Post When to buy a new bra?

I'm about 12 weeks now. Haven't really bough maternity clothes yet, just a few drawstring pants to help me a along. I have one bra that is still fine for me. My question is, when should I go get fitted for a new bra? Is it a continuous process that your bb keep growing the entire time? I didn't know if there was a couple of different times during your pregnancy that you should go get fitted again. I had heard that around 4 weeks was a pretty standard time. Does this seem right?

I don't think there's a standard time when you should up your bra size. I invested in a couple of sports bras to get me through most of the pregnancy, and then at around 30 weeks I bought two nursing bras that I've worn throughout the past 9 weeks, and plan on wearing for nursing. I found that my breasts got bigger early on, but they haven't changed much since.

Hope that helps.

I'm almost 8 months and my breasts really haven't grown much so I'm still wearing my regular bras. It was like this with my 1st pregnancy also. I'm also still wearing my regular underwear.

Same goes for me. I'm in my ninth month and, sadly, still fit into my A cup. Albeit, they're a bit tighter now.

I've always worn low-cut underwear and don't foresee ever having to replace them.
