Our Expert Lingerie Buyer Shares Her Maternity and Nursing AdviceAdd to favorites29

May 17, 2015

Whether you’re expecting the pitter patter of tiny feet or you’ve just welcomed a new bundle of joy, finding a perfectly fitting maternity or nursing bra may not be at the top of your to-do list. However, ensuring you’re wearing the right sized bra is really important, especially whilst your body is changing and adapting.

So to help make things a little bit easier, we put some of the most frequently asked questions to our lingerie buyer, Agnes Dewhirst, who shares her expert advice. Here’s what Agnes had to say…

1. How can I tell I’m wearing the right size in a soft bra?
