DC2 is almost 2 weeks and I'm ready to ditch the comfy pj's and wear real clothes again. Am a size 22 with mahoosive boobs. Have the H&M breastfeeding tops, but they are actually a little too small and make me look like Lolo Ferrari. Any tips?

strappy top under another looser top or t-shirt. Lift that one up, pull the strappy one down a bit and voila - comfortable feeding without getting half-naked.
(doesn't quite answer your question but I never found any breastfeeding tops that weren't overly fiddly or flapping open.)

Sorry for the late response Hazle.
I haven't found any strappy tops that fit well enough to do that with. They are either too short, or the straps aren't stretchy enough or there isn't enough room for my boobs. Might have to have another look around next time I'm out shopping.

I was similar proportions to you (40H boobs) and wore vests from Gap, mostly. The ones with thin lacy straps easily stretched down under boob. Also some Sainsburys ones. Then loose ish t-shirt on top.

I could never get on with bf tops as they seemed designed for the small of breast.

LOL at Lolo Ferarri!!! Next maternity/ bf stuff is a generous 22. I also found it harder to be discreet with big boobs and that feeding tops were more geared towards ladies with more modest boobage.

I found some tops at M&S today! I tested them out and they are stretchy enough to pull down and whip out a boob.
Agree with it being impossible to be discreet. If I am out I always use a breastfeeding cover. No ideal as it's makes feeding a more fussy and warm affair, but I would feel to exposed without one.
