Thread: Maternity Bras

    Hi Delicate_Dove...I'm normally a 12E and have gone up to a 14F (so far!). There aren't any bras in these sizes at Target or Kmart. I'd suggest going to Myers and having one professionally fitted (you don't have to buy it) and then possibly looking online or waiting til Myer have a sale to get the size you need. When I got fitted recently, the lady checked to see if there would be enough room for when my milk comes in (by getting me to put my hand inside the cup) so I know I still have some room to move in the ones I've bought.

    Triumph make good supportive maternity bras, but unfortunately like most of the girls have mentioned here, they are expensive. I spent $60-$70 on my bras.

    Thanks , I have been looking on online and there are a few on ebay which are around $30
    I have looked in target etc, and they never seem to have F's and I am way too embarrassed to ask.

    Am I right in thinking if I went up to a 14 bra I would only need an E? the cup sizes change don't they ?

    I find I have about 4 hooks left with a 12 so, I am not sure about going up though.

    Hubby whines he can't lift them, what the heck does he think I have to do all day? lol

    I hated when they were DD's now I really hate them cause not only are the an E ok, an F
    they are a full rounded in your face F.

    sigh.... oh how wonderful they are going to look when then deflate and sag..LOL

    Oh you pooor thing... If you wanna send some over my way I would take your left overs LOL...

    I always thought I might actually have cleavage when I got pregnant.... but no that was not to bee.... I was still wearing my paddes pushup bras in hospital hehehe... so if you want I willk pay the freight on your extra cup sizes!!!!!

    But on a serious note... please dont be embarrased to ask for the correct size bra,m do you have a specialist bra shop that can do fittings... they will be used to a wide range of shapes & sizes!!!!... a few of my friends are large chested & have back probs, I
    would hate to see you have unnecessary back probs cause of embarrasment!!!!...

    Good lick...

    I already have neck and back probs actually.. yeah for me..

    but I think I will buy offline, seems cheaper especially If I have to buy bra's again in a few months...

    I can think of better things id like to spend $60 on. (even though I know its required and important to be comfortable)

    I think I just dislike them today and they don't deserve $60 bra's for their behavior..LOL

    Delicate-Dove: You're right about cup sizes decreasing with increasing girth size. A 14A is equivalent to a 12B; so I'm assuming a 14E would be equivalent to a 12F.

    Hi,

    I am normally a 10D but am in a 14D at the moment. Although I have only put on a couple of kilos since getting pregnant (i'm 21 weeks), my boobs have exploded! I was fitted at David Jones and ended up going with an Elle McPherson "Maternelle" bra (cost $54.95). I have to say it is awesome! The lady suggested that I go up in number size (ie. 10 to a 14) rather than in cup size as it gives a bit more room for later and although they were slightly baggy in the nipple area initially they are filling out already so I think that it was a good way to go.

    Good luck on your quest, it is an expensive exercise but it's important to look after our assets!

    Hi DD,

    I hear ya babe! Mine need their own post code, but I definitely agree with Shontelle... get fitted properly, if the fitter knows what they're doing you'll have room to grow and expand when your milk comes in. I was a 14DD pre preg and now a 16F at 20 weeks and like Shontelle, the scales have only added a couple of kilos. I'm in Triumph maternity and they are cumfy. With boobies this big its worth getting properly fitted for your backs sake. Hope thi helps hun, good luck.

    hmmm, this is one of the things i've been thinking about during the TTC journey - how big can i possibly end up? i'm an 18DD normally - not looking forward to expanding any more than that!!! DH loves the idea, but i so don't want to have to go and pay a fortune in new bras!

    I went from a 16DD to a 20GG... I kid you not.

    I found going up a back size was good.

    OMG - i so don't want anything like that to happen - but i guess if genetics is anything to go on, i've got now hope - my mum said she was glad she only had two, cos each pg, she got bigger and didn't shrink back!! i'm a DD to start - don't really want to end up permanently bigger than that

    There's nothing you can do to stop them growing! *lol* They have minds of their own! Just wanted to let you know Delicate Dove that Myer are having 20% off Triumph bras...I know you wanted to look online, but the sale might help in reducing the price!

    I would have loved to get a Maternelle bra, but the biggest cup size they have is E! Grrrr!

    Has anyone found a largish (size F and upwards) maternity bra that is not covered in lace???

    i was intrigued by the idea of finding nice maternity bra's in bigger sizes afer reading this thread, so had a quick net surf. there's a site called blestbras - has a section on maternity bras - there's a couple of really simple larger sized mat bras (up to G cup i think). HTH

    Thanks for all the replies, I guess I'll have to make a trip to myer's but unfortunately 2nd trimester hasn't kicked in yet and I am still having vomiting days and lethargy.
    So bra shopping seems traumatic right now.

    Default Maternity bras

    I am now 28 weeks. When should I buy my maternity bras. I remember someone saying wait until you're 7-8 months through, but not sure.
    Has anyone else bought theirs yet? I would hate to go out & buy them and then find that my boobs grow even more!! I think they've stopped growing & DH seems to agree.

    Let me know what you think......

    hi
    youre a lucky one! I had to buy 1 when I was only 10wks, my boobs went up a size.
    but good thing is that they have stayed that size now (am not sure till how long), and I have a few of the maternity bras.

    You should really get them from about 4-5 months - even if you are still comfortable because you will start producing milk/colostrum etc. and the underwire can cause blocked ducts and mastitis later on. I got them at about 4 months and made sure i have room for breast pads(not that Ive needed them yet!). Big W, Kmart and Target have them but I found the Lovable ones really comfortable and although they are expensive i was lucky enough to get 2 pairs of Elle McPherson ones from a friend and they are quite pretty too!
    Good luck!
