    We've got an article here from Triumph

    http://www.bubhub.com.au/info/articl...ity_bras.shtml

    Is this the sort of info that you are after, or want more. Maybe an online expert for a while answering questions on maternity bras?

    That's a great article, thanks :-) The online expert would be fantastic in here, but I was thinking more about the general public pregnant ladies who wander into random bra shops and need help but can't get any because there's no trained staff in there- there's sometimes charts on the walls telling you how to select regular bras, but nothing about maternity. Maybe therein lies the answer?
    The problem is that not everyone does research in advance, they just expect to be able to wing it, but it is a specialised area.
    Sorry this sounds very confusing and vague- like I said, I'm not sure what to do about it, I've just noticed that there's a small problem area and I wasn't sure who to point it out to.

    I'll see if we can have a chat with Triumph and see what they say.

    But, in the meantime, I think it's a great idea. Why not start a thread about it in the Army and the more viewers who say that they'd welcome some sort of staff training, or even a wall chart about maternity bras in shops, the more likely we are to get a big company to take this on board.

    I agree itisa great idea. I strolled in to Kmart looking for temporary maternity bra's while my milk settles in the first few weeks. Though i was a D cup, D cup did not fit and went for a DD on the lady at the fitting rooms advice. I wasin total agony for a week and toldhubby he isjust going to have to fork out about a $100 for a propper bra...the boobs are wothit. After going for a propper fitting at a verrrrrrry exspensive store, I measured FF....no wonder! Even if I had to pay asmall fee for a fitting, it would be worth it, maybe the fee could go for breast cancer research or breastmilk bank facilities, something that needs awareness.

    Maybe a word in the ear of the midwifes/nursing staff that addressing the education of proper fitting maternity bras needs to be added in with all the other information? Because I have also noticed a HUGE lack of general knowledge on this. Or perhaps if all the expectant mothers wrote in to the management of shops (they have comment cards everywhere don't they? ) and ask that they at least have a paper with proper instruction available at womens fitting rooms?
    I usually grab a nursing bra in my size and try it on, then if it doesnt feel comfy, I keep going up til I find the the size that fits. and if that means I buy several different sizes while pregnant and nursing, then I do. (I don't consider that a waste of money since I never lose my nursing size completely )

    I've also been wondering about at the hospital: The nurses there are more than happy to show a parent how to diaper a newborn using disposables, but will they show mothers how to fold and fit cloth nappies? Something I have heard a lot of parents say is they would be happy to use cloth if someone would just show them HOW.
