Nursing Bras for smaller back but bigger boobs!

(19 Posts)

at the moment im a 30F, when I had my DS my boobs just went absolutely huge but then I lost loads of weight and have since had a breast uplift and implants, after I had my DS I was about 34G.....not bad.....easy to find due to back size being 34....I have searched and searched for nursing bras with a smaller back and bigger cup size but anything less than a 34 seems to stop at a a push a DD, obviously towards the end with the bump im more than likely to end up in a 32 for comfort but I will definitely be making sure I have well fitting bras after spending a small fortune on getting them "fixed" after my last pregnancy!

Any suggestions where can I find some?

Nursing bra shop (Google it) has 28 backs on large cup sizes with some Royce bras. Have just ordered more for me but still up at a 34 back as ribcage expanded a fair amount. Very quick delivery.

fab thanks random will try that one. Thought I had managed to visit every site on google but must have missed that one.

I'm a 32E and got my nursing bras in the figleaves sale section. Picked up a few lovely ones reduced to ten pounds each.

Bravissimo, I'm a 32F. I thought their fitting service was fantastic.

Thanks obviously not looking hard enough blush

I also got 32e bras from mothercare

buy normal bras and coversion kits from ebay - you will have loads more choice, better prices and most importanly, better support.

its the price that's bothering me on the few sites I have seen (£40 for one bra shock) Katharina so that may be a good idea! never thought of that....I have to wear matching sets (slight OCD) and I usually have really pretty sets so looking at some of the nursing bras is making me want to cry grin will have a look at that now thank you.

Havent seen any on Mothercare Dixie will have to keep my eyes peeled.

Hotmilk is a very unfortunate name Mrs but will check that out too thank you.

Freya do a nursing bra in 28/30 backs - I grabbed one in a 30HH on Figleaves the other week for 70% off.

KatharinaRosalie Mon 09-Nov-15 13:45:05

Yup exactly, I'm a 30GG at the moment, and at that size, the choice in nursing bras is pretty much limited to either wearing one, or not. grin And I don't want to pay tons of money for ugly unsupportive matronly bras either. Converting is dead easy and suddenly you can choose between hundreds of pretty, affordable bras (ebay, Brastop etc).

I love the hotmilk bras. Honestly the figleaves sale section is great. If you are not due until the new year I would hit the january sales on the figleaves website. Lovely sets.

Everythinggettingbigger Mon 09-Nov-15 14:47:07

ooo great idea Dixie didn't think of the January sales, I'm actually not due until May but reality keeps hitting that's there is possibly only 4 pay days after Christmas before baby arrives!

Bravissimo are amazing, just got myself some nursing bras. For being a 34h its the first time I have ever felt so compfy in a bra. Maybe ask for vouchers for Christmas too? You'll want to get remeasured every few months anyway.

I'd wait. Went from pre pregnancy 30H to 34J now I'm feeding. Couldn't bear an underwire from pretty early on either. Royce from Nursing Bra Shop under £25 so cheaper than my normal bras

I do recommend the Royce bras (mostly as less and less nursing bras come in my current J/K cup).
They can be a bit 'pointy' (50's shape) but are very comfy.

I bought a 34G nursing bra from mothercare at the weekend for £18. They don't seem to be on their website but they are in the shops. The lady who helped me said they did go up to a H or a J but they weren't in the prettiest of styles. They also had a double pack of a white and a black for £30 I think. Hope you find one that fits!

I also recommend the Nursing Bra Shop. Have all different sizes. Specifically love the hotmilk first light ivory one - it's so comfy, looks nice and gives good shape for a non wire. It's about £26 I think but I'm about to order another one as it's so comfy.
