i really should know this by now seeing its baby #3 lol.
but whens the best time to get measured? current bras still fit, but no way i can use them for feeding as they are very supportive and cant easily pop a breast out IYKWIM.

John Lewis advised me to wait until 2 weeks before due date.

Eh, if you buy any before the baby's born, don't buy a lot, or stick to relatively unfitted bras. I changed size quite significantly after the birth this time, and had to go shopping for properly fitted supportie bras.

another thing, where can i get some with large back fittings? i am a 44C atm, and its virtually impossible to buy a nromal bra without ordering them in.

misdee - try these bra expanders if you still have problems - I've just bought some as all my maternity bras are getting too tight now and I didn't want to buy a load more at this late stage!

Yes misdee, I got caught out leaving it two weeks before! Waters broke at 6 am, check up in hospital at lunchtime as no contractions, emergency bra shopping with wet trousers (waters!) that afternoon (not to mention the tens machine, sleep suits maternity towels !!} Good luck!

you've got me worried now. Maybe I'll go 3 weeks before due date!
