One of the first things you may discover when you are pregnant is your change in breast size and they'll continue to grow throughout your pregnancy, sometimes going up a couple of cup sizes. As tempting as it is to wear your normal bras at this time, a wire-free maternity bra designed with wider straps will support delicate breasts throughout rapid growth.
We all know that day-long comfort can come down to wearing the right underwear, and this is especially true when you're pregnant. Our maternity lingerie has been designed with the collaboration of mums-to-be and with your changing body in mind.
At around 12 weeks into your pregnancy, you may start to notice that your breasts are fuller and a little tender. They'll grow and change shape throughout your pregnancy, and wearing the right size maternity bra is essential – remember that you may need to go through a few different sizes. Typical designs have no underwires and thicker-than-usual straps for extra support, but that doesn't mean they have to look boring. Our range includes lace designs, pretty colours and flattering shapes. Find out about choosing the right size maternity bra for you, or book your free in-store fitting with us.
Your hips also change shape during pregnancy, so even if your usual briefs fit under your bump, they may start to feel a wee bit tight. Maternity briefs come in two styles: under and over-bump. Under-bump briefs look like your normal knickers. However, they're gently shaped to fit under your tummy and have a more generous cut over the bum than most pants, with a wider gusset to take pregnancy pads. Over-bump pants stretch right up and over your tummy, and give your growing bump lots of comfy support.
No autumn or winter pregnancy underwear drawer would be complete without a few pairs of maternity tights. These look exactly the same as standard tights, but they won't wriggle down under your bump. Pregnancy tights have a wider waistband and an expanding front panel to accommodate your changing shape. Day-long comfort, here we come!
