Where to buy nursing bras for huge boobs?

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

I am trying to best prepair myself for the birth of my 4th child. I am normally a 32G, but after I have my baby I will swell to super human size, with the ability for my breasts to stop traffic & block the sun.

In the past I have always been confined to trying to pop a boob out of a sports bra to try & feed my babies. I will probably be around a 34 G / H, I never know because I never drag these things in for a proper measure.

For those of you who are lugging around large breasts like me, did using a nursing bra make things more comfortable or easier? I can only seem to find them on-line. Let me also say I think it is total bull-shit that once you start going from say a 34D to 34G the prices soar for $30 to $75, what a freaking rip off!

Any advice out there?

34 G's here! Try www.figleaves.ca (or figleaves.com if you're in the states) www.bravissimo.com, www.brastop.com or www.breakoutbras.com

Just make sure you go and get properly fitted in a specialty shop and get the right conversion when going from US to UK.

It is so much cheaper to order bras online. I am in Canada and if I were to go to a local boutique, I would easily spend $80+ on one bra, where as I can order the same brand/style of bra online and get 3 bras for $80 including shipping.

Elizabeth do you feel like the nursing bras made nursing easier? I am finding that the weight of my breast normally pulls the nipple out of the babies mouth & I have to try to hold my breast in place so it doens't slip away. Do nursing bras help with this?

38 L here, so I sympathise. I googled for large nursing bras and ordered some from the internet. www.bravissimo.com or www.breakoutbras.com are both good.

Clearly most stores think that a breastfeeding mother must be huge around the midsection too. It was very difficult for me to find bras that fit well- I'm a 32E after the birth.

I notice that J.C. Penney carries nursing bras in up to an H cup, such as this one: http://www.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?GrpT...|xgn , If there is a Penney's close to you, that would be a good place to check. If they don't have any of the H cups in stock, you can order them through the catalog while you are there in the store to be delivered free to the store, and then go there and try the bra on before you accept it. If you don't like it you simply hand it back over and they cancel the sale. I believe Sear's and possibly WalMart do the same thing.

True, the larger cup sizes cost more but you might only need two, one to wear while you wash the other.

Not having nursed, I can't tell you that it is worth it, but it certainly seems as though having the drop panel would be much easier than trying to pull yourself out of a sports bra.

Other big stores do the same thing, allow you to order something, have it shipped to a nearby store for free, and then let you come try it on. Certainly, going to a real slightly upscale department store would be a good way to find out what size you will actually need. In our part of the world, Dillard's has very skilled ladies who figure out what will fit you, but you don't have to buy from them if they don't have something you like and can afford.
