Hi Ladies, I just wondered if anyone has experience they're bras strinking!! I mean I'm only 11+3 and my bra is killing me!! Do maternity bras exist? Like a lovely comfortable stretchy one?? Any recommendations?

Your bra is not shrinking (assuming that's what you're asking)- your bust is growing.

Loads of maternity bras around, but the only thing that makes it 'maternity' is not being underwired.

If the back band is getting tight, you can buy bra extenders

I was just wondering about bras as well. Are maternity bras designed to grow with the growing bust, or does it just mean they have like two layers to allow for breastfeeding?

Do the breasts keep growing throughout pregnancy or only once at the begining and then once the milk comes in?

I just buy non -underwired bras in a bigger size (currently 19 weeks pregnant).

You can get nursing bras but they are in my experience very expensive and you don't need them during pregnancy.

I would recommend going up a band size (or two!!) because even if you don't put on much weight your ribs expand.

Really, wow!?

yes as baby gets bigger, your uterus gets up to the bottom of your rib cage and pushes it out.

There is such a thing as a 'maternity' bra rather than a nursing bra but as I say, having bought some, they're just unattractive non-wired jobs, but do have extra back fastening range

I've tried a variety as I've had to buy 3 new sets as cup sizes went up. They've calmed down now, at least til milk comes in.

Nursing bras are the jobs with the clips to fold down the cup and let boob out for baby. And don't have to be that expensive
