Pregnancy can bring about various changes in a woman's body, and these changes can also affect breast size and comfort. As the breasts undergo hormonal changes and preparation for breastfeeding, it's common for pregnant women to experience an increase in breast size, tenderness, and sensitivity. An essential item when you’re pregnant is a bra that supports but doesn’t compress your breasts during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Don’t overlook the importance of wearing the right kind of maternity bra so that you’re comfortable day and night. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about maternity bras for pregnancy and postpartum.

Why Do You Need a Maternity Bra?

During pregnancy, your body undergoes several changes including breast size and shape, so a regular bra may no longer fit you or provide adequate support or comfort. Maternity bras are specially designed with stretchy fabric and adjustable straps that can accommodate your changing breast size throughout pregnancy and postpartum.

When Should You Start Wearing a Maternity Bra?

Per BabyCenter, they suggest buying “maternity bras as soon as your regular bras feel tight or uncomfortable. For many women, this starts happening when you're around six weeks pregnant.”
