I HATE all my bras today even the expensive ones are all so physically uncomfortable and shit I feel shredding them up and tossing them all out. It's possible I have PMT but also please give me your own comfy bras ideas ? I know they exist somewhere ....

40 weeks pregnant and living in sports bra right now... what size are you?

Have you seen the fb page boobsorbust? It's a complete revelation. A lot of shops and methods for measuring bras are far off making what you wear far from fit you correctly. It has a measuring calculator and tips on what style suit, admins you can ask questions of and other Bob ladies you can ask for advice from. I went from a 36D to a 32FF and that's how most folk go. Good luck.

I gave up wearing them! Horrible things. I'm lucky that I'm only a B cup though so no need for support.

You need one of the bra intervention ladies, I'm sure they'll be along in a minute. It's not just size (though lots of people have been 'fitted' by M&S and are in a size that bears no relation to the size they actually are) but also the style and the brand. There will almost certainly be something out there that fits and is comfy, but it may take a while to find it. And it might be expensive.

If you're above a D cup, Bravissimo is an excellent place to start.

Check you're wearing the right size, measure yourself like this.

As I've changed weight, got pregnant, breastfed, gained weight, lost weight etc my boobs have taken the brunt of it and hardly ever had a bra that felt comfy.

I'm currently a 34G and Curvy Kate Daily Dream is the only style I wear. Really comfy and a more flattering look. I've got several different colours and two each of black and white. Stumbled on it by chance after getting on in a sale. This one actually feels like it's supporting my boobs.

I agree about it's not just size. I've been measured a million times and even different ones in same size just aren't the same. Shape and style also become increasingly important if bigger boobed in my experience. I've had terrible experiences of being tried to be flogged whatever they have in stock but obviously wrong size and great experiences where they actually have some in my size in stock, but still won't sell to me because not a perfect fit - order some in and tell me to come back and try those! Bravissimo, if you have one close have been one of the better ones.

i am pregnant, 38K and in non underwired bras. I dont think i'll ever go back to the pretty but totally unsuitable horrors I used to wear. I didnt think a supportive non wired bra even existed at this size but it does!
