Best maternity underwear
We’re feeling the blues in a very good way with this beautiful, rich marine-hued maternity bra.
Covered in lace, it will make you feel sexy as well as supported, and will make breastfeeding a breeze with quick-release cups.
The floral lace is pretty as a picture and the cotton is sustainably sourced too.
Add a little lace to your life – and your lingerie drawer – with these soft and pretty jersey nursing bras in powder pink and white.
The non-wired bras feature adjustable shoulder straps, removable inserts and a wrapper front for easier access when nursing later on.
Comfortable and pretty, yet also perfectly practical.
Okay, these guys aren’t going to light a fire in the bedroom but they WILL make you feel ultra-supported and are fantastic for wearing under dresses.
They’re seamless, soft and comfortable, and are designed to fit throughout pregnancy, but especially as you approach your due date.
They help provide support under the tummy, reducing pressure on the lower back, easing aches and pains.
Brighten up your maternity underwear collection with this super-pretty coral-coloured nursing bra.
It boasts a lovely mix of polka dots and lace, and offers a supremely feminine feel.
Of course, it also has drop-down clips ideal for nursing, as well as a supportive, wide-cut underband. We love.
You’ll always be grateful for a go-to pair of black maternity knickers for everyday use.
These high-waisted briefs grow with your tummy and are made of a soft, breathable cotton fabric.
They boast a flat waistband and no side seams for a really comfortable feel; and can be worn under anything from your maternity jeans to dresses.
Keep things simple and sporty-looking with a minimal-style bralette.
These racer back bralettes boast soft, stretchy fabric, comfortable and wide shoulder straps, and extra cup space.
Perfect for an activewear look and the seamless finish is great for popping under tees and shirts.
Shorts are super-comfy and can often have a slightly trendier look to them than support pants, if that’s what you’re after.
These stretchy briefs are reinforced at the front and lower back to support a growing tummy, and boast a high waist, lined gusset, low-cut legs and full coverage at the back.
What’s more, seams have been kept to a minimum for a comfortable feeling against your skin. Affordable and a good little investment.
While over-bump knickers can feel really supportive, you may not always feel you need to wear them.
These super-soft cotton and spandex-blend under-bump knickers are stretchy, really comfortable and a bestseller on Amazon. The cross design at the front means they sit perfectly around the bump line, and the high coverage at the back means they don’t slip down. And they come in a range of pretty colours. Perfect.
