Maternity bras are soft and comfortable, with design features that are important to the woman during pregnancy and afterwards. The cups will be stretchy and smooth to be safe for the tender breast tissue. It is generally considered unhealthy to wear underwires during pregnancy, as they could damage the soft tissue in the breasts. Therefore the majority of maternity bras you will find will be non-wired. It is wise to move on to a maternity bra when the breasts begin to feel tender and a normal bra becomes uncomfortable to wear. Of course, being measured is recommended as breasts do increase in size and fluctuate during your pregnancy, so it may be the case that a number of maternity bras need to be purchased throughout the process to properly accommodate for this growth. They can simply be purchased to gain the comfortable support that you need during pregnancy, however some maternity bras will come with the added addition of nursing clips at the side of the cups which detaches the cup from the strap to reveal the nipple for discreet and easy feeding. Of course this will not be necessary until the baby arrives, and so a simply supportive maternity bra is fine up until this point. Mio Destino understands the need to feel confident and beautiful during your pregnancy, and offers a selection of maternity bras to choose from, in beautiful shades and luxury fabrics, with lovely feminine detailing.
