I'm a 42DDD with ds I just used normal bras and pulled the babies out anywhere, what? I was 18 and living in the islands, no one ever commented.<br>

I have Bravado bras. They work fine, but I dunno if I'm all that keen on them looks-wise.

I prefer something with more support for my larger chest. Something that gives more definition than a sportsbra style one can do.<br><br>
I've always shopped at breakoutbras.com

I am a 38E-F and I like LLL's bra, which I got at Nordstroms. I was really surprised that it is so supportive w/o underwire.

Bravado supreme! I don't think I've ever had a more supportive bra in my life. I loooooove them. They don't have any wires and are so nice!

I started off with Bravado normal bra (yeah, sorry that's real descriptive I know!) They are the Bravado plus range or something similar - you pull them over your head and have two snaps that hold up the cups. Highly unsupportive, but I practically lived in mine right after giving birth. Really very comfy (but really best for round the house wear).<br><br>
I also have a Fancy Free nursing bra. Great support, but I felt that it began to break down fairly quickly - but I was a fairly heavy user. It also got less comfortable over my shoulders, and felt like it was digging in more.<br><br>
At the same time I bought the Fancy Free I got a Bravado Supreme, and this is probably the one I like best. Very comfortable, nicely supportive, and great access for feeding. I liked it so much I bought another. And the best part - the customer service was wonderful. I broke the clip after about 7 months of use, and emailed asking if they could sell me a new clip ('cos the rest of the bra was fine and I was pretty sure I could fix it). But within a week they sent me a brand new bra -apparently they have a six month warranty on them (which I was only just out of). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Incidentally I'm wearing a 44 H (how horrific is that!!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br>
And I put all my bras through the washing machine (in a special bra bag). I do line dry them (but we line dry everything). I just don't have time or energy to hand wash anything !!
