Hi - I'm having my third baby in a few weeks and could really use some new nursing bras. Is there a good bra store around somewhere in RI? This is the first baby for me to be born here, so I don't know where to begin searching. Regular maternity stores don't usually work for me, since I'm rather well-endowed. I am willing to spend some $$ to get a good, supportive bra (or 5!)
TIA!

i know there's a plus-size maternity store in cumberland. they may specialize in some of the larger-sized bras.

also, bravado nursing bras have many larger sizes. the nursing store at W&I sells them, as does Isis Maternity in MA (according to the Bravado site).

Yes, Isis Maternity has a nice Bravado, as well as Melinda G selection. The Nursing Moms store at W&I has some...call before you go!

Also, have you looked at Ruth's in Cranston. They are a bra/undies specialty shop. Open at weird hours, but helpful, especially in larger sizes.

Good luck! I'd love to hear what works for you.

Thanks, guys! I did find out about Ruth's and plan to head over there as soon as my milk is in and I can better assess my size. I'll keep the others in mind, too. I do like the Bravados but find they don't look so great under clothes - I do wear them to sleep every night though (even now while pregnant!)
I may look into that plus-sized maternity store, too. I'm not plus-sized, but sadly my boobs are! LOL!! That can make it a bit tough to find good bras...

I had a terrible experience ordering from this store. I would NOT recommend them, ever. I even filed a complaint with the BBB and the state.

A good online source for large bras is Motherwear. http://www.motherwear.com. I've been very happy with my DDD bras!
I also ordered some Playtex ones from the Hanes site (http://www.onehanesplace.com/product...nbr=3011000000) They were on sale for 2 for $30 and I'm happy with them as well.
