Best plus size, large busted bra?

Ok ladies, I need to find some nursing bras before I have my May baby.. I am currently a (gulp) 48G, right now I'm bursting out of them, the bands are bugging me on the loosest setting (before pregnancy I wore them on the tightest ), and the girls are begging to want to "bubble" out the tops.. not a pretty sight at all

I can't stand undewire, if I buy a bra with it, I cut it out.. so it's useless anyway. My girls look south, so something with good support even when open, that will help point them forward would be nice, I have always had to hold them up while nursing my other kids, and would love to be able to free up that hand a bit. I would also like to be able to have something that holds them in place well enough for me to learn to nurse in a ring sling since this will be a warm weather baby, and we will be out and about much more than we have ever been with one of our babies.

So what is the best bra you have found?? Money isn't an issue here, I'm used to spending a fortune for bras, but any time I can save a penny I'm

Re: Best plus size, large busted bra?

we had a local diabetic supply shop that all of us chesty girls were referred to. I don't think that they had nursing bras, but they had some comfy bras that could be used while nursing. Maybe look in your yellowpages and see if you have a shop locally, otherwise I will google it and see if I can find something out for you.

I don't know if this would work out or not...it goes up to a 48G...but this is a discontinued item...so it is on a good sale.

I would be leery of buying online just because sizing is so difficult for us busty moms. The reviews states that cons were hard to use closures and tricky to fit. I would recommend going to Lane Bryant. They have terrific bras there built specifically for our sizes in sturdy, supportive, and pretty varieties. They also have a new nursing bra style and have started to carry maternity as well. HTH!

Hey, I feel your pain. Mine were a G while prego and now are about an H or I while nursin. The website that I always use is breakoutbras.com! I love the site because they carry big sizes, they have customer service to help you with sizing and best bras for your size. The site also has advice about each bra from the woman who runs the site. Which I find helpful since I'm buying something that I can't try on first. It is also FREE shipping all the time. They will also return any bra that doesn't fit and send you out a new one for free too. Here is a link to the godess softcup that they carry in big sizes. Let me know how you like the site.

Thanks... sadly, I have gotten accustomed to buying my bras online.. I live in a very small town area, and we have very few options.. esp for plus sized bras. The nearest Lane Bryant is 2 1/2 hours away from me each way For a very breif time, about 15 years ago, we had one.. it didn't even stay here a year

I will look on their website though
