So, I have large breasts and thus am so very uncomfortable all the time. I have on nursing bra at the moment and I hate it. Seriously, the only thing I hate about bf'ing is my boobs. Can't stand them, I want my old ones back! So, seeing as that isn't gonna happen do any of you have a nursing bra you love? And I am asking larger chested women only seeing as that is what I am. They are just so heavy seems like nothing will hold them up. Help me....

Sorry, I wish I could help. I don't like the nursing bras that I'm currently using, and was hoping to get some advice from your thread. Maybe someone will have some advice for us!

Hi - I am a 38D, i hope that counts as large chested....Anyhoo, I have had great luck with the bras from Motherwear. The one i am wearing right now is this one,<br><a href="http://www.motherwear.com/shopping/prod_detail/main.asp?uid=D7BBDCBC-B468-4288-8320-AE925E16D329-25182157&MainCatID=0&catID=6&sl=0&Clearance=0&productID=2443" target="_blank">http://www.motherwear.com/shopping/p...productID=2443</a><br>
I like it cus it looks feminine and the snaps are in the center, not on the straps. Its not as full-coverage as some other bras, but i find it very good cus i dont like underwires. Other mamas i know who are a D-cup and over like the Bravado bras. They are not too delicate-looking, but support is great and very functional for nursing.<br>
Another idea is a nursing camisole. those seem to have quite good support. Motherwear has those too.<br>
If you dont want a 'nursing' bra, my sis wore the Body By Victoria stretch microfiber bras for the whole 3 years she nursed her DD. She just pulled the cup down to nurse.<br>
Hope that helps!<br>

Another 'booby-licious' mama :LOL

36 DD right now, and I don't have the perfectbra, but I have a few standards:<br>
1) Underwire - I like the lift and separation, plus non-underwires are way too sweaty down south<br>
2) Top hook closure that I can do one-handed<br>
3) A seamless cup for a natural rounded shape - Pointy boobs piss me off (On myself - I don't care about other people's pointy boobs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">)<br><br>
I also don't have great selection where I live now. But my 2 faves have been:<br>
Motherhood's Cotton seamless-cup bra. THey have lots that are a shiny material, and they suck. The cups aren't strong enough. But there's one that is cottony and it has supportive cups. However, my underwire poked through and now i can't find this one at my store.<br><br>
At wal-mart, they sell like 2 bras. But one of them, I think the brand is "best form" - it comes in a bag, and has lacy seamless cups - is my new favorite. The cups are firm and supportive, although the straps don't stay adjusted from day-to-day. BUt for the price, I can put up with that.<br><br>
THey don't have it online - I was going to post the link. THey only have the playtex expected moments ones online, which I use to sleep in and under my sports bra<br><br>
I hate wal-mart and know it sucks, but my options here are target (WHich doesn't carry my size in their underwire bra), motherhood, and wal-mart.<br><br>
I hope other ladies have some good recs - but I don't do the stretchy, wireless, etc. bra. I needed comfort the first few weeks post partum, but now I need a hard-core bra that I'm not embarassed to wear!

My absolute favorite bra is the Medela Comfort Line bra. It's built like a sports bra, and it is very supportive. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's a racerback style bra, so the staps cut close to my neck (the strap shows with most shirts). I wear it to bed...I need the support.<br><br>

I am a 40DD/F and I love my Leading Lady bra. Here's a site w/ a bazillion bras: <a href="http://www.birthandbaby.com" target="_blank">Birth and Baby</a> and here's the Leading Lady page <a href="http://www.birthandbabyorders.com/index.php?c=50" target="_blank">HERE</a> The one I have is #447 near the bottom.<br><br>
I can't do underwire since bf b/c I am prone to plugged ducts. So just be careful. Some mamas are fine w/ it and others aren't. Don't know what you prefer! I find I've got good support and "shape" w/ this bra. :LOL Anyway, I know big boobs are a pain. They can decrease in size a bit after nursing is well established, like the 6m mark. It's one of those signs around then that mamas get paranoid they're losing their milk, but really it's just you and your baby changing. Anyway, just saying there's hope!<br><br>

36 DDD here. I have pretty good luck with the godess 511. It's softcup but very supportive and durable. The only problem is that it shows a little bit through clothes. I am hoping to try the seamless fancee free soon, I have heard great things about it.
