During pregnancy, you will notice changes in your bust occurring due to milk production and diaphragm expansion. The size and weight of your bust will change with pregnancy too. At La Donna Lingerie, we want you to be as comfortable as possible during your pregnancy and also whilst breastfeeding and so we aim to get you fitted into a maternity bra that suits your individual requirements.
You may find that you’ll need more than one fitting during your pregnancy which is why we recommend having your first fitting at around three months and a second at around seven months.
Gone are the days of only being able to get an ugly beige maternity bra! We have some really elegant, feminine and modern maternity bras by Hot Milk and Panache as well as the more classic styles by Triumph, if that’s your preference.
Whilst we do not recommend wearing underwire during pregnancy, especially after three months – we do understand that some people still prefer this option. This means that we do stock some maternity bras that contain flexiwire which is not quite as rigid as regular underwire and still allows for that support and bust separation that many of us have become accustomed to.
We must reiterate the risks of wearing an underwire bra during pregnancy and breastfeeding which include placing unnecessary pressure on milk ducts and soft tissue which could lead to blockage of milk flow and eventuate in mastitis. Our qualified fitters will ensure that your maternity bra fits you perfectly and supports you whilst your body changes during your pregnancy and breastfeeding experiences.
