I switched to non-underwire bras around 12 weeks or so. I needed to go up from a 34 to a 36C, so I figured I’d go with an underwire free bra since I kept reading it was better for you in pregnancy. These have been awesome, and I’ve just recently had to go up to a 38C since my ribs have expanded again. I don’t notice it not having an underwire at all.

Even though I doubt that this is a valid study… I have found that getting further into my pregnancy, underwire is extremely uncomfortable. Around 30 weeks I stopped wearing underwire all together, I switched to wireless bras or sports bras. I also bought support tanks, like the stretchy ones from Motherhood that have removable cups. For this last 1-2 mos of pregnancy I nixed bras all together because they really irritated my already aching ribs. Tanks are much more comfortable.

And I am a 38E. So it’s not like it’s easy to get away with not wearing a bra, but when you’re 8-9 mos pregnant, you just care about being comfortable! I just make sure my nips don’t show 😉

I’m calling BS. I’ve been wearing underwire the whole time and I’m 34 weeks. I haven’t had any issues, My girls are too big not to wear underwire.

Seriously, I’m sick of all these alarmist rules. Pregnant women have enough legitimate things to worry about already without being paranoid about underwire.

I am the only person that seriously cracked up like LMAO from reading that!?  Best line ever:  A high pressure shower head can beat down on tender breasts and feel like bullets from a gun.

Haha I told DH about this and he thought I said “you can’t wear underwear or a bra” and he was like, obviously a guy came up with that one, hahaha.

But I wore an underwire all through out my last pregnancy and while breastfeeding. I’m 24 weeks now and underwire bra’s are just too uncomfortable so I guess this is a good excuse to go buy one.

I heard it is just during nursing that underwire is bad. If your underwire is fitting properly it shouldnt really be in the way or uncomfortable during pregnancy.

@miss-spunkin:  Where are you buying your bras? I’m a DDD now, but larger than you in the band size. It’s been so difficult to find bras. I also think I’m going to have to go up again as these bras are currently getting too small.

Well, I’m already up a cup size and I’m only 6 weeks pregnant!! The underwire today was digging in very bad…I will have to figure something out soon. I can’t believe how big they have already gotten.

We just went to a breastfeeding class today. She said underwire bras are totally fine during pregnancy, but should be avoided for the first 3 months postpartum if you are breastfeeding.

@pinky44:  I have that bra from VS and it is the most comfortable bra ever!  I also have their biofit wireless and I am loving it.  Now I just need to buy one in nude color, because mine are purple and black and  I never want to wear wired bras anymore.

oh, my post has nothing to do with pregnancy, I just wanted to say that wireless bras are amazingly comfortable and very supportive, at least for my 34Cs 🙂
