  • Victorias Secret. They have fantastic bras and yes, they make nursing bras! They are a little on the expensive side, but if you are that big the money is worth it for the support!

  • I have the same problem when I am pregnant I wear a 40F but the motherhood here carries my size. Try going to, are great and specialize in bigger sizes), and I think and carry some bigger sizes but charge $60-80.

  • The Hanes/Bali/Playtex outlets and catalog had some larger sized nursing bras in them.

  • Victoria's Secret doesn't carry bra's that large either. You will have to look online. I had a DD prior to nursing. With full boobs I had a DDD.. I actually never found a nursing bra. I nursed full time for 2 kids over 3 years... I just got a bra I could pull them out over...

  • I always ordered mine through JCPenney.

  • Motherhood told you they didn't have anything larger than a D???? Sorry hun but the sales girl flat out doesn't know what she is talking about. I've purchased an EE and an F from Motherhood and they carry up to a J cup size!!!!! I just bought an F from Motherhood last week, and it's a nursing bra....they not only had up to J right there in the store but they had sports bras for comfort in a 5x! I'd call back or go back and talk to someone else, or order directly online!

  • I agree with Mom2Jack04, that girl doesn't know what she's talking about. I bought two nursing bras from them when I was preggo in 38E and 40F. Either go online, or go to Kohl's. They have this new thing where you can order extended sizes through the customer service phone and there's no shipping charges, and I know they carry nursing bras in the maternity section (which is actually a subdivision of Motherhood).

  • I just used sports bras and built in bra tanks while breast feeding mine. I'm a 36 DD

  • Never ever wear a sports bra. The uniboob look is not attractive.
