Women love special lingerie at any time, but the right maternity lingerie can be a real boost to your spirits towards the end of pregnancy--or any time for that matter. Of course there are different criteria for choosing lingerie to see you through your pregnancy. You will need to find items that won't cut into you as you expand.

Remember that in addition to your expanding tummy, your breasts are likely to be a little, or a lot, fuller too. Sometimes the most difficult thing to buy for pregnancy is a bra because just how much size difference there is varies widely from woman to woman. You may find you need to buy new bras several times during the course of your pregnancy.

Maternity Lingerie that Gives

It's always a good idea to pick styles that will stretch a little, so that you can put off buying again for as long as possible. You can also find styles that will be suitable for breastfeeding afterwards, but don't buy these until the very end of your pregnancy or you may find they're too small. Maternity lingerie should always be designed to give expectant mothers more support.

Some of us don't like the extra support though, so expect to try on several different styles of maternity bras until you find what suits you best. We all have widely varying preferences for panties, and many women will continue to wear their favorites during pregnancy, whether it's a thong or something a lot more substantial. For some, however, needs change and so do panty styles. Fortunately, ranges of maternity lingerie include styles to suit any taste so you can look forward to being comfortable for the whole nine months.
