Ok, the boobs are getting bigger and I need a new bra. Fine. Measured myself as described on Bravado's website and came up with the absolutely shocking 46/48F. OMG! : I thought I was more around a 44DD.

Now where in God's green creation am I finding a nursing bra in that size? The bravado Supreme bras go up to 46F and I'll be getting one of those but do I have any other options?

I did't find Bravado bras to be supportive enough for me. Very comfy but not supportive.

I liked Wacole bras ALOT. VERY expensive but SO supportive. They are underwire so I only wore them during the day. If you can, wait until your milk has come in and you have nursed a little bit before going somewhere to get sized since the girls definitely change size in the first month or so of nursing.

Bravado were what I used last time. But since then they have added to their line and they have the Supreme nursing bra, with hook and eye closures in the back for more support. Last time they just had the one style and I loved that but certainly not much support.

bumping in from september's DDC to say that the bravado supremes are wonderful, and they actually go up to a 46H. i really truly love my supremes, they are the first bra in a long time that are comfortable and make my breasts look nice, IFKWIM.

Dropping in from another DDC...

had the best selection of bras I could find online when I was pregnant with DS. Figleaves carries some bigger bras too. I ordered a royce bra from them.

I was a 36J when my son was born. things could be worse!

I'm glad you asked this. I'm a 38J right now and I'm sure I'll get alittle bigger cup size once my milk comes in. I'm not real sure what to try now. I hated my last nursing bra.

See my problem isn't the F, that's quite doable. The problem is the 48. Most nursing bras end at 44, even the Bravado Supreme only goes to 46.

The Bravado Supreme looks absolutely fantastic. Here's hoping my mom can find it cheaper at home than the price from Bravado.

if your mama can't find it locally let me know - I'm in Ontario, and could always mail one to Sweden for ya!

Aww thanks for the offer Baby Bumblebee.

If my mom can't find it at the local store she is going to go to Halifax next week so she'll look there. I'll keep you posted.
