I have a pretty small ribcage and am overall, pretty small from the waist up. I have always been on the chesty side, and I've increased about 2 more cup sizes through pg and bf'ing.<br><br>
When I see pictures of myself or catch myself in a reflection or mirror I realize I am all boobs. I've always been kind of self-conscious about this. Are there any bras out there that have good support and tend to minimize size without restricting / binding too much and causing clogs or drop in supply? I know this is a vain question, but like I said, it's something that tends to bother me.<br><br>
Thanks. m

It is probably different for each woman, but I know (because I was exclusively pumping before DD was able to nurse) that tight bras had a severe effect on my supply.<br><br>
Two cup sizes isn't that bad. Some of us have gone up way more than that - I went up EIGHT cup sizes at my largest!<br>
You know what I did? I started wearing spandex shirts all the time! Enjoy it, make eye contact with those teenaged boys who ogle your ample bosom, make them blush. It can be a fun game for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
You are a woman, not just a woman, but a mother, one who cares more about giving baby the best food than what other people think about your appearance! Glory in your femininity. It's powerful, the effect it has on other people, men in particular.<br>
Stand tall and proud! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Rainbow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rainbow peace">

Yep I KNow the feeling. I keep thinking to myself how thinner I would look if I was only a C cup.<br><br><a href="http://www.bravadodesigns.com" target="_blank">www.bravadodesigns.com</a><br><br>
the ++ are sort of a sports bra design that are sort of minimizing. Well I have tried Medela, take nine, sears, motherwear, motherhood, some brand I can't remember the name bras - I think the Bravados are the best for minimizing.<br><br>
Good luck

You're right. I should be proud, although they are a little more "droopy, jiggly banana boobs" than "Jessica Rabbit boobs". Maybe I need more lift and support than minimizing....then maybe I'll go for spandex.<br><br>
Thanks for the suggestion babydoll. I will check out bravadodesigns.
