If you choose to breast feed your baby it is important that you have a maternity bra that is fitted to you. Your breasts will thank you for being looked after! We would love you to come into our store for a professional fitting at no extra cost. All our maternity product is priced reccomended retail or less so no extra cost for personal service. We are a boutique store with great service and a personally selected range of brands and styles by our buyer (who is a mother of two children herself).
You should stop wearing your underwire bras as soon as your breast change size. For some women this can be in their first trimester for others its around 20 weeks. At 20 weeks you can gernerally go into your final size of maternity bra. We allow for expansion of the rib cage by fitting to the tightest hook at 20 weeks and there are 6 more rows - or about a centimetre a month - for expansion as baby pushes out your floating ribs. We also allow a little room in the cup of the bra for when your milk comes in. At 20 weeks if you purchased 3 maternity bras this should take you through to when your baby arrives and for the first 6 to 12 months. It is ideal to have 3 maternity bras, one on, one in the wash and one clean in the drawer ready to go. You will find that initailly you may have to wash your maternity bra daily as feeding baby can get a little messy when beginning. Its a great way to nuture your little one and although its hard work to get started it does make it easy and convenient in the long run.
We want you to be comfortable and enjoy your baby and not be worried about your bra, why don't you pop in to let us help you on your journey into motherhood.
If you are not able to come into our store we are happy to provide our assistance to your over the phone or email and you can still make purchases this way. Either way we look foward to helping you.
