UNDERWEAR.CO.UK – OUR MATERNITY UNDERWEAR BUYING GUIDE
Whether you’re expecting the patter of tiny feet or you’ve just had your baby, choose from a range of specially designed underwear to support you on your journey.
Maternity underwear is an essential for pregnant and new mums. With boobs rapidly changing during and after pregnancy, a maternity bra will help to keep your boobs supported and comfortable. To go with your bra choose maternity knickers, which are designed with a supportive waistband, extra room for your tummy, and a breathable cotton design.
Choosing the right style:
There are lots of different maternity bras designed to suit every woman and every stage:
Maternity support bra – for gentle support
Maternity sleep bra – to provide gentle support at night and to hold breast pads in place if required
Nursing bra – for breastfeeding mums, these bras have nursing clips to allow the cups to be dropped.
Choosing the right size:
If you are measuring yourself at home, it may be easier to simply look at the fit of your bra. The band should be comfortable and not too tight, and your boobs should not be spilling out of the cups. If you see either of those, it’s time to go up a back or cup size. Remember that your boobs, tummy and hips will be rapidly changing throughout and after your pregnancy, so it’s important to keep measuring yourself to keep yourself comfortable.
