Maternity: When to Shop for Maternity Bras
Shop for maternity bras in the First and Second Trimester of your pregnancy
A maternity bra differs from a normal bra in that it is designed with the changes to a woman’s body during pregnancy in mind.
Many maternity bras feature molded cups or seam-free cups so there are no seams to irritate sore or sensitive breast tissue.
Maternity bras are typically made of a material with some give and stretch, to be more forgiving as breast size changes. They tend to have wider straps and a wider band to provide good support to swelling breasts. And they’re designed with comfort in mind.
A good maternity bra would mitigate many of the discomforts you’re having!
You'll be making the switch from maternity bras to nursing bras very soon.
