Pregnant after a Loss

Bigger Busted Gals -- need bra recommendations

Hi Ladies!

So before getting KU, I was a 36D.  About two weeks ago, I had to go up to a 38E and I'm even starting to bust out of that cup size a little bit.  I was told that I should invest in a sleeper bra to prevent sagging.  I'm a novice to all of this, so I was wondering if you could recommend your favorite sleeper bra, why you like it, where I can find it, and about how much it costs? 

Ugh, I can't imagine wearing a bra 24/7!  But if it has to happen, I guess it has to happen.  Thank you, ladies!

Re: Bigger Busted Gals -- need bra recommendations

  • I'm a 34DDD now and can tell these are starting to get a bit small.  I like to go to Dillard's and get fitted.  They measure you and find bras that work for you etc.  It's seriously the way to go. 

    I also wear a nursing sleep bra at night....I've done this since I had DS and nrused and now I'm just in the habit. 
    I LOVE the bravado bras for sleep.  It's non underwire and SUPER comfy.  Plus then it doubles for being able to use it to nurse later.  I have a medium ( I think) and I've worn it when I was a 36H (after delivery) adn when I was a 32DD and it still fits great no matter what. 

    I honestly think its better to wear a bra all the time.....but that's just me

  • For non-maternity bras, I definitely would go to the biggest Dillards in your area and get fitted, and my favorite brand in Freya. You can get them from Wacoal.com & Bare Necessities (also a website). Hope that helps!!! I'm a 36G (USA size, 36F in UK sizes, which Freya is) so I TOTALLY get you on the big boob issues Wink
    "For I know the plans I have for you,
  • Oh wah! You both recommended Dillards and there are NONE in my area! But I'll check out the online store for the brands you two recommended.

  • My current face daytime underwire bra is Chantelle. It's got a bit of lining which I like. 

     

     The bravado one I like I think is bliss

    Good luck!

  • I second BareNecessities, mainly because I'm a weird size that's hard to find in stores (32DDD).  I love the brand Panache, and you can get a good deal.  But I never sleep in bras!  Is sagging really something I should worry about when I'm sleeping??

  • I am a 38D pre-preg and only started to grow in the third tri.

    I also get fitted every single time I do to buy. If you try a nicer department store they will actually be able to tell you which brands fit better for your figure. Not all 38Ds are created equally, Dillards is a good one.

    For the sleeping bra, I can't sleep in a bra but I do sleep in the bra shell tank tops (Old Navy usually b/c they are cheap). They are nearly as supportive as a regular bra but help at night without being dreadfully uncomfortable!

  • With my last pregnancy, I was a 36-38DD to start, and by 26w was measuring a 40H US.. it was RIDICULOUS!  I ended up wearing nursing sports bras because it was the only thing I could find big enough in the cup size, but the band was huge!  Now, I started at a 38DDD.. slightly terrified to see how big these bad boys get!!!

    PP's thanks for the Dillards rec!

  • Fredericks of Hollywood goes up to a DDD/E.

    I personally order mine online from a store based out of london. Bravissimo. Im a 36H though Indifferent. They are AMAZING and they also selll sexy nighties, supportive sleepwear and swimsuits.

     

     

    **Edit** didn't read through responses before posting, the brands mentioned by other posters, (freya, panche are awesome they are some of the brands offered by the bravissimo store I mentioned.) Basically Bravissimo did all the research and offers the best most supposrtive brands for large ladies (D-KKcup) all in one place!
