Bravado Bras!

I’ve been really lucky my whole pregnancy that apart from my bump, I haven’t put much weight on anywhere else, despite the ridiculous amount of cakes and chocolate I’ve been eating. I’ve been able to wear my normal bras and it’s only recently I’ve thought about maternity bras. I did buy some very early on, […]
