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 am one of those crazy out of proportion people, too--a size 2 and 34 DD when I'm not pregnant or nursing...I don't have much to offer in the way of help, other than to say, spend a lot on a bra, go somewhere with a fitter...nothing makes a person look sloppier than an ill-fitting bra when you already have more than your fair share in that area!

I wear the Goddess 511 when nursing and the 110 when not nursing.

I used to be a 32DDD. I am now a 36H.

Any suggestions on sleeping bras? I've got a a decent Anita daytime bra that is working alright...although maybe I'll look into that Goddess bra. But nighttime sucks (ha!). The nice suportive ones for the daytime feel like they are strangling me during the nighttime, and the less supportive ones, well, leave me hanging all over the place in a bad way. Thanks for the responses.
