  • Just wear a sportsbra, maternity bras are a pain in the ass.

  • Actually its better for you to start wearing them early. Under wire can actually affect the way that the ducts develop and can cause problems. I never wore a bra while I went to bed... pregnant or not :) if anything I would wear a maternity shirt. :)

  • It's never too early to have good support.

  • Do whatever makes you comfortable! Just keep in mind you may need a larger size down the road! ;) Congrats!

  • dont spend a lot of money on them because the size you are now will NOT be the size you are when your milk comes in.

    perhaps just wear a sports bra now and then when your milk comes in buy a good nursing bra... if you plan on nursing.

  • I agree with others... buy a bra with no underwire (like a sports bra or a sleeping bra) that will accomodate your growing body. I had to stop wearing underwire for the most part when I was in my 2nd trimester and beyond... I carried quite high and the underwire actually dug in to the top of my belly!

    And, just to add... don't buy a nursing bra until after you have your baby - you don't know what your boobs are gonna do once your milk comes in full!

  • i would get a sports bra.. they are cheaper then maternity bras, you dont want to waist your money on them because your boobs are just going to get bigger...

  • Try the $17 nursing tank tops sold at Target... Love 'em!
