When it comes to your breasts, being pregnant is a whole new ballgame. You might notice the changes even before you’ve taken a pregnancy test – the tingling, the dull ache and the seemingly overnight increase in cup size.

Being pregnant is a long journey that can be full of discomfort, so it’s important to wear the right bra throughout.

Here’s what to look for when choosing a plus size maternity bra:

The big C – comfort!

As soon as your bras start to feel tight it’s time to make the switch to a maternity bra with soft wide straps, extra hooks and eyes and supportive cups. It might feel right to give up on traditional underwire while you’re expecting and go for a flattering soft cup or flexible underwire bra.

The right size

To begin with you’ll probably only go up a cup size, but you might find that as your pregnancy progresses you’ll be upgrading one more time. While it might feel frustrating to be outlying money for new bras – you won’t regret it! Pregnancy is a rollercoaster and you’ll feel best if you’re strapped in properly for the ride!

Blest Bras has a flexible returns policy that allows you to try your bras and make sure they’re perfect for you – if not, just send them back with the tags attached and we’ll gladly refund your money. We recommend that you try your new maternity bra on for half an hour or so before deciding if it’s the right fit.

A sleeping bra

The change in your breasts during pregnancy can be uncomfortable, particularly if you’re a plus size bra girl to begin with. Reduce the sleepless nights with a comfy night bra that doesn’t dig in.

Bravado's Original Nursing Bras offers soft cup comfort and back support to ensure a good night’s rest throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

A touch of lady-like flair

You may be pregnant, but you’re still you! It’s important to feel feminine as well as comfortable with a little lace and glam.

Hotmilk's Eclipse Nursing Bra comes in black and nude lace, in sizes 10C to 20H and has gorgeous matching underwear.

Options for nursing and beyond

Once baby comes – get ready for your cup to runneth over! In the beginning you’ll be amazed at how different your breasts are. Again, comfort is your number one priority, as well as a bra that’s easy to get in and out of when you’re feeding your new little treasure.
