I bought new bras today and I already feel better. Mine are so feckin sore, a sharp intense pain deep in both breasts. Made 110% worse if I carry one of my children and they squish them. It's awful. I have large boobs too, 38DDD (!) but tbh they don't seems that big to look at them, thankfully. I bought good maternity/ nursing bras, WITH underwire because soft cups are a one-way-ticket to pain frankly. These are the best maternity/nursing bras I've ever had, I always found it almost impossible to get good ones before.
Maybe try new bras?

Are you still wearing underwire bras? Have you been refitted since you became pregnant? If not that should help.

There are heated/cooling breast pads you can get which help too:

They are also fantastic for once you are breast feeding.
