A guest post by True&Co , your personal bra shop.
It’s inevitable; our bodies will change drastically during pregnancy and post-pregnancy. The body we’ve always known morphs into something we no longer recognize. Our breasts grow rapidly; our belly expands with this wonderful new life we are growing. And after the birth of our new favorite person on this planet, we continue to change. During breastfeeding we begin to lose the baby weight we acquired during pregnancy, but our breasts can either become larger or smaller and become strangers to us.
We are left learning to adapt to our rapidly changing bodies. Some of the changes are welcomed, but some come as a shock and can make us feel less confident than we were in our pre-pregnancy bodies (saggy breasts, anyone?). So the question is, with all of these changes, how do we avoid a confidence nose-dive with our post-pregnancy body?
One Brooklyn mommy Sarah* was faced this challenge head on after the birth of her first child. She explains: “14 months ago I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl. During my pregnancy, and then again afterwards, my body changed so much that it became barely recognizable. Within weeks of falling pregnant, none of my bras fit. Cue nine months of wearing poorly fitting bras, followed by the next 12 months of wearing even worse fitting nursing bras.” Faced with feeling unable to keep up with her constantly changing size, she finally found a solution when she stumbled across online lingerie retailer, True&Co.
She was overjoyed. “Every time I woke up and put on a nursing bra during those long 12 months, I promised myself that at the end of it I would splurge on beautiful bras… True&Co helped me out! I was able to shop online during the times my toddler was asleep… I now, finally, have bras that I love putting on every morning.”
True&Co has taken the “fit” out of “fitting room,” allowing for bra fitting and try-on in the privacy of your home, without ever having to step foot into a store. Think about it – as your body continues to change over time, your bra size can fluctuate as well. That’s why it’s important to get fitted regularly and clean our your older, ill-fitting bras and lingerie.
