When you’re pregnant and breastfeeding, a comfortable, well-fitted bra is one of the most important things you can own, which is why we’re focusing on maternity and nursing bras in our latest photo shoot.
But it’s not just about comfort. We hear so many women complain about the plain, boring and unattractive bras they feel forced to wear during this period, and we’re here to tell you – it doesn’t have to be this way!
You can have comfort and looks all in the same package. You can have underwear that makes you feel sexy when you’re expecting or nursing, and you can have bras that are super comfortable and supportive when you need them most.
In our shoot we’ve focused on four lovely casual and comfy style and four sexy little numbers, so you can choose your lingerie to suit your mood. Check out our Shop the Shoot feature for stockist information and our model Emma’s reviews of the bras from the shoot.
For advice on what sort of bra to wear at what stage of your pregnancy, check out our handy fitting guide.
Thanks as always to photographer James Lightbown and our gorgeous model Emma Rice for such a fabulous shoot. Full credits below the images.
