Big Boobs - What's a good bra brand?

 Hey!

Previously I wore a 34 DDD or a 36 DD (DDD is hard to find!). Now that I am preggers I've gone through a boob explosion. None of my bras fit anymore so I have the 4 tit look going on (when it looks like you have 4 boobs because the top of your bra is cutting into the top of your breasts).

What brand is good for larger breasted women AND for breastfeeding? Usually either my boobs look really low or pointed when trying on bras that are suppose to be for larger breasted women (yuck) and.. I doubt Victoria Secrets will carry my new size.

HELP!

** UPDATE **

I went to Izzy Maternity and these 2 gay guys hooked me up. It is so nice to be able to BREATHE and not have back aches!

What stores do you have around you? Macy's carries Wacoal which should easily have many styles in your size. Nordstrom will have a TON of brands. Lane Bryant may start at 38, I'm not sure, but if they start at 36, they'll have a lot in DD and DDD, but larger cups are only available online. 

All of my bras are Elomi brand. they were just on zulily but I really like the styles and fit and you shouldn't have any trouble finding the size you need.

Lane Bryant is where I get all my bras. They will measure you and help you find the one that works for you. I wear a G cup so they can be hard to find in store, but they usually have at least one style in the larger sizes in store. If they dont have the one you like in store they will order it and ship it to your home for free. I used to have trouble with bras and now I wont buy mine anywhere else. I love their bras and they hold up really well.

Why don't you go to a maternity store ?  At the end of my pregnancy I was a 38DD and that's where I found.

I wear Cacique from Lane Bryant but I'm not sure if they have bras made for breastfeeding. 

I got all of mine from Sears in the maternity department when I was pregnant and they fit fine.

I get my bras from Just My Size (jms.com).  They've got great sales and a variety of sizes in different styles.  I'm a 42DD.  The only brand I wouldn't suggest is Glamorise...especially their minimizer bras.  My baby is 7, so I don't remember the brand of nursing bras I had.  I didn't like them much though as far as support went.

A lot of maternity stores carry nursing bras in the larger sizes. I was a 38F when I was breastfeeding and I found a good bra at Motherhood Maternity. I don't remember the brand though.

 I am worried about support. 1 boob is like 10 lbs (LOL)!

Maternity stores for nursing bras many retailers and designers do NOT design for pregnancy and nursing. I went up to a 36F. While pregnant and nursing

 Yeah...I remember that feeling  It's not enough that they're huge...they're also full of milk!  DH used to ask me if I needed a crane and/or scaffolding to get my boobs into my bra...LOL!

Medela sells extended size nursing bras and they are wonderful quality.
