Send your questions to the experts before the end of Tuesday 20 November and we'll be linking to the answers on 29 November.
What design of bra is best for post-breastfeeding boobs where all the fullness has gone from the top? I wear a DD so that wires enclose the whole boob and don't dig in underneath, but that means there is space at the top.
Last time I was pregnant I wore 34JJ nursing bra's, they were horrible and unattractive, I had unaboob through the 15 months of feeding. I wanted to go up a cup size but couldn't find anything that fitted well, the K cups actually felt smaller, even if I went up a back size. I liked the Elomi Bra's with Soft Flex wires, but they just came up small and there was no chance they would fit. I was a 32G before I was pregnant, after I stopped breast feeding went to a 34GG.
I am pregnant with DC2, my boobs have already gone up 2 cup sizes and a back size and I'm 18 weeks. I am currently wearing a 38JJ. I am worried that once I start BF'ing that I won't be able to find anything to fit.
Why aren't there bigger cup sizes for nursing bra's? Also why don't they offer more support like soft flex wires?
I have exactly the same problem as CMOTDibbler - 36B with a lot of space between my breasts. I've more or less given up on finding a bra that fits. Help! Also, why don't bras come in half sizes? I actually think a 35 would fit me better, but they don't exist...
Would second the 26 back bras. I have a slim (not underweight, just narrow) but quite well developed 13 year old. She is currently in a 28B but the cups are now too small so we will have to source a 28C. These are very difficult to find.
However, really 28 is much too wide for her. She has the band on the tightest fit and it is still too loose. She's really a 26C and therefore we cannot find a bra to fit her properly. As she's so narrow I can't see this improving, just getting worse as her cup size increases. How can I find her a bra to wear?
