Re: What is your cup size?

Wow, I'm glad it's not just me!! I was a full C before I ever got pg. I was 19 when I got pg with dd#1, weighed 120. I gained 60lbs with her and went up to an uncomfortably snug D, probably should have gone to a DD, and I did while nursing. At first I couldn't even wear a bra they were so HUGELY engorged!! That is what happened with the other two. Then I settle down to a full C or small D, which is where I am at now with nursing ds for almost 4 months. Then when I am done, they shrink to a pancake-like small C! Lefty is always almost a half cup bigger than righty, whether I am nursing or not. I looked in the mirror when I was getting in the shower this AM and just sighed. They are already drooping and flattening out!! No bra is made to hold up jelly pancake boobs, so there is always a gap at the top of the cup. It really stinks!

Dh has no problem with getting them perked back up after this lo is done BFing. Our bank account says different! It would be nice to have them pointing straight ahead again, instead of down at the floor!

I'm a C right now (we're only nursing a few times a day now) but back in the beginning I was DD. I hate bra shopping. It's so hard to find anything that fits right (and it doesn't help that I'm really lopsided, either).

Re: What is your cup size?

Well I just had my DS last Wed and at the moment I'm pretty sure I'm a 34D b/c my 34C nursing bras are really really tight. At the moment I'm wearing those cami's w/ the built in bra b/c they're the only thing that's comfortable at the moment.

Dd2 is now about 14 1/2 mo and I am b/w a B & C. Haven't measured in a long time & I've lost a lot of weight, so my size changes frequently.

I totally agree! I'm a 40F...yowza! I LOVE my Anita bras

Re: What is your cup size?

I'm not nursing anymore, but when I was, I was a 36 G, and now I am down to a 36 F cup (though I can get away with buying a 38 DD from Victoria's Secret, and having it taken in so it is more of a 36 than the 38). OH, Victoria's Secret even has nursing bra's now, but only on their website.

Re: What is your cup size?

I almost chose "A".. and I would have been the only one..
I've been a full B for the last two years or so because I was pregnant and then nursing my DD. She just weaned last month (not by choice ) and now I'm feeling quite flat. I'd say that I'm a 36 almost B now. Must be time to get pregnant again!!

Let's trade shopping areas! I was a 30DD after Nick was born and now I'm back down to my usual A/B cup. I can not find nursing bras small enough. Everything here is huge. I like to wear them as hats!

Haha I am the only A cup. Oh well, the big chest looked funny on me. I only weigh about 100lbs so it didn't quite suit me. They looked fake and they hurt my back.
