Bra question

For the past few years I've been a 38F(DDD) and I purchased new ones while 7months preg. I waited till after my milk came in to buy my nursing bra and I had DH measure me, I came out to need about a 38I (According to bravado chart). I ordered the Bravado Bliss in 38 H/I and I am overflowing out of the cup. However, just to see, I tried on one of the 38Fs and they fit me better than the nursing bra (still have some spillage). I can't even figure this out, did we measure wrong or is the Bliss sizing a bit off? I've read a couple threads of mamas trying to sell the same size b/c of the same prob. I am guessing I will re-measure and re-order but just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, and some input of course.

Re: Bra question

My bravado cami was Way too tight. I gave it to my sister and found these way more comfortable, I am a size below you... I got them at Target for 27 dollars.

Re: Bra question

I had the same problem with the bravado bliss, but in a different size. I ended ordering a different bra from and was much happier.

Re: Bra question

I just recieved mine yesterday in the mail (bliss) and I LOVE IT! Course I am a b/c, so tiny, and its a little roomy, but it supports like a dream and I hardly notice it,

the site does say this about larger cup sizes
The cups are not full enough to squeeze J or K breasts in the H/I cups so I don't recommend trying because it can increase the risk of plugged ducts or mastitis. As long as you're in the size range it's designed for, this is an incredible bra!

so maybe that is where the trouble is, sorry you havent found the right one yet!
