Maternity lingerie can be a case of ‘needs must’. Not everyone relishes the idea of wearing it with many women reluctantly choosing the pregnancy bra out of necessity. So, it’s fair to say maternity bras have a poor reputation for being frumpy and ugly. But, regular lingerie doesn’t address the needs of the pregnant bust: it isn’t as forgiving, as comfortable and lacks the functionality if you’re wanting to nurse. A supportive bra that can take
I have to admit, back when I was watching the Poundshop Wars tv series it had me scoffing at the idea of a pound bra. I was already decided, there was no way such a cheap bra could be any good, not for a fuller bust anyway. Bras are complicated beasts for a reason: they have a big job to fulfil, and a good supportive fit doesn’t requires technical skill that doesn’t come cheap.
The first trimester of pregnancy is a thrilling time. You go from independent woman to mummy-to-be in the flash of a pee stick and your life is turned up on its heels in a whirlwind of baby-gros, your days spent dreaming about your future new family life amidst panic you’re sure to be a sh*t mum. First trimester is when everything kicks into gear and hormones go through the roof, it’s the superlooper, that bit of the ride
Wearing a bra to bed is something I never do. Once I’m in those PJs it’s a bra-free zone, and it’s generally a liberating feeling. But since becoming pregnant my boobs have taken on a mind of their own; whipping off the day’s bra is now the dreaded release into the wild and settling down to sleep means taming the unrestrained discomfort. As soon as you’ve conceived, your boobs assume their assignment and start prepping
Pregnancy makes boobs crazy, and it starts right from the first trimester. The past twelve weeks have taken a painful turn, leaving me vulnerable to sensitivities. While a few of my regular bras are still comfortably wearable, softer and more gently supportive, maternity specific bras have certainly brought a new kind of relief in this season of tenderness. Despite feeling fuller in the bra department, I’ve not massively grown, which is very much okay with me.
Bikini season made its grand arrival here in the UK last month when the unusually hot heatwave turned up on our doorsteps. And when the mercury climbs into the sweltering 30s you know it’s unarguable: it’s time to bust out the bikinis. *PR Gifted Amidst the current trends leaning heavily toward garish geometrics and busy botanical prints, it’s nice to find something a little sweeter. Florals are still big business, and one sure way to pretty
After a tense few months of anxiety and nausea, earlier this week I was finally able to share some exciting news – I’m pregnant! If you’ve been following the blog for a while you’ll know why I’d be nervous this time around, when a year ago I suffered a missed miscarriage. But things seem to be going really well, we’ve had a healthy scan and now as I come to the end of the first
At certain times of the month my boobs can feel something crazy. One minute they’re just big, cuddly mounds of squishiness, the next they’re moody boobs, rocks on fire, inflicting pain and misery into your sleepless life. It’s times like this that I can’t cope with my regular wired bras and sure as heck can’t do with sleeping bra-free. Soft and casual but keenly supportive sleep bras are a blessing when my boobs are playing temperamental. Some come
