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. 🙂
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.
