Hello! This is my first post on a forum ai never thought U would get to It's early days, I'm only 5 weeks gone, but my boobs (which were big before) are killing me. I am trying to sleep in a sports bra just for support! Can anyone recommend decent bras that will help,er, take the strain...?
I have found the genie bra good, boobs were 34E previously, now 7+4 and boobs substantially bigger and VERY tender, also they do seem to change day by day so genie bra quite good for keeping up with the changes. They recommend you choose your dress size but I chose the size up as was more comfy and better coverage for bigger boobs but still supportive.
For what it's worth - I got the emma jane next generation nursing bra for night time and although there is a bit of monoboob (kind of inevitable when you are rolling from left to right side etc), it's pretty supportive and comfortable. Its good that you can get it in your back size and cup size (I'm a 34E). I go up to a G cup post birth so no idea if it will still work for then, but it's pretty stretchy and might still do for nights. It's cheap too. For day I stay with underwired, just get bigger sizes as I cannot bear no wires and the monoboob look. Plus, it's uncomfy. Anyway, I'm always on the look out for these things so I thought I'd add my piece!
