Nursing and Maternity Bra Blogger Roundup

This week's roundup is a collection of bra bloggers who've blogged about their experiences during pregnancy (posts include nursing/maternity bra and clothing reviews, tips on bra fitting while pregnant and nursing, discussion about body/breast changes, and more!). It can be tough finding good bra-related pregnancy resources if you don't know where to look, so hopefully this will be a helpful list for new moms needing bra-related advice. :)

Stack DD+
Sarah has quite a range of awesome posts on bra fitting for pregnant moms, nursing bra reviews, body changes, clothing reviews, and more! She's currently on a a blogging maternity leave (babies can keep one busy, I hear), but her pregnancy-related posts start around February 2012 - she's helpfully posted a roundup of most of her pregnancy-related posts all on one page.

  4. All of these blogs have inspired me to start a small "bra fund" for whenever DH and I start trying to have children. Otherwise I think I might have ended up with sticker shock purchasing so many new bras in such a short time! I never realized the extent of the changes that can occur through pregnancy or how they can happen at any time during it (and after during nursing). I am so glad that they share their experiences with the rest of us!
