    of course it is, it is onle thing being comfortable, it is another thing to look like you have a set of cow udders under your t-shirt!

    I went up a cup size at about 12-14 weeks, and it was amazing. The most comfortable thing ever! I went for an underwire, but a softish stretchy cup - touched by Berlei is the name of the bra. Super comfy.
    Then at about 24 weeks I bought two maternity bras because I had started leaking, and was told that mastitis (which is what you can develop from blocked milk ducts) is about the worst thing around.
    I still sneak into my old bras sometimes, I'm waiting til my milk comes in before I buy anymore - although I might by some cheaper maternity bras for sleeping in. The elle ones are $55, and too nice to kill by sleeping in them.....

    Hi Nic,

    I think you will find they are refering to a Maternity Bra

    I just went for biger sized normal bras cos my boobs just kept getting bigger & bigger! I have gone from a 12A to a 14C :shock:

    I do have 2 maternity bras now, but they are packed into my hospital bag - the last thing I want is for them to be in the wash when I go into hospital.

    Are the maternity bras supportive enough for exercise??? I'm a dance teacher and will have to teach for the majority of p/g but I don't want to wear underwires if they are not good for you.

    Perhaps a mat bra teamed with a sports top???

    I was a 12dd or a 14D depending on brand, and have just this morning (at only just over 4 weeks pg) had to go out and buy a couple of 14DDs. I really hope they don't get bigger than this! I got underwire just cos I've never felt supported in a soft-cup, but maybe the mat ones offer better support? Next time I'm at shops I'll get fitted properly...
