When does boob growth slow down?

Pre-pregnancy I was a 34b now I'm a 36e... Explain that one! And I'm only 24+6. I'm not used to having boobs sad

I went from a B to DD over the pregnancy with my DD, quite a lot of growth up to 10 weeks then it slowed right down and the issue was more the band than the cups tbh. Extenders are good. I was a C before she was born, then DD when the milk came in, but then they went back down within just a few days. I wouldn't buy more than a couple each time to allow for washing etc, things do change very quickly!

I had to buy at 10 weeks, 15 weeks and again at 25 weeks. I'm 27 weeks now and although the capsize has slowed the back size has increased. I did start off tiny though.
The last lot I bought were non wired and stretchy to try and make them last a bit longer before I need to buy new sizes again smile.

Ok it sounds like if I can last till 10wks then what I buy then might take me through till nursing (and maybe again on the way back down after nursing for a bit). Thanks.

Bravado body silk nursing bras are nice and stretchy. That's what I used during pg and bf. mine went up about 6 sizes and back down again. The biggest was when my milk came in 2 or 3 days after the birth

There's a reason they say not to get measured up for nursing bras until 37 weeks... not the best news for you unfortunately but yes, they probably will continue to grow though hopefully not at the same rate!

I'm not sure if this is scientific, but I think that when the milk comes around 3 days after you've given birth is when you will probably be at your biggest.

I went up 3 cups sizes in the first 10 weeks, and haven't changed much since. My back size has probably increased a bit though, so I probably should get some new ones now (35 weeks).

I grew hugely by 11 weeks but am still comfortable in those I bought then and I'm 27 weeks now.

I desperately needed new bras at 8 weeks, and the M&S wife said I'd probably be back for even bigger ones at 20 weeks.
I'm now 30+5 and its only now Im considering getting some new ones.

I'm 19 weeks and mine have gone up and down tbh. Tad annoyed though as bought a new bra a couple of weeks ago and it had room to grow and it's now too tight!!
To begin with my cup size didn't change much so I could get away with back extenders, got mine in JL and they are great

Mine exploded at 4-10 weeks, then actually got a bit smaller hmm I'm 32 weeks now. Who knows what will happen in the next few months!

Hi
I'm only in my 8th week and my boobs have grown massively. If they continue at this rate I'llneed new bras in the next cup size every month! And a wheelbarrow to carry them around blush
Does the growth rate ever level off? Or do they just keep growing till the birth?
And if they keep going, how many times did you buy a whole new size of bras through your pg?
Thanks
