Hi all,
Any recommendations for maternity bras please would be most welcome! I’m 17 weeks and I’ve gone up 2/3 sizes to about a G/H cup.
I’ve got a few sports bra type ones at the moment as things are still very sensitive in that region, but they’re now resting on my ever growing bump and everything is becoming increasingly uncomfortable!
Thank you in advance! X

Bumping as I'd like advice on this too!

I bought tons- favourites are from bravado and Emma Jane x

I moved into bralets first (DD+ size 8 for 30E) they have others which go up to G/H cup. I found them to be a bit more flexible than bras which was good whilst I was still growing - back size and cup size.

I then moved to these bras from asda (S still fits now at 30F without padding). It might fit G/H cups but I would recommend the general style/material. They are like comfy pj's and I now use them as my night nursing bras

Once my supply settled down after birth I bought two Freya nursing bras which are comfy and pretty. They fit as expected based on my bust and under bust measurements

The bralets were in M and s

The hot milk underwired one is incredible. To me all the non wired ones are really unflattering but this one gives very good shape and is actually really pretty! It’s expensive but so so worth it!

Thank you. I’ve got the bralette type at the minute and don’t feel like they’re very supportive! But they are primark specials so may be why! Think I’ll have to invest in some underwired nursing ones! Xx

I always thought wires weren’t recommended during later pregnancy and nursing?
I went to bravissimo, they measure you properly so you can get some comfortable bras that are supportive and fit

I’m only 17 weeks at the moment so have looked at some of the flexiwire ones which I’m guessing are ok? There seems to be some nursing ones as well.
My only worry is that they don’t seem to have stopped growing! 😂
Might take a trip there over the weekend, although I’m not sure if anywhere is doing fittings at the moment? X

I wouldn’t waste your money this early, they are just going to get bigger. I got some bralets from M&S

I bought a 3 pack of non wired bralets yesterday from primark for £10 and they're fine for now! They have adjustable straps too and are very comfy plus supportive enough I feel. I didn't want to spend too much as I know I'll just grow more as PP said
