Bra Dilemma!

Lacey - posted on 05/31/2009 ( 7 moms have responded )




Before I got pregnant, I had a difficult time finding bras that fit well and comfortably. I was a 36 DD and though I'm only 17 weeks into my pregnancy, my breasts have already grown two cup sizes. I need some support but I really don't want to spend a ton of money on bras I'm going to out-grow soon again anyway. Anybody else able to share some viable ideas?

Lacey, I am right there with you. Once you get past a certain point shopping for a bra is like mission impossible. I hope I can help with this:

you can search by size (they go up..way up), price, style. it's the best thing to every happen to my breasts.

I have been fitted before. I am no longer at the point where I can go to target or victoria's secret to buy bras. Sports bras are fine for wearing around the house (and no, I can't buy the hanes two-packs), but I'm looking for something to wear when I go out or wear a top that isn't a t-shirt. Thanks for the feedback, but so far no one has really presented any *viable* advice.

I agree with everyone...sports or extremely supportive...
also, getting properly fitted is quite important too where ever you go (even places like Zellers...they are part of HBC, so do not be afraid to ask for this type of customer service).
Good luck with everything!

Target has cheap bras with really good support. Also, if there are any second hand maternity stores in the area, check those out too. Motherhood maternity has really supportive bras, but they are expensive.

i went up from a 32C to a 34DD and i agree with the ladies sports bras are the way to go.

I went with sports bra to.. went from a 36C to 38 DD and had a very hard time fitting those puppies into anything... I went to Zellers and bought a firm support sports bra and that did the trick until I had the baby. Then I invested in 2 good nursing bras (look for sales at maternity stores), They fit great and after 4 months of wearing and washing them they still looked as good as new.

I went up 2 sizes pretty quickly, but I went from a B to a D and never went down lol. I know for most of my pregnancy I preferred wearing sports bras. You still get support and you don't really have to worry about cup size if you just buy the cheap 2 pack by hanes her way. Later on in my pregnancy and just went and got some nursing bras to continue the rest of my pregnancy and into my nursing.
