Pregnancy fashion can be more confusing than it needs to be. After all, at this point, you’d think there’d be a paint-by-number approach—or at least a subscription service—for the range of maternity bras you’ll need before (and after) baby.

As a rule of thumb, you’ll most likely end up investing in three total bras (give or take) to get you through the trimester by trimester transition. That’s why we asked real moms to share the maternity bras that carried them through—and the qualities they loved the most about each one.
