Eek - super comfortable pregnancy bra recommendation??

There are probably old threads of this, but I know new bras come out all the time.

Anyone got any recommendations? Typical pregnancy bra-size rise and sore boobs means I need a new bra. I don't want to make them look bigger though (why are so many bras padded??), just something comfortable and easy to wear.

Anyone found any gems?

No. Let me know if you do. My boobs have got massive and seem to grow overnight. I have occasionally gone braless if wearing thick jumpers because I can't bare the feeling of bras ATM. I've tried carriway bras (design does a weird scrunching thing at the front) and non-underwired bras from m&s. I've also got some maternity vest tops from topshop with built in support, which are OK, but i'm between an 8/10 and got the 10 and the sizing is very generous (which is odd as I find topshop generally runs on the smaller side, hence why I ordered the 10).

Someone recommended ASDA maternity bras as they are cheap and you can buy new ones as you need. They are next on my list to test.

Good luck with the bra hunt.

Let me know how you get on with Asda, Special Stains! I hear you, all bras I own feel so uncomfortable right now.

I have been googling since I posted this, and found a brand called Hot Milk which looks interesting. Anyone tried?

Any other tips?

I can recommend the one I've got on. Lovely and comfy, and the shape isn't too bad either. Currently 6 months along and hoping it'll last the whole way.

Marks and Spencer's is the one for me. No underwire. Not pretty but hella comfy grin

These are also not pretty but very comfy. They are for nursing too and have a padded bit you can wear in or remove

Bravado seamless silk - £30 but worth every penny!

These are amazingly comfortable so far

I have been living in a Primark sports bra. I have a large chest and find it's soft but still gives me the support I need.

Hamsolo - would def second that recommendation. Very comfy and great for feeding too. I have three on rotation and love them.
