Anyone else dealing with breasts of mammoth porportions!?<br><br>
I looked in the mirror this morning after my shower and holy crap...I think they are bigger than my head!<br><br>
I was a DD before I got pregnant this time and I have no idea what size I am now. Kind of afraid to find out. Oh well, I hope the new baby gets good use out of them...my DH seems to a little intimidated.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Just had to vent...

I am massive. I was easily a DDD before pregnancy. Now I think I am wearing a G and need to move up. I don't know how much bigger they can get! Hubby is fascinated with them, more out of freakish curiosity than sexual desire.<br><br>
All I will say is that after I am done nursing, sign me up for a breast reduction!

Another DD here before PG - now I'm an E-F, and I'm due in 5 weeks. I know some people love the boost, but for me, it's downright painful. My back and my neck are a mess.

I hear ya on this one. I was a DD before pregnancy and now I am a freaking G! Of course I WAS a G a month ago when I last measured, I may be even larger now. Zero bras fit (I have a small bandsize, 32). I ordered a Bravado bra but the band size was way to big for it to offer any support. DH has suggested that I shop for bras in a "Stripper Store" - sadly, I am deseperate enough to think that might not be a bad idea (now if only I knew what a "Stripper Store" was <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">).

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: me too & I don't like them... they are just too big & uncomfortable. With dd I remember nursing her freaking out b/c they were bigger than her head (she was a big baby). This time they will be bigger than the entire baby. I went thru a growth spurt a few weeks ago & outgrew all my bras, so I got out my nursing bras from dd (the ones from right after she was born which are the biggest I have) but they are all too small!! Seriously I am frightened!!

Have you tried Wacoal? They make large cup sizes - and they're the only good quality ones I've found that come in 32. I was a 32D, but I bought one last week and was at least a 34DD. I say "at least" because I bought a 34DD on Thursday, but it didn't seem to fit on Friday!<br><br>
I'm not sure what to do about a nursing bra - I'll cross that bridge when I come to it!<br><br>
P.S. You can find Wacoal in better dept stores - Macy's carries them around here, and DH has bought some for me in Nordstrom's.

Now that I am 8 weeks, I have filled my DDDs to the max. I don't even know what size is next or where to get the brs. And the PAIN when I let them out at night. They practically hit my knees now. Ugh..<br><br>
Breastfeeding with these big, droopies is really hard. I'm committed, but I can't just yank them out like a friend of mine. It's a whole process.

my favorite bra for nursing is the Goddess 511, and I get it at <a href="http://www.ladygrace.com" target="_blank">www.ladygrace.com</a> I wear a 36H and dont need underwires for a great lift. I hate leading lady and fancee free!<br><br>
My fave non nursing bra is the Goddess 110, and it is very gravity defying, also with no underwires.<br><br><a href="http://www.bravissimo.com" target="_blank">www.bravissimo.com</a> makes cute bras too, but I havent bought any yet bc they are so expensive.<br><br>
I was a 34DDD in high school, and was a 36FF before I got preg the first time. I hear you on the huge boobs.

I hear ya! I too was a DD before... even having lost a bunch of weight the boobies were hanging in there at DD. Since getting pregnant, they are HUGE. I just know my bras don't fit, b/c I'm too cheap to buy new ones just for pregnancy... I got a couple cheap soft nursing bras to get me through the first few weeks at home (mostly just to wear nursing pads if nec) and then I'll go and get sized and buy some good ones, once my supply have evened out. Hopefully it'll sort itself out...<br><br>
I am SO OVER (as my high school students would say) these huge boobies! (as they'd probably not say <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

I hear y'all! I was a 32C pre-pregnancy (this is my first and I'm now 34 weeks) and bought a few Bravado nursing bras to try out, but found they weren't supportive enough. When I went to get measured a few weeks ago at Nordstrom they told me I was a 34DDD. I was in shock - and denial - so I went to another bra store and they measured me as a 34F <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> .<br><br>
I can't imagine them getting any bigger (they are so heavy right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: ), but I'm guessing they probably will once my milk comes in. The bras I have been wearing for the past few weeks are made by Anita. They are a little pricey, but I feel really supported (and without an underwire).

I never thought I was a plastic surgery type, but I am SO TOTALLY getting a lift and reduction when my BFing days are over.<br><br>
Once, long ago, I had cute breasts. Now they are a pair of orbs threatening to take over the earth...

I started as a nice, respectable 34B. I'm now a D, and the lovely underwire that fit so well last week will probably be replaced soon by a DD. <b>Never</b> did I expect to be that size!<br><br>
Did I mention I'm only 9 weeks pregnant? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes">

I was a 34G pre preg. I measured and ordered a 34J nursing bra (Decent Exposures) last month--I fit right into the middle of that size range. I put it on last week . . . and it's very snug.<br><br>
I think they're going to be tent size by the time my milk comes in. I'm considering a scaffold on wheels to support them.
