Any suggestions. As my size C's filled and are now size G's, none of my old shirts fit and even finding a decent fitting bra has been super challenging. Please, for anyone with similar situation, any suggestions? Bras? Tank tops wtih built in bras that don't simply squish? Brands? Thanks so much in advance!

I have always used Bravado and I like my bra from motherhood even. I got a nursing tank from Target that I love as well.

I'm a 34DD or 34E. Small frame, large chest. I don't think 34 is too uncommon nor is DD or E, but for some reason those two together is difficult to find. I couldn't find anything local, even at the bra outlet store in my size, let alone something comfy. So, I went to to find a bra that fits. They have $1 shipping and a very liberal return policy and a large selection. So, you can literally try on several different bras until you find the right fit. I ended up with the new medela bra.

Can't help much on the tops, most of mine still fit as I'm not much bigger than before jr.
