bra. I find my old underwire bras better than the new ones.

Any recommendations for new bras online. I can't face shopping again.

Can you just get a bra extender? They're cheap on eBay. My maternity bras are too tight now but with 4 weeks to go it wasn't worth buying new ones.

I just bought all my maternity/feeding bras from debenhams, they have some in pretty colours, as well as black and white and generally I found them quite comfortable.

I'd imagine they might have a sale on just now (although maternity bras may not feature in it!)

Look on, they have LOADS of maternity bras! I love Elle Macpherson ones and they have loads of fastenings at the back so you can let them out loads if needed during your pg and bfding time.

I hope you feel better soon.

Bought two bras in M & S, and another in Debenhams. Will try a bra extender. I'm 33 weeks and meant to be a 36F.

for nursing bras
Can't fault them.

Never got on with bra extenders, as the hooks were all in different places.

Someone somewhere was saying how great a croptop style one was, not sized, but came in SML. Can see it tho. Maybe someone else can remember?? I wasn't convinced for the larger chests, but might be worth a go

I had similar problems. I've gone from a 34d pre baby to a 36f and still going! Although baby is now 8 weeks! I'm on my third set of feeding bras as I keep spilling out of them. Debenhams have by far been the most comfortable and supportive, good value too. Hope you find a comfy one soon

I have Bravida bras and I love them. Really soft and stretchy but supportive.

I have a bravdo nursing silk bra and love it. Before that I bought a special one from John Lewis and it didn't work. My breasts were very painful before this bra.
