If you are about an F cup, what nursing bras are you wearing? I have looked at several lines, but none seem to give me what I want. I'm an F cup and because I have lost so much volume and elasticity, I need something that's going to give me lift and support, especially on the sides!!! I know that's hard to find in a nursing bra since they are all soft cup, but there MUST be something out there. I also need an underwire. I have humored sales associates and tried non-wired but it does absolutely nothing for me.

I am currently wearing a "Bella Materna" bra but it's getting old and losing support and the cups are stretched out. The other lines I have looked at are Cake, Le Mystere, Anita Lingere, and Panache. Any other suggestions?? god I miss my little B cups!!!! :(

  • I have an elomi underwire and am n H cup.

  • I have two LaMystere and they are nice. I was a DD before getting pregnant and breast feeding. I wear an E in La Mystere but was up to a G for a strapless bra for a wedding when I was 11 weeks. It's the most structured nursing bra I could find. It's supportive, has held up great, and it's pretty :) I think they are worth the money.

  • I would start here.

    The standard bra fitting method is crap. Trust me, you will find a better fitting bra if you follow the instructions in the link I posted above.

    I am a 34F. I've tried different sizes and that is what I am

  • I went to Nordstrom and got fitted - 38H. They don't have a huge selection of nursing bras, but they can convert any of their bras (it's not cheap - $16 each). I chose three Elomi bras and had them converted. I've been very pleased with them. But definitely let them fit you. I would never have picked up an H cup on my own.

    Thanks, but I'm in Canada. I know my size as I've been fitted before.

    I love, love, love this bra:

    ETA: It's pretty thin so I use breast pads with it, they help line and give a bit more shape.

    They do! It seems out of order, but it will say for example 38F(DDD).

    I'm Canadian too. I wouldn't rely in a past fitting. Head into a bra shop that has a few options. I am a 32I while BFing. A good brand is Anita, they are very supportive with or without underwire. If you want a good fit you need to shell out some cash.

    My last fit was 2 weeks ago.
