Pregnancy essentials (Part 3)

In this installment of maternity fashions we’re veering from outerwear to underwear. Woah!

Nothing polishes a look off like a great coat! A coat makes a statement about who you are and where you are going. Buy something that reflects your personality and you will “glow” even more.

The same could be said about lingerie. Buy the wrong bra and everything else seems off! Pregnancy is NOT the time to skip on a properly fitting bra. Do yourself a favor: plunk the cash down on some good-quality maternity/nursing bras that won’t fall apart after wearing it 2 or 3 times! This is especially important if you are thinking about nursing because good support and durability is a requirement!

Maternity Skivvies: please note I didn’t post pictures of the following products because of modesty reasons.

maternity/sleep bras
When I was pg, I had the original bravado bra, $35 (up to 46G) However, I found it’s great as a maternity/sleep nursing bra. I think this version works great for women with a C cup and under as a all-purpose bra. Now, Bravado now has the The Supreme Nursing Bra, $50

Another great website for maternity bras is Motherwear. They carry a small selection of maternity bras. They also have maternity panties for $5 ea.

Speaking of maternity panties: When I pg many, many, moons ago THE maternity panties to get were the Japanese Weekend OK Maternity panties, $36 2/pk. They are the best…held up like a dream. I bought two packs and they held up to the constant washings. Unfortunately, they only go up to XL.

Target also offers a nice range of maternity underwear such as thongs, bikinis, and of course, the brief (which goes up to 2X)
