Maternity bras are designed to be adjustable so that they can expand to accommodate increasing breast size during pregnancy.
Another form of maternity bra is the nursing bra or drop cup bra which is designed to make breastfeeding easier. Nursing bras are usually made with flaps of fabric over the cup which can be undone and pulled down to access the nipple.
The following are some of the leading maternity and nursing bra brands available - Anita Maternity, Cake Lingerie, Carriwell, Emma-Jane, Freya, Goddess, Heidi Klum, Hot Milk and Royce.
