Getting the right Bra for you.
14 weeks today! Can’t believe it, still can’t believe I’m pregnant.
I’m at the stage now where my breast have tripled in size, I feel like Jessica Rabbit combined with Dolly Parton. It’s strange but I feel so much more confident with my body now than I ever have done, I really am loving it and so is my partner. No more chicken fillets I keep saying, I’m going to make the most of it while it lasts.
The down side is they look great but they don’t feel it. The pain some mornings can be so bad, I literally have to put my arms around them and carry them like I’m carrying massive water melons.
It’s so important that you have a good bra at this stage of your pregnancy that will support you and also give you comfort. I went to M&S the other day and got measured, I felt like a teenager again buying my first bra. I really do think it is important to go for a professional measuring and fitting service, either in a department store or specialist lingerie shop. Once you know your size, you can look at online maternity shops too.
Again when buying a bra there’s so much choice out there on the market, just make sure you try a few on and get the best fit for you.
Here’s a few tips when you’re shopping for a maternity bra, consider the following:
Support: look for wide straps, sides and under-bust band, and a deep centre at the front. Firm elastic straps eliminate bounce and give you extra support.
Coverage: it’s best to have as much fabric as possible over your breasts. This will help you stay comfortable if your breasts become more sensitive.
Adjustability: a minimum of four hook positions will allow your bra to grow with you.
Comfort: look for bras that are mainly cotton. Pregnancy can raise your body temperature, so a cotton bra will reduce irritation and let your skin breathe.
