    I started at 9 weeks for comfort. Not sure what is recommended though.

    I'm 13 weeks and my current bras are getting too small - so off to shops this weekend for a couple of maternity bras.

    Ladies - get the Berlei bra. Amazzzing! Its on sale in myer at the mo, and is soooo comfy! It's not a nursing bra or maternity specific but the fabric is soo soft. I can't rave about it enough!

    They say from 12 weeks.
    I'm 10 weeks Saturday and bought two maternity bras from Kmart yesterday because I was spilling out of my normal ones. I think they're great! Super comfy, straps aren't too thick and they have a really long hook panel - there's like 5 or 6 rows of hooks.
    I'll probably look at some nicer brand ones as they keep growing but this was a good start

    You should get fitted for a new bra whenever you are feeling uncomfortable, you have the "four boob look" or the wires are sitting ON your breast tissue.

    It varies for everyone. Some women don't need to change their bras until 4-6months but with me, one month in and my breasts grew a whole cup size so I had to buy two more bras to keep me going for a few more months.

    Pretty much all my bras are stretchy lace, so I've been able to stay in them so far and I'm almost 28 weeks - producing colostrum too! I have very large breasts to begin with though (14H), so rather than growing as such, they've just filled out a bit more.

    I'll probably still hold off for another few weeks yet before getting some maternity bras. Being a larger cup size unfortunately means bras of any variety are so much more expensive and harder to find - I don't want to have to go back and buy more when I actually start nursing.

    It is very important though to make sure any bras are properly fitted, so even if you go have a fitting at one of the specialty stores, then buy bras cheaper elsewhere, at least you know you won't be doing any damage to your developing breast tissue.

    I LOVE breastfeeding singlets with the shelf bra. They're great for preg in summer and feeding any season, but especially night feeding in winter! But I'm a DD - it might be a bit trickier with larger sizes.
