Q. Why buy a non wired bra?

Q. Where can I buy Royce bras?
A. Visit our stockists page to find Royce bras in your area. If you are unable to find a stockist nearby, you can buy online direct from us.
Q. I'm pregnant...when should I buy my first maternity bra?
A. As soon as your normal bras start to feel tight or uncomfortable! It's a good idea to get fitted for your first wirefree maternity bra about 6-8 weeks into your pregnancy, and again every 6-8 weeks following. It's a good idea to fit your first pregnancy bra on the tightest eye to allow for the growth of your breasts and your bump! To find your perfect bra for pregnancy, please take a look at our range of Comfort bras.
Q. How will my bra size/breasts change & when?
A. You may start to notice changes in your breasts almost straightaway (sore, tingling, tender breasts can be one of the earliest symptoms of pregnancy). Your changing body shape will mean your bra size can change a number of times during your pregnancy. Hormonal changes may also mean your breasts become more sensitive. Breasts may also feel 'lumpy' in pregnancy as the milk duct system develops.
Q. Why is a good support bra so important in pregnancy?
A. Because of the rapid changes happening to your body, it's really important to get a great fitting, supportive maternity bra for this time of your life. Ill-fitting bras and bras with wires can damage the delicate breast tissue. The breasts contain no muscles so it is very important to make sure you are well supported to help to maintain good shape after birth.
Q. When should I buy my first Bra for Nursing?
A. It may be best to leave buying your nursing bra until 2-4 weeks before you baby is due, to ensure an accurate fit. Don't forget to leave enough room for breastpads, and to allow for a small increase in breast size when your milk "comes in". Lengthening the strap slightly will also give a little more room in the cup for those very full moments before a feed. Of course you can always wear your breastfeeding bra as a support bra during the last few weeks of your pregnancy, bearing in mind that your ribcage will hrink after birth.

Q. Where can I find advice on breastfeeding?
A. Please see our links page for organisations that may be able to advise you on feeding your baby.
Q. I have had breast surgery - what type of bra do I need to buy?
A. After breast surgery, a non wired bra will be more comfortable than an underwired bra, which may irritate or dig into the delicate scar tissue.
If you have had a mastectomy, and wish to wear a prosthesis, our Caress range of pocketed bras will be ideal for your needs. Each of our mastectomy bras has bilateral pockets to hold your prosthesis, helping you to feel secure and comfortable.
Also available is our range of Comfort bras, perfect for ladies who don't need a pocketed bra. So whether you have had a breast augmentation, reduction or lumpectomy, you should be able to find the ideal post-surgery bra for your needs.
Most of our Comfort bras can have left, right or bilateral pockets sewn in at a cost of £5.00 per pocket.
It's especially important to make sure you are wearing the correct size bra after surgery, and many of our stockists specialise in fitting mastectomy bras and post-surgery bras.
