cant find a nursing bra

before i was pregnant i was a 36 not even aa. now im nursing and am a 38A and cant find a nursing bra in my size to save my life. the only thing i can wear that decently fits is one of those sleep bras. im so frustrated right now, first everyone said my boobs would get like 2-3 times the cup size i was before and second i cant find anything in the stores or online. does anybody know of a place that might sell nursing bras in a 38A or even a 36A and i could use an extender? thanks

  • Try a 36 B. Usually if they don't have your size, you go down a number and up a cup or up a number and down a cup. I used to be a certified bra fit specialist.

  • Hi! I know exactly how you feel! I have always had a small cup size...I'm a 36A and can't even find a normal bra like that in stores very often. So when I was nursing, extenders were my lifesavers! Try Motherhood Maternity. They don't have very many different styles, but the ones they do have are very comfortable (underwire or not) and are available in most sizes. I also got my extender from them at a very low price. Here is there site: http://www.motherhood.com/maternity/bras-nursing-bras.asp. I hope you find something that works!

  • Try Medela. I purchase all my bras from them. I have the opposite problem you have. I wear a very extended size but they carry a HUGE variety of sizes.
