Pretty, comfortable support bras?

Wore the basic Mothercare ones last time round but could really do with something prettier this time ....

Not keen on Bravissimo, Elle McPherson doesn't seem to fit me ... not looking for anything particularly fancy, just something vaguely nice

Will you be breastfeeding? I bought nursing bras to wear at the later stages of pregnancy, saved buying them later on.

I have several from mothercare and they are not too bad actually (I know you said you didn't likme them).

I can't do links but on the mothercare website under nursing bras, there is a black fashion one at the bottom of the first page and in my store (its not on-line) I got a green one with pink on the straps (sounds gross but it is nice!).

Thanks Mum2Ela - yes I did the same with nursing bras last time but I'm only 16 weeks at the moment so not in my full glory yet IYKWIM Will check out the new Mothercare styles though - thanks

franch - have you tried figleaves? not a massive range, but a few pretty things.
also, john lewis do maternity bras (although mostly boring!!)
other than that, the catalogues all do them:
jojomamanbebe and blooming marvellous might be worth a look.
sorry for the lack of links, but google is a wonderful thing!!
hope that helps...

Mum2Ela I finally got round to looking at the Mothercare site - their styles are a big improvement on a couple of years ago - may go for one of these - thanks

They are pretty thick too which means you cannot see any of the breast pad (if you wear them) thru your clothes. Cor, I sound like I work for them!
