While many of us are well aware that a whopping number of women are walking around with the wrong sized bra on, not everybody knows that many bra fitting services are also a little less than adequate. Having the wrong bra size is uncomfortable at the best of times. With threats of side boob looming and red dig marks aching, pregnancy is far from the best time to make this problem worse. Finding the right sized maternity bra for you is essential if you want to stay comfortable and look great. To make this process easier, try out a trustworthy bra size calculator and measuring guide to get the process right.
When you do know what bra size you are, you need to decide what lingerie you want to indulge in. If you are into sexy little numbers, pregnancy does not have to be the time you say goodbye to them. After all, women can be body beautiful during their gestational period too. On the other hand, if you rely on trusty t-shirt bras to get you through the day, pregnancy doesn’t have to be a time to stop. With an increasing number of high street and designer stores alike paying close attention to maternity lingerie lines, the world of bras is your oyster.
