If you are "larger" chested and hate most nursing bras...

Which did you finally find that worked for you?! I keep ordering and returning bras, and sold off the ones I did own... now I only have a nursing tank from Target and some stretched out sleep bras from Motherhood. This is very bad.. I'm a 34F and need some suggestions!!!! Let me know which bras you LOVE, and if they run true to size, or bigger/smaller. PLEASE HELP ME ... the "girls" are just hanging free most of the time and I really need some support... esp on days when I have to go in the office!

I am a 44 J and I wore the Fancee Free Extra Support Nursing Bra. Its not the sexiest bra out there but it is comfortable and it fit well. I still wear the ones have even thought I am no longer nursing. Good luck in your search.

44 DD the first time around, 46 DDD by the time James was done. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=5026122 and at only $12, you can afford to give them a try.

MY favorite:

It's pretty AND it holds the girls up where I like them to be.

Re: If you are "larger" chested and hate most nursing bras...

I am a 34F and mostly wear these:
http://www.motherwear.com/prod.cfm/cid/50/sid/6270

I also have a Medela Full Fit nursing bra:
http://www.medela.com/newfiles/seamb...t.html#fullfit

These both fit true to size. My complaint with the Motherwear bra is that after several hours of wearing, it doesn't provide as much support as when "fresh." These bras are soft cups so I do think they provide great support considering they are not underwire, and my problem could be attributed to the fact that my bras are old and the elastic is wearing. My complaint with the Medela bra is I hate, hate, hate the nursing opening (it's easy to undo, but impossible to hook back up one-handed) and that the cups are really far apart. It looks like my boobs are practically under my armpits. But, it's underwire and therefore I have great support all the time.

Re: If you are "larger" chested and hate most nursing bras...

This one is not sexy but I love it:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/re.../dp/B0000867DC

I also like this one and it's pretty:

http://www.biggerbras.com/freya-big-...ac=2&zmap=8094

but I'm actually getting ready to sell one of the Freya bras (the second link). I bought one in 34FF and one in 36F -- I think I'm going to list the 36F for sale here in a few days (as soon as I get around to taking a picture). I really wanted 2 of the 34FF but they only had 1 in stock at the shop I was at, and so I picked up a 36F and now I wish I hadn't spent the money.
