Size guide

Below you will find a general guide to help you find your size and useful tips for a perfect fit.

The first thing to do is measure your body. You will need three basic measurements: the bust, the underbust and the hips.

  • Bust: Place the tape measure around the fullest part of your bust, keeping it straight at the back.
  • Underbust: Place the tape measure around your ribcage, just below your breasts.
  • Hips: Place the tape measure around the widest part of your hips, usually in the buttock area.


In addition to measurements, also consider the style of maternity shirt you want.

Some maternity shirts have cutouts and stretch panels at the hips to accommodate your growing bump, while others may have a looser style that allows you to wear them even after pregnancy.

Choose a style that you like and that offers you the comfort you want during pregnancy.


The bra that fits optimally must have a cup that adheres well to the breast and also laterally and the underbust must not tighten or 'mark'.

Pregnancy bras are normally worn starting from the 4th month and for this reason the lacing must take place in the narrowest position so that it can be loosened in the following months.

Nursing bras are purchased before giving birth. A larger circumference and cup size is advisable because the breasts will increase further.

Consider measurement variations: During pregnancy and breastfeeding, breast measurements may change. Make sure you choose a maternity or nursing bra that is adjustable to accommodate your breasts' changes throughout the day.

Choosing the most comfortable size: In addition to measurements, take comfort into consideration. A maternity or nursing bra should offer adequate support without being too tight

Adjustable options: Maternity and nursing bras often offer additional adjustments, such as adjustable hook-and-eye closures at the back or adjustable straps. These options allow you to adapt the bra to your needs based on body changes and personal preferences.


Choose the coverage and style you prefer. Some women prefer girdles that cover the entire abdomen, while others may prefer smaller girdles or briefs.

Pregnancy girdles are normally worn from the 6th month. Great care must be taken to ensure that the waistline and leg circumference do not tighten.

Postpartum wraps are needed immediately after giving birth (already in the hospital). You need to purchase the size you wore before pregnancy.


Choose maternity tights made from stretchy materials that fit comfortably around your growing bump. Check that they offer the right level of support for your bump and that they aren't too tight.

Check the instructions for the correct donning of tights with graduated compression, as they may require some attention to ensure the effectiveness of the compression.

Choosing the correct size of maternity underwear is essential to ensure comfort and support during pregnancy.

Remember that every woman is unique and measurements may vary.
