How many cup sizes?

I thought a little survey might be interesting/fun. How many bra cup sizes have you gone up during your pregnancy? I have (so far) gone up from a C to a G. How can this be possible? Surely they can't get any bigger? I unearthed one of my pre-pregnancy bras today and was just shocked at the change in size.

So far, from D to F, and I'm getting fitted again next weekend because my F cup bras are leaving lacy imprints all over my boobs. I'm currently 24+6, if it helps. How far along are you?

I went from a c to a GG in last pregnancy and in this one so far (i'm 33 wks) I have gone from a B to an E!!! I'm pretty sure that when pregnant, anything is possible!!!!!!

19 weeks at the moment, although I think there is a little room for growth in the G cup.

OMG. shock Aren't they supposed to grow again when breastfeeding? Going to check Bravissimo to see how many sizes are left...

C to an F although that's far too tight when I'm ready to feed.

ummmm, in both my pregnancies, went from a B cup to a ...... C cup, wow! Clearly not blessed in that department!

A to a DD grin

B to a D at 18 weeks (which is annoying because i've only got one D-cup but two E-cup and 3 F-cup breastfeeding bras left over from DC1

Really hope I grow into the larger ones soon so I can spare the cost of all these in-between sizes!

naomiclarke1987 Wed 17-Nov-10 20:50:44

i've gone from E to HH! i'm 38 weeks now, lets hope they don't get any bigger!

D to G by 19 weeks, at 21 now and so far no more... lets see what jappens hen this milk appears... my DH amusingly says he thinks the alabhabet wont be big ebnough. thank god for bravissimo, only company to have got me good bras so far!

C to a B

[sigh]

I did go from a 40 chest to a 44 though.

'Oh no, we don't have any in THAT size'

When I was first up the duff and told workmates, one of my colleagues and I went to Mothercare to buy me a bra. (I'd read that 2 sizes was normal).

I had a real life looking at the HH cups, demonstrating my maturity by putting them on my head and howling with laughter at their size.

I was rather ashamed to return my EE cup pregnancy bra (I was then a D) to buy that HH cup that caused me such mirth the day before (and even then it was a bit small!)
I assume it was something to do with them not being underwired as I hadn't noticed that I'd got 4 boobs.

Incidently I ditched the pregnancy bras and returned to underwired ones as I couldn't bear the lack of support. (Apparently, under wires can encourage blocked milk ducts, though this never happened to me).

I believe, I win!wink

Well there are still a few more letters left to try. Phew!

MarniesMummy Wed 17-Nov-10 22:22:25

I had real fun, not real life.
That'll teach me to watch TV and type.

autumnberry Wed 17-Nov-10 22:23:29

Ha, ha MM. I tried out a baby hat for size.

japhrimel Thu 18-Nov-10 09:20:03

I've gone from a C to a FF and am now 36 weeks. I'd highly recommend getting fitted at Bravissimo. Mothercare can be a bit useless at it and so many people end up with the wrong size bra! Underwired bras are fine as long as they fit perfectly, but for most women that means replacing them often which is expensive.

With dd I went from an A to D, the only place I got stretch marks were the bottom of my boobs, this time have gone from a C to DD so far (currently 34wks). Have bought one set of bra extenders as was 34 now approx 38? May need to get more bra extenders soon though as ds seems to be pushing his way up and under my ribs!

frakkinup Thu 18-Nov-10 12:21:14

An F to an F....although they seem rounder/fuller somehow.

18 + 5

nancydrewrocked Thu 18-Nov-10 12:27:10

A DD to an F, but I have gone up a back size for comfort which would mean a G if I had stayed a 34.

I am finding maternity bras so variable in size at the moment they really bare no relation to either each other ir reality so everything needs to be tried on - very annoying when the best selection is online.

youngblowfish Thu 18-Nov-10 12:34:23

Only 18+4 and I have already gone from a modest 32b/c to a heavy 32dd. I find this sudden generosity of mother nature rather unnecessary at the moment. Still can't quite believe that the massive bras I keep picking up from the bedroom floor are mine!

autumnberry Thu 18-Nov-10 19:24:41

I felt compelled to leave a lovely pre-preg dainty lacy bra (with thin straps!) on DP's chest of drawers this morning to remind him that the hanger bras won't be forever (I hope!).

Mumbybumby Thu 18-Nov-10 19:32:13

1st PG from 32DD to 34G and up to H while BFing.
Back to 32G normally.
Now PG again at 27 weeks up to 34H but that's a little on the tight side after my ribs expanding all night last night so probably going up to a 36.
Here's hoping they don't grow much more! hmm

Bunbaker Thu 18-Nov-10 19:35:11

Sigh. I went from an AA to an A, even when breastfeeding. In fact when I breastfed I didn't even bother wearing a bra.

blondieminx Thu 18-Nov-10 22:34:32

from an A to a DD while feeding, now back down to a C
