Although my breasts have grown enormously during pregnancy I still barely fill a B cup. My rib cage has also grown so I need a 40 band to feel comfortable. None of the stores carry this size combo so I'm going to have to order something online.<br><br>
Does anyone have experience with a brand and design in this size that they liked?

My personal size fell on the opposite ends of the spectrum (small band, big cup size) but I can give you some generalized bra-buying advice:<br><br>
I found that my band size went up while pg, and then back down after birth. I also found that my cup size went UP when I was engorged and then down only slightly when milk supply regulated. You may find yourself needing a 38C or 38D when you're actually nursing a tiny baby or two.<br><br>
I suggest not buying too many nursing bras just yet. I recomend getting something stretchy/multi sized like a Bravado, or one of those shelf-bra nursing tanks. I wouldn't get anything too constricting, or inflexible (ie a 40B or a 38C) until the babies are at least 2 weeks old.

I'm the same size and I'm loving the <a href="http://www.milkface.com/detail.aspx?ID=47918" target="_blank">Medela Comfort Bra</a> and the <a href="http://www.milkface.com/detail.aspx?ID=43" target="_blank">Bravado Lifestyle Bra</a>. The first is very comfy and the second is very cute, especially in pink!<br><br>
As for size, strangely my boobs didn't grow during pregnancy, but did when my milk came in (no engorgement) and are still bigger at five weeks. But not THAT much bigger. I still fit comfortably in a B cup, it's just not baggy the way it used to be.

I forgot about one. The Motherwear <a href="http://www.motherwear.com/prod.cfm/cid/36/sid/6123" target="_blank">Ultra-Smooth Underwire Bra</a> is really soft and nice as well. And they have $5 shipping on right now for the US (I'm in Canada though, and the site in my previous post is Canadian $).
