I eventually had to order from bravado. Kinda pricey but definately worth it.

They gave me absolutely no support and I was no better off even wearing one. Hit up La Senza or Victoria's Secret for a full coverage underwire and lift those things up. Nothing like smelling like an old sub by noon with flappy girls. You can score them on sale and just get one and wash it every time you do a load.

Re: nursing bra for large boobs??

First, make sure of your size. It's possible you think you're an F but you're a G or H (especially by the time you need a nursing bra, if you are pregnant now).

Nordstrom is a good place to go, the prices are as good there as any.

I find the Anita style that Nordstrom sells gives me a similar lift and shape as bras fashioned after the VS "Body" Bra.

I wouldn't get anything at Victoria's Secret, they don't adequately fit larger sizes. Better to go to Cacique, in a Lane Bryant store. Their plunge bra is a good one for nursing moms to have for special occasions, it's got good lift and it's easy to get out of, so to speak.

Birth and Baby is a great source.

Re: nursing bra for large boobs??

I'm a bit bigger than you (42J). I only found 3 nursing bras in my size (at least that were reasonably easy to get online). I have an Elilia 1613, a Fancee Free 94305, and a Goddess. I hate the clips on the Goddess-they unclasp themselves when I bend over! And as a veterinarian, I bend over A LOT! I have to tape them so that they don't unclasp, but that kind of defeats the purpose of a nursing bra. I like the other two well enough although I kind of wish I could combine the two and have a bra I *really* liked.

Anita and Elomi underwire bras are the best. Anita is more comfortable, but Elomi gives firmer lift and support.
