Angry The Bra Delima!!!

I would just like to say that i think it is CRAZY that most nursing bras only go to like a DD! I mean i have gone up 3 cup sizes since being pregnant, and i can't find a bra to fit me to save my life!! I just don't understand it!! For a while i thought that maybe i just had big boobs, but no i was looking on the FSOT adds and so many mommas are selling bras that are f and g cups, so then im not the only one? Then why are there not any reasonably priced, easy to got bras for us bigger busted mommas? I don't understand why if your bigger than a DD you must also be a 44 around!! Its driving me crazy!!

ITA!! I'm thin, but get large up top when nursing/pg - I've never found a bra in a store I could wear then - I always have to go online. (not that I mind online shopping, lol)

http://www.birthandbaby.com is a great site for nursing bras for odd sized mamas. I'm a 36 H and I never can find a bra in a store that fits!

Re: The Bra Delima!!!

Have you tried out www.motherwear.com? They're not exactly cheap, but their return policy is excellent and if you do a Goodgle search for "motherwear coupon codes" you can usually find codes for free shipping or discounts. They have a wide variety of sizes and I know moms who are hard to fit have had luck with them.
Another option is some stores that do custom fitting for women who've had masectomies, etc. also sell nursing bras and their custom fitters will help you. It's definitely not the cheapest route, but one of my large-breasted friends (but not large-framed overall) had luck with this and felt it was worth it to have just a couple bras that fit really well!
If you call your local La Leche League Leader, they often are aware of area stores that carry quality nursing bras and will help with fitting. Unfortunately, you're probably not likely to find nursing bras that will work for you at regular stores like Target, Kohl's etc., since they tend to have such a limited size range.
HTH,
Kristin

Yep, B&B - they're great! Some bras are very reasonably priced too!

I love this bra -- I had 2 of them with my first baby and I'm getting ready to buy more because they're getting old. I have it in a 34FF and it is great!

Nordstrom rocks! I got my favorite nursing bra of all time from them that was supportive and pretty (Le Mystere rocks my socks!). I'm a DD and support is essential to me.

I was going to do that, but I can't find a 32 E/F for any cheaper than the nursing bras!!

You're not alone, mama.
