Hotmilk Nursing bras

Has anyone ordered one? How has the sizes ran? I measured myself (with DH help) and I should be a 32 band and then around the fullest im 38in. according to most pages you add a cup size to each inch correct? so I was guessing I would be a 32F well I punched in the measurements on the website and it said I needed a 36D.. I have a 36DD bravedo bra from my previous nursing (I gained ALOT of weight with ds) and it is much to big in the band size. Im so confused now.. also their sizing goes A,B,C,D,DD,E,F most other pages I looked at went A,B,C,D,E,F or A,B,C,D,DD,F Need some help!!!

I'm not a slender 32, but all my S/M/L-sized bras and nursing tanks are now too big in the band and small in the cup.
Years ago I worked at Victoria's Secret, and their band sizing was actual measurement+5 inches. So at 29"(then), I was 34".
However, if there's one thing I've learned, it's that there IS NO set sizing standard for bras
I'm also interested in Hot Milks, so I want to know their sizing too.

Although, if there's one thing I've generally learned, it's to usually size down in band and up in the cup. Not sure if that's a good idea with these though

Re: Hotmilk Nursing bras

Thanks.. My DH bought me a couple for my birthday so we shall see. They are a UK sized company (New Zealand I think) So I found a few UK sizing calculators and all of them came up as 32F (converted) so that is what we ordered. I will update once I receive them on the fit!

Re: Hotmilk Nursing bras

I got my bras in yesterday. They fit great in the cup but the elastic in the band is super tight so atm they are a bit snug with a 32band. I ordered some band extenders as that will be cheaper then getting exchanged but hoping they will stretch out a little then they will be perfect. (or maybe my zumba classes will help them fit better.hehe) I would of been fine ordering a 34 band as they have an obnoxious amount of adjustments on them.
