Bra help needed!!

I'm 25 weeks pregnant with number 3 and getting desperate with finding the right size bra!! I'm measuring around a 36G and the high street shops are either struggling to find me something in stock or struggling to find me anything to fit properly. My boobs are ether squeezed in to a sort of mono bra or the bras' so big it's cutting in to my arm pits! Any advice please?! Good shops for big boobed ladies?! shock Liz

I've gone up to 34G and found Bravissimo amazing. Not sure if you'll have one near you but worth the trip if you do.

I second the vote for Bravissimo, only made it to an E cup but found that they had the most comfortable bras for my size. They are expensive so you could go in, get fitted maybe buy one bra and then look out for online sales. Their clothes (Pepperberry) are also the most flattering things I have ever worn as they are specifically cut for bigger boobs. Again, they're expensive but you can get some great deals on ebay once you know your size.

I discovered Bravisimo last year and have never looked back! 32FF pre pregnancy, up to a 32GG now at 13+2, still in underwire with good support, really comfy and they give great advice!

For nights I've just got a 2 pack of stretchy non wired crop top type bras from asda, growing out of these already though! hmm

M&S??

I use them and they seem to have decent maternity ones and not too expensive

Try figleaves website, I have moderate sized chest but small back and they have a good range of sizes.

I've just ordered a two pack of 36H from Debenhams. I am usually a 34F but anticipating growth I have ordered up!

They were £22 for a two pack which I thought was very reasonable.

Thanks for your help all. I'm off Monday so will take a trip to Bravissimo (lucky kids!).

God love Bravissimo. I have huge boobs (34 JJ at the mo, 38 weeks) and they are the only high street shop I haven't been laughed or forced out of with a "there isn't anything we can do for you". Not a massive choice in nursing and soft cups but still the best out there. X

I just got a pack of two from Mothercare as didn't want to spend loads, they don't do many big sizes but I managed to get these ones in a 34f they do come in g too.

They don't seem too bad so far.

Mothercare had loads of big cups last time I was in there

I would say don't spend too much - my boobs were a different size every week in my first pregnancy! I got soft cup cheapo ones from M and S outlet every few weeks, better to have properly fitting ones than nice bras that will be useless very soon.

www.brastop.com/ is also good for D-K cups, they often have sales on, so is worth checking there if you know your size. No specific maternity/nursing bras though
