Large reusable breast pads

What are the best reusable/washable breast pads for large breasts? All the ones I've come across don't look big enough for me. Last time I favoured Boots disposable ultra slim ones because of their size.

Don't think I'm the right person to ask, think of French Fancies rather than large baps Grin

Hopefully this will bump for you though.

Two sizes available here: www.thenappylady.co.uk/washable-breastpads/washable-breast-pads.html

(I don't have that problem though, so not a personal recommendation, although I did use the 'normal' sized ones myself!)

Little lambs 13cm bamboo.
Utterly brilliant.
I also rate weenotions large ones, fleece topped triple layer.

Boots washable ones did fine for my 34i's. Never thought I'd miss being an e normally!

Ana wiz on Amazon - I have these and find them large (sometimes too large - I've not got big boobs). I really like the Tesco ones but I know in breastfeeding groups not many like them. They are thicker and I find stay in place better. Never had a problem with leaking with either of them πŸ™‚

Thank you all so much, lots to look into and explore Smile unfortunately my cloth nappy library doesn't lend pads, but I've had a feel of what she personally used (she's a mate, not weird ha) and they were all pretty small. I think I would favour ones with a waterproof backing, though I'm hoping not to leak so much this time. I expressed so had a ridiculous over-supply.
Anyway thanks!

I've not used them personally but have you seen the silicone pads? Apparently stop you leaking? Lily pads I think they are called. Anyway maybe another one for you to look at πŸ™‚

I have seen the silicone pads, but I've had mastitis a couple of times so I'd rather let whatever wants to come out, come out, IYSWIM!

Ohhh I've never thought of it like that but now you say it, definitely makes sense! Good luck anyway πŸ‘

I just bought Lilysworld bamboo ones from Amazon, they are quite big although I wouldn't say thick. I'm not a leaker though.
