Hi I am a new mum and have been out looking for decent looking maternity bras and even nice briefs to match but I'm struggling to find any! What are your thoughts on maternity underwear and where do you shop?? Help!

I've had all mine from mothercare. Nothing is overly glamorous but relatively decent matching sets. You just end up paying the earth for them! X

Hot milk do a range

Thanks both smile And do you recommend underwired? I'm worried about support, I've been recommended sports type sleep bras

You're not meant to wear underwired when pregnant that's why mat bras are all wire free, something to do with potentially damaging milk ducts I believe but not 100% xx

I just buy regular non-wired bra's.
I don't find there's any point spending out for "maternity" bra's until needing nursing bra's with the drop down cup.

Depends on your size, but there are no non underwire maternity bras for 32 i! I think as long as it's not overly tight you should be fine.

I think the whole no under wired thing is an old wives tale. I wear my under wired bras for the day and then at night these kind of things



They are super comfy and look great with the matching pants

Yep, the non wired thing is nonsense. Underwires are never supposed to be on your breast tissue anyway so you just make sure whatever you get fits you well/comfortably and lifts your breasts as far off your bump s possible during pregnancy.
Hotmilk do good pretty sets but whatever you decide, make sure you get fitted properly.

Thank you everyone for your advice! Pinkcandyflossy love that idea, really pretty bralettes....I've seen the most awful looking nursing bras. Just because I'm pregnant it shouldn't mean I need to wear ugly lingerie!!

The nothing wrong with wires as long as they fit correctly.

natasha absolutely! The ones I've seen are all thick straps, some kind of beige colour and are sure to transform our round nice looking pregnancy boobs into unsupported, old lady ones - no thanks!

I've also a few funky sports bras too that I wear under a racer back vest for a different super comfy weekend look smile

I'm 20 weeks and so far in normal underwear . The maternity stuff is way too frumpy for my liking, so I'm hoping I can hold out. Seriously, it's like the designers think that as soon as you're pregnant you turn into your grandmother. Utterly depressing.

Blueskyrain agreed! New Look have a maternity range I wasn't aware of, you should have a look smile

Morning smile finally managed to find myself a nice set but was hard with all the 2packs in stores!! Is it better to settle on a 2 pack and let it last me??
