What Kind Of Bra Should I Wear While Pregnant?

March 25, 2021

When you are pregnant, the one obvious effect it has is on your clothes. You need to buy bigger sizes to keep yourself comfortable, and this holds good for both outer and inner wear. It's important to support your changing breasts with a good bra that fits you properly. 
The best type of bra to wear during pregnancy is a comfortable, supportive maternity bra. A good maternity bra will have wider shoulder straps than a fashion bra. It should also have support panels and adjustable back fastenings so it can expand to fit you as your body changes.


There are two important things to keep in mind.

1. Most women don’t have the correct bra size. Get fitted. Most stores will do this for free.

2. You might need nursing pads before your baby even comes. Your milk is coming in and it can leak as your pregnancy progresses. Pads can be tucked into your bra for protection. Some are disposable, or you can purchase washable ones.

When you’re shopping for a bra, make sure it fits you well. A well-fitted bra can provide you the right support so your back or shoulders don’t feel strained because of it.  You may need a new bra sooner than you think to keep up with the changes in your breast size during pregnancy. So keep measuring yourself as your pregnancy progresses.

Please note: Do not buy a ‘normal bra’ in a bigger size; the fabric and structure of a normal bra is not designed to support and accommodate the breasts and body during pregnancy and early motherhood. Normal bras have under wires which don't allow for growth and can result in extreme discomfort if worn all throughout pregnancy. Once nursing, a 'normal bra' is then even more impractical as it doesn't have drop down cups like the convenient and comfy ones from Irotica for easy access nursing and they're also somewhat dangerous as they increase the likelihood of mastitis which is blocked and infected milk ducts due to their restrictive under wires and harsher materials.


Why do I need a bra that will grow with my breasts?

It makes smart economic sense to purchase quality bras that will cater to your breasts throughout pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding. Having a baby can be expensive, so you'll want to avoid making costly mistakes and buy right, the first time. Spend money on pregnancy bras that will cater to all the various stages of pregnancy and postpartum, whilst always providing comfort, support and flexibility.

Here's your ultimate checklist:

  • Have no underwire.
  • Are soft and stretchy, yet provide plenty of support.
  • Have a lot of adjustability around the band.
  • Have a lot of room for stretching around the under-bust and around the back.
  • Accommodate a pregnant woman’s tender, sensitive and growing breasts.
  • Fit during all three trimesters and throughout breastfeeding.
  • Have specially designed drop down cups for easy access nursing.
  • Allow for fluctuations in the ribcage and bust.
  • Have soft fabric on the inside of the cups so there's less aggravation to the breasts and nipples.

After a few months of feeding, your breasts will settle down and can reduce in size. You’ll be thankful you purchased a quality pregnancy bra at this point as you’ll be able to adjust it accordingly. A good
