LOL. I'm finding every other day or so that another bra isn't fitting anymore. 😜
I started out at a 32DD/32E and today I measured myself and should be a G. A G cup!
I'm going to head to Nordstrom for a couple of well-fitted bras in the next week or so (if you're a busty gal- especially with a small band size- Nordstrom is about the only place to go). Once I find a bra or two that I like and that FIT, then I will likely look into buying some other colors online if I find a better price.
I knew this DDC thing would be a good idea, but I had no clue how helpful it would be to know that I'm not the only one walking around feeling like the stay-puft marshmallow Lady. 😳
This may not work for larger breasted moms, but I was smallish before I got pregnant and although they seem so much bigger now, I'm still not huge. (probably a B cup or maybe a bit larger) Anyway, I wish I had a brand name but I don't but I bought myself a very soft reversible sports bra that I am LIVING IN. Seriously, I wear it at night too, because if I don't, my nipples get so sore!! It helps a lot to have the extra support. Anyway, I've never been big on sports bras--last I tried one it just smooshed and gave me monoboob, or in my case, more like flat chested. But this bra is shaped and other than the hot pink strap peeking out sometimes, pretty much gives me the same shape as a regular bra. Anyway, if you are in the market for a new bra, I highly recommend one like this!! No clips to dig into your back, soft strechy fabric, what's not to love??
Bravissimo is definitely on my radar once I've been measured by a professional so I'm sure I'm buying the right size. The good news is that the G-cup ladies are, at least, still firm and perky so I can even get away with wearing a cami or no bra at all for the moment. I just want to have the proper foundation garments in place so that remains the case as long as possible. I'm used to paying $60-80 at Victoria's Secret, so $50ish for a few that will fit now doesn't bother me. I have to say that this is the first time I've been actively jealous of smaller busted ladies who can still fit into mainstream bra sizes!
I would love to just wear a cami but I can't find any that fit me. Drives me crazy because I really prefer them to bras. I also love those ain cotton sports bras that just come in small, medium, and large but those don't work for me either. And MQ I'm right there with you on being jealous of ladies who fit in mainstream sizes! I could get four maternity bras in a department store for what I paid for one of mine. And I'm already outgrowing it, too.
