25 Best Maternity Bras


As you get older, you come to realize that bra shopping is no joke. Gone are the days when you could roll up into Walmart and buy a bra that you thought was cute and not give it a second thought. These days, support is crucial.

And when you get pregnant? Well, shopping for the best maternity bras gets even more complicated because, well, your boobs HURT.

Tips for Choosing the Best Maternity Bras

We recommend only buying one or two in the first trimester, as you’ll continue to grow as your pregnancy progresses. If you experience breast tenderness during the first trimester, we also recommend getting one sleep bra for your current size (more on sleep bras in a bit). 

No underwire is definitely the most common, especially because many mamas continue to wear maternity bras after baby is born, and nursing bras typically don’t have an underwire because they can lead to clogged milk ducts.

Best Bras for Pregnancy

Kindred Bravely Simply Sublime

It’s great for women of all sizes, but if you’re super busty, know that the support will be moderate. For more support, we recommend the Kindred Bravely Sublime bra.

Storq Everyday

Perfect for women with small to average-sized chests, mamas everywhere rave about this bra. I personally haven’t used it because I’m too busty, but it’s such a reader-recommended favorite that it was clear it needed to be at the top of the list.

Bandita Nursing Bra

This bra from Belly Bandit is super soft and breathable and gets excellent reviews for support. We love ALL Belly Bandit products, and this bra is no exception.

Bravado Seamless

Moms can’t get enough of the the soft comfort, the fact that it’s available in a variety of sizes, and that it gives moderate support. It doesn’t squeeze you too tightly, but it does hold you up.

Cake Maternity Cotton Candy

It’s incredibly comfy, as supportive as I could hope for as an E-cup (more supportive is available, but not without squeezing me uncomfortably), and versatile enough to work with different tops.
