Okay, this is a no brainer for people who hate underwires to begin with, but if you're not a member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee and you like a good underwire in your bra, then you may not be keen on skipping the scaffolding.
As far as I could find out, not wearing an underwire during pregnancy is a complete myth and you should wear whatever bra is comfortable.
It probably stemmed from the idea that you shouldn't wear an underwire when you're nursing because it may impede milk flow – this is also a myth although some sites say it's worth a shot if you keep getting mastitis.
I actually think some of these naysayers are confused about what an underwire does in a bra, I mean, it doesn't actually wrap around your boob like a garbage bag twist tie or anything – it just helps your bra keep its shape and therefore adds a little extra support.
I suppose if you're you're a size 38QQQ and you're sporting a 32AA with underwire, there could be problems, but that would be the result of an ill fitting bra, not the underwire. Get yourself to one of those bra places that has an old Greek woman that sizes you up like the oracle in the Matrix and get your guns slung up good and right. You don't need a damn lawsuit if you take someone's eye out, you have onesies to wash and fold!
Oh, and if you are one of those women that can go braless or simply wear one of those tank tops with the built in bra ledge, I don't want to hear from you. You make me jealous like women with sleek, Asian hair that can wear chunky earrings.
So the go for the underwire in your boulder holder if it pleases you. That, or just go braless in a mesh tank top. You know, depending on what look you're going for.
Lock and load!
