  • Try a maternity store-- they have the bigger sizes, and they also have bra extensions so if your cup size doesn't change, just the strap size, then you're all set! Also, the bigger the bra size, usually the more expensive-- not necessarily so at a maternity store. I feel your pain-- I've gone from a 36 D to a 38 E, and I'm only 16 weeks along, and I'm afraid of where I'm going to be when I'm finally nursing. But I found lots of bigger sizes at the maternity store, and they are quite comfortable.

  • go to motherhood..i bought a good nursing bra for $18

  • motherhood maternity all bras are 18$ all sizes too, and they measure you so it fits right. A tip I learned is make sure the cups on a nursing bra(if you are going that route) have room to let out. So basically right now, buy it and make sure its on the tightest hook and can be let out as needed, prevents having to go rebuy them. Walmarts bras, are the smae price or more, and they dont last as long support wise...imo.

  • I have found that sports bras are the most comfortable.

  • If you are going to nurse, why don't you go ahead & get nursing bras. This way you can wear them before & after birth. I just bought 3 from MotherHood. I'm not big at all...36C...but I like them because they are soft w/ no underwire, yet suppportive at the same time. They have regular maternity bras too.

  • If you done want to spend the extra money but the cup size is fine just the other part is not, you can go to walmart and buy extenders. The hook onto your hooks and just adds extra length. You can usually find them where the crafts are. Thats what I did everytime I out grew a bra but the cup size was fine. The cost no more than 2 dollars usually and are great.
