Maternity Bras: 5 Tips for Choosing Your Best Option

Team EBY Randy

It’s not uncommon for pregnant women to stop wearing their bras as the pressure increases with the baby growing.

Pregnancy already comes with discomfort and your bra shouldn’t be a contributing factor. No matter how many types of bras you have in your closet, you can’t wear them if they lead to pain. Our brand has created the best maternity bras for every type of body.

Take a look at our guide to learn about the most influential factors when you make a purchase!


1. Stick With Soft Materials


You and your partner have special moments and your bras are always by your side.

Lace and sequin bras may have improved your sex life, but on your new path, comfort should take priority. Pregnancy is a challenging phase and you don’t want to make things more difficult with uncomfortable materials.

Sticking with soft materials will prevent you from feeling itchy or restricted. Your skin can breathe with cotton and synthetic materials so you don’t get overheated.

When you’re pregnant, it’s important to avoid latex and nickel materials. Cotton and bamboo are recommended for expecting mothers. EBY bras are made with nylon and spandex, both are breathable materials that prevent chafing!

Nylon and Spandex are ideal maternity materials. Instead of stressing about garments getting tighter, you can get through the day without being reminded of discomfort.


2. Try Them On


Finding where to buy maternity bras can be a challenge, but online options aren’t as difficult as you think.

You can learn how to find the best bra for comfort and support to trust your experience. Don’t be afraid to place an order and try different sizes to see what would be the most comfortable. If you focus too much on the numbers and sizes, you may get the wrong bra.

Trying on new bras can be intimidating, but it’s the best way to prevent wasting money. Be kind to yourself as you try on various sizes and styles, there is a bra for every woman. Keep in mind that a size that may fit you now may have to go up if you’re still at the start of your pregnancy.

While you’re trying them on, there are a few things to take note of. Your breasts should be fully enclosed and the cups should wrinkle or feel loose. You can also lie flat on your back, if the cups aren’t digging into your chest, it should be a good fit.


3. Invest in Bras with Quality Straps


Many women don’t know where to buy maternity bras because they are focused on the brand more than the quality.

There’s nothing more frustrating than straps falling off your shoulders, especially when you’ve got your hands full. When you invest in high-quality bras, like ours, you don’t have to constantly fight to keep them up. If the only way to keep your bra on is by over-tightening it, you should invest in something new.

A good bra is made with high-quality materials that stretch to your body and hug it. If it’s cutting off circulation or leaving indentations in the skin, another style might work better. As a pregnant woman, you want thick straps that are strong enough to hold your breasts comfortably in place.

If you plan to use our bras after delivery, some will be easier to move than others. Two independent straps will make nursing less work and you can avoid buying another set of bras. Make sure you buy a size that’s slightly larger if you want to use nursing pads on the inside.


4. Go Natural with Seamless Options


Our brand hopes to empower women and build their confidence at all stages of their lives.

Wire bras might have been your best friend growing up, but as a pregnant woman, your body needs flexibility. The Seamless Bra Bundle is the perfect maternity choice, it comes in black and nude. A seamless maternity bra gives your body a natural appearance and maintains your curves.

As your body adjusts and changes to the needs of your little ones, you don’t want to get in their way. A seamless bralette won’t feel tight or restrictive. You will appreciate the comfort as the high-quality materials stretch to fit your body.

Your body doesn’t have to look unproportionate, and some bras can impact your curves. Our brand designs products with the evolving woman in mind. You can also go more natural with our bras by getting thin materials.


5. Trust Your Instincts


Our company’s mission is to empower women and improve communities.

When you buy a maternity bra, you need to trust your instincts. If you don’t feel comfortable and confident, you’re likely in the wrong size or style. Our team has a sizing model to reference so you can get the most practical choice and work from there.

If you’re stuck between avoid latex and nickel, we can help you break down their differences. At the end of the day, you’ll be wearing a bra and the trends shouldn’t guide your decision. Look for bras made with quality so you feel like an improved woman with them on.

It may take a few times to wear a bra to ensure that it’s the right fit for your body. We offer an EBY Fit Guarantee, so if your bra doesn’t feel right, you can exchange it for a better size. The best bras should feel like you’re barely wearing anything.
