Hi, I have my 12 week scan Tuesday! I'm keeping everything crossed this baby is here to stay! I woke up this morning and all of a sudden my boobs are hurting more than before and my mind was racing down the bra isle! Do I go all out and spend on a maternity bra or do I but a few sports bras? Love to hear what you guys are thinking! X
I got a twin pack of black/white sports bras from m&s at about 12 weeks I think. I'm now 29+4 and they are still comfy and wearable, so hopefully can hold out until I need a nursing bra (whatever that is!).
I am also wearing fetching bra extenders as well. Godsend.
Sounds good to me I was hoping someone would say sports bra lol would be much cheaper! I think nursing bras are a breast feeding gadget! Lol with hooks etc all over the place to make an easy exit for the boob lol
I wouldn't bother with a maternity Bra just yet. Im 18 weeks and have gone up 3 sizes already (and they are still growing!!). I have just been buting the cheapy £4 bra's in primark and was going to wait until my bump got a bit bigger before in invest as thats when people have said their rib cage has expanded. Hope you find something a bit comfyer! and congratulations
Wouldn't bother with maternity bras yet, just buy cheap and comfy as your size may keep changing.
Sports bras good for comfort but don't always look great under clothes. I've just found some non-underwired t-shirt bras in M&S which hit the mark in terms of being both comfortable and giving clean lines under your clothes.
I got bra extenders to get a bit more wear out of the bras I have before picking up a few cheapies at outlets & sales. was a 30 back now 32 at 18wks which can be a little snug, bra extenders are great little things. inly 99p ish on ebay
It depends how sore you are. A combination of (large) sore breasts and ridiculously sensitive nipples meant that sports bras just did not cut it for me during the day. I bought a lowest impact sports bra to sleep in and a Miriam Stoppard nurture for day. It was the only maternity bra that made my boobs look normal under clothes and I wore it to death over the next 9 months.
I second the suggestion to try and buy cheap ones - I'm 19 weeks and have gone through 3 different sizes (and several new bras). I still like to wear underwired ones during the day but as soon as I get home from work I stick on one of the 'comfort bras' I bought from asda maternity for £6 - they are a godsend - boobs now hurt so much less
Last time I got measured I was a 36E so ideally if they grow even more a hammock will be in place lol This is my 5th pregnancy but has to be my first baby so thanks for all the good lucks Tuesday will be a nerve wrecking day! X
I got two nursing bras from Amoralia that I am using as maternity bras right now, and then can also (obvs) use for nursing. Bought two wonderful sleep bras from them too, that I sometimes wear during the day.
As a side note, also just got one of those jeans extender panels that hooks onto your button and they are the BEST things!
