Over 12 Weeks Pregnant

  • Over 12 Weeks Pregnant

  • Trimester two is when you'll start to feel like you again, with a little zing of energy that you were missing in the previous trimester. It's the stage when you'll begin to feel the most growth with belly and ribcage expansion, and while it's a beautiful thing, it can at times feel uncomfortable with skin feeling itchy, sensitive and irritated. Your breasts are still growing, however, you might begin to feel less tenderness than you were previously.

    As always, your comfort is the key, so when it comes to second trimester bras, whatever feels best for you is the way to go. Some prefer to stick to wire-free bras, while others want nothing more than to get back into pregnancy-safe flexi-wire bras.

    Trimester three marks another round of changes to your breasts as your body continues to get ready to nourish your bub. Your breasts are likely to become even fuller, heavier and feel denser as your milk begins to come in. Some common changes are that your nipples might change shape, colour or become a little larger and more pronounced. This trimester also marks the perfect time to be fitted for those nursing bras you'll be using postpartum. This is because around the 8-month mark your cup size is going to be very similar to what your size will be once your milk supply has regulated postpartum. Pretty neat! During this stage we recommend sticking to seamless and wire-free third trimester bras to ensure you stay comfortable, especially as your milk begins to come in.
