Looking over the past few weeks, the Kardashian clan is forever growing with the second baby of Kimye (Kim and Kayne) due at the end of this year and Kim flaunting her growing baby bump in tightly fitted dresses, workout clothes and in Swimwear. At Get Bras we do get the FAQ of what is the best type of Lingerie and Shapewear is the best during pregnancy and afterwards so today we have put together our top picks to help guide you to your perfect choices for maternity wear.
To start off we are going to talk about what Bras will be the most suitable for you while you are pregnant then go to what is recommended after birth. No matter if you are pregnant or not, breast change but more frequently when you are creating life from the production of milk and a dramatic change in hormones. The most frequent question we get asked is; Are Underwired Bras unsafe to wear while pregnant? The answer is no. There is no evidence that Underwire Bras are not safe however with the constant change with your shape, bust and band size it may become uncomfortable. At Get Bras we cater both Underwired and Soft Cup Maternity/Nursing Bras including the and the Elomi Smoothing Underwire Molded Nursing Bra and the Freya Dotty Soft Cup Nursing Bra which are both great for the larger cup sizes and with a drop down cup so you can carry on using the Maternity/Nursing Bras if you choose breastfeed.
Another great option to choose if you are pregnant and want that extra support while you are sleeping is a Sports Bra. Sports Bras are known for keep your breast in place while exercising and everyday activities so they will be perfect while you are moving around when you’re asleep. The Shock Absorber 5044 reduces up to 78% bounce with high performance fabrics and with infinity 8 supports to help comfort the bust as it moves.
The idea of wearing shapewear during pregnancy seems completely foreign and a little scary but they have been positive results from shapewear to help support the back and posture while being pregnant and smooth out the baby bump underneath clothing. Kim Kardashian has spoken out openly about wearing Spanx through her first pregnancy with North when wearing thigh clothing stating;
‘‘For any concern that my clothes are too tight, I have so many pieces custom fit for my growing body! They make pregnancy Spanx. So this theory sounds ridiculous! I feel my best when I am in heels and chic clothes; Happy mommy, happy baby!”
At Get Bras we also stock the ever popular Spanx Power Mama to help support you and baby bump with a great smooth look and shape your curves. The Spanx Power Mama is made up of soft yarns that will stretch with your growing belly, provides a low back support and is made up of 85% Nylon, 15% LYCRA elastane and a Spandex Elastane on the waistline.
If you are looking for a quick fix for after you have had you little bundle of joy(s) the Esbelt Waist Cinch is great for its high compression fabrics with light, flexible boning ideal for waist training and with 100% cotton lining to keep you comfortable and supported. In a similar way to the back support, the stomach muscles are also supported which is particularly relevant after giving birth.
