Need some specific help - does anyone wear both elle mcpherson and cake nursing bras I need to order online without much opportunity to return them so I need a size comparison?

Pretty please.

I went into to John Lewis where they size you and then bought my size online, if that helps

Thanks but I don't live in UK and I am just not sufficiently confident that sizing is consistant across the brands, but I do know what size I am in elle mcpherson and emily b maternity so I was just hoping there was someone else out there with a penchant for nice bras who coul assist.

I have an Elle McP one and I think it's pretty true to size. (My new size) but not supportive AT ALL.

I had a Cake one and it was about the right size just bought in my normal size if you see what i mean. I really liked it and it was fairly supportive too - but it was an underwired nursing bra. I think the ones with no wire at all just aren't very supportive no matter what size you are.

Thanks smile

I agree the elle McP ones are not very supportive but since I seem to have less and less to support these days it's not so much of an issue!

The cake one I am after is underwired so that is good to know gourd

If you are of the heavy chest variety, Freya is a good brand and I rather like Hot Milk as it's a wink IYSWIM
