With all of the body changes and niggles ahead on the pregnancy journey, the last thing you want to worry about is discomfort from your underwear.

Great maternity underwear, designed with pregnant women and new mums in mind can make life a little easier from the bump stage and well beyond. Just ask your new mum friends how many of them are still using their comfortable nursing bras years after the need for the them has passed!

While it is still possible to breastfeed using a regular bra, investing in a good quality, comfortable maternity bra will certainly make the job a whole lot easier. Bras and singlet tops with inbuilt bras that are designed for nursing mothers use clips, snaps and hooks which allow you to fold just a section of fabric down without compromising the structure and support of the bra itself.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite maternity underwear brands for you to know in the gallery below …
