can anyone recommend some shops for maternity underwear that does not cost the earth and is not butt ugly. Do not want plain black and white – where can I get some nice bras and knickers that look nice and do not cost a fortune. Need maternity, wirefree and in pretty large sizes due to the massive increase since i became pregnant.
any ideas most welcome, thank youJanuary 25, 2011 at 11:27 pm #108530

figleaves.com have sale on at the moment.Best range around. Love Hotmilk brand but a bit dear.
Onceborn.ie good for maternity stuff, but has some underwear. Rapid delivery.
Both have great returns policy etc
Babame (first exit for Newry, take Forkhill road at roundabout ie go left. It is on the left within a couple of hundred yards beside Little Rascals, opposite Golf Club) have a clothes section upstairs
Boobdesign.com also do nice maternity & nursing clothes if scouting the internet, but not much in the undie line yet.
Hope some help!!January 26, 2011 at 9:38 am #108550CaliGalMember
You are more adventurous than me. I just always buy granny underwear in Pennys and chuck them once baby is born.
BabaMe in Newry has a pretty decent selection at their shop in Newry and can be viewed online.January 27, 2011 at 3:00 pm #108719caoimhecMember

i did same as galigal for pants – bought in pennys/asda and chucked after baby 😆 😆
in fairness now i did go and get measured for bras – usually went to Debanhams in blanchFebruary 3, 2011 at 2:33 pm #109138
I’ve been looking for some maternity underwear myself, been looking in the shops but not great selection in bigger sizes so got in touch with Babame and they kindly offered to good to come to the Mumstown event today in the Marshes.
I got measured and nearly collapsed when I was told my size….knew they’d got bigger in past 3 months but going up 3 sizes is just ridiculous!!
Got some lovely Hot Milk bras from Babame to take home and give a try, hope they’re as comfy and supportive as everyone says they are. will let ye know how I get on…..February 3, 2011 at 2:50 pm #109140julymamMember
Sabbi…are you expecting?? 😀February 3, 2011 at 2:52 pm #109142Maria30Member
Congrats, delighted for you and of course your dh 😀February 3, 2011 at 2:54 pm #109144
Yep, we were ‘trying’ to keep it quiet but me looking pale, wearing flat shoes and sporting a little bump Tuesday at the Drogheda event gave it away….and when some mums asked me out straight if we are expecting, I caved and said yes.
Very excited but also, very nervous too. After our miscarriage last year, we are just taking each day as it comes. Have our scan next week and fingers, toes and everything else crossed, all will be ok.
Had been feeling quite tired and sick but that is thankfully easing off now as am heading into second trimester 😀February 3, 2011 at 2:57 pm #109145julymamMember
Oh thats brilliant news, delighted for you both 🙂
I didnt even notice at the bagel bar on Tues!!! You look great 😉
Take care, i will say a little prayer to the angels for you xxFebruary 3, 2011 at 2:59 pm #109146Maria30Member
Have everything crossed for you. Hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy.February 3, 2011 at 3:52 pm #109161CaliGalMember
