How to know your pregnancy bra size?
A good maternity bra should not be too tight. However, it must provide sufficient support. Maternity lingerie must therefore leave enough room at the hooks in the back. Generally, your pregnancy bra should allow the thickness of a finger to pass through. Likewise, so as not to constantly change maternity lingerie, do not hesitate to choose a model that leaves you a little leeway in the cups. Finally, maternity underwear should be flexible enough not to shear your skin at the shoulders. However, your maternity bra should not be too loose either. It's all about balance!
How to measure the size of your maternity bra?
Throughout pregnancy, the breast changes. Depending on the woman, the breasts can grow from one to two cups, or even more. The back circumference, meanwhile, can also become a little wider. To feel perfectly comfortable, it is essential to change your maternity bra like your pants and to know how to correctly measure the size you need. To do this, take a tape measure and start around your chest at the strongest point, i.e. through the end of the nipple. Also take the circumference of your bust, just below the chest. The cup is calculated by taking the difference between the first and the second measurement. For example, if your chest measurement is 90 and your bust is 80, there is only 10 cm difference and your ideal bra will be an 80A. The B is equivalent to 15 cm, the C to 17.5, the D to 20 and the E to 22.5.
