Comfortable and pretty essentials
What is a Maternity Bra?
A maternity bra is specifically designed for comfort and support during pregnancy when a woman’s breasts can undergo rapid growth and increase several cup sizes. These growth fluctuations can result in tenderness and sensitivity which is why most pregnancy bras are wire-free and made of smooth, stretchy fabrications.

What are the Different Types of Maternity Bras?
Seamless Maternity Bras
Seamless bras have the winning combination of being comfortable whilst providing a smooth look under clothing. As they are a seamless knit they can stretch a few cup sizes which is crucial during those transitional pregnancy stages. Our best selling everyday seamless bra is the Leona bra in a double layered Nilit Softex supporting knit.
Maternity Sleep Bras
Specifically designed for support and comfort as you sleep, maternity sleep bras are usually a simple pull over style. Did you know that we won Bronze for Maternity Bra of the Year at the prestigious Mother & Baby Awards.
Maternity T-Shirt Bras
Many of our seamless bras make ideal t-shirt bras as they have that versatile seamless smooth finish. Also popular are those bras with a lightly padded front like our Dayanna Crop Bra.
Strapless Maternity Bras
For those off-the-shoulder fashion trends, a strapless maternity bandeau is needed. Try our best-selling La Leche League Strapless Nursing Bra or our super lightweight Talitha Bandeau.
Maternity Lace Bras
Functional, feminine and super pretty are our range of lace maternity bras which are a delight to wear. Try our Karla Bra with a delicate white lace trim.
Maternity Plunge Bra
What to wear with wrap dresses and tops with v necklines? A low cut bra. Our Dakota bra has a deep centre which suits a variety of necklines.
Maternity Sports Bra
Staying in shape whilst pregnant can be challenging. For the active mama, our Luka Nursing Sports Bra offers a super soft lightly padded front for maximum comfort.
Nursing Bras are designed for breastfeeding access without having to remove your bra. Most maternity bras incorporate this feature so the terms, maternity bra and nursing bra, are virtually interchangeable.
Bralettes are typically a wire-free lightweight bra designed for comfort and are generally prettier and more fashionable than an everyday bra (in fact, most of our maternity bras actually fall into this category!). We love the fashion colours and delicacy of our Grace and Maeve bralettes.
