Cake Sugar Candy: The Fuller Bust Comfort Bras

If you’re still hunting for the perfect comfort bra, today you can call off the search.  Whether you’re after a nursing bra, sleep bra or just a really comfy wire-free bra for everyday wear,  I swear I have finally found the holy grail of comfort bras that’s actually full bust friendly too.   When Cake Maternity first made known they were introducing the fuller bust Sugar Candy bra I couldn’t contain my excitement.  I’ve long been attracted

Freya Fancies Bralette: Full Bust and Fancy Free

Bralettes have surged in popularity in recent times and it’s interesting to wonder why.  With fashion magazines declaring that cleavage is dead, could it mean that no one cares for the push up and plunge effect anymore?  Perhaps it’s the eradication of confining under-wiring that’s becoming more acceptable, or maybe it’s just we want to feel comfortable and wear what the heck we like?   Whatever the reason for the current interest, there’s no denying bralettes are the most delicate and prettiest pieces

Royce Maternity: Floral ‘Florence’ Nursing Bra

Maternity lingerie can be too beige.  Don’t get me wrong, beige has its place, it’s fantastic when you want a neutral colour that won’t show through your clothes.  But sometimes neutral, basic colours don’t cut it, and maternity underwear can be guilty of being so niche, it appears brands are almost too afraid to make a fashion statement with it.  The way I see it?  I shouldn’t have to change my lingerie personality just because I’m

Maternity Wear: The Water Birth Wardrobe

Preparing the birth plan for my fast approaching due date, I’ve decided a water birth sounds ideal for me.  I don’t cope with pain particularly well and have a long suffering history of painful periods and chronic pain, so all the positive stories I keep reading about water births encourage me to give this method a go.   Even though an epidural previously sounded the most obvious choice, I began to realise it wasn’t going to address all the

Wonderfully Wire-Free: Royce Charlotte Comfort Bra

I’m continually amazed by how breast change in pregnancy falls in line with bump development.  It took me until the start of the 2nd trimester for my tummy to really start growing, by which time my bras also started to feel less comfortable.  While it didn’t really look like my boobs were any bigger, my abdomen was, which meant I was outgrowing my small banded bras as fast as my leggings.  Time for a new bra –

Cake Maternity ‘Apricot Sorbet’ Plus Size Bra

My maternity journey is proving to be the most transformative season of my life, right after puberty.  If not only for the scarily impending responsibility motherhood will soon heap onto my shoulders, but the constant daily change I’m seeing in my body as I head toward that goal.  Before pregnancy, I would never have understood the supernatural feeling of a growing tummy containing a strange, kicking being inside, and all the erratic hormones and aches and pains would have remained

Playful Promises Mariela : A Full Bust Lust

‘Good things come to those who wait’ said someone once, and they were right.  Anticipate the release of an exciting new collection and it’ll feel a lifetime of agony, but when it’s launched the reward is sweet.  Few full bust lingerie lines offer enough to be genuinely thrilling and Playful Promises is one of those special gems.   Playful Promises‘ fuller bust DD-G range keeps managing to arouse attention amongst lingeristas.  With exotic details and sumptuous fabric oozing

Hotmilk Lure Pink Flexiwire Nursing Bra

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
