For many Mamas to-be, the first sign that they’re pregnant is their breasts. Sore, swollen and more sensitive than ever, they are often the first sign that something is happening to your body – even before the first ultrasound appointment! That was certainly the case for me, and I soon found myself shopping for a maternity bra. But where to start?
The main factor in a maternity bra is comfort and support, but this really depends on the size of your breasts. Smaller busted women just LOVE how full their breasts become during pregnancy, but for those with bigger busts already, they can become huge, sore and very uncomfortable. Support is KEY!
Whether you’re small, large or somewhere in between, a maternity bra that you can also wear for breastfeeding is a must-have.
The newest maternity bra is the Meryl® Skinlife Antibacterial Seamless Maternity & Nursing Bra from Mamaway. And it’s a great choice!
Comfort: Soft padded cups
The first thing you notice about this bra is just how soft it is. It feels amazing. In fact, it’s so soft and comfortable you could wear it to bed. Which, for those of you with larger breasts will understand, is not such a bad idea.
It has soft padded cups that are sewn into the bra, not only making it extra comfortable but you won’t lose them out of your bra every time you pop it in the washing machine. The straps are wide too, making it very comfortable to wear all the time, and easy to unclip.
Support and Flexibility
Mamaway’s Ultra Light Seamless Bra is the ultimate flexible bra, with its one-piece moulded design helping the bra to stretch and grow with you – perfect for pregnancy and for breastfeeding. The fabric is so great that it will stretch to 2-3 cup sizes, Breastfeeding means your breasts will increase and decrease during the day before and after feeds.
The easy nursing clips make it super simple to unclip the bra with one hand for feeding time. Especially handy if you’re out in public and don’t have the luxury of stripping off your whole top.
It also stretches up to three cup sizes to accommodate your changing breast shape and size, from all stages of pregnancy right through to breastfeeding.
Every Mama knows you sweat more when you’re pregnant, so the moisture-wicking fabric works well to keep you dry and comfortable. There’s nothing worse than a sweaty, smelly bra. The seamless design of the bra also means it gives you a nice shape underneath your clothing too. The Ultra Light Seamless Bra is a patented design, extremely lightweight and comfortable, yet still so supportive.
I love how the bra is more like a bandeau style than a regular fitting bra; no underwire and a little longer in length so it completely supports your whole bust as it grows, so it won’t ride up on top of your breast like some maternity bras can.
The Mamaway Ultra Light Seamless Maternity & Nursing Bra is such a fuss-free, stylish design it almost looks like a sports bra, so you could wear it underneath a tank or shirt without being worried about anyone seeing it. Which, let’s face it, is bound to happen now and then if you’re feeding in public!
The four sets of hook & eye gives you support around the back as well, and allows for maximum flexibility and adjustment as you grow. It really is so comfortable you almost forget you’re wearing it.
The size range is from Small to XXL and it comes in a range of colours including pink, dusty purple, black, light blue and nude. Check out the whole range at www.mamaway.com.au.
