This is my third, but I just can't remember.

Are the boobs bigger when breast feeding or bigger when pregnant,

Just bought an Elle McPherson feeding bra, as I mostly wore all the clippy bras while pregant too. It is slightly to big.

Will i grow in to it?

Come on you lot know EVERYTHING, even how big my boobs will get, surely.

Bigger when b/f in my experience (am on 3rd too) I've now got 7 weeks to go and they've just expanded again so I think yours may still get bigger

God, they are like comedy sand bags already. This bra is a 36E, eugh!

Right gonna keep it then. It was 34 quid, but if will last through feeding then thats cool.

spotted it on my mate who was breastfeeding and she looked so glam an dlacy, never seen anyone look glam breastfeeding before!!

Mine haven't grown at all!!!!!!! So jealous! I'm at a 34B and haven't moved up in the slightest!! And now, at 26+5 they are leaking... so I'm worried they'll get even smaller!
I have heard to wait until the baby comes to get fitted for the bf bras... you just can't predict it... and as someone else on another thread once said, "the shops will still be open once the baby is born". I love that line... keep reminding myself of it!!

up to 23 weeks - normal 34D
24 weeks - 38 C
30 weeks, now, 38 DD

Ladies in M&S, Mothercare and John Lewis recommend getting nursing bra 2 or 3 weeks before due date as rib cage will shrink once bubba is born, but bazookas will grown when milk comes in. They fit the nursing bras differently. I think, band fits on widest fitting (so you can go to smallest when ribs go down) and up a cup size.

I was a 30-32 G pre pregnancy and am now a 34 GG at almost 40 weeks so not much change! Wait till you have the baby and get fitted at a proper corsetiere like Bravissimo or Rigby and Peller. Rule of thumb, if they get a tape measure out, walk away. Just the other day, a woman on my thread was 'measured' in Mothercare as a 40C/D but when she went to Bravissimo for a 'fitting' she was a 38FF. I had a similar experience in M&S 15 years ago and have since gone for a fitting every 6 months, not a tape in sight! So important to wear the right bra size at this time, unlike 85% of `british women!! You're always smaller in the back and bigger in the cup than you think.
