    Frustrated.

    Advertisements
    My bras do not fit. They are not holding anything up. They are too big.

    When my milk came in I went to motherhood and got some new bras because my old one was cutting in to my breasts. They measured me out as a 42F. This is now practically falling off 8 weeks postpartum. I went back to Motherhood today and they measured me as a 36H, but they don't carry that. I went to Fredericks and got measured again. 38DD.


    WTF???



    So frustrated. I still have no fitting bras. I don't know what to do.

    My boobs have never even approached that size so I have no advice. The ever changing sizes is why I live in tank tops still though.

    I suggest not focusing on the size, but focusing on the fit. Every company runs differently in regards to size, so really you just need to try it on. What helps is to have a bra fitting specialist to look and see if the bra fits you right.

    I hope you find something that fits! I always suggest places like Nordstrom, Dillards, and Macys for bras, they usually have good bra fitting specialists.

    The problem is those places do not have nursing bras. So I am basically stuck. I can't order a bra online and just hop it fits. They are too expensive for that. And Motherhood doesn't carry anything that will fit me.

    This shouldn't even bother me this much. Life is sucking lately. Everything is upsetting me.

    Honestly, my favorite nursing bras are $12 at Wal-Mart. I loathe Wal-Mart, but DB went there in the middle of the night to pick up something for the baby (I don't even remember what)... and he grabbed a couple bras for me. I LOVE them. They basically provide the same support that sports bras do, minus the uni-boob.

    Walmart.com: Bestform Maternity Sport Nursing Bra: Maternity

    ^Those. I live in them... they're the ONLY non-underwire bra I've EVER been able to wear

    I'm a 40DD.... and just about ready to move up another size... and they provide the perfect amount of support. Under a shirt, they look like a regular bra.

    Just an idea. I hope you find something that works

    I forgot about the nursing bra part! I'm sorry It sounds like LittleMsSunshine has a good idea though! and at $12 it won't be a huge commitment if it doesn't fit exactly right. I really hope you can find something that fits
