I'm really suffering and wondering if anyone's been through similar and can give me some advice!
I've always been big chested but since pregnancy I've gone from a 32G to a 34J! I'm 24 weeks now and over the past few weeks have been experiencing progressively bad rib pain when I wear a bra. At first I took it as a sign that I needed to go up a back size, but I'm now getting it regardless of what size I wear - anything even remotely tight is causing me agony!
It's got to the point where I'm dreading having to go to work as by lunchtime I'm almost in tears with pain. Adjusting my posture (and shifting my bra strap around) helps a bit but nothing relieves it entirely except for taking my bra off. And at my size going braless in public is not an option!!
Has anyone experienced this and found anything that helps? Or any similarly large chested ladies found a good bra that is supportive without feeling restrictive?
Desperate for a solution!!
