Ah, shopping for a maternity bra. Without a doubt, one of the least exciting or inspiring parts of any pregnancy. The worst part is that by the time you hit the third trimester, you’ll be back in the fitting room because you’ve already gone up a size. We may have found the answer.
This is the Cantaloop pregnancy bra. It’s a bra specifically designed to see you the whole way through your pregnancy. It comes in a wide range of colours, it’s seamless and it looks so comfortable. It has no tight straps or bits that cut in and most importantly, the cup size will expand as you do, so there’s no need to get a new one in three months’ time. The website has a sizing chart so you can make sure you get one that will fit properly. It’s not a bra for the truly well-endowed but for most women it should do quite nicely!
The downside is we don’t seem to be able to get it here in Australia, but if you have a friend in the US or the UK, they could send it along to you. It sells in the UK from around £18 and there are links to some online stores on the Cantaloop website.
