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

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

So… I’m Pregnant! (Now what?!)

They say you shouldn’t tell anyone for 3 months, so there goes that plan out of the window.  I was barely past 6 weeks when my doctor performed the test confirming my status quo: I’m pregnant!  I only came off the Pill back in March, deciding it wasn’t doing me all that much good, and realising it actually wouldn’t be such a bad thing to have a baby.  I just didn’t expect it would happen so quickly but sometimes
