Maternity bra fitting

Anyone have any particularly good recommendations to get fitted for maternity bras? I went to M&S last time who I thought were a bit crap. I went to Mother care for nursing bras who were good at the fitting but had a pretty poor selection. Good fitting and nice bras would be good. TIA.

Hello, I second the crap bras at m&s.

Debenhams have a wide range of maternity and other non underwired bras, and plenty that are not too cheap.

I like the Royce bras stocked in JL. They don't keep many in stock though, so I ended up ordering online.

Hot milk are good - online only.

Get fitted at mother care then buy elsewhere. Also, I found bra extenders life savers when I was pregnant with ds1. They make strap that goes around your middle longer so you can wear a normal bra, as long as it's not underwired.

no don't get fitter in Mothercare, they have no idea. Try Bravissimo. And it's fine to wear underwired bras when pregnant or breastfeeding as well, as long as they fit.

Bravissimo. Without a doubt. M&S are terrible. I got two nursing bras from bravissimo when i was nine months pregnant, seven months on they are still the only bras i have worn. They are expensive but you get what you pay for.

Ah yes! They are right- Bravissimo is what you need.

I was fitted at m&s earlyish on in my pregnancy and it was suggested I get some t shirt bras which I've been wearing-they're comfy but don't look nice and the cups have gone a bit misshapen in the wash but I'm not too fussed. I second using bra extenders as my chest circumference just seems to keep expanding but cup size has stayed the same.

I second bravissimo and the fact that nothing bad will happen to you in a well fitting under-wired bra
