Recomendations for underwire feeding bras for the big busted ladies

I posted a few weeks ago about my ever expanding breasts and getting them measured.

I've now managed to pull my back so will have to measure myself at home. I know there was a post a few months ago about this, but I can't seem to find it. Could anyone recommend underwire breast feeding bras for a lady who is currently 36H+?

I got some nice ones from Although they weren't wired and my boobs we 36F before pg.

Anita all the way if they do your size. pricey, but totally worth it.

Yes to Anita. I also rate Freya too, but Anita the best by a country mile,

Another vote for Anita, fab bras, totally stopped the frump in its tracks.

Anita vote here too! They have a size guide on figleaves.

I was a 34H before pregnancy last year. I went up to a 36?, not sure what. But flipping massive. Anyway the Anita came absolutely nowhere near fitting. I never found a wired bra that did.
Good luck. It was horrible not having a decent bra, so I feel your pain. Down to a 32? now, so back to R & P I go...

Anita here too, but h&m did some cheap ones too, can't remember what size but am large of nork and they fitted me.

Sorry for hijack but does anyone know if you can actually get uw feeding bras in 30 back? Anita start at 32.

The Anita sizing anomalies mean that they effectively only go up to a G hmm

The only true sized wired ones I've found have been the Elomi ones, which go up to a generous H in a 34-38 band. They don't go any smaller than 34 and I've not seen any wired 30's.

Ewa Michalak make a 30 AFAIK.

I'm a 30h at the moment. I wear manly Royce ones because they fit, but I hate them! Didn't mind in winter because I had lots of layers on to hide them! I converted a panache tango plunge bra using nursing clips from old bra and it works well. I don't wear it for everyday tho, because it's not comfy. Having said that I put on a bra I used to wear all the time to go out the other night and couldn't wait to get it off- must have got too used to soft cups!!

Manly Royce?? I meant mainly of course!
