    I went to myer twice during pregnancy to get fitted as my cup size went up again between 20 weeks and 36 weeks, so don't buy too many bras early on in case this happens to you! At the second fitting I got the ugliest bra (triumph) but it fits well and it gives me way more support so no uniboob/sagging etc! Myer also have the Chloe & Lola brand in maternity which are really nice non-ugly bras, I'm going to go back and try them when my feeding settles so I have some nice bras too (hope they fit!).

    Oh also I've gone from a c to a dd between getting pregnant and birth. HTH!

    I increased from a G cup to GG. Hot Milk were the best bras for me.

    It's a myth that you can't wear a support underwire. Many maternity brand now make bras with a flexi wire which is very comfortable.

    I was a DD or an E for all my pregnancies. I wore an Italian brand called Anita. They weren't cheap but I wore them for 3 pregnancies and for a full year breastfeeding each baby so it was money very well spent for me.

    I purchased mine from Bras and things and they have removable underwires.

    Ok, will try those brands.

    How many sizes do women go up from their original size (roughly)? I'm hoping 2 max...
    I went from a 'c' cup to an 'e' cup!

    I've worn underwire bras during pregnancy and successfully breastfed 3 times. I've never gone up more than a cup size, actually pretty much stayed the same C size all the time. I think I switched to maternity bras late in the third trimester.

    I'm usually a 10E and I got my maternity bras online at boobytrap warehouse. I think they were berlei. Don't bother with DJs or Myer, they're hopeless. Just get a bra fitting there to get your size sorted. Also, don't do what I did, and get the bras delivered at work

    Hi!
    I bought my maternity bras from Mamaway and they are really pretty and very comfortable....so much so I might just carry on wearing them after!I'm not sure how many shops they have in the country, I went to one in Sydney, but the assistant there was really helpful and spent time with me finding the right fit etc, definitely worth a look!

    Gah, this is the horror I am currently facing as well. I have been looking on ebay and found a few HotMilk bras which look nice. What is cheap for a maternity bra? As I am finding most to be about $50 delivered, which to me seems reasonable.

    I really wish I hadn't read how many cup sizes you ladies have gone up. I am a 16G/H generally depending on brand. So the idea of ending up in a I or J isn't much fun.

    It is a relief to know that I can stick with my underwires for now at least
