Why do you need a maternity bra?
To provide extra support during your pregnancy and breastfeeding. Maternity bras are available in sizes from 10C through to 18H to fit you comfortably during this time and are ideal not only for the time leading up to the arrival of your newborn baby, but also as nursing bras for breastfeeding.
What to look for in a maternity bra?
As with any bra you are looking for a perfect fit, this is especially important during pregnancy as your breasts become larger and heavier requiring additional support. You will also need to ensure that it is not too tight to avoid the possibility of blocked ducts and mastitis. Other features that you may like your bra to have include wide straps, drop down cups and soft underwires. From there it comes down to personal preference.
