Big Boob mamas: A question

I started out well-endowed (D cup) and the girls are certainly getting bigger. I just read in What to Expect that they generally grow 3 cup sizes! AHH! Am I going to be able to find bras (prenatal and nursing)? Is my back going to die? What did you find in your experience? Thanks in advance.

  • I was a 38 DD and just bought bras that were 40-42 DD when I was breast feeding. WTE is way exagerating. Now I did have the quadra boob thing going on, but it wasn't that bad. I HTH don't be scared!! :) And now, (my son is 2 1/12) I think my boobies are smaller than before I got pregnant :(

  • i was a III when I pregnant, believe it or not walmart and kmart sells triple D's in the "box" bra section. but motherhood maturnity is a great place as well! they'll hook you up! be proud of the girls!! and in the end if your back hurt as bad as mine did, breast reduction worked great for me!

  • My boobs didnt grow 3 cup sizes....I went from a D to a DD. This is also my first so i dont know it that has anything to do with any of it.

  • I was in a D & went to DD during pregnancy & have stayed there (if i lost weight im sure id lose the boobs!).. I nursed my daughter till she was 18mo.

  • Yea, I think that would have to be in the most rare of cases. I am big chested. I never grew too much bigger that I had to change bra sizes with any of my kids. Nor have I ever known anyone that grew that big. Thats crazy.!.Chances are you'll be OK..

  • My breasts didn't grow much bigger. I was a 42 DD when I got pregnant and was probably a 44DD when I gave birth.
