"huge"?

are you looking for boob tribe, or actual people who live on large land properties? sorry-i'm looking around and without background i'm getting confused

once upon a time there was a 'huge boobas' tribe, which had to be renamed. It was renamed the 'huge tracts of lands tribe'.


I didn't know what else to call it, and I wanted to start it up again.

sorry!

"land" tribe

Well, if you call "H" large tracts, then I guess I have more acreage than I bargained for too
I asked too, because we are moving this week to our new house, which sits on 40 acres of land in Northern Minnesota!
Both are subjects that are of interest to me-lol.
If we're talking about our bodies though, maybe you could start by suggesting good "inexpensive" nursing bras and shirts for us bustier gals. Mine are grossly old, and I don't think they'll make it as long as #3 will go nursing!

I find nursing bras infuriating! Because I have a lot of "land" I need something supportive. However, when I nurse, I need full access. And I hate underwires. And I hate paying $50 for one bra. I won't mind paying that much for a great bra. I only have 3 more months to find it!

"I" am in the same boat. Finally broke down and spent the more than $50 for a good bra, that is comfortable, with no underwires, that supports my "huge tracts of land".

I went to Decent Exposures for my bra. I will order there again, even once I'm past the need for nursing bras. This one has made it a year, and I love it. All the bras are made in Seattle, in a non-sweatshop environment, and you can alter, to some extent, the bra fittings. They pull on over your head - though you can get non-nursing bras that fasten in the front- which I thought was going to bug me, but I've found it to be very comfy.

Anyway, just thought I'd share my solution, which wasn't cheap, but was the best thing I've found so far.

Ooh... I will have to bookmark them. The last time I had looked for bras they were nearly a hundred dollars!!! $65 is still high, but better.

I've been wearing these shelf bra/tank things for several years and I've pretty much worn the fabric out of them and the store I bought them from is out of business.

Our actual land is pretty good sized, but less than an acre. My baby mesmerizers on the other hand are... well, I was a d-cup before I started making milk.

I was a DD before I became a milk factory!


Now, I did find a bra I call fabulous. It's a bra by Anita, and it's a nursing bra. Trouble is, Anita only makes nursing bras up to an 'H' cup!!! :

they are a bit more pricey than I'd like, but they work very well for my 'estate' and I think they're pretty and comfortable-which for me means supportive. So I wear them in spite of the fact that maybe I should really be in an 'I'.

I have the three- the one I don't have is the soft cup one on the right.

I was a G before baby, and have spent far too many years in bras that don't fit, since you can't just go in and get a properly fitted bra with a little wider strap. Once, just before realizing that I was pregnant, my gf and I went bra shopping to a boutique, and got fitted and was told only two companies made bras in my size, and she didn't have either in the store in my size. ROFL Then I found out I was pregnant, so was glad I hadn't been able to buy any bras.

After trying on nursing bras that weren't fitting me properly, I went ahead and gave DE a try, and I'm glad I did.

I have huge tracts of land as well. Summer always sucks, I tend to get rashes underneath a lot, not matter how hard I try to keep it dry.

I haven't found that perfect bra yet, but still looking. I will look into Decent Exposures.

I clicked thinking this was about actual land also (that we are looking for). But I fit in with the "other" meaning too. I am an H, though loose shirts can "disguise" it a bit.




I actually did not like my DE bra's... to me they feel like wearing a cloth diaper for a bra.


Have had semi decent luck ordering on here: http://www.figleaves.com/us/home.asp Some styles go up to 55FF.

Agk! Loose shirts somehow just make me look fat/preggo!

What about band sizes? I can find 42DD's but not 38 I's or 36 J's? I will have to look at figleaves.com.

I didn't find much at decent exposures either. . . too much fabric.

just looked there- I am sag city w/o an underwire.

I didn't think I was going to like DE for the same reason... no underwire. However, I don't know if it's in the construction or what, but it's actually been very comfortable.

I'll let you in on a secret though... once baby decides he's done, my huge tracts of land are getting a corset - a real one... made specifically for me. Proper support, balanced throughout the torso and hips, instead of hanging from my shoulders. Have to reach my goal weight before then, which may naturally reduce the acreage of my "land". LOL

The original thread had been changed to "Huge tracts of land" because it was getting unfortunate google hits and drawing the wrong sort poster to register.

I am sorry. I am hope y'all will be ok with a silly title so the moderators don't have to keep cleaning up the thread.

It is from Monty Python

I guess my little wasn't quite conspicuous enough?


Wow on the corset, Feingoldmama! sounds. . . fun!

my girls did not go back to their original size when ds1 weaned- of course, I was preggo at the time, so. . . .

also mine have not fluctuated with weight loss, LC's have told me my boobas are ALL glandular tissue!

by the time I'm done with baes and nursing- I will NEED a reduction.

I remember how big my grammie's were. . .

I love this thread! I'm only a DD, but 8 1/2 wks pregnant and already outgrowing my bras.

And holy areolas, Batman! Within the past few days, they have swollen so much, it looks like I have boob on top of boob. Did this happen to anyone else? My DH was quite impressed today (they're usually pretty big anyway).

Thanks for the good bra recommendations. I'll check them out.

I know that mine don't fluctuate much... just a little. Last time I lost weight, I think I lost one cup size. The band size is always the hardest fit for me. 36" ribcage, once I lose weight, and then I can never find a proper fitting bra that stays where it's supposed to.

The corset will be fun, since it's not going to be cinched super tight, just enough to give proper support. I tried on one for picture purposes for a friend who was selling one that she'd made, and all I can say is Wow! My acreage has never had it so good. ROFL It was amazing how different it felt, not having that weight hanging from my shoulders.

I think the main thing I have to decide is if I want a reduction, or want to get the garment. We'll see.

The only difference pg made in my areolas is that I could actually see them! They turned the most beautiful shade of lavendar I'd ever seen!

congrats on your pregnancy! :

I was looking for this thread just today as my old bras which I've had for five years are gone. Yes, five years. I'm a 34J and they are impossible to find without underwire. I'm no longer nursing so its time for something new. I do go braless most of the time but wear one for support for certain outfits. If I can find a comfortable one, I may go back to wearing one regularly...maybe.

I love the idea of a corset if it'll keep me from going under the knife. Have any links to these?

I think I belong here too! I was a 32 DD pre-pregnancy, and now at 8 months I am threatening to bust out of my 34 F. I agree that the hardest part is finding bigger cups with smaller band sizes! I think this is a huge part of the reason so many women wear the wrong bra size, because the size we should wear is impossible to find! Right now my plan for nursing is to get some XL nursing tanks and have my sister take them in at the tummy.
