Huge Tracts of Land Tribe - Page 3
Well, I just splurged and got a 36 G (I think) nursing bra...Beauty bylpar Jeunique with Banderin (built on "bridge construction" technology). I get AMAZING lift (for it not having an underwire) but I'm not sure it's the most comfortable bra in the world. The cups seem to be comfortable, it's the band around the ribcadge that isn't so much. I've only worn it for a few hours so far, though, so I'll try to let you know if that changes with time. I don't see a website on their "instruction book" for the bra (yeah, I KNOW!) but they have offices in Germany and the USA and Canada, maybe? Phone number is 909.598.8598 and fax is 909.594.8961. You could probably call/fax and ask for them to send any materials. The bra ran me roughly $100, but that was here in Israel, so it might be slightly cheaper in the USA (where it was imported from). The problem is that I couldn't "fit" a bra through the internet...so needed to try them on and decided to just buy where I was.
Oh wait: here is a new website I found: http://www.healthybraboutique.com/
The bra is a bridge for sure, but I look about 10 lbs lighter with the girls hiked up to where they're meant to be. The band does take some getting used to, but it is way WAY more comfortable than an underwire trying to support all this tissue! I have also had to adjust to the shoulder clips which are not easy one-handed, but the openings aren't made for nursing per se - they allow you to truly lift your boobies into place. So hard to explain but I am a true believer! This cost about $65 plus tax and shipping - the prices vary depending on whether you get Made in the USA or not.
Oh, and "hi!" I think I found my tribe.
I was a 34 DD before babies, and now I'm a 36G. I love my boobs, but finding a decent nursing bra in this size has been an ordeal.
Right now, I wear a Goddess brand 38J. I think that will be changing soon. I am already starting to grow in the boobs. Prior to pregnancy, the bra was a PERFECT fit, now I take it off and there are red marks everywhere. You can see the seam indentations from the cups on my breasts.
There is a great shop in St Louis that I go to usually for my bras. I have to drive over 2 hours to get there, but there just isn't any place around here for me to get them. And I am NOT going to spend that kind of money on a bra without trying it on first.
On another note, I just bought a T-shirt not too long ago from thinkgeek.com that says "Huge Tracts of Land" on it. I've gotten several compliments from other women who love Monty Python.
I'm exactly the same! I've always had large boobs, 32E/F, but now after I've been pregnant I'm a G and they're all saggy and have lost their shape!
When I was pregnant I wore loads of different maternity lingerie, but the Freya Dotty set was my favourite! I bought it from www.lingerieplease.co.uk and it was a life saver!!
yeah. Before DD I complained about my C-D cup...little did I know that all the pregnancy weight I gained would migrate straight to my chest (which morphed into a 36GG....which is pretty much impossible to find. lol)
