I just wanted to say hello to you all and briefly explain why I’m running bras4mums.
I’ve got three boys and during my first pregnancy, I just went into my local high street stores, which I guess most of you would probably do, and bought my maternity and nursing bras from the shops. They weren’t very pretty and they weren’t attractive. They fitted and they did the job, but they weren’t great!
So during my second pregnancy, I wore the same bras again, but having worn them probably for two years last time, they weren’t really supportive anymore. I’d lost a lot of weight at that point, so my body shape had changed, and they really didn’t fit very well at all. However, I didn’t really think anything of it and just carried on with old unsupportive and unattractive nursing bras!
During that time, I was also looking for work. I wanted to leave my employed work and become self-employed. I was investigating various avenues and discovered there is a whole host of other maternity and nursing bra suppliers which you can’t probably find in the high street store, and these bras are pretty, really supportive and they are much better than the styles that you can get in the high street, particularly in the shops that I was going to, anyway!
So I set up my home fitting service around Cambridge in 2011 and I now visit mums, either pregnant or breastfeeding, and fit them in their new maternity or nursing bras.
Then about three years ago, I was given an opportunity to take over bras4mums, which meant I could increase the reach of the ladies that I support, because I’m so passionate about women wearing the right size bra for whatever stage of pregnancy or breastfeeding that they’re at, but also that they’re wearing something pretty and attractive and something they feel comfortable and confident in.
I just really want to get that message out to women, so come and pop over to the website and have a look, and if you need any help or advice, then I’m here.
I’ve been through it, I understand, and I’m here to help you, because I really believe that at a time when your body’s changing so quickly, you can still feel good about yourself about yourself. You can actually be confident and be comfortable and be supported in gorgeous bras!
