good bra during pregnancy?

Being that this is our first pregnancy, I am going to have lots of newbie questions...

Can you recommend a good but inexpensive bra? I am getting uncomfortable.

Motherhood has a sports bra that is super great and comfy PLUS it doesn't give you a uniboob and it won't cost an arm and a leg. I'm picky when it comes to bras and this one really made y day! Ill see if I can post a link for you in a bit!

These are supposed to be the best Can't say I have used them though as I am not an American nor am I in America. But I ahve heard them mentioned lots.

I always wore the bravado ones. They were the only ones that gave me good support without back pain, particularly during nursing. If you are larger chested, they work wonders.

Re: good bra during pregnancy?

I have yet to find a decent 'maternity' bra. I am usually a 36DD and the Lululemon TA TA Tamer was always my go-to but I am not fitting them as we'll in the last week. My problems with Bravado was that they gave me no support and if your girls are together with no space between them, you end up smelling like an old sub by noon hour.
Nursing bras are for nursing so we don't need them any time soon but we also don't need a menagerie of bra sizes either. Motherhood and Thyme were of no use to me either so I feel your pain sister. I ended up just sticking with the Lululemon TA TA Tamer and going up a cup size because I need lift and separation.

I'm trying to make due with my old worn out nursing bras until I have to change. They should fit through pg because they are all stretched out. LOL
