If you’re expecting a little bundle of joy, have just had one or are planning to, you really should consider what underwear you wear during these times. Throughout pregnancy and for quite a while afterwards, especially breast feeding mums, may experience swollen and sore boobs. It is therefore important to give your boobs the correct support to avoid any further discomfort as boobs can change size throughout pregnancy. We’d also recommend wearing a non-wired bra just after the baby’s birth as this will give your boobs time to settle down. If you’re planning on breast feeding we can fit you for a nursing bra, however, we advise this is left until around the 36th week, at this point you will be closest to the size you will be when the baby is born. For further advice or if you have questions just pop into a store or go online, and see Bravissimo’s range of nursing bras.
Our boobs naturally change shape and size throughout our lifetime so it’s a good idea to check your bra fit every once in a while to ensure you’re wearing the right size and that your boobs haven’t changed too much so that they no longer feel comfortable in your current underwear. Here are some signs that might indicate that you need to re-check your size;
- If the bra seems to fit ok but is uncomfortable, the style might simply need changing. Different women prefer different styles of bra as these styles will fit different women in different ways. As long as the bra fit and is comfortable to wear then its thumbs up!
- If the band of the bra is digging in or feels too slack then this needs to be changed, if the bra band isn’t tight enough then your boobs won’t be getting the support they need.
- If you feel like your boobs are popping over the top of your boob, giving a ‘four-boob’ effect then the cup size might need changing.
It’s a good idea to check for these signs every once in a while as sometimes changes happen over a period of time so aren’t as noticeable. If you’re unsure just pop in and speak with one of fitters, they’re very helpful and will help you to find the perfect fit.
