Re: Mini-vent Why are big boobs so expensive????

I heart Anita bras. I'm a 32F/G while nursing. Actually a 30 band size but try finding THAT. The 32 is comfy enough and the Anita underwire bra is awesome. I have cleavage for the first time... ever. Usually bras make my breasts look funny. Also the Anita bras were $30 on Amazon a while ago.

Re: Mini-vent Why are big boobs so expensive????

thanks for all the suggestions mama! i can't multiquote for the life of me so...

i do like anita bras, bought one last preg for $60.def will check out amazon!!!

tried even the xl sized nsg tanks at walmart and target (thought i could take in the band a little and the sides but the girls were bursting out, lol!!!

will check the hotmilk site, but the style of the bras on zulily didn't seem very ah, expandable haha!

have never found a bra thru motherhood that fit yet, well thats not true back with my first dd when my bra size was a 34d (why don't my boobs shrink back with each child, they just grow with each one!!! LOL)

sarah beth- glad i've helped someone!

Re: Mini-vent Why are big boobs so expensive????

I am right there with ya mama. I am a 36H before my milk comes in and get up to a 38I when I am BFing. It is miserable trying to find anything that fits. Not even one of the sites that anyone has suggested have bras that will actually fit. The Bravado ones run at least 2 sizes too small and those fancy HotMilk bras dont even come in larger sizes.
There is a European company called Bravisimo that carries great sizes, but after the exchange rate they are too expensive to afford.
I will be watching this thread to see if anyone knows a good brand that runs true to size and comes in larger cups.

Lisa, its expensive but this bra would definately fit you. the uk sizes are different so a us H is a uk FF and an I is uk G, I've heard lots of great things about this bra. and i do love breakoutbras, they have fabulous customer service, sigh, i just wish they were cheaper! oh and i agree bravado bras run small, i can just barely fit into there largest sizes!

I find this to be true in ALL nursing bras. I have the OP's opposite problem, as my pre-preg size was 32A. Ha. But even I can't wear any underwire nursing bras (34C) because the wires cut in between my girls and in the armpit area. I can't even imagine what you ladies are going through. It is definitely not fair!
