I have plenty for everyone lol! Razz

I got measured at 38 weeks, and then when Corey was about 2 weeks, and again at 8 weeks.
was a waste of time before for me though, as I was a 36J, and then when this didnt fit when my milk had come in, I was remeasured and was a 34L Shocked
I am still about a 34K now, depending on the day Razz

I was measured at 38 weeks with Connor - but they gave me the size up and that was ok (a bit of a squeeze when the milk came in)
I was a 32a before and went up to a 34DD when BF!!

It was painful!! I looked like Pamela Anderson as they stood up on their own - but I think the pressure was too much as they used to squirt milk across the room when full Laughing

And they don't look fab now - after inflating and deflating twice (picture a balloon a week or two after the party is over Shocked )

Lisa, mine did the same after Oli.

They stayed a B cup but turned into deflated tea bags Razz :iconsad:


I suspect they will go the same way after finishing again, though this time I am going to be hopefully doing it for much longer!

I measured myself (quite easy acutaly!) and I found out why my bras were so uncomfy, my back size was two size too small Embarassed

If your looking for bigger girls bras theres a website called bras4mums that do nursing bras, I went from a 34HH pre preg to 34 L breastfeeding. I emailed them with my pre preg size and they told me what i would need & were spot on !! They do the big baby shows so know there stuff !!
They also stock nursing bras for all bust sizes & have some really nice ones with matching undies etc... Angeline Jolie wore the 'hotmilk' range !!

ooh thanks for that Jane - ill have a look too!

I get mine from Blooming Marvelous, or Bravissimo. The best fit i have found is the Royce range (in fact, i think its the only one that does K/L) I have an Emma Jane in a K cup, but its not as good a fit as the Royce (its a fuller cup!) I did manage to get one off Ebay, but they are few and far between! I think I pay about 25, which i dont think is too bad.

That does look nice Kay!

After the 6 weeks I am going to go for the 'hot milk' bras.

I think they are fantastic, great support and give you a nice shape. I hated wearing nursing bras, felt very uncomfortable and mumsy Razz

Also if im going to have anew bigger pair I want to help them stand proud (while I have them) lol!
