Maternity & Nursing: Burlington boutique helps pregnant women find bras

The journey to motherhood generally requires a new wardrobe. "Your body — who knows what it's gonna do?" says Andrea King, owner of Burlington lingerie boutique Aristelle. During pregnancy, "Some people gain 20 pounds; some people gain 80 pounds." That's why her store, which opened in February, carries more than 100 bra sizes. Professional lingerie specialists help customers find their comfort zone, and can recommend a timeline for maternity, nursing and post-nursing fittings. "I've been pregnant," says King. "I remember searching for nursing bras. I remember not knowing what you need." To further support her clientele, King has recently partnered with lactation expert Kathleen Bruce to offer breast-feeding consultations. They'll cohost a meet up for moms and their new babies on May 8, 9-10 a.m., and a gathering for expectant moms on May 22, 7 p.m.

Aristelle: Located at 61 Church Street in Burlington. Visit aristelle.com for more information.
