How can i find my correct bra size (been breastfeeding for a year)?

By this website i found i turn out to be a 38d-40C. Im 39in measuring around my under arms and 43 in measuring around my breasts. My 1st nursing bra was a 38b and fits ok but my daughter has stretched out the cups. I bought another one recently in the same size and different brand, it rises up in the back and is too tight on my breasts, 38b. I'm thinking i need a bigger bra size. what do you think according to this website?

  • I would go and get fitted at a good shop, the size that you need also depends on the brand. I get fitted every year to make sure that i am wearing the right size (most women wear the wrong size)

  • You definitely need to go to a real bra shop and get properly fitted.

  • Go to VS they will measure you for free and they will help you pick out the right bra that's right for you.

  • at lots of hospitals they have breatfeeding support... they can fit you for a nursing bra if you are still nursing. my sister went to victorias secret and was very happy with their help but i am not sure if they have nursing bras.

  • Victoria's Secret doesn't have nursing bras, but they will measure you. I got measured at Motherhood Maternity.
