The Mammae Soft is stretchy and grows with your breasts. Mammae Classic/Plus/Mystery are no grow-along bras and therefore cannot be worn during pregnancy.
The first week after delivery
Between the third and the fifth day after delivery you will experience engorgement. Your breasts are very swollen and feel sore. This also means that your breasts can increase by another cup size.

The Mammae Soft is ideal during the maternity week.
