I am also of the large chested variety and the answer is not all that simple. The bras that I have found at Mimi Maternity have been the best that I found that I was able to try on first. There are some great websites out there that have a much better selection, but tend to be rather pricey ($30-$80 per bra). I found that I needed several different types of bras for different periods during nursing. Initially, I used a non underwire cotton bra that was structured enough to support the boobs but also soft enough to sleep in. The last thing you want to do is change your bra when you are so exhausted from a newborn. Later I purchased a seperate sleep bra for night and a good supportive underwire bra during the day. If I had to do it all again, I would bite the bulllet and order several bras from online and just returned what didn't fit. Live and learn I guess:) Also wait until 3rd trimester, girls may not be done growing yet.
