I just got a "Seamless Full Fit" Underwire Nursing bra made by Medela and it fits! (I'm currently a 40 G). It's really comfy and seamless so no lines and no cone boobs either. HAHA :LOL<br><br>
I have the WORST time finding bras that fit large boobs so I am sooo glad I found something!<br><br>
I got it at breakout bras in case anyone needs anything and I have a 10% coupon code if anyone wants to use it...it's: BB779877 Free shipping too! They have quite a few large boobed bras too (and non underwire for those that like that kind.)

I am so happy for you! I know what a pain in the butt it is to try and find a good nursing bra. I have a very weird size (32 F) so it has been nearly impossible to find good bras. I finally founds some at figleaves.com They have cute bras and they have sizes for ladies with huge cup sizes but are small around.

I'm a 30F and also find it difficult to get bras that fit.<br><br>
Try <a href="http://www.biggerbras.com" target="_blank">www.biggerbras.com</a><br>
BUT FIRST - measure yourself correctly according to these instructions. 80% of women don't know their proper size, and "Getting fitted" is a larf. <a href="http://www.plussizebras.org/measure.html" target="_blank">http://www.plussizebras.org/measure.html</a>

Oh those are great sites, thank you!! I went to a speciality bra store to get measured and she made me take my top and bra off-it was kind of awkward but I guess it was the right way. She did the 5 measurements like that link says.

I was fitted a number of times and came up with different answers anywhere from 34D to 32G. Turns out 30F is my actual size. Most fitters won't take your bra off and don't take proper measurements because there's really no 'training' to be able to fit a woman's bra properly. A well-fitting bra should not ride in the back, should not dig in the shoulders, the center between the cups should touch your breastbone, and the cups should not pouch or wrinkle, nor should your breast be bulging out the tops or sides (under your arms).<br>
But if you're an odd size, it's not like you can just go to a shopping mall and try on bras until one fits you properly! You've got to special order and hope you're right! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

EXACTLY! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: You poor thing, I thought a 32 F was hard to find-I cannot imagine being a 30 F!

I so needed this thread! I ordered some nursing bras from Earthy Birthy Mama, and she sized me only using my pre-pregnancy weight, height,and bra size...and the things only come in SML. My mom sent me ONE nursing bra that fits NOW, so I have a bad feeling about how good it's gonna be once I'm actually nursing hahaha!<br><br>
I'm totally going to look at these sites, and I guess I'll try to order something when the babies are actually here....THANKS!!

I was a 32/34 F-G at the end of my first pregnancy, and managed to get a really, really comfortable and well-fitting nursing bra. Goddess 510. It had to be special ordered through a boutique and cost me NINETY TWO DOLLARS.<br>
But it really was worth it.<br>
It kind of fits like a straight jacket on someone with such a teeny body, but it's probably the most comfortable thing I've ever worn around my boobs.
