What is the reason for no underwire in maternity and nursing bras? I just can't go without it. Im already an F and goodness knows what I'll be after birth. Bras with no wire just don't give be enough support. I ordered some from cake with flexi wire but after 3 returns I can't get the size right (I've measured and all that) I really need to try them on in a store. Still I don't think they are much more supportive than the regular maternity bras. Any help would be appreciated.

The reason for no underwire is because the underwire can poke into your breasts causing prblem with your mammary glads (someone corect me if im wrong)
I was a G cup before pregnancy and went upto an H cup during breastfeeding. I found the maternity bras (no underwire) to be supportive enough. I wasnt doing any form of running, if i was they wouldnt have cut it.

I was an F and went to a H and was horrified when I couldn't get maternity bras with underwire.
I went wireless and I will never go back! They are so comfy and support well even with size.
My advise is buy a decent one and wear it a few times... You'll be surprised

I went from an E to a HH and was also horrified at no underwires. I love my maternity bras! Comfiest bras I've ever owned. I've had no issues support wise either

I actually get the flexi wire maternity bras which you can use when pregnant/breastfeeding. I find the wireless ones give me 'mono boob' and that aint a good look! Oh yeah I am currently a GG.

Thanks everyone. Ive tried on a few non wire ones and the result is not good at all. Bras N Things have ones with removable wire but they are just like all the others when you take the wire out. Any advice on what brands you girls have found to be good?

I wore an underwire until I gave birth and started to bf.
I love hot milk I found they were supportive for me at 16 F/G/H
I also got a soft underwire bf bra which I loved - label says 'Anita'
I got all mine from online - figleaves uk

I can't comment on good maternity bras for bigger busted ladies as I'm only a c/d cup but I remember a thread a week or so ago about a good online store for bigger busted women (maternity). I've had a search but haven't found it yet, will keep looking at let you know if I find it. I do remember a lot saying berlei were very good, which you can get from myer and this online store.
Hope this helps.
