    I got fitted for maternity bras at 16 weeks and they saw me through the rest of the pregnancy and when my milk came in

    I went to Myers today and got fitted. She said there is plenty of room in them for when the milk comes in.
    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Bubble mine are pretty sizeable too and all the maternity bras seem dismal to me. I can't wear anything like a singlet, not enough support. So I've just bought a great Berlei wirefree sports bra - it's nicely constructed and gives good support for the enlarged puppies

    Twocam I might take your advice and try the singlets. The mat bras I bought are ok but not as supportive as I'd like

    I found moulded crop top style sports bras much more flattering than the maternity bras.
    Comfy without the wire and maintain a two boob state instead of the weird mono boob i was getting from the maternity ones

    I had to get fitted at 11 weeks. My bras were so uncomfortable. One of my 10D bras even gave me a bruise on the side! I am in a maternity bra now - 14DD and only 13 weeks pregnant! I have a bit of room for growth, so hopefully when milk pours in, I don't have to change size but I will go out and buy the tank tops.

    At the start of pregnancy I bought 2 loveable bras bigger size than normal which were real comfy. I now am on to mat bras Triumph ones I got from big w or kmart, they were fairly cheap and are comfy.

    My doctor recommended I get into maternity bras at 4 weeks to make sure the underwires don't cause dramas.
    I got measured and they allowed a little extra space so hopefully I can get plenty of use of them.

    I got bras at 13 weeks this pregnancy because I got mastitis in my first pregnancy from underwire and it was the worst. I've have large bust as well (g cup) and I ordered mine online from hotmilk and would highly recommend them but they are not cheap.

    Is it advisable not to wear maternity bras with underwire even during pregnancy? More so the last stages of pregnancy?
