Am I the only one who...

...still wears maternity bras?

 

I hope I’m not, I just find them so comfy. Hate underwire poking me. When I bought my first one when I was pregnant with DS, I was like “Where have you been all my life?”

 

I even bought two new sports ones from target and they’re perfect for sword fighting in as I have a breast plate that goes under my bra.

 

Anyone else?

My son is 4... hasn't BF in over a year.

 

Still wearing those maternity bras. They were expensive! And they're comfy. I'm not giving then up

I cannot find one that fits properly (small boobs are less well catered for) and I’m trying to wean my last child - I can’t wait to permanently get rid of these bras.

needs to get out

I wear bras with no underwire. I have a fancy event coming up for which I might require some better scaffolding, but I would rather be comfortable 90% of the time. My bras are size GG I think, from a speciality bra shop.

I’ve encouraged the other swordfighting ladies to check out the maternity bras and we agree it’s best one for fighting.

Nope don’t like them, much prefer an underwire for support.

I do like wireless bras for sleeping

I still do too and my youngest stopped b/feeding 4 months ago. Mine are predominately sports maternity bras though so fabulous for exercise and comfort.

 

I sadly have teeny, tiny shrivelled-fried-egg boobs now days so anything crop-top/sports bar is all I really need :(

My boobs went up a cup size for breastfeeding and stayed big after.

 

I had to get rid of a lot of blouses and jackets

 

Oh, and here’s me sword fighting if you want to see. I am the one in purple with a silver helmet who moves to the far right and has a two-handed sword.

 

 

Only girl fighting with the boys.

I did for ages as they were so much nicer. Finally found a sports one at kmart that are almost as comfy (though they do have underwire) and now that's all I wear. I did go for a while cutting the underwire out of the sports ones but they got too squishy.

You're one of the lucky ones. I'm about a H, have tried wireless but they don't seem to lift or separate them and it's like I'm just wearing a crop top. They just flop down onto my upper belly.

I wear a crop top. I don't give a sh*t if my boobs look saggy as long as they don't wobble so much that everyone stares.

Good you! I have a hard enough time walking without falling over my own feet and here you are sword fighting. In armour!

I wish I could still wear my maternity bras! Since I stopped being pregnant and breastfeeding my boobs have just shriveled away. The whole bit from nipple to bra strap is now totally empty in my maternity bra (or any other bra for that matter). It's very sad to have little ski jump boobs now. They were great when I was pregnant/breastfeeding.

I actually find underwire more comfortable now. It's sort of hitches them up, it's more comfortable than having them flop down on my chest.

I don’t like them. I’m a B (for barely there) cup and I prefer a good padded t-shirt bra. Underwire all the way for me.

I’m still breastfeeding and don’t wear breastfeeding bras! I only have cheap Kmart ones and my boobs just fall out all the time, so I changed back to wire a couple of months ago. I only put on the maternity bras when I have mastitis... but I do take my wire bra off as soon as I walk in the door!

I barely breast fed, but I have loved them ever since! I always thought I was the only one...I cannot wear ones with underwire now.

Nope, I was that weird person who kept wearing underwire bras while pregnant and breastfeeding.

 

The boobs flollop around all over the place if I don't, which would be fine if they weren't big enough for that to be quite uncomfortable. I love my underwires.

I love my underwire now. I go tshirt bras, sports bra and crop for my walking and I do have some nice ones for when I go out. .

I wore them until my boobs shrank and I had to get something suitable to wear in public when I went back to work.

 

But my maternity undies are still going strong, 6.5 years after I bought them.

I only wear wire free, but I've never bought a maternity bra.
