After 6 years, I finally get to wear my own bras!
Yep, I’m officially 24 weeks pregnant. I’ve always believed that running this business without first hand experience of pregnancy has been a real advantage, because I’ve never relied on my own preferences; instead seeking out lots of opinions and different points of view to create a collection that appeals to a broad customer base.
But I finally get to try out all our styles and put them through their paces! And quelle surprise, my favourite so far is our Second Skin maternity bra. Having gone up 2 cup sizes already (dear God, at last!), I really needed something soft and breathable that would show off my new bosoms… Personally I love the foam pads, as I’ve always worn padded T-shirt bras, but a couple of my other pregnant friends prefer not to add extra bulk as they’re already quite busty ladies.
Unfortunately, the companion to big bosoms and constant nausea is a HUGE arse (mainlining Doritos to try and get rid of the lovely rancid butter/battery acid combo). Second Skin shorts are also my saviours, as they don’t dig in, they’re generously sized so I can still pretend I’m a size S, and they stretch and stretch. And stretch.
