When you are pregnant you are best to measure underbust as this is the measurement that is least likely to change throughout the pregnancy. However please remember that these are maximum measurements. You may find that you put on a layer of fat on your back; this is storage for breast milk. Therefore if you are in early stages of pregnancy please allow for a slight increase in your measurements.

Maternity dress/breastfeeding top sizing guidelines

Choosing a size when purchasing a new maternity or Breastfeeding top can be difficult, but it is also very important not only for comfort but for function. You will need support but you may experience tenderness at the end of your pregnancy and on into nursing. You must also realize that your size is going to continue to change. That is why we have devised a way to measure for some growth.

• First, find your band size. Measure your under bust. Measure around the body, just under the arms, with a measuring tape. Remember to stand up straight and breathe normally. If the measurement is an odd number add one, 39 would be 40.
• Take into account your pregnancy. If you are already near the end of your pregnancy and are buying for a nursing top add one to two inches to accommodate your milk coming in. During nursing your breasts will change in size each day. You will want to be comfortable and will need the extra room for growth.
• Remember that breasts will swell and decrease in size on a daily basis when nursing. This is perfectly normal and good. Just make sure that you allow for room to grow during the different stages of nursing.
