Bra suggestions please

This is my third pregnancy and I normally go up one bra size while pregnant. This one however, I am already up from an A to a large C and am only 16 weeks, so still have lots of growing to do! What is a good bra that can grow with me?! I am too cheap to keep buying new sizes. I have a genie bra right now in a medium, but I am already squashed in it and the large is too loose around the chest. I fit (barely) into a 34C today.

Re: Bra suggestions please

For what it's worth, I've found that my size has changed at different times during my pregnancies, but I generally ended up the same size in the end. I didn't keep growing and growing, even if I started earlier, if you know what I mean.
Not saying that everyone's the same, but you might not keep increasing through the whole pregnancy. And, for the sake of your breast health, you should try to stay in a good fitting bra as best you can. I know the extra expense stinks though.
I can't get bras from a department store (32 H/I) so I buy them online at breakout bras. They have a couple nursing styles that are meant to stretch and adapt to changing breast sizes. Maybe one of those would work for you, now and after baby comes?

I love the bravada ones that are nursing bras. They are super accommodating I began wearing them around 18 weeks and wore for 18 months postpartum. I went from an Acup to a DD. these were great!
