Since the baby is due pretty soon (the doctor on Tuesday actually told me to hurry up) and my bra really doesn't fit very well anymore, I thought I'd have a little look-see around the Internet at maternity bras in my size. I was horribly disappointed.
Last time I was pregnant I gained about the same amount of weight and the same number of cup sizes as this time, just I started out at over 50kg rather than under this time. The net result of all this is I've ended up being slightly bigger than last time, and even more in uncharted bra size than last time. I still have my utilitarian beige Triumph bra in a 12F, altered down so its wearable by someone who is a size 10 (which incidentally puts it at a size 10G, a size that is practically impossible to find). Unfortunately, it is slightly too small.
So I spend the afternoon poking around on the Internet for bras. There's a lot out there, and some are very pretty. By far one of the nicest range of maternity bras out there is put out by Hot Milk Lingerie, but unfortunately their size range just doesn't extend to what I need.
There's dozens of sites reselling maternity bras of various styles, including Hot Milk. One of the better sites I found was Big Girls Don't Cry Anymore, and it actually stocks bras that go halfway up the alphabet. I'm impressed. Now, I just have to hope someone buys me a nice bra in 12G off that site for my birthday next week ...
