Sounds lovely, day after my daughters b'day hope the weather will be gorgeous usually is for her birthday...Take it the wedding is in Sweden??? Havent been but heard lovely things about it. Shame you would have thought Sweden would have been plugging one of their assets (Ulrika) the girl looked good after all this is 3rd marriage and 4th child by 4th dad, dont know how she manages to stay looking so bloody glam must be hard work lol lol. You should have a lovely bump by then will be nice to share your big day with little one will be really special.
Keep us posted - Flossie xx

hey gals, i am bridesmaid in july 1 week after my due date (aaarrrggghhh!!!) for my brother and ordered a dress from a local bridal room which has a supplier who does a selection of maternity dresses. It's quite gorgeous and they do a million colours and a couple of styles in the bridemaid bit a few in the bride bit. The company is on the web and it's 'forever yours'. You have to hunt on the page through all the styles but the one i've got coming looks amazing. What they do as well is add on one inch per month of you remaining pregnancy to boob and belly area so when it arrives it should just need slight adjustments. It wasn't too expensive either at 199. I don't know if you'll get them in sweden unfortunately though Sad xxxxxx

wow brides...bridemaids....it's all I can to do to funtion at the moment I wouldn't be able to handle the stress Shocked Anyways back to bras.......M&S do some really comfy maternity bras, I'm lucky in that my mother in law is a bra fitter there so I get a discount but whilst they may not be sexy they really are so much more comfortable than under wired bras and at a 38DD I'm not overly small either

I agree. I went to M&S yesterday and had a fitting session. The woman seemed to really know her stuff about what I should and shouldn't wear. I am also a difficult size at 32E, but we managed to find one to fit without wires, although not maternity. I would really recommend them.

I'm going to go to my local Bravissimo on Wednesday to get some more bras after work. They have one style that goes up to my cup size in a soft cup nursing bra but i'm not hopeful it will hold up the old 38 JJs (think i'll be a K by now aaarrrgghhh!). M&S only go up to a G cup so no good for gigantum boobies like mines! Think i've found a niche in the market..........Smile

i never knew that underwire bras would make your breasts more saggy. I was a 32 C and am now a 34E!!! the underwire bras are soo comfy though and i feel much more supported than in a soft cup.

is it really really important to definately not wear underwire bras?

Also i saw that Ulrika Johnsson article and thought she looked great!

cool, yes the hot milk are great, its about time someone made some nice bras for preg women.
i was really [*CENSORED*] off when i first went to m+s and discovered that you could only get black or white and that they looked like something my mum wears!
( my mums gorgeous but she is approaching 60 and im only 30)

make sure you get measured properly and my advice is to not buy online unless you have tried the bra that you want on as it seems is like clothes, every supplier is slightly different .
if you dont want saggy boobs you must wear the correct size and it must suit and fit you!
i have made some expensive mistakes!!
also yes it is really important not to wear underwired as it can effect your milk duct development.
if it fits properly a maternity bra feels really supportive.
the cherry bomb that i tried in a shop from hot milk was really great and supportive but i didnt like the colour and got a different one on line and was mistake! was not a good a fit for me but everyone is different..xx happy shopping, is a great excuse to buy new underwear!!!

Help! ive gone from a 32DD to 32E in just 6 weeks! I went shoping for new bra today and it was a total nightmare. Ive always had trouble buying bras because the bigger cup sizes are mainly available larger chest size and now 32E's are almost nonexistant so ive had to buy 34E

I went to mothercare and got measured. They were brilliant, really informative and I ended up with a fantastically comfortable bra. Not sure what size they go up to, but they have got quite a good range of maternity and nursing bras. I'm certainly going back to them in the next few weeks as I have grown, again!

By the way girls, yes it is important to not wear underwires as they can damage breast tissue, milk duct development etc because your size is changing so quickly and the wires dig in. (I used to be an M and S bra fitter, so know the talk they give you!) My local M and S was rubbish though, the woman had no idea what to put me in, no experience of pregnant ladies, whereas mothercare obviously deal with us all the time.

Hope that helps.
