When you are pregnant your bra size can vary from two sizes larger to as much as four sizes larger. Most expectant mothers experience growing breasts well before a growing tummy and many outgrow their fashion bras early in pregnancy.


The increase in weight and size of the breast during pregnancy will cause the skin to stretch and the breast to drop, which is why it is important for pregnant women to be fitted for a new bra regularly.


When you feel that your breasts are changing and your fashion bras are becoming uncomfortable you should be fitted. Pregnant and nursing women should try to avoid wearing underwired bras unless their fitting is checked regularly, this is because breast size can change very quickly during pregnancy and a badly fitting bra can cause breast soreness, lumps and cysts. We would advise that you wear a non wired, soft bra with a high cotton content to let skin breathe.


Emma-Jane and Royce maternity bras are stocked here at Close Essentials, these have wider straps, sides and underbust band, to help eliminate 'bounce' and to give extra support. There is more fabric over the breast area, providing increased comfort and there are a minimum of four rows of back eyes.
