Need suggestions for nursing bras

I am currently a 36 DDD and last preg needed a G and H!!! Yikes! But I need a 36. Who makes a 36 G/H that is very supportive and easy to hook/unhook. Also would love some suggestions for a nursing tank that is supportive and doesn't smash the girls. I had a GlamourMom last go round, but it wasn't supportive. Do these things exist for me?

I found Bravado to be the best for bras and tanks. Good luck!

Glamourmom Full Bust tanks LOVE! No comparison to the regular Glamourmom tank for regular sized boobs. The built in bra in the Full Bust has hooks in the back and is as supportive as a wire free bra can be. It gives more lift-and-separate than the Bravado tanks.

Elomi Nursing Bras and Anita nursing bras are the most supportive underwire nursing bras for DD+. I buy mine on breakoutbras.com

I have the Elomi Smoothing Underwire Moulded Nursing Bra- they are more pricey, but the fit great. And offer the support I need. (i was 34f pre-baby, and I'm 34J now)

Re: Need suggestions for nursing bras

I will say being a 36F I feel you! I tried an Anita bra and the underwire came out after a few wears I also want to say avoid Breakout Bras at all cost! Check out the thread in Off Topic and you will see my thread with lots of others complaining of terrible customer service lately. They used to be good, but lately they are failing to inform people of stocking issues and other issues. I would try Figleaves myself, Amaon also has some Bravado bras and Elomi.

I didn't even know they had a full bust tank! I had all Medela bras last time and none of them fit well and were not supportive at all, IMO. Yeah, the separation would be nice, too, instead of looking like I have one ginormous boob! I will check them out. Thanks mama

I miss my 34 bras , and the boobs that used to fit in there. I am so desperate to find good supportive bras this time around. Thanks mama

So the Bravado and the Elomi seem to be the most popular ones. I will check them out. It's tough enough having a bigger bust AND finding a great-fitting regular bra. I have been putting off buying nursing bras because of that!! Thanks mama

I didn't really like Medela bras, but I did like my Medela tank. I mostly wore it at home, though.

I liked Anita, Le Mystere, and some regular bras I converted. I didn't like the clips on the Elomi, but once I replaced them, it was fine too.

I keep looking at the Le Mystere ones they look so cool. I have some Cake bras on order right now and I so hope they turn out to be the perfect bra for me.
