Your boobs will start to feel full and tender during pregnancy and may find that they start to grow eight to 10 weeks into pregnancy. This is the ideal time to start purchasing maternity bras for additional comfort and support.
Most of our picks are available in a wide range of colors (including multiple shades of nude) and sizes, and you can find even more options to fit a variety of body types and styles in Other good bras. To help you find what works for you, we also offer advice on what makes a great bra, how to measure bra size, and how to care for your bra.
Many startups can offer only limited size ranges due to economies of scale, but ThirdLove bras have cup sizes from AA to H and a 32- to 44-inch band. This impressive range is comparable to those of larger, much-more-established brands, such as Cacique, Soma, and Wacoal. ThirdLove is also the only brand we tested that offers half-cup sizes. (Though, be warned: No matter how many incremental size options are available, you still may have to try on a few different sizes to get a perfect fit.)

Who this is for: The full-coverage Harper Wilde Base Bra has deep cups that are especially well suited to larger breasts. Our testers who wear sizes 42D and 34F gave it 5 and 4 (out of 5), respectively. This bra worked well for smaller sizes, too. Our 34A tester found it to be a good choice for days when she wanted more coverage than skimpier bras provide, and she also rated it a 5.
My favorite part about this bra is that the strap-adjustment sliders are in front, so you can easily move them up and down without having to reach behind your back (a seemingly no-brainer detail that most bras lack). It also has a small hook on the back to easily switch the straps into a racerback design, for extra support or to keep the straps from sliding down your shoulders. The Harper Wilde Base Bra has a supportive underwire and a sleek, stretchy, adjustable band. The lightly lined, molded cups are pillowy-soft, gently cradling breasts and creating a smooth silhouette beneath shirts or dresses.
We also appreciated the extra-stylish touches on this bra. The gore (the part on a bra that joins the two cups together) has a unique, criss-cross detail that adds some interest compared with similar, no-frills bras we tried. And though the Base is definitely a full-coverage bra (no chance of nip-slipping here), the deep neckline and wide-set straps work well under skimpier tops and allow for some airflow. The Base comes in an impressive range of sizes and seven color options (three are limited edition).
Why we love it: This bralette is our choice for working from home or running a few errands, providing even more support than our other bralette picks (and about as much as most underwire bras). The Embraceable bralette offers more coverage and a wider size range than most of our other picks, too; it is an easy everyday bra that may work better for people with fuller chests, since it sizes up to an H cup.
Some full-coverage bras we tried tended to have fussy details like lace or bows, but the Embraceable has a beautifully streamlined, simpler silhouette. The neckline plunges into a deep V, leading to a wide seam on the front that provides a bit of extra separation between the breasts. The cups are unlined, though fully opaque, and a thin layer of fabric sewn into the outer corners of the cups adds some side-boob shaping.
After finishing our research, we decided to consider bras from some of the oldest names in the business (including Bali, founded in 1927, and Wacoal, founded in 1949), as well as some that have been around for less than a decade (such as Cuup, Harper Wilde, Lively, Negative, ThirdLove, and True & Co). We decided it was imperative to test the mettle of these startups (which tend to be more heavily marketed) against several more-established
