HELP! Bras for big boobs

I need serious help with a bra problem.

When I'm not pregnant I'm a top heavy 34 or 36 DD. When I was pregnant with Caleb I got up to a 38G or 38DDDD (same thing). Oh my gosh that is big and heavy and just tooooo much boobs. I am now probably close to the G part again with this pregnancy but I pulled out the bras from my last pregnancy and they are too big around. They are all 38s so I guess I was bigger around back then (I lost a little weight after Caleb). So here is the problem. I can't find that size around here and even when I found some 38Gs at Lane Bryant last pregnancy they really weren't comfortable, they were kind of scratchy and another drawback is they aren't nursing bras . I ended up ordering some Medela nursing bras off of ebay which were way more comfortable but they weren't very supportive at all. Anyone out there been hit to many times by the booby fairy wand like me that wants to share who has good supportive comfortable bras nursing or not in size huge? I really need some help I need comfortable, supportive, locally available so I can try them on bras. Really I don't think this is too much to ask right? A girl should have the right to a good fitting bra

I was going to suggest Lane Bryant. I gave up on having an actual nursing bra and went with more support. I love their cotton bras and I love the balconette underwire one is cool too.

Rena, thanks I might try a differnt type at Lane Bryant but when I was there before they didn't have many in the really big sizes so I didn't have much choice. They suggested ordering them online but I hate to order soemthing I can't try on KWIM?

Amba, thanks but what is bravodo? More info please.

I didn't like my bravado bra very much. Try here...http://www.figleaves.com/us/nsf/qwis...wer=1&answer=1

Im a 34DD regularly, and i was a 36G while i was nursing, and i never did find a comfortable bra with good support. Oh also you might want to go to Nordstroms, i just got some new bras from there not too long ago, and i was asking them about nursing bras and they said they carry all sizes! HTH!

Becky, I feel your pain! I'm past all the nursing days though.
A friend of mine shares this problem too. I can't remember right now, but she
found a great source. She went and tried them on locally, then ordered them
thru the mail. She's about the same size, and nursing too! I've email her and I'll
forward her info when she answers.

Anita bras are comfy. Nordstrom has them. Some of them have underwire...that's a concern for me, but for other it might not be.

A friend of mine sent me 7 brand new bras from figleaves.com and they're great. They have the Anita microfiber bra in your size...it is seriously the most comfortable bra I've ever put on.

I like the Bravado Original, but I hate the supreme. It is uncomfortable and cumbersome...

I was going to say Fredricks of Hollywood but they don't have nursing bras. Not unless you count the kind where the cups are cut out! lol
I found a perfect one for you!

Thanks ladies I might go to Nordstrom and see what they have. I appreciate the online sources but I'm just not sure I'm ready to shell out $30 to $60 for something I can't even try out in person.

Thanks Patty let me know what you find out...I really want to try some before I buy.

The Maddox Shop in Casa Linda can fit you. They have nursing bras and can also convert other bras into nursing bras for you. I buy all my bras there. I've always been a G cup or larger.

I am 36DD to a 38DD and I wear Layne Bryant. I also know of a shop in Dallas (Casa Linda area) called The Maddox Shop which does custom bra's. Not sure what the prices are but I got my bridal undergarments from there and they fit perfect! http://www.maddoxshop.com/
