Motherhood Maternity® and A Pea in the Pod® Bra Finder
HOW TO FIND YOUR BRA SIZE
You will need a soft tape measure. If you don’t have a soft tape measure, use a ribbon or piece of string and then hold it against a ruler or yard stick. Make sure to wear your best fitting unpadded bra when measuring yourself. You may also want to measure yourself in front of a mirror – this will help you see if the tape is positioned correctly on your body.
Below Bust Measurement: measure around your rib cage directly beneath your bust. Your tape measure should be evenly horizontal the whole way around and you should not pull the tape too tightly. (Enter this number below into the "Below Bust Measurement").
Bust Measurement: measure around the fullest part of your bust while wearing your unpadded bra. Again, make sure the tape is horizontal the whole way around your body and do not pull the tape too tightly. (Enter this number below into the "Bust Measurement").

Motherhood Maternity® and A Pea in the Pod® Sleep Bra Size Chart
Why do you need one?
The sleep bra is a must for nighttime support and nursing. Wearing this bra helps reduce back pain, sagging, and stretch marks on your chest because it holds you in place all night. This bra also has thicker straps that don't dig into your shoulders and soft, comfortable elastic under the bust.
When do you need one?
A sleep bra is essential throughout pregnancy and nursing, but is especially beneficial around month 6 and beyond, when the bust grows most. We've heard the sleep bra is also a great choice for low impact exercise.
How does it function when Nursing?
When you're nursing, comfort is key. The sleep bra's soft, stretchy cotton spandex fabric hugs your bust without constricting. And, with no underwire, there's no need to worry about clogged milk ducts. The sleep bra holds nursing pads in place throughout the night and its simple wrap design(pull over function) makes it ideal for nighttime or daytime use. This versatile bra also feels great under our nursing sleepwear.
How many should you buy and why?
A minimum of 3: one to wear, one to wash, and one to have ready.
Motherhood Maternity® and A Pea in the Pod® Panties
Why do I need to wear maternity panties?
Maternity panties are designed specifically for the pregnant body. They are cut to fit both the front and backside appropriately, regardless of the panty style you choose.
Stretchy fabrics and soft elastics allow for the greatest comfort as your belly grows.
Maternity panties also provide a perfect fit during those first few months after delivery, as your body returns to its pre-pregnancy shape.
Why not just buy a larger size?
Buying your normal panties in a size bigger may seem like a great idea, but the pregnant body doesn't agree. Elastics are still too tight across the tummy, and extra fabric along the backside causes bunching and a bumpy panty line.
What styles are available in maternity panties?
Maternity panties are available in your favorite styles, so you don't need to sacrifice fashion for comfort. These include: Bikini: The front of the panty sits comfortably below the belly Brief: The panty sits higher in the front for more belly coverage Boyshort: Sits under the belly in front. Has a lower cut leg than a traditional brief, with the leg opening sitting on the leg and not the bottom Hipster: Has a low rise waistband that sits on or just below the hips, both in front & the back
