As with all bras, finding the right fit can be a challenge. It is the same process as with standard bras, the band under your bust should sit flat across your back not riding upwards. Avoiding any cutting in on your breast tissue is important. Bras which are too tight can restrict the flow and amount of milk produced – so it is important to change to to a Maternity/Nursing bra after you feel like your non-maternity bras are uncomfortable and no longer fitting or offering the right support. You may find your cup sizes change as your pregnancy progresses, every pregnancy and woman is different, however you may find you need to go up 3-4 cup sizes and increase your band size as your baby grows. Further changes can occur during the nursing cycle, when your milk flow comes in you may increase in the cup size before your bust size settles again. This great video can help you check if you have the right size.
As soon as your body starts showing the signs of pregnancy, your breasts are going to need all the support they can get. To give them a bit of well-deserved TLC, make sure you invest in a fitted maternity bra. Getting measured is a simple way of ensuring that you're fully supported and it's also easy to do – drop by a mothercare shop for a quick and helpful fitting.
